Return to school

  • Due to public health concerns and the Ohio Public Health Advisory System’s continued level 3/red status for both Franklin and Licking counties, the entire district will be moved to the fully virtual educational option for the first quarter of the 2020-21 school year. All students will attend virtually through Fri, Oct. 23.
  • We have pushed back the first day of school for students from Wed., Aug. 19 to Mon., Aug. 31, to provide additional planning and professional development opportunities for our teaching staff and families. This extra time will be helpful as the board of education also approved a new learning management system.
  • We have devised an educational plan with two options: hybrid/in-person (tied to county risk levels and community alert indicators) or fully virtual. 
  • All district families must opt-in to either plan choice and complete their annual EMA form by Mon., Aug. 3. It is important that families respond as soon as possible so we can build student and staff schedules.


There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of diseases, including:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces .
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
