While the Perry Local School District has reopened its schools to students, the global COVID- 19 pandemic continues. Schools are places where diseases like COVID-19 can quickly spread given the number of students, teachers, and others who often come into close contact with one another. For the safety of our student body and community, all Perry Local School District staff and students in grades Pre-K-12 are required to wear multi-layered cloth face coverings at all times while at school or on school buses, subject to the exceptions at the end of this policy. Face coverings must comply with our Dress Code, and must not contain profanity or other prohibited images or material. Failure by students to comply with this policy may result in discipline under the Student Code of Conduct. Furthermore, outright refusal by
a student to wear a face covering will result in the student being enrolled in the Perry Virtual Learning Academy. COVID-19 is highly contagious, and not everyone infected with the disease shows symptoms. When a student wears a face covering, though, it is more difficult for the student to spread COVID-19 to friends and classmates. And because we don’t always know who has COVID- 19, it is safest for all of us if everyone wears a cloth face covering. We wear face coverings to help protect our friends and classmates in case we are infected but don’t know it. Face coverings are effective only if worn properly.
The Perry Local School will be delaying the start of school for students. Students grades 1-5 & 7-9 will start on Thursday, August 20th. All Grades 1-12 will be in session on Friday, August 21st. Your child’s buildings will be communicating out specifics as it relates to these opening dates. These additional days will allow the Perry staff to be trained on the health department guidance as it relates to district and building opening plans. This will allow for sufficient time to train on the various aspects of opening and operating a safer school. These additional days will also allow for added preparation in the event the District would be required to shift to all remote learning. Our desire was to start the school year as scheduled but it became clear that additional time was needed to best prepare our staff and address the many changes implemented. Kindergarten screening and start dates will not be affected by these date changes. The Perry Virtual Academy is still scheduled to begin on August 24th, 2020. Once all intent forms are returned, the District will be pushing out relevant dates to those families indicating when their child(ren) will begin the year in the Virtual Academy. As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we prepare for the 2020/2021 school year. Everyday we get closer to getting back to education and bringing some normalcy to our children’s lives.
