Guy L. Parmigian, Ph.D.
Welcome to the Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools! It is a privilege to serve as the Superintendent of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District and to be responsible for providing our students with world-class educational programming, as well as exceptional co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. The committed staff of B-C-S work each day to prepare our students for the challenges of citizenship, post-secondary education, and careers. As Superintendent, I am committed to working closely with our Treasurer and Board of Education to ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent efficiently and effectively. In addition, I am also committed to building strong relationships within our community, and to keeping lines of communication open. Parents, families, and all district stakeholders must work together in the interests of all B-C-S students. Let us honor our past and continue to build for the future!

I want you to know that the decision to delay or close school is one of my most important responsibilities. Each situation is judged on a case by case basis with the safety of students being the most important consideration. When we have news of impending hazardous weather ranging from fog to snow, we spend a great deal of time monitoring forecasts, driving roads to check conditions, and talking with local officials.
As a general rule, the decision to call a two hour delay of school is made and communicated by 6:00 AM. If we are on a two hour delay, the decision to close school is made and communicated by 8:00 AM. The primary communication is through the Honeywell Instant Alert System. It is critical that you keep your phone number updated. If you need to update your phone number, please notify the Board Office at (419) 898-6210. The decision to close or delay school is also communicated to local TV and radio stations.
Our school district also shares a great deal of news and information using social media and a “Benton-Carroll-Salem LSD” App for smart phones. We encourage you to download our App, and to follow us on our social media platforms. Please see the reverse side of this letter for more information.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have. Below is a listing of key district phone numbers.
