I wanted to touch base with our students, staff, and families about our restart plan for the 2020-2021 school year. We are currently waiting on guidance from Governor DeWine, Ohio Department of Education, and/or Ohio Department of Health. As soon as that guidance is released, the district administration will meet to review the guidelines/requirements for reopening schools. The principals and supervisors will spend approximately 1-2 weeks with their building leaders to develop a safe plan for their respective area. The district administration will meet to review all plans and submit final plans for approval, possibly to the Ashtabula County Department of Health. Once all plans have been finalized and approved, I will share the plans with the community. If you have concerns about your child returning to school, I ask that you review our plans when they are released. If you are still worried about your child's safety, please contact your child's building principal to discuss the concerns in greater detail. It is important that our students safely report back to school on August 24, 2020! When our plans are set to be released to the community, I will notify families via Facebook, Text Message, Email, and Phone Call. Until then, please stay healthy and enjoy your summer!
