A Message from the Superintendent - April 28, 2020
I hope this message finds you healthy and safe. Thank you for your patience as we work to better understand how to best serve you and your children during this global emergency. As we close week seven of remote learning and have over 1 million confirmed COVID-19 cases within our nation’s borders, it has become clearer how we must operate over the next few months. With Ohio beginning to relax the stay-at-home order and people being called back to their workplaces, we are sensitive to the increased burden continuing remote learning may put on families. Keeping this in mind, the following end of year schedule has been developed:
May 8 - Last day for seniors
May 15 - Last day of 4th
May 18-22 –Individual student intervention/enrichment, make ups, and supplemental activities
May 22 - Last day of 2019-2020 school
year for all students
Your child’s teachers will provide details on how each course/class will close the school year. The week of May 18-22 will
also be used to coordinate any pick-up of personal items that students may have
left in classrooms or lockers and drop-off of school property. Please communicate with your teachers or
building administration any difficulties you may have adhering to the above
schedule. I assure you we will make
every effort to be flexible with the specific needs of your family. Look for information from building principals
on how we are handling many of the time-honored traditions we have grown to
love. (Class of 2020 Commencement has
been moved to July 12)
Thursday, May 7th, we will be hosting a live update on our Facebook pages from
6:30 to 7:00pm. Viewers may submit questions during this time via an email to
Allen Kellogg at [email protected]. We
will try to answer as many questions as we are able. You may also submit your questions in advance
to the same email address. Submitting in advance is preferred as it may allow
us to answer your question more thoroughly.
As we look to implement
summer programs and the start of the 2020-2021 school year, we will continue to
monitor the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare to provide the
best possible educational experiences allowed.
To accomplish this, we will be reaching out to each of our Perry
families to better understand your needs.
The planning has already begun so, no matter the situation, we will be
prepared to offer our students the most diverse educational options available.
Until you hear from
us again, I wish you the best in these extraordinarily challenging times.
