    October 23, 2020: PCSD COVID 19 Community Update
    “I continue to be impressed with the hard work that all of our schools have done to maintain a safe environment,” writes Greg Kesterman, health commissioner at Hamilton County Public Health.  “School districts have worked with students, staff, and families to require masks, ensure proper distancing when possible, carefully assist HCPH with contact tracing, and enhanced cleaning protocols.  Since September 8, our schools have only reported 198 cases of COVID within their student population compared with 2,819 total cases in our jurisdiction. This low case count is testament to the adherence to carefully thought-out plans.  From what I have seen, our schools continue to be one of the safest, most well-controlled environments for our children.”

    When Princeton City School District (PCSD) Administrators receive notification of a positive case, they will notify students and staff that were in close contact of the person who received the positive case. Administrators will then notify the school family members and share the actions that have taken place and follow up procedures.
    PCSD will post an updated COVID-19 Dashboard, on the website on Thursdays, and in eNews on Fridays, to notify the community of COVID-19 spread in the school system. The information will also be published on www.coronavirus.ohio.gov.
    Thank you for contacting your school nurse to report a COVID-19 case, no later than 24 hours after receiving a confirmed diagnosis or have been asked to quarantine.
    Temperature Checks
    Daily temperature checks MUST OCCUR DAILY PRIOR to sending students to bus stop or to the school buildings.
    Stay Home If You Are Sick
    To stop the spread of infectious diseases, we all need to do our part. As cold, flu, and allergy season approaches, Princeton City School District is encouraging students and staff to stay home if you aren't feeling well or have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste). One infected person can spread germs - your friends, co-workers, and classmates are counting on you!
    Princeton Calendar
    Reminder: October 26- 30 is a Gray Week
    We are very excited to announce that the Princeton City School District has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service that will be replacing paper forms. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign back-to-school forms and athletic participation forms for your children. The best part is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information, wherever possible, for each of your family members, saving you time!
    You may review your data at any time to verify it is current for the 2020-2021 school year. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.
    A separate email with instructions was sent on October 1 from FinalForms to get started. For our athletic parents in grades 7-12, please utilize your existing FinalForms logins.
    If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Welcome Center at 513-864-1061.
    for Parents/Guardians of Remote Learners


    The purpose of the School-Parent Agreement is to help create a partnership to assist all children in reaching high academic standards. Parents, students, teachers and all staff members will share in this responsibility.
    for Parents/Guardian of First-Semester Remote Learners
    For parents and guardians of students who selected Remote Learning for the First Semester, please complete a Commitment Form for Second Semester.
    One form for each student who has been enrolled as full remote for the first semester must be completed in order for second-semester classes to be scheduled.
    Again, this form is for students who selected remote learning for the first semester.
    Parents who have children enrolled as in-person or year-long remote learning do not need to complete.
