Gov. DeWine closes school for three weeks

 

 

All school events, athletic practices and games, club activities, meetings, etc, are canceled, beginning at 3 p.m. on Monday, March 16, and continuing through the mandated school closure date of Friday, April 3.

Students and staff in Kettering will be on Spring Break next week. Our administration will use this time to finalize plans and information regarding teaching and learning expectations beyond our scheduled Spring Break.

During his press conference today, Gov. DeWine did say that his office and the Ohio Department of Health will continually monitor the Coronavirus crisis to determine whether this mandated three-week school closure will need to be extended.

We will continue to communicate regularly with our staff, family and community as plans are finalized to make sure that everyone is aware of how they will be impacted by this situation.

I know this extended school closure will be difficult for all of us to manage, and I want to thank you for your patience as we continue to finalize our response to this unprecedented situation.

 

Scott Inskeep
Superintendent
