Dear Lincolnview Parents, Students, & Community:
On Thursday, July 2, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine released the “Reset and Restart Education Planning Guide for Ohio Schools and Districts.” Since that day of the release, the Van Wert County Superintendents of Lincolnview, Crestview, Van Wert City, and Vantage Career Center have met numerous times to identify common practices for reopening the county’s public school districts. This “Reopening Plan Agreement of Van Wert County Schools” (see link below) is a result of this collaboration, as well as, guiding input provided by the Van Wert County Health Department.
As we move forward from now until the start of the school year, each Superintendent will be providing additional information to all employees, parents, and students within each school district. We are planning next week to present more district-specific guidelines, as well as, each districts’ remote learning plan. All districts will continue to post their information on district websites. The Superintendents will also continue collaborating as preparations continue to unfold within the next several weeks before the start of the approaching school year.
This upcoming school year certainly presents many new challenges and at times a number of changes within the school day. However, there are also new opportunities to embrace as we continue to provide rich educational experiences for the students within Van Wert County and Lincolnview Local Schools.
