ALL PK-12 Little Miami Students Remote 11/30-12/4

Posted on: November 24, 2020
remote instruction

The health and safety of our students, staff and the Little Miami community will always be our top priority. Please understand that we must make decisions on behalf of over 5,000 students and in an unprecedented environment, that may lead to change and unpopular conclusions. We ask for flexibility and patience as we navigate the impacts of this pandemic together.

Over the course of the school year, there have been 68 student and 20 staff confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 1,877 student quarantines and 151 staff quarantines.  In just the three weeks following Halloween, we recorded 63% of the student quarantines and 51% of the staff quarantines. We are anticipating similar, and even larger increases in confirmed COVID-19 cases after the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope to significantly limit the number of students that may have to quarantine because of those unknowingly infected people that would come back to school and prevent others that may have to quarantine after the break. 

Out of an abundance of caution, all PK-12 students at Little Miami Local Schools will be on remote instruction effective Monday, November 30 through December 4, 2020. VLA students will continue with remote instruction as normal. Students will return to the in-person classroom on Monday, December 7, 2020. 

By keeping students remote following Thanksgiving, our staff will have ample opportunity to complete proper contact tracing from any cases over the holiday break and allow time for our currently quarantined and positive staff and students to return to school. Please look for a remote schedule to be sent home from your student’s teacher or principal.

Little Miami remains firm in dedication to providing quality instruction whether in-person or remote. With your student’s health and safety in mind, Little Miami will persevere in education and keep the community informed as decisions are made. Stay healthy Panthers.
