• Alert:

    Good Afternoon.  I'm writing to let you know about an important matter. It has been brought to our attention that individuals are calling residents asking for donations to pay for student lunch account debt. Alexander Local Schools does not support these calls and they are very likely fraudulent. Please note the phone number and report any suspicious calls to the Athens County Sheriff's office at 740-593-6633.  Mr. Hampton Superintendent, Alexander Local School District.

Close alert
