Previous Communications

Covid Update

As you are most likely aware central Ohio has been battling another surge of the coronavirus. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has recently updated their guidance for what to do if you have tested positive or been exposed. In Worthington we fall under the guidance of Columbus Public Health (CPH), and they have adopted these guidelines as well. You can find the new flowchart in the link below. These are the guidelines Worthington Schools are currently using. If there is any change in these guidelines we will be sure to communicate those changes.

ODH Covid Flowchart

If your child tests positive for Covid-19 or has a "close contact exposure" outside of school, please complete a report at this link or call the Covid hotline at 614-450-3900.

Remote Learning Days - Public health continue to recommend in-person learning with mitigation strategies in place such as universal masking. Based on that guidance we plan to remain in-person for schooling as long as we have the ability to provide staff to teach and supervise students. Our primary goal is to keep students in the classroom. Having said that, in the event of high absenteeism at Wilson Hill we would need to shift to a remote learning day. The central office has a team that is meeting daily to review staff absences in each of our schools. In the event we would not have enough staff at Wilson Hill due to absenteeism we would communicate a "remote day" as soon as possible, hopefully the day prior. Students would be asked to log in and complete some online assignments via one of our learning management systems (Google Classroom or SeeSaw). Families would have the ability to pick up a Chromebook from school if needed on these days. Again, it is our hope to not have to implement a remote day, but we want to clearly communicate so everyone can be as prepared as possible ahead of time.

Winter Weather Reminder

As the weather continues to fluctuate, we want to encourage all students to come to school daily with a winter coat, hat, and gloves. Per our Elementary Handbook:

Weather and health permitting, we expect all children to go outside for recess. In our schools, when the weather is dry/dry enough, and the temperature is 20 degrees or higher, real temperature, or wind-chill, we plan to take students outside for recess.

Thank you for helping keep our White Tigers warm on the playground!
