Dear Wolf Creek Schools Parents, Students  and Community,

I hope all had a relaxing 4th of July Weekend. With the July 4th weekend behind us, the opening of school is just around the corner.   Last Thursday Governor Dewine released  several documents and guidelines for the restart of school in August.  In addition, we are working with the Local Health Department to meet all necessary guidelines as we create our plan.  It is our goal to open school with all students attending everyday as “normal” as possible.  We believe that most families prefer this option of schooling.  However, we will also make other options available for those who want a different option of schooling in the Fall.

In order to meet these goals of opening school in a near “Normal” fashion.  We have been  and will continue to meet with staff to develop protocols and procedures to ensure safety of our students, staff, and school community.  We are also making plans to be prepared if we are required to close later in the year and move to remote learning. We will have everything in place to allow this to happen.

Items that we are currently working on:

  • How to ensure social distancing in the classrooms and on the school buses.  We are looking at the class lists and the bus routes to see what modifications need to be made.

  • We are looking at the purchase of additional sanitation items to ensure that surfaces and high contact areas are thoroughly cleaned.

  • We are working with the Local Health Department on notification and tracking methods. 

  • We are working on developing professional development for our staff to ensure that they have the training necessary to make this “new normal” successful. 

  • We are looking at lunch options and how to social distance and safely provide hot lunches to our students.

There will be more information in the coming weeks through our webpage, facebook, notification system and our summer newsletter.

Sincerely,

Douglas A.. Baldwin
