An Update for Return to School in August

Mt. Healthy City School District plans to return to in-person learning this August, unless healthcare experts, the Ohio Department of Education, and/or Governor DeWine advise otherwise. The safety and well-being of our students and staff remain a top priority.  Thus, we are working to create a restart plan that will guide us in welcoming students back to the classrooms with an “as close to normal as possible” experience in August, while also taking necessary precautionary measures to keep students and staff safe.  

 

A robust, comprehensive online option will also be offered at each of our schools as an alternative to in-person learning for families who prefer their student(s) continue learning remotely. The Remote Learning will be aligned with researched-based online pedagogy to include video instruction, grading, and attendance. 

 

Given the uncertainty of what restrictions will be in place when school restarts in August, we are also designing contingency plan scenarios.  To assist us in our planning, we want to hear from our MTHCS families about their plans and comfort level regarding their child(ren) returning to school this fall, as well to gather feedback on contingency scenarios. Each scenario is focused on prioritizing health and safety, while also being responsive to the needs of our students and families.  The survey related to virtual learning and the return to school in August can be accessed by this link or on our district web page until 6/30/20.
