Good Afternoon Bulldog Families, this is Dr. Edwin Holland, Interim Superintendent.
Thank you for your patience as the District team continues to monitor the increasing rate of COVID spread in the community. The District will return to in-person learning on Monday, November 30, 2020.
The spread of the virus continues to be a concern and we will be constantly monitoring the impact on our schools and operation of the District. Our initial intention was to “pause” in-person learning to break a cycle of rapidly rising number of individuals quarantined that effected the operation of the district. According to our estimates, we believe most of the quarantined should be released by Monday November 30th.
Therefore, we will resume our original in-person learning Monday, November 30th which also includes the remote learning option selected by our families. Due to the fluidity of the situation, school menus will be altered.
All District certified/classified/COG staff members will report to their designated assignments Monday November 30, 2020 as normal.
We are hopeful our District Families will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Ohio Department of Health when planning the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday. Bulldog Family decisions made during this holiday season will have a significant impact on the ability of the District to resume and maintain in-person instruction for the remainder of the calendar year.
If any member of your school family are tested and awaiting results, received positive results, or otherwise ordered to quarantine by the Health Department, please contact Cathy Fedor at email@example.com, (Grades K-2, 9-12) or Holly Lefoer at firstname.lastname@example.org (Grades 3-8)
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will continue to report positive cases in students and staff members on the website. In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday, school offices will be closed. For an immediate response, please contact the Mahoning County Health Department at (330)270-2855.
On behalf of the Board of Education, Administration and Staff, we hope that you and your family have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving Holiday.
Dr. Edwin Holland
Superintendent of Schools
