District offering breakfast, lunch for students who qualify for Ohio's free and reduced-price meal program
The health and well-being of our students and staff are a priority at Centerville City Schools. With so much attention on the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are using this page to share what we are doing to prepare and reinforce preventative safety measures. This page will be updated frequently, so please check back often.
Governor DeWine has announced that K-12 schools in Ohio would close for at least three weeks. Centerville School buildings will close at the end of the school day Friday, March 13 through at least Friday, April 3. All extracurricular activities will be cancelled beginning March 13 until further notice.
As a school district, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking guidance from Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County, the Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are also discussing plans and procedures with our school nurses and building principals and ordering supplies as needed.

How You Can Help
Prevention is a key strategy with any virus, such as influenza or coronavirus, so it is important to both protect yourself and take measures against spread to others. The CDC recommends these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of viruses (see image below as well):
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
The Ohio Department of Health opened a call center to answer questions from the public regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). The call center will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and can be reached at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).
