The plan has been updated to reflect the changes issued by the Ohio Department of Health related to face masks. 

By clicking the link you will be able to view our  Please understand that our plan will continue to evolve as new information and recommendations are issued by federal, state and local agencies. With our ever-changing environment we expect that the protocols and guidelines implemented will change as the local conditions change and sometimes at a moments notice.   

We take our responsibilities to our students very seriously, and we will continue to monitor COVID-19 with health officials, implement revised safety protocols as needed, and provide updates to our families when we have them.  

As we transition back to school next month, we are asking for your help in keeping our buildings as healthy as we can by following our district’s guidelines, encouraging your child to always wear a face covering as outlined in the reopening plan, pledging to report your child’s illness, and keeping your child at home when necessary.  

Sincerely,

Roni Hayes
