COVID-19 Information

July 22, 2020 

Vanlue Parents,

Please complete one (1) survey per child by August 7 to help us prepare for the start of the 2020-21 school year.  These responses will help us in completing our plan details.  

There will be two (2) options that you can choose from. Please review the options below and then let us know your decision by filling out the survey.

.                                                                                           Thanks,

                                                                                            Ms.Traci  Conley

Option1 -

Students will follow the Ohio Covid 19  Alert Level System for Hancock County.  This means we will follow the levels 

Level 1- Students in school 5 days with safety precautions

Level 2- Students would attend in person 2 days, remote 3 days from home

Level 3- Students would be in remote learning from home

Level 4 -Students would be in remote learning from home

We would not go back and forth when levels change. For example: If we are in level 3 at the start of the school year we will stay at level 3 for the first 9 weeks. Then we will evaluate the level near the end of a grading period to determine if we stay at that current level or if we can move down to another level.

Option 2 -

Students will work at home daily with an online curriculum using Vanlue Virtual Classroom (curriculum provided by an outside provider) but monitored and assisted by Vanlue Teachers. In this virtual learning setting the student will remain on Vanlue Virtual for a semester. Near the end of the semester if the student choses then they may switch to Option 1.

Dear Vanlue Community,


Thank you for your guidance and feedback as we prepare for the 2020-21 school year!  Responding to the COVID-19 situation has been a tremendous undertaking so as we plan for the Fall, the safety and health of our students, staff, and families remains the highest importance. While schools reopen, they will undoubtedly look different.  With input from public health experts, Hancock County Schools Administrators and other leaders across our state are developing a plan for reopening. Given the fluidity of this situation, changes of how we will educate the children could change quickly. We will continue to provide you with as much clear and timely guidance as possible. We must be flexible and patient, but together we will get through this and make sure our students have what they need to succeed!

While plans are still being developed, we do want to share important details:

  • We plan to start school as scheduled on Tuesday-September 8, 2020.
  • We plan for in-person learning 5 days a week, with social distancing between desks/tables.
  • We plan to use the cafeteria space at 50% capacity with social distancing.
  • A remote option will exist for medically fragile students or other circumstances.
  • Bus routes will remain traditional but a facemask/face shield on the bus will be required.
  • A mask/face shield during school for students is strongly recommended but is not required for students except when in close distance such as partner work, class meetings, transitions, etc. 
  • We will be vigilant with cleaning protocols in all school areas and on the bus.
  • We will not allow non-essential visitors in the building.  Any visitors that will access the building will be required to have a temperature check, face mask/face shield, and will hand sanitize before entering the building.

More information and details will be coming as we continue meeting with the health department and other local schools to finalize plans.

If you ever have any questions, concerns or ideas, feel free to contact me at school either via email at [email protected] or by phone 419-387-7724. Again, we want our students back in school!   

Yours in Education,

Traci Conley
