In response to confirmed cases of coronavirus in our area, national, state and local health and government officials, including the Governor of Ohio, have recommended limiting meetings of large groups and increasing social distancing measures. 

Out of an abundance of caution and in keeping with this current guidance, beginning today, Thursday, March 12th we are postponing or canceling all school-sponsored, large-group events and daytime school assemblies through March 31, 2020.  We are also postponing all field trips.  

As of this time, outdoor athletic events and practices currently scheduled will proceed as scheduled.

District Event Cancellations:

  • Quiz Bowl Competition in Aurora scheduled for 3/14/20
  • NGCC Pancake Breakfast at Elementary School scheduled for 3/15/20
  • Title 1 Books for Breakfast scheduled for 3/17/20
  • Preschool Grandparents day scheduled for 3/19/20
  • High School Baseball Tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC

District events through 3/31/20 currently postponed:

  • Preschool Screening scheduled for 3/13/20
  • Winter Sports Dance scheduled for 3/14/20
  • Musical Sing-a-Long scheduled for 3/16/20
  • All school field trips
  • All athletic banquets
  • All off-campus training for staff

It is our hope that by March 31, 2020 we will have a clearer picture of the impact of coronavirus on our schools.  We will monitor on a daily basis and determine if further steps need to be taken.

We are currently working with staff members to plan what instruction may look like for students should our schools be required to close.

All of this information is actively evolving, and we will comply with any and all directives from the Portage County Health Department, Ohio Department of Health or the Governor’s Office.

The above information may change at any time, so we encourage everyone to seek out as much information about the current status from reputable sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (www.cdc.gov), or local, county, and state health authorities.
