Reopening Plan Information – July 6, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
As we navigate through a unique time, it is our goal to create a reopening plan that will ease as much uncertainty as possible for our parents, guardians and students while answering as many questions as possible. We ask for your patience as we work through this process.  As many of you are now aware, this past Thursday Governor DeWine reviewed specific details of the state’s plan to reopen school buildings. The plan provides guidance on best practices that all Ohio school districts are expected to follow as they consider educational and programming options for the fall. During his address, the Governor provided several key points that we must consider here locally as we make decisions that will impact our students, families and staff members. The Governor’s guiding points included:
 
1. Parents and guardians assessing their child(ren) for symptoms and conducting daily health checks prior to their child(ren) attending school. Schools will be required to provide opportunities for students to wash their hands throughout the day in addition to providing hand sanitizer at all entrances and exits.
2. Continuing to educate your child(ren) on the importance of washing hands, not touching
one’s face and other best practices when it comes to hygienic guidelines.
3. Enhancing the schools cleaning protocols to ensure the safest possible environment for students and staff in all locations and places students gather such as playgrounds, classrooms, school busses, etc.
4. Continuing to practice social distancing. Schools should strive to maintain 6ft of distancing as often as possible. We know this will look different in every building and will require a great deal of flexibility.
5. Creating a face covering policy. While school staff will be required to wear masks unless unsafe or it interferes with the learning process, the district is exploring policy for students grades 3-12.
 
We have been working diligently for weeks to formulate several draft plan options in anticipation of this guidance. Now that these parameters and guidelines have been provided to us, we will immediately begin the finalization of our plans. We certainly understand the difficulty that this delay has caused our families with respect to planning. Additionally, we recognize that many of our students and families still feel uneasy about returning in the fall. We will continue to update the community on our recovery plan in the coming days and weeks. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work through this process.
 
Sincerely,
Scott Beatty, Superintendent Perry Local Schools

    a. Log in to your Final Forms account at perrymassillon-oh.finalforms.com
    b. SELECT ALL SPORTS that the student may be interested in participating for the 2020-2021 school year so that the additional athletic forms will appear.

    d. Be sure to TYPE and SUBMIT your electronic signature where indicated on each form.
    e. Have your student log in to their Final Forms account, complete their portions, type and submit their electronic signature where indicated on each form.
2. PHYSICALS – Due to the CDC’s Covid-19 Limitations on Gatherings, Perry High School is unable to host its annual Physical Day.  If your student’s physical has expired, or is about to, we encourage you to make an appointment for your student to obtain a sports physical through their doctor’s office, Walk In Urgent Care, STATCARE, etc.  After completing Step 1, print out the very last form entitled OHSAA PreParticipationEvaluation Physical (for physicians). This step compiles all the answers you entered to the medical questions and prints the information onto a concise form that you will hand to the physician as well as a blank Physical Examination Form that the physician will complete, date, and sign.
