The information below contains the plans for returning students and staff to Little Miami school buildings for the 2020-2021 school year.

This plan was developed by working with the Warren County Health District and other school districts in Warren County, by following guidance from state agencies, and by gathering input from parent and staff surveys.

As with many things in these unprecedented times, this plan could change with new or additional information.

Student Learning 

For the 2020-2021 school year, Little Miami will offer two learning options.

  1. In-person instruction. Students will attend school five days per week. Families understand that some level of risk will always be present when children and school district employees occupy school district facilities. Face coverings are required for students and staff, with some exceptions. Read the Board policy on face coverings.
  2. Remote learning through Virtual Learning Academy, a third-party vendor. This option is for students whose families do not wish to send them to school. Students will agree to remote learning from home one semester at a time. Students will not be permitted to come in and out of remote learning. VLA classes will be supported by Little Miami teachers. See more information on VLA here.

In Case of Unexpected Closure/Remote Learning

Should local or regional conditions dictate, Little Miami will enact its Intermittent Remote Learning Plan, where all students will participate in virtual learning. Moving to remote instruction may be at the direction of the Warren County Health District, the Ohio Department of Health, or local or state government. Students who are currently enrolled in VLA will continue in VLA.

Read the Intermittent Remote Learning Plan.

Second Semester Platform Change

LM students have the option of changing learning platforms (VLA or in-person) at semester break. Students who are satisfied with their current learning platform do not need to do anything to remain in that platform. 

Students who wish to change platforms need to complete the Semester Learning Platform Change Form and submit it to Little Miami Central Office or [email protected] prior to October 23, 2020. Due to fees being specific to the platform, when changing platforms, the appropriate fee will be assessed. If changing to VLA, please pay the $50 enrollment fee when submitting the change request form.  Once your student begins VLA courses, this fee is non-refundable.  Timing is essential due to the JH/HS master schedules and K-6 classes that need to be created.

*Parents of students who move from in-person to the VLA learning platform will need to attend a 30-minute VLA Zoom orientation prior to October 23.  Zoom session info was sent out to all district families via email. If you did not receive the email or need assistance, please call 513-899-2264.
