2020-2021 Reopening Guide with FAQs *Updated Aug. 5

Once again, we would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this challenging time. As communicated last week, we have decided to offer two learning options for students this year.

Option 1 is a traditional return to school while following health and safety protocols set forth by the Lake County General Health District and the State of Ohio.

Option 2 is a full-time remote learning program for families who are not comfortable sending their child(ren) back to school. The remote learning program will be different than what we offered in the spring, as expectations will be aligned to what is happening in the classroom for students attending school in the buildings.

THIS UPDATED REOPENING GUIDE WITH FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS will guide families through both options. Parents must choose which option they are most comfortable with for their child(ren). Families interested in Option 2 must OPT-IN to the remote learning program HERE by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, August 7 so we can finalize planning. A commitment to either option will need to be made for the entire first semester, after which the District will re-evaluate conditions heading into the second semester.

***It is extremely important to note that this document is fluid and may need to be adjusted and/or changed completely based on new information or requirements set by state or local officials. Please understand that depending upon the level of increased severity of COVID-19, we may be required to transition from our traditional setting to a remote learning program as directed by the State of Ohio or deemed necessary by the District. Based on guidance from the Lake County General Health District and the Ohio Department of Health, Riverside will follow the Ohio Public Health Color-Coded Advisory System. If Lake County should reach a RED or PURPLE level, Riverside may move to a remote learning model for all students.***
