I know that we are all feeling the strain of what seems like a situation that changes by the minute. Of course, everything is local and what some may be dealing with in one part of our state may be drastically different in another.
You may have already developed your toolbox and created a resource center on your website for families, but we have also been working to collect examples of what OHSPRA members are assembling across the state in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Thank you to members of our OHSPRA Board for submitting examples of resources and messaging they have been using in their communities. Thank you to our President-elect, Lou DeVincentis for taking the time today to put these in one place on our new OHSPRA website. Also, thank you to our director of communications, Kurt Moore who will be adding to this as it grows with more ideas for communicating to families, staff and community.
If you missed the email from our director of membership, Alicia Mowry earlier today, here are some instructions on how to create your new account on Ohspra.org if you have not had a chance to do so.
[On behalf of the Ohio School Public Relations Board, I’m thrilled to share with you that our new website has launched! This new site will add opportunities to collaborate and share best practices with each other. The username & password you used on the old web site will no longer work on the new website. Please visit this page to build your new profile – it will only take a few moments of your time. https://www.ohspra.org/protected/MemberProfile.aspx]
Please note that to login to the site after your account is created and you return to the site, simply click the small downward-arrow in the upper right hand corner of the site near the social media icons, as the login feature will appear in a drop down.
We are here to help support you wherever you are in the process or in the state.
Thank you and let’s work through all of this together.
Hang in there,
Ohio School Public Relations Association
