Since the Governor announced the state of Ohio's guidelines for the reopening of schools the first week of July, the Putnam County Superintendents, the Putnam County Health Department, Ottawa-Glandorf Local Schools Administrative team, and a committee of school staff have been meeting to put together a comprehensive plan to bring students back to school in August. The guidelines the Governor released were also supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Dr. Chris Peltier who was a part of the press conference when the guidelines were released.
"The American Academy of Pediatrics said evidence shows the benefits outweigh the risks from the coronavirus. Children are less likely to become sick from the virus than adults, according to pediatricians. And they said the mental and physical benefits of in-person learning cannot be replaced."
The first day of school is August 25, and the current plan is to follow the Board approved district calendar.
Form updates for the 2020-21 school year are now open. Please make sure to complete all required forms prior to the first day of School. Fall sport athletes, all athletic forms need completed prior to the first day of practice.
