update March 15, 2020 COVID-19/Coronavirus Update
Dear Quaker Nation

On March 12, Governor DeWine closed schools in Ohio to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. While unprecedented and challenging, we applaud the Governor’s swift actions. The safety and well-being of our students, staff, families, and our community are our first priority. The situation is evolving and new information comes out every day. We want to provide an update regarding what we are doing at this time.

We are closely following direction from the State of Ohio and healthcare experts to help minimize the spread of coronavirus. We also must continue educating our children and helping our families cope with the current realities. Governor DeWine’s directive stated in part that “During this extended period of closure, schools should work to provide education through alternative means” and to make a good faith effort within available capabilities to support continued learning outside of school. The directive recognizes that Ohio’s schools provide important whole child supports including behavioral and mental health services, healthcare services, supports for students with disabilities and meals to many students. The Governor urges local communities to continue these services as much as practicable and instructs local school districts to exercise creativity and flexibility to work together, engage community partners, and to make decisions that are best for their local community.

update COVID-19/Coronavirus Update
Dear Quaker Community

This is an unprecedented time and the situation is ever-changing. The last corresponddence was the plan created with much input and based on the requirements given to schools by the Ohio Department of Education and the Governor’s Office. The plan was designed to best serve our students. However, the latest interpretation of the Governor’s statements by the Ohio Department of Education has caused us the need to adjust our plans.  What we know for sure is that things will continue to change and bring challenges. However, we also know that Quaker Nation is strong and will come together to adapt and succeed!

The NPCSD will still suspend face to face instruction and adjust to alternative learning opportunities, beginning Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, April 3. Spring break, scheduled for April 6-13, will continue as planned. Therefore, it is anticipated that regular instruction will resume on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

Feeding children is also a priority to us at the New Philadelphia City Schools. This tentatively will begin Tuesday, March 17. There will be no charge to any student for lunch. Details on how, where, and when to pick up lunch will be announced Monday in a manner that ensures we comply with the requirement to not allow any student into the school building.

Our Mission
New Philadelphia City Schools will provide all students the opportunity to achieve their highest potential to become educated, self-sufficient, and responsible citizens. We are committed to providing every student a diverse, quality education within a safe and secure environment through a dedicated, innovative and highly qualified staff in partnership with parents and the community-at-large.
