GRADING REMOTE LEARNING ASSIGNMENTS AND FOURTH QUARTER GRADES
I wanted to speak to our students and parents about the Remote Learning Assignments and fourth quarter grades. We have provided a safety net for students in grades 7-12 to receive a grade no lower than their first, second, and third quarter average. Students in grades K-6 will receive met or not met expectations. Both are available for students completing work. However, we are seeing cases where no work is being turned in. Students not completing any assignments run the risk of failing the fourth quarter. For grades 7-12, this could potentially impact final grades, credits, and athletic eligibility for the fall. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or principal if you have yet to complete assignments and let’s finish this school year strong. -Matt Bishop, Superintendent

REMOTE LEARNING ASSIGNMENT LINKS
The following are links to each school buildings Remote Learning Assignments for the month of April. The new assignments will be posted on the afternoon of Monday, May 4th. The paper assignments turned in on May 4th will be picked up by staff members the following week. It is recommended that we leave the papers still for a period of time to make sure they are safe to touch. Once the assignments are graded, they will be reported into ProgressBook. We ask for your patience as we end the school year.
Jr/Sr High School
We will continue to provide breakfast and lunches on Wednesday’s throughout the closure (May 20th will be the final food distribution from Preble Shawnee Schools). The weekly pickup is between 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Jr/Sr High School ONLY. Please drive to the rear of the building along the curb and stop near the courtyard with the steps leading to the second floor. Remain in your vehicle to limit exposure and we will bring the items to you. Please be sure to sign up for the Summer Meal program as pictured below.
As per legislation passed by the Ohio House and Senate and signed by the Governor, there will be no testing for the spring.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Our mental health professionals are reaching out to families to ensure they have open lines of communication during the closure and to make alternative plans if necessary. Our mental health counselors will be monitoring emails and reaching out to our school families in need. Teletherapy and in-person sessions will be an option for meeting with your school-based therapist.
