To the greatest extent possible, all decisions and instructional delivery will be based on what is best for our students academically, socially, and emotionally.  If a full return is not possible, we will do our best to schedule according to family groups.  Lastly, we will do everything possible to ensure the safety of students and staff.  Now we wait for further guidance and instruction from the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio Health Department, and Governor DeWine’s office. “
