Coronavirus - School Closure Information

  • March 16, 2020

    Dear New Albany-Plain Local Schools Students, Families, and Staff, 

    On Thursday, March 12, Governor Mike DeWine announced that all Ohio school districts are required to close through April 3, 2020 and further clarified that each local school district would determine how to create remote learning opportunities for students.  Additionally, all student related activities, sports, practices, clubs, and events are canceled through Sunday, April 5, 2020.  

    We are providing information here which outlines our school district’s plan for meeting student academic and non-academic needs. Email and text messages or phone calls to registered PowerSchool users will be our primary methods of communication for families.  We will also continue to post updates here at our website.

    School District and Employee Hours
    During our school closure period, our remote school district business hours are 7:30 am-4:00 pm.  Our teachers will be accessible from 8:00 am - 3:30 pm. With exception to a small number of essential school employees to conduct maintenance, operations, and safety checks daily, all school district staff are presently working remotely from home until otherwise determined by our health officials.  

    Our school buildings, offices, and related facilities are CLOSED.  Please use email as your first method of communication to all staff members.  Voice mail messages are being routed to all staff electronically through email.  We are working diligently to respond to all communications received within 24 hours if possible.  

    School Closure Preparedness
    The Executive Order by Governor DeWine extends through Friday, April 3, 2020 for school closures.  We strongly believe that our school district will not reopen on Monday, April 6, 2020.  In fact, daily student attendance in our classrooms and school buildings may not reconvene for the remainder of our current school year.  Families need to begin to prepare for the reality that students may be required to complete remote learning assignments and opportunities through the end of our school year on May 28, 2020. 

    Schedule for the Next Three Weeks
    Based upon recommendations by local health officials advising the school district, we have closed our school campus, including all schools and outdoor facilities for everyone.  Faculty and staff continue to work diligently to prepare to provide our families with information regarding student assignments and learning opportunities that will begin remotely on Thursday, March 19, 2020. 

    Should schools not reopen on Monday, April 6, which is VERY LIKELY, additional information will continue to be outlined and provided.

    Our Scheduled Spring Recess
    The New Albany-Plain Local Schools will continue with our scheduled spring recess from Monday, March 30, 2020 through Friday, April 3, 2020.  Remote learning opportunities for students are suspended during spring recess.

    Sincerely,


    Michael Sawyers
    Superintendent
