Protocol Update for 2021-2022 at Fort Recovery Local Schools
The entire staff would like to extend our appreciation to the students, parents and community members for their efforts to curtail the spread of the COVID19 virus during the last school year. The schools in Mercer County were fortunate to have in class learning continuously from August 2020 to May 2021. We are prepared for an exciting school year full of in class learning opportunities for all of our students.

Changes for 21-22:

The wearing of masks will be optional for this school year. This means that parents and students who wish to wear a mask at school and for school activities will be supported in their decision by the staff of FRLS.

The only limits to event occupancy will be based on maximum room and facility limitations.

There will not be any requirements for social distancing in our classrooms or at events.

The school drinking fountains will be turned back on. However, our students will still be permitted and encouraged to utilize the water bottle filling stations which were added in 2020.

Safety Protocols which remain in place for 21-22:

Our staff will continue to provide hand sanitizer stations, maintain rigorous cleaning cycles in each building and encourage frequent hand washing.

Most permanent safety glass and plexiglass barriers will remain in place in our offices and cafeterias.

We will continue to monitor the situation. Changes based on variants or other health concerns are always possible during the 2021-2022 school year.
Learning Recovery and Extended Learning Plan

Search of FRHS by K-9 Units
  • Officers from local law enforcement agencies conducted a search of the high school premises with their respective K-9 units on Monday, May 10, 2021. The K-9 units search serves many important purposes for providing a safe academic environment for everyone connected with the educational system. It also serves as an appropriate training exercise for all participants, especially the dogs.

    Prior to the officers initiating the search, the faculty, students and staff were informed of the situation via the public address system and the building went into a “lockdown.” During this type of lockdown classroom teachers proceed with their normal course instruction so that the learning process is not interrupted. Our students and staff conducted themselves appropriately as directed.

Press Release 8-8-2020

Superintendents in Mercer County met with Governor Mike DeWine via phone conference on Saturday, August 8, 2020 along with the Mercer County Health District and Mercer Health. We were able to share how we are working together to prepare for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Governor DeWine is most concerned about community spread and how this could impact our ability to return to all regular activities. We all want our schools, sports and music programs to continue to thrive so it’s important to consider how our community can help make this happen. 

We know that having our children in school and providing structure is vital to their academic success as well as their social and emotional wellness. We also recognize that returning to school five days a week will allow us to model and reinforce practices that will mitigate the spread of covid. We are committed to taking care of our students and staff as we return to school. We also recognize that it is important for us to model and provide opportunities to impact what our students are doing outside of school to stop the spread of covid. 

Additionally, we were informed that the written order for face coverings will be issued on Monday. Based on our conversation with Governor DeWine, we feel this order allows for practical implementation and local flexibility. We appreciated the opportunity to speak directly with Governor DeWine about the health and safety of our community and the importance of opening our schools this fall. We look forward to the 2020-2021 school year! 

District Re-Fortification Plan
  • FRLS will implement recommended safety protocols to the highest degree possible.

  • FRLS will work closely with the MCHD to promote safety in each school building.

  • FRLS will be transparent with all stakeholders that some level of risk will always be present when students and school district employees occupy school district facilities.

  • FRLS recognizes the need for consistency in areas of operations, while recognizing that individual differences in classroom sizes, school facilities, and building operations may lead to some inconsistencies.
