March 13, 2020 (Updated March 15, 2020)

Dear Princeton Families,

 

On Thursday, March 12, Governor Mike DeWine announced that all Ohio school districts will be on an “extended three-week spring break.” As a result, Princeton City School District students will not report to school on Monday, March 16 and will remain out of school through Friday, April 3, 2020. 

 

This letter is intended to provide you with information that outlines our school district’s plan for meeting your child’s academic and nutritional needs over the next three weeks. We have also posted this information on our website at www.princetonschools.net.  This is also where we will continue to provide updates. Please call 513-864-1162 if you have any questions.

 

Schedule for the Next Three Weeks

Even though the governor stated the extended break would begin at the end of the day, on Monday, Princeton students will not report to school on Monday, March 16, and will be out of school through Friday, April 3, 2020. Our staff will still be available via email to answer questions during the regular school day the first and third weeks of this mandatory break.

From Monday, March 16 - Friday, March 20th and March 30 - April 3, staff will still be working from home and will be available to answer questions during the regular school day via email.  Staff will be on spring break as scheduled from March 23 - March 27, and will not be available to answer questions.

 

Our Scheduled Spring Break

Regardless of the extended spring break schedule announced by the governor on March 12, Princeton City Schools will continue with our scheduled spring break, which runs from Monday, March 23 through Friday, March 27.

 

Athletics, School, and Community Events

Academic Expectations
Our teaching staff is working to finalize assignments, lessons, and learning opportunities for students, using both electronic and print resources. We appreciate your patience as we work to prepare lessons that help students review what they have learned, extend their knowledge, or reinforce individual student learning goals. While students will not physically attend school, they are expected to complete daily assignments. 

 

On Thursday, March 12, all elementary students in grades K-5 were given instructional resources to work on over the next three weeks.  Students were also provided with a list of distance and virtual learning options to continue their learning if internet access is available. Below and on each school's website homepage, we have outlined a plan for how instruction and learning will occur during this long-term closure. 

 

We are shifting our education from the classroom with four walls to online learning for students in grades 6-12. We understand that transitioning from the classroom to online learning will require computing devices for students in grades 6-12.  For more information, please read the Student Technology section of this letter. The instructional activities will be listed on the website under Student Assignments & Learning Opportunities.

Students will keep their completed packets and hand them into their teacher upon returning to school. The instructional activities will be listed on the website under Student Assignments & Learning Opportunities.

Students will be required to complete academic work for a minimum of 120 minutes each day and turn the work into their teacher upon returning to school.  The instructional activities will be listed on the website under Student Assignments & Learning Opportunities

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities will use online learning modules or individualized learning packets assigned by the classroom teacher and/or their intervention specialist. If you had an evaluation or IEP meeting scheduled in the next three weeks, meetings are canceled, and your special education team will contact you to reschedule.

 

Student Technology

If students in grades 6-12 do not have access to a computing device at home, the district will arrange to loan the student a device. All devices must be checked out to the student by completing a registration form.  Please call the technology department at 513-864-1162 to make arrangements or if you have tech concerns. Please leave a message and someone will contact you.  

 

Students can use Google Suites to complete work even if you are not connected to the internet. While offline, you can still create, view, and edit files on Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Click here for more information on how to use these tools offline. 

 

Internet options for the community
