(Ohio) – Today Governor Mike DeWine announced all Ohio K-12 schools will be closed through the end of the school year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
All in-person classes had previously been canceled through May 1st, but DeWine noted the extension in the closure during his daily press conference Monday afternoon. “We have flattened the curve, but it remains dangerous,” he explained.
DeWine went on to indicate he is “not in a position” at this time to say whether or not schools will reopen as normal at the start of the next school year in August. He did suggest a possibility of what he’s deemed ‘blended’ learning. This would be where students attend some classes in person and others remotely with each district likely being different.
