 Parents,

As the COVID-19 virus has now arrived in Ohio, I want to take a moment to remind everyone to take care at this time just has you have been doing throughout the cold and flu season. We will continue to monitor virus information as it becomes available and encourage healthy habits and a positive mindset at school.

Following are important reminders in an effort to keep our community healthy:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Students should stay home from school when sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Students should be drinking lots of water. They are permitted to carry water bottles that are CLEAR during the school day.

We have posted information from Columbus City Schools, Bishop Brennan and the Ohio Department of Health on our website.
