Springboro Schools will be reopening for the start of school on Tuesday, September 8. The district will be offering five (5) day a week instruction (M-F) with both an in-person/in-building learning model (Model A), as well as an at-home/virtual learning model (Model B) for those who do not desire the in-person/in-building learning model (Model A). Both learning models will take place (M-F) with a Springboro teacher instructing the lesson, and both will start on Tuesday, September 8. Both learning models will have the regulary scheduled start/dismissal times, as established by each school building.
 
New details regarding Model B (Grades 6-12), not listed in the current framework linked below, will be shared with the community once finalized. When complete, a revised Reopening Framework: Parent Guide will be linked here. PLEASE NOTE: Model A and Model B (Grades K-5) remains the same/unchanged.
 
 
Within the framework, families will choose one of the following two instructional models:
 
Model A (In-Person/In-Building Learning Model)

Building Reopening Meetings (Virtual) - Aug. 10 & 11

Each school building will conduct a virtual “Building Reopening Meeting,” in order to discuss current plans for the In-Person (Model A) reopening of school. These meetings will take place through a Facebook Live Event, and the community is invited to watch and comment with questions. Each meeting will be moderated by a Springboro Schools administrator, who will monitor the Facebook Live comments/questions and relay them to the building Principal, where questions will be answered live during the meeting. Each meeting will be recorded and posted to our website.

The schedule for the “Building Reopening Meeting” is listed below.

Schedule:

Monday, August 10 (6:00pm - 6:45pm), Springboro Intermediate

Monday, August 10 (7:00pm - 7:45pm), Springboro Junior High School

Monday, August 10 (8:00pm - 8:45pm), Springboro High School

Tuesday, August 11 (6:00pm - 6:45pm), Clearcreek Elementary

Tuesday, August 11 (7:00pm - 8:30pm), Dennis & Five Points Elementary

These meetings will last approximately 45 minutes, and will begin with a brief presentation by the building Principal. Following the presentation, the moderator will read community questions (posted in the comments section on the Facebook Live post) to the Principal. A panel will be present at each “Building Reopening Meeting” to answer your questions. This panel will include the Superintendent, the Assistant Superintendent of Instruction, the Executive Director of Business Facilities and Operations, the building Principal, the District Nurse, as well as a representative from our Special Education Department.

These “Building Reopening Meetings” are meant to relay each building’s reopening plan for our In-Person (Model A) option. Any questions you post should pertain to that particular building-level. Questions regarding the overall district or our Model B option, should not be posted to this meeting, as we want to allow ample time for parents who have building-specific questions.

Not all comments/questions may be able to be read during the meeting, however we invite you to visit the district’s COVID-19 webpage for a list of FAQs, regarding our district’s reopening. If you have a building-level specific question that was not able to be answered at the “Building Reopening Meeting,” due to time, please email your building Principal.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Does Springboro Schools plan to open on September 8 with all students attending school five days per week?

A: Yes, the first day of school for all grade levels (PreK - 12) for the 2020-2021 school year will now be Tuesday, September 8. There will be no Pre-School or Kindergarten Phase-In Days. The first day of school for Pre-School and Kindergarten students will be Tuesday, Sept. 8. This change is pending Board of Education Approval (August 5 meeting). Once approved, a revised Academic Calendar will be linked here.

Springboro Schools has a Reopening Framework: Parent Guide, which details the district's current reopening plan options. Model A will be in-person, while Model B will be at-home/remote learning (Model B will be an “Opt-In” Option).


Q: When will the district notify parents and the community about a finalized plan for opening school?

A: We understand parents will need time to plan for the opening of school.  We may not have a final decision on how we will officially operate until early September.

We will be working with the Ohio Department of Health and Warren County Health District routinely. Our plan is for all students to return on September 8. This could change if there is a spike or resurgence of the virus before the start of the school year.


Q: Will start/dismissal times (school hours) be different this school year?

A: School hours will remain the same as they would in any given school year. Check your school building’s website at www.springboro.org for specific start/dismissal times at each building.


Q: Since the start of school date was moved to September 8, does this affect the end of school date?

A: Yes, the end of school date for students will now be Thursday, June 3.


Q: Where does Preschool factor into planning for the reopening of school?

A: Our team is working through specific plans for preschool, along with K-12. We are still waiting on updated guidelines from the State. Currently, Preschool has a different set of considerations in the State of Ohio’s responsible plan, as preschool guidelines are established by the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services (See Pre-School Update). Pre-School students will begin on Tuesday, September 8. 


Q: What can parents expect if there is an identified case of COVID-19 in a school building?

A: A positive case must be reported to the Warren County Health Dept., who will assess the situation and advise on the best course of action on a case-by-case basis. This information will be shared with the affected families by Springboro Schools and/or the Warren County Health Dept.

If a positive case of COVID-19 is identified in the school, the district will notify you while also protecting the student’s identity and following the district’s Board policy.

If there is a positive case, the entire school building (and bus, if the student was riding a bus) will be cleaned using our electrostatic machine. Each school building will be cleaned on a regular basis, daily, regardless of a positive case or not.


Q: Are there any changes in process for alerting the school if my child is sick or has been exposed to COVID-19?

A: If a child is positive or has been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that school families alert their school building’s nurse.

All other absences should be reported to the school office, per normal procedure. 


Q: My child is not feeling well; should I send him/her to school?

A: Please familiarize yourself with COVID symptoms and if you are concerned, please keep your child home for the day to better assess his/her health. 

We are requiring that parents monitor student temperatures at home prior to sending them to school. If your child is running a temperature of 100.0 or higher, please keep him/her home to protect his/her classmates and teachers.   

Remember that as we move into the fall season, allergies may arise causing children to sneeze and cough. It is also typical for the common cold, stomach bugs, and even Strep throat to circulate in a school setting. Please remember to contact the office to report absences.


Q: If a child is self-quarantined because of COVID-19 exposure, what will learning look like and will this be treated as an absence? 

A: If a child is not at school or participating in at-home/virtual learning for any reason, it is considered an absence for school record purposes. Consideration is always given for students who are ill and are absent for any length of time.


Q: Will the school close again this year? 

A: While the goal for the school year is to remain open, we saw in March that sometimes we do not have ultimate control as the state mandate forced the move to at-home learning. If the state or county mandates another school closure, we will be well prepared for this possibility with our current at-home/virtual learning, Mobel B option for all students.

The teachers will set class times and create a more stable and structured learning environment for all of the students. 

At this time, the school calendar will begin and end per the published 2020-2021 academic calendar. PLEASE NOTE - An updated 2020-2021 Academic Calendar will be linked here after the August 5 Board of Education meeting to reflect the new Tuesday, September 8 start date for students.


Q: For the at-home learning/virtual model (Model B), is my child expected to be in front of his/her screen all day watching a virtual lesson?

A: No. The at-home learning/virtual model, which will utilize a live, virtual meet, will do so through Google Meet/Classroom. At-home/virtual learning students in grades K-5 will be able to watch their Springboro teacher's virtual lesson, interact with their Springboro teacher and online classmates, as well as have time away from their device for work/assignments. At-home/virtual learning students in grades 6-12 will be able to break out into groups online (through Google Meet/Classroom) with their online classmates, as well as hear instruction from their Springboro teacher. 


Q: For the at-home learning/virtual model (Model B), will my child be able to speak with his/her teacher and classmates?

A: Students may be able to interact online with their teacher and classmates, during the day, through Google Meet/Classroom. Students will be able to ask questions of their teacher.


Q: I want to do at-home/virtual learning for my child(ren), but don’t have access to a laptop or internet. What do I do? Do I have to choose the in-person model?

A: No, you do not have to attend in-person if you do not have access to a laptop/internet. Springboro Schools is happy to provide you with a Chromebook/internet access (WiFi hotspot) for your student(s). Simply call our Main Office at 937-748-3960 and let us know what you need.


Q: Will professional development (PD) be offered to Springboro teachers for the at-home learning/remote (Model B) option?

A: Yes, training will be offered to all teachers across several days prior to the start of school. This was one of the reasons the school start was pushed back one (1) week, in order to give our teachers time to train on our at-home/virtual learning model (Model B), which utilizes Google Meet/Classroom.


Q: If my student is enrolled in the at-home/virtual learning model (Model B), will he/she still be able to participate in athletics, band, or extracurriculars (provided these activities can still occur)?

A: Yes.

 

Q: Can I select the at-home/virtual learning model (Model B), but then switch to the in-person model (Model A) at a later date?

A: The commitment to the at-home/virtual learning model (Model B) is for one semester (18 weeks). You will have the opportunity to change models between semesters. A commitment form will be sent to parents before the 2nd semester.

 

Q: If I selected Model B, but now want to switch to Model A can I do that?

A: Yes, as long as you do so by Friday, August 14 (at noon). Click here to switch from Model B to Model A


Q: Is there any chance the deadline of August 14 for the at-home/virtual learning model (Model B) is pushed back? I would like more time to make this decision?

A: We would love to give you more time, but to be honest we are going to have to do a lot of re-adjusting and planning. We are going to need to hold to the August 14 deadline.


Q: I’m considering homeschooling my child or moving to another school which offers an outside virtual learning option to begin the school year. What if I withdraw and wish to return later?

Students withdrawn for any reason will have records transferred appropriately and will give up their space in class. Students interested in returning to Springboro Schools, must re-register as a new student, per our district’s registration policy. All documents and records will be required, as for any new student.

 

Q: What is the district’s policy on face coverings?

A: The district has a Face Coverings Policy, which can be read on our COVID-19 webpage.


Q: Based on the district’s Face Coverings Policy, if my child has high anxiety or another medical/social/emotional concern, will you accept a doctor’s note saying he/she does not have to wear a face covering?

A: We understand there will be several students with different needs. Face coverings does include masks, face shields, or gaiters (parent/student discretion). We are creating an appeals process that will go through our school nursing staff, and communicated to parents from each school building. Also, please click here to view the district’s policy on face coverings.


Q: What will the classrooms look like?

A: The classrooms will be thoroughly cleaned before the start of school (as well as cleaned daily throughout the school year) with only essential furniture inside the classroom. By removing the excess furniture, we are able to stage the student desks and maintain distancing (as best as possible, but not always 6 feet apart), while allowing all students to attend school in-person for full-day instruction.


Q: Are there going to be changes to the cleaning and sanitization of the school?

A: The school buildings are currently cleaned each evening. Deep cleaning and sanitizing will occur each evening during the school year, with specialized antimicrobial cleaning occurring routinely, unless a positive case arises, and then the school will be treated overnight.

Bathrooms will be cleaned periodically throughout the school day, and common surfaces like: handles, rails, desks, hard surfaces will be sanitized multiple times each day.

Hand-washing and sanitizing will be reinforced and encouraged, and additional hand sanitizing units will be placed strategically around each school.


Q: Will the district provide mental health support for students, teachers, and staff?

A: Yes, our Director of Mental Health and District Nurse are working with their teams, including school counselors, to continue to focus on student mental health and social/emotional concerns. Teachers and staff for Springboro Schools can visit the district’s COVID-19 Support webpage for further details.


Q: If any individual (teacher, staff, or student) has already had COVID-19, do they still need to wear a mask?

A: Yes, until we are told by the health experts that it is not necessary, all teachers and staff will be required to wear face coverings. Students will be required to wear face coverings on buses, when entering/exiting a building, in hallways, in lunch lines, and in classrooms with masks breaks scheduled during the school day.


Q: What will we do with school supplies and will students share them?

A: No, there will be no sharing of school supplies. Each student will need his/her own school supplies.


Q: Will you do away with the Springboro High School (SHS) attendance/exam policy this school year?

A: There will be no perfect attendance/exam policy this school year (2020-2021).


Q:  I am concerned about the shared drinking fountains; can I send a water bottle for my child?

A: The drinking fountains will not be usable, but there are water bottle filling stations throughout the school. Students are encouraged to bring water bottles to school in all grade levels and will be able to keep them at their desks. 

Students are only permitted to have water in their water bottles, rather than juice, coffee, tea, soda, etc.

We ask that spill-proof, reusable water bottles be sent with children. We do understand that in a morning rush, a disposable water bottle may be necessary, but appreciate the effort to send the other types most often. 


Q: Will SHS or SJHS be switching classrooms this school year?

A: Yes.


Q: Will lunch take place in the cafeteria this year, or elsewhere (classroom, etc.)?

A: Lunch will take place in the cafeteria with a limited number of students to accommodate social distancing guidelines. Students in the same lunch period could also have their lunch take place in the gymnasium or a designated classroom. This will depend on the school building, and be communicated directly to parents from each school building.

 

Q: With the quarantine of a covid positive patient, will siblings in other classrooms also have contact tracing/quarantine?

A: Springboro Schools will work in conjunction with the Warren county health department to determine who will have to quarantine in the event that a person has been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.  Students and staff that have been exposed within a 6 feet circumference for more than 15 mins will need to quarantine.  This will be determined by the Warren County Health Department.  Those who have been in the same classroom as someone who tested positive for COVID-19, will be notified but may not be required to quarantine.  Per the CDC guidelines, any immediate family member in the same household as a person who tests positive for COVID-19 should quarantine for 14 days.

 

Q: If a teacher gets COVID-19, does their time off come from their own sick bank or is it covered?A: The United States Department of Labor has passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) which applies to our workforce from April 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020.  This Act requires employers to provide their  employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.

Parent Survey Results

Over the summer, Springboro Schools issued two (2) parent surveys to our community, looking to gauge feedback and develop options for a reopening framework to the start of the upcoming school year. Below are the results of those two (2) parent surveys.
 
 

Grading

Grading for the 2020-2021 school year will follow the same grading standards for both in-person (Model A) and at-home learning (Model B) as in any given school year, where students are all in the classroom. There will NOT be the Pass/Fail option, as previously used during the 4th quarter of last school year (March 2020 - May 2020).

Transportation

Due to both State of Ohio and Warren County Health District guidelines regarding COVID-19, school bus transportation could require a limited number of students allowed on each bus at one time. Students will be required to wear a face covering (mask, shield, or gaiter) when using school transportation.

 

Given this situation, each student will be allowed to have one (1) address for the bus. If a parent has a babysitter or shared parenting that will be getting a student on/off the bus, the babysitter’s or shared parent's address would be the one (1) address, provided the student(s) are going to a babysitter’s or shared parent's house and not the student(s) own home.

Face Coverings Policy

Springboro Schools has developed a district policy for face coverings, which can be viewed here - District Face Coverings Policy. Face coverings include: Face Mask, Face Shield, and/or a Gaiter. Currently, the State of Ohio requires all teachers/staff and students (K-12) to wear a face covering in school.
 

The district's Face Coverings Policy is intended to further guide the district’s In-Person/In-Building Option (referenced as “Model A” in the draft Reopening Framework Parent Guide). When the district states “Face Coverings,” this includes the option of a mask, face shield, or gaiter.

The district policy will also follow in accordance with the Ohio Public Health Advisory Alert System. The Public Health Advisory Alert System is a color-coded system designed to supplement existing statewide orders through a data-driven framework to assess the degree of the virus’ spread and to engage and empower individuals, businesses, communities, local governments, and others in their response and actions.
 
The system consists of four levels that provide Ohioans with guidance as to the severity of the problem in the counties in which they live. The levels are determined by seven data indicators that identify the risk level for each county and a corresponding color code to represent that risk level.

Families In Need (Free/Reduced Lunch Program)

Students who are on Free/Reduced Lunch or apart of the “Boro Backpack Program” will still be able to receive food during the COVID-19 pandemic. Springboro Schools will be in contact with these families, regarding details on food pickup and/or distribution.

Springboro Schools is providing meals to families in need. The Springboro Community Assistance Center (SCAC) will continue its food pick up services to families throughout the community. Food pick up dates will occur on Mondays each week, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Read below to learn more about future dates, times, and how you can help! 

The schedule listed below will be in place, as supplies are available for students and their families on Free/Reduced Lunch with Springboro Schools.  

**DUE TO SUPPLY, FAMILIES ARE ONLY PERMITTED TO PICKUP FOOD ONE DAY PER WEEK**

Important Information About Your Child’s School Meals
If you have a child in kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) in your household who was receiving free or reduced-price meals while in school, your child is eligible for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits as a result of the school closure.
 

 

We understand with Springboro Schools remaining closed throghout the month of April this is going to put an extra burden on some families for food. Please know that the SCAC is here to help all families that are in need during this time. We understand there are a lot of families that have not used a food pantry before, and this can be uncomfortable at first. It’s safe to say that this is a first for almost all of us. 

Also, the Springboro Community Assistance Center (SCAC) will provide further details on their Facebook page. Click here to view the SCAC Facebook Page.

Thank you to the City of Springboro, Springboro First United Methodist Church, Springboro Eagles, the district's Food Services Dept., as well as the Springboro Community Assistance Center (SCAC) for making this possible.

Governor DeWine announced that the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (OJFS) has received approval from the United States Department of Agriculture for its Pandemic EBT plan. The Pandemic EBT program was included in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020.

The approval will allow OJFS to distribute SNAP benefits to 850,000 students across Ohio who relied on free or reduced-price meal programs when school was in session to have access to a hot, nutritious meal.  The benefits will be mailed directly to students, and families do not need to apply to be eligible.

Families will receive approximately $300 to purchase healthy and nutritious foods to feed their children. These benefits amount to more than $250 million that will go to our grocery stores and other eligible retailers.

How Can I Help?

It is important to remember that the best way to prevent the spread of any respiratory illness is to follow routine hygiene etiquette:

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least twenty (20) seconds. If not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with your arm or a tissue.
• Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
 
 
Due to the occurrences of COVID-19's global transmission, the Ohio Department of Health, in coordination with the CDC, recommends the following:
 
• If you have recently traveled from a country or state with a high incidence of COVID-19 watch for any changes in your health for fourteen (14) days after leaving the country or state.
• If you develop a fever or symptoms of illness during this time, avoid contact with others and seek medical care right away (Before you go, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms).
 
 
 
 

We will continue to be in contact with the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio Department of Health, as well as the Warren County Health District, and we will continue to be alert for information from the CDC for the most current updates and guidance. 

The district is remaining vigilant. Our responsibility to the larger issue of public health require us to be proactive, rather than reactive, in making decisions that affect the well-being of our students, parents, staff, and surrounding community.
