District Health and Clinic Guidelines for the 2020-2021 School Year Health and Clinic Guidelines

The following is the district’s clinical guidelines and expectations for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.  In order to keep our schools safe, it will be important for everyone - staff, students and parents to follow the new guidelines, including a daily COVID-19 health assessment.  This should be done at home prior to arriving at school.  Each morning before students and staff enter a Ross building, everyone is asked to complete the Daily Health Assessment Checklist.  Many symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other common illnesses as well as seasonal allergies.  It is possible to have the coronavirus without having a fever.  If any of the listed symptoms are new or have started recently or suddenly, please stay at home.  This year, it will be very important for parents to keep students home if they do not feel well.

Ross Releases The Responsible Restart Plan Responsible Restart Logo

In accordance with the guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the Ohio Department of Health, the Butler County Health Department and in consultation with school districts across Butler County and the Greater Cincinnati area, the following guidelines outline the Responsible Restart Plan of the Ross Local School District for the 2020-2021 school year.

2020-2021 School Re-opening Communication Update corona 19

On March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Ohio schools closed for the remainder of the school calendar year by order of Governor DeWine and the State Health Commissioner. As of late June, little guidance is available from the Ohio Department of Education for school re-opening for the 2020-2021 school year.

The Ross Local School District intends to begin the 2020-2021 school year with all students attending a full day of school on a daily basis (5 days/week). In cooperation with other Butler County school districts as well as the Butler County Health Department, we are in the process of developing guidelines for the upcoming school year that must be followed as we move forward with our schools’ re-opening.

It is important for students, parents, and the community to understand that the school experience will not be conducted as it was prior to COVID-19. Safety precautions for all aspects of our schools will be in place which will alter previous procedures and protocols. 

On July 24th, we’ll release our full plan which will outline changes and/or modifications to transportation, food service, required handwashing, sanitizing protocols, social distancing, classroom instruction, visitor access, recess, field trips, and other daily practices.

As our District Leadership Team works through the process of developing this plan, we ask for your patience and understanding.  We recognize that our Ross students learn, grow, and achieve best through attending school on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure that they are able to do so in the safest environment possible.
