Today, Sunday, March 22, 2020, the Ohio Director of Health, under the authorization of Governor DeWine, issued a stay at home order for the State of Ohio. Fort Recovery Local Schools will continue to serve as the primary PK-12, educational organization for our school community. On Monday, we will continue utilizing the Emergency Remote Learning Plan with no changes at this time.
As previously stated, the first item on the Parents/Students tab of the district website is labeled CoronaVirus INFO / Emergency Remote Learning. It is there that you will find links, resources and information specific to the Fort Recovery ERL Plan.
As we strive to meet the educational needs of our students, teaching staff members will continue to be available electronically each weekday through the current closure period, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and again from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Our entire school staff will provide responsive interaction from school or through their work-from-home connections. Please continue to monitor our website and social media pages for updates during this school closure period.
School district emails will be the most direct line of communication for parents, guardians and students if your question is not addressed on our website and social media pages. Starting tomorrow, our district and school phones will remain connected, however, they will be used for incoming voicemail messages only.
Last week, approximately 40% of our free and reduced students participated in our School Closure Lunch Program at the EMS building. We are waiting for further guidance from the state agencies on whether this service is permitted to continue under the “Stay at Home” order issued today.
We, as a school district staff, are in our homes, as directed, ready to assist you in any way possible.
