COVID-19 Information

December 16, 2020

Good Afternoon,

We are announcing this afternoon our plans for the return to school after Christmas and New Year's.  Ashland County continues to have increasing COVID numbers, and the district is still struggling with obtaining substitute teachers in classrooms.

All of Loudonville-Perrysville Schools will be remote January 4-8, 2021.  Students in grades K-6 will return to in-person learning on January 11, 2021.  Students in grades 7-12 will return to in-person learning on January 19, 2021 (LHS students will be remote January 4-18) Martin Luther King, Jr Day is January 18, and there is no school for any students, per the district calendar.  Principals and teachers will be communicating additional details with regards to specific classes/classrooms as they become available.  Please be looking for any communication from your child's teachers and/or school building in the coming weeks.

Students who attend the Career Center will still be provided transportation from LHS to the Career Center.  Students who are typically dropped off at home in the afternoon will still be dropped off in the afternoon at home.  Any afternoon transportation students who need to be picked up in the morning need to call the bus garage to arrange transportation.

We encourage everyone to continue to be cautious over the holidays by limiting the amount of contact with people outside your "bubble."  The district has communicated in the past and will continue to do so-our goal is to remain in-person for as long as we can.  We especially want to keep our littlest learners in-person.

Decisions such as these are hard to make.  The mental health and safety of our students is our number one priority.  We appreciate your understanding as we wrestle with every decision and every situation.

We want to remind everyone: if you or someone in your household is being tested-STAY HOME.  If you or someone in your household in positive-STAY HOME.  If your student is sick or experiencing symptoms-STAY HOME.

Please inform your building (school personnel will be at school during remote learning): if you or someone in your household is being tested - even during remote learning, if you or someone in your household in positive-even during remote learning. 

If we want to make it to spring break without any additional extended remote learning time, we need your cooperation in following the guidelines above.

Thank you,

~Catherine Puster




When should I keep my student home?

1.  If anyone living in my house is in the process of being tested and notify the school office.

2.  If anyone in my house tests positive and notify the school office.

3.  If my student has any of the symptoms:  fever, lost of taste/smell...and notify the school office.

If you have questions, please contact your student's building for additional guidance.

There was a positive case in the district and some students and staff were exposed.  Any staff or student who was exposed will be notified by school personnel by the end of the day today.  At the time of this post, the district staff is working on the notifications.

The district continues follow Ashland County Health Department guidelines and protocols.  The buildings are disinfected daily.  For more information about the district protocols, please visit the district Reset Restart Guide found HERE.

Good Evening,

We know this is a very difficult time as the amount of COVID cases increases at an alarming rate in the State of Ohio.  It is important that families continue to keep the schools informed when someone in the household of a student is being tested for COVID-19.

Communication is critical in order for L-P to remain open and conduct face-to-face instruction.  We need for school to remain in-person.

Please inform your child's school office if you or someone in your household is being tested.  It is critical that the schools maintain accurate attendance records.

If someone in your household is being tested, please notify the school immediately.  Keeping student home until test results are given is critical to keep the potential spread to a minimum.

The L-P communities have done a fantastic job thus far in the pandemic!  We all need to continue to stay strong and healthy.

If you have any questions, please contact your student's school.

Thank you for your continued support.
