Due to the significant increase in COVID cases, quarantine notifications, symptomatic students and absences, Washington Nile Schools will be learning virtually January 13-19. We will be back on a regular schedule beginning January 20th. Students should log in to their google classroom to retrieve assignments. All extracurricular activities will be suspended during this period to include both practices and contests. Buses will not perform home pick-ups but will continue to operate from the high school to the CTC and other off campus locations. Staff members should report as regularly scheduled. Upon returning to in person instruction we will continue to require masking while indoors. Per Ohio Department of Health guidelines, by requiring masks in school, maintaining social distancing and following sanitation protocols, students will not have to quarantine due to a close in-school contact unless they become symptomatic or test positive. In order for students to return and remain in school and to participate in extracurricular activities, we ask that our families follow recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Ohio Department of Health including avoiding large gatherings, maintaining social distancing and masking. Our goal is to keep students healthy as well as keep them in school. We will continue to monitor the COVID data for our district as well as information from our local health department and continue to make needed adjustments in our return plan. Again, thank you for your continued support. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Due to the significant increase in COVID cases and quarantine notifications this fall, we have adjusted our return plan. Our goal is to keep students healthy as well as reduce the number of quarantines. Per Ohio Department of Health guidelines, by requiring masks in school, maintaining social distancing and following sanitation protocols, students will not have to quarantine due to a close contact unless they become symptomatic or test positive. Beginning Friday – August 27, 2021 It is REQUIRED that all staff and students wear masks when indoors and when using school transportation. ODH and the CDC assert that masks have been proven to be extremely effective in slowing the spread of the virus. We will continue to monitor the COVID data for our district as well as information from our local health department and continue to make needed adjustments in our return plan. Again, thank you for your continued support. Please continue to follow CDC and health department recommendations so that we are able to return to a more normal school setting as soon as possible.

Dear Parent/Guardian: As you are likely aware, national and state preparation involving COVID-19 (specifically the new variant) continues to be at the forefront of public health conversations. The health and safety of our students and staff is the number one priority at Washington-Nile Local School District. Based on strong recommendations from the Governor’s office, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), the National Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Scioto County Health Department, we will continue to observe many of the COVID Protocols that we implemented last school year. Students will report to school beginning August 18, 2021 in-person five days per week. The benefits of in-person learning are well documented and our goal is to keep students back in school. Our return plan will be posted on our website later this week. The following are core prevention measures for our district: • The Ohio Department of Health strongly recommends vaccinations for staff and eligible students. Vaccines are our best tool to protect students and prevent the spread of the virus. • It is strongly recommended that all staff and students wear masks when indoors. Masks are required on all public transportation including school transportation. ODH and the CDC assert that masks have been proven to be extremely effective in slowing the spread of the virus. Ohio researchers conducted an evaluation last year that showed that masking helped control the spread of the virus in Ohio schools. • Additional measures which includes improving ventilation, maximizing distance between people and practicing good hygiene will be followed. Additionally, our custodial staff is continuing to clean and disinfect our facilities daily. Be assured that we are working with health and government officials and continuously monitoring guidance from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) in order to act in the best interests of our students and staff. We will continue to share information with our community as the situation develops through email, social media, and our website. Thank you for partnering with us to mitigate risk to our students, staff and community.
