Elks Back to School in 2020-21
Current Instructional Mode
Centerville Schools will reopen schools to students on Tuesday, Jan. 19, with students learning in-person on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesdays, K-12 students will continue to learn remotely from home on the current abbreviated schedule. The district also will continue to offer remote learning with Centerville teachers and curriculum as an option for those families that are unable or uncomfortable returning to school buildings.
As we continue the 2020-21 school year during the COVID-19 public health emergency, we are adjusting our learning models to balance educational needs with health and safety protocols, based on guidance and considerations from the Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Health and other public health experts. Our plans are rooted in the following principles:
- Safeguarding the health and safety of our school community
- Ensuring effective and equitable teaching and learning opportunities
- Supporting the emotional well-being of students and staff
- Providing an essential service to our community
Please keep in mind that all plans are fluid and could change rapidly based on the spread of virus in our schools. We appreciate your flexibility and patience, and we will keep our school community informed in the coming weeks and throughout the school year.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and take guidance from the Ohio Department of Education, Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County, the Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
