    In-Person Students Remote Week Assignments

    Please use this link to find assignments for In-Person Students during the remote weeks:


    Second Quarter Attendance

    Dear Princeton Families,


    Welcome to the Second Quarter! The first quarter of this school year was quite unique and we thank our students, staff, and parents/guardians for your flexibility.  The second quarter may bring new challenges, but working together we can continue to live our mission of empowering each student for college, career, and life success.  


    We will be implementing the following attendance updates in an effort to increase student academic achievement and participation.


    Attendance for FULL REMOTE Students:

    • Students must participate in live sessions (synchronous learning) for English (Reading), Math, Science, Social Studies and elective classes
    • Teachers will take attendance during live sessions
    • Parents and/or students must contact teachers with a reason if they cannot attend live sessions
    • If the recording is viewed in lieu of the live session, a teacher assignment must be completed 
    • Failure to participate in live sessions will result in up to two absences for the week if the teacher receives no communication from the parent or student
    • Independent work (asynchronous learning) must also be submitted to reach full attendance for the week


    Attendance for Scarlet/Gray AT HOME Learning weeks:

    • Student must complete work daily as assigned by teacher
    • Teacher will grade work and provide feedback to students’ weekly
    • Secondary teachers will submit at least two assignments in the grade book weekly
    • Live learning sessions will be offered at all levels during the afternoon and students with technology are required to attend.


    Students who fail to meet academic expectations will be required to attend our summer school program.  Students who fail to meet attendance requirements may have truancy charges filed.  It is critical that parents communicate with their child’s teacher(s) and the school so that we can provide interventions to help with remote and at-home learning.


    Please contact your child’s building principal, counselor, or teacher with questions regarding student performance during the first quarter and the support that is available.

    It is with great sadness that the family of GL is saying farewell to Ms. Martinez. She has been part of Princeton's academic team for eight years. Ms. Martinez is very professional in her work. She is the glue that sticks us together with our Hispanic and Latino families. 

    Did Someone Say Library

    Google Library is now available at GL. All thanks and honor goes to our new Librarian Mrs. Kempthorne. Mrs. Kempthorne comes with years of experience and a love for reading. 

    Congratulations to our Scarlet (Hybrid) 1st Quater award winners.

    All of you have worked so hard to stay focused and on track with this new normal.

    Turkey Turkey Time 

    Parent-Family Involvement has decided to do a turkey decorating contest over the next month. Students will receive a turkey with directions this Friday (Scarlet), Monday (Gray), Wednesday, and Friday (remote-it will be in their bag for pick-up). They can decorate it however they want to use any supplies. They have until Wednesday, November 18th to complete the turkey. Students will take a picture of their turkey and put it on your Google Classroom. Teachers, you just need to have a spot somewhere in your Google Classroom for students to upload their pictures. Each classroom teacher will choose a winner and they will receive a small prize.

    Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Logo

    The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day.  It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options.

    Congratulations to: 

    Glendale, Heritage Hill, Lincoln Heights, Sharonville, Stewart, and Woodlawn for being selected for this amazing program.

    Zooms/Google Meets in Google Classroom, parents and their participation

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Each year pictures and videos of students are often taken for use in district publications, press releases, school/district websites and/or as an instructional resource during remote learning activities (i.e. zoom or google meets live sessions).  If a parent, guardian, or student does not want to be photographed or videotaped for these purposes, please contact the building or grade level principals.  We will be happy to clarify any questions you may have and/or accommodate your request to not have your child photographed or videotaped.

    Also, we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s remote learning experience and hope that you regularly connect with teachers so that your child has a well-rounded education.  We do ask that parents refrain from participating in live sessions.  The sessions are meant for the students and parent/teacher contact should occur outside of live instructional time.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this request.

    Lastly, taking attendance for remote learning is new for us this year.  There are expectations set by the state that require schools to take attendance even for those students learning at home.  Students who fail to engage in learning at home will be referred to administration for chronic absenteeism which we would like to prevent if at all possible.  We ask that if your child is not able to participate in remote learning that you notify the school so that we can mark attendance accordingly.  We will be using the same procedure that is utilized in our traditional setting.  Please contact the school if you have questions regarding attendance.

    • Students are expected to log into lessons daily.
    • Per the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) attendance in a remote learning model will consist of:
      • Completion of assignments by due date
      • Daily logins/posts to Google Classroom
      • Communication with teacher(s) outside of the live learning sessions (synchronous) such as messages through Google Classroom, emails, telephone calls, video chats or other formats that enable teachers to engage with students outside of the live learning session.
      • Engagement time in digital learning resources (e.g. I-Ready, programs access through the Clever portal)
      • Teacher-led remote learning live learning sessions (synchronous) 
      • Self-directed remote learning activities (asynchronous) with evidence of participation through a combination of: 
    • Attendance will be taken by the teacher during the live lesson.  If your child cannot attend the live virtual lesson they must watch the recorded live session and provide evidence to the teacher that the video was reviewed.  The teacher will determine what that evidence looks like.
    • Parents must email the teacher if their student is unable to attend the live sessions.
    • Daily attendance is expected and will be reported by teachers weekly to allow for assignment completion and viewing of recorded sessions.
    • Excessive Absenteeism: according to district policy, a student who “is absent from school with combined nonmedical excused absences and unexcused absences in excess of thirty-eight (38) or more hours in one (1) school month, or sixty-five (65) or more hours in a school year, that student is considered ‘excessively absent’ from school.”  The district will notify the parent/guardian, in writing, when a student has reached the level of excessive absenteeism as defined above.
    • Habitually Truant: according to district policy, “ a student will be considered habitually truant if the student is of compulsory school age and absent without a legitimate excuse for thirty (30) or more consecutive hour, for forty-two (42) or more hours in one(1) school month, or for seventy-two (72) or more hours in one (1) school year.”  The principal shall assign the student to an absence intervention team within ten (10) days of a student becoming habitually truant.



    • Students are expected to attend and participate in live sessions by either asking or answering questions.
      • This can also be done using the chat feature if students are not comfortable speaking up during a live session.
      • Interactions between the student and teacher as well as between students should always remain positive as we are all navigating through remote learning together.
    • Students should notify their teacher when they cannot attend the live session and follow up with the teacher after they watch the recording to provide evidence that the recording was viewed and work was completed.
    • When viewing live sessions students should keep their audio on mute unless asking or answering a question.
    • Our preference is for students to keep their video on when possible so teachers can monitor engagement.  Students who have their video turned off should demonstrate participation by either using audio, the chat feature and/or completing the live session activity.  Students and parents with concerns about using video for the live lesson should contact the teacher.
    • Students should find a quiet place to view live sessions and complete independent work so they can focus on their education.
    • Students should refrain from moving around the room if possible when attending live sessions so that other students are not distracted.
    • We encourage students to reach out to their teachers via email to set up individual sessions if they need additional support.  Teachers/Counselors will also be working to set up small group and individual sessions when appropriate to make sure our student’s needs are being met both academically as well as socially and emotionally.

    Learning Management System

    • All teachers will use Google Classroom to:
      • Post weekly agenda that will include assignments, due dates and assessment dates.
      • Attach links to live zoom/google meets lessons
      • Attach recordings of live sessions or other instructional videos or resources.
    • Some teachers may also use Class Dojo as a communication tool that can be accessed from parent cell phones.  


    Parent Support

    • Weekly assignments will be provided at the start of each week and due dates will also be included
    • Teachers will provide virtual orientation opportunity for parents
    • Teachers will have daily office hours to respond to student and parent questions
    • Teachers will coordinate material pick-up at the start of September to provide learning materials to support learning at home
    • District will provide videos to help students learn to use Google Classroom.  Videos are available online and new videos will be released on Friday, August 21
    • Parent/Teacher conferences will be held September 24 and October 1


    Technology Support

    • If the assigned teacher is not able to answer your technology questions, please contact the district technology hotline at 864-1162.
    • Elementary remote students who need access to a Chromebook and or wifi, should also contact the district technology helpline at 864-1162.

    Supporting Young Minds of All Kinds.
    We all know that this upcoming school year is going to be different than any other, and that families have to adjust to big changes, such as how best to support learning from home. One of the Library’s areas of focus in our Strategic Plan is student success. We’re committed to helping young people have the resources and supports they need to succeed in school and prepare for post-secondary education, training, careers, and life. Besides library cards and access to our eResources 24/7, we can also support students with their remote learning by providing WiFi access, computers/laptops, and access to library staff to provide assistance. Here’s some important information:
    Kids learning remotely, and their families, are welcome to visit any of our 41 locations during all open hours, Mon. – Sat., 10am to 6pm. 
    • At the downtown Main Library we have designated a space on the second floor for homework help for middle and high schoolers, which will be available beginning Aug. 24. We can accommodate up to 24 students at a time. 
      • To reserve a space students should call 513.369.6900. 
      • Sessions are 2 hours in length and are limited to 1 session per student per day.
      • There will be 3 sessions each weekday: Monday – Friday
        • 10AM – 12PM
        • 1PM – 3PM
        • 4PM – 6PM.
    • We do still have safety protocols in place, including requiring face coverings, reduced occupancy levels, and limits on the length a customer can stay. 
    • Right now, we are working to improve our outdoor spaces and meeting rooms at many of our locations so we can support students who need homework help, access to WiFi or devices, or assistance with their own device. 
    • We intend to use the first few weeks of school to learn what the demand is for student use of our facilities and as capacity allows, and we may try additional strategies like adding student-only hours in the evenings, and adjusting occupancy levels, if the spread of COVID-19 continues to improve in our county. 
    Homework HelpNow
    • Anyone with a library card can use our Homework HelpNow resource, which provides a variety of supports to students, including live homework assistance, study tools, virtual study rooms and even free assistance with filling out the financial aid form for college (FAFSA). 
    • Check out this brief video to learn more about this great resource.
