Dear Parents and Students,

I am sure you are aware, the Coronavirus issues going on around the globe, including Ohio.  The Walnut Township Local School District is taking a pro-active approach to prepare for the possibility of schools being closed for an extended period by authority of the State of Ohio or federal entity.

To prepare for this possibility, Walnut Twp. Local Schools will be closed Thursday, March 12.  The purpose for this closure is to provide time for our faculty and staff to prepare to deliver academic content to students for 10 school days in the event of a long-term closure. The district is uniquely positioned to provide alternative ways for students to engage in technology-enhanced learning opportunities through the district’s one-to-one Chromebook program.

The health, safety and welfare of our students, staff and community is our most important priority and by taking these steps will ensure the academic needs of students will still be served in the event of a closure.

In order for the district to meet the needs of your student, please complete the attached information form so we can be prepared to meet your family’s needs in the event of closure. Students should return the attached form to their first teacher of the day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the district office at 740-467-2802. If a closure due to the coronavirus occurs, the district will post all information for parents and families on the district website, Laker Pride Facebook Page, One Call Notification System and through email.

In Service to Children,

 

Randall J. Cotner 
Superintendent
