Update for Parents



Thanks to all of our families for your patience and understanding as we work through the bumps in the road surrounding our distance learning plan and its implementation.  And while we are still working out some of the kinks, I have some information regarding that plan that I’d like to share.


First, we are working on acquiring hotspots and getting those to families.  If you are one of these families, someone should be contacting you very soon.  Also, for those that wish to access wi-fi from a vehicle, it is now accessible from the hs/ms parking lot.  You can also access public wi-fi at the Grange building parking lot in Amesville, the library in Coolville, or various spots at OU in Athens.  That information is on our website.


Second, we have identified those students that would need to be transported into our building in order to access the internet.  This will begin on Tuesday morning and we will do this twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  Someone will contact you in order to let you know an approximate time for pick-up on those mornings.  Those students will be here for 3 hours and will leave the school around 11:15 and should arrive home shortly thereafter.  If you are not contacted by Monday afternoon and believe you should’ve been, please give us a call to let us know.


Third, families are still able to pick up food at the school building nearest your home.  Pick-up day is Wednesday between 12 and 2 PM.


Finally, there have been some questions about students attending school on Fridays.  While we are asking for weekly work to be turned in on Thursday afternoons, students should still log in for attendance purposes on Friday.  They should also be checking email and their Google Classroom pages just to keep up with any new information.  Some teachers are actually posting work on Fridays, so students that wish to can begin working on those assignments if they choose..  


Thanks everyone.  As always, please contact us with any issues or concerns you may have.  .Be safe and have a nice evening and wonderful weekend!

 As always, please call 740-662-6691 with any questions or concerns you might have.
