Dear Parents and Guardians,
Governor Mike DeWine’s most recent decision to close schools presents some unique opportunities for Ohio’s educational system. It offers schools a chance to be flexible, creative, and innovative in how we educated students. Recently, public schools have been referring to remote learning as a solution. By moving to a remote learning platform, students are able to receive an education while reducing risk factors associated with human contact.
School will be closed from Monday, March 16, 2020 until Friday, April 3, 2020. The school will cancel all extra-curricular and co-curricular activities during this period of time. Staff will continue to offer instructional opportunities to students. Online, or remote learning, instructional opportunities will begin on or before Monday, March 23, 2020.
The Napoleon, Florida, and McClure Public Libraries will remain open and have free Wi-Fi for students and parents. Please take advantage of this opportunity. If students require hard copies of materials, opportunities will be made available. Students should communicate those requests directly to their respective teachers.
The Third Quarter grading period will end on Friday, March 20, 2020. Student grade cards will be mailed home on Friday, March 27, 2020.
Students who are currently on school sponsored trips will have access to the building on Monday, March 16, 2020. If your child is still working on making up items associated with his or her coursework, they will be able to provide it to the teacher. Staff will be working on Monday, March 16, 2020, as well as over the course of the next three weeks.
We understand that there will be many questions from families and employees in the coming days. We are working very hard to share answers as they become available. Many of our answers will depend on direction from outside agencies such as the Ohio Department of Education and state & local health departments. We will send updates to employees and families as they become available.
Mr. Ryan J. Wilde
