Dear Wizard Community,
During his update on Monday, Governor Mike DeWine stated that 80 percent of Ohioans live in a county that is considered to have a high risk level for COVID-19 spread, which does includes Lucas County.
As I mentioned in my email yesterday, HSA Springfield values student and staff safety and, given the current circumstances, we must act with an abundance of caution as we approach the holidays and the colder winter months – situations where the likelihood of COVID-19 spread increases exponentially.
Due to the worsening COVID-19 situation, HSA Springfield will be returning to fully remote learning beginning Monday, November 16th.
We will remain fully remote until at least return from winter break – Tuesday, January 5, 2021. We will, however, monitor the COVID-19 situation over winter break and may push back this physical return to the building if necessary.
Staff will continue to provide daily lessons through Seesaw (grades K-2) and Google Classroom (grades 3-8).
We encourage students and parents to utilize the YouCanBookMe system to arrange zoom meetings with teachers who can support students in their learning. Visit the school website to access each teacher’s YouCanBookMe link.
Teachers are also easily reached via email and will respond within 24 hours during the business week.
As always, the database (CSSIS) is available 24-7 at grades.horizonspringfield.org.
Free Meal pick-up will continue each week on Saturdays from 11am to 2pm and Friday from 12pm to 2pm (Friday pick-up starts next Friday 11.20.20).
If you need to sign up for meal pick-up, pleases complete this google form by Thursday at 3pm. If you have already signed up, you do not need to take any further action.
Technical support is still available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling at 419-405-5699 Monday-Fridays, between 8:00am – 6:00pm.
Should you need assistance acquiring internet, please email internet@horizonspringfield.
Our entire team appreciates your understanding, flexibility, and continued support during these challenging times. We remain hopeful that we will be able to return to hybrid instruction soon, as we have all thoroughly enjoyed having children in the building – even if just for a little while. In the meantime, please stay healthy and safe!
If you have any questions, please reach out directly to me at schreiner@horizonspringfield.
