Please review the district protocols found HERE and the district Continuity of Services found HERE. We also post weekly updates of COVID cases on our website.
Also, as was the case prior to COVID-19, if school personnel notice your student is ill at school, you may be called to come to school and take your child home.
While our focus and objective is to keep students in school as safe as possible, it is also a priority to do so when they will have optimal learning ability-and that is when students are feeling good.
Thank you for your continued support and diligence.

Good Evening Everyone!
We are on the final countdown to the start of a new school year.
The following information are reminders:
1. Open Houses are Monday, August 23, 2021. McMullen begins at 5:00, Budd begins at 5:30, and LHS begins at 6:00. Each is an hour in length.
2. Transportation information will be provided at Open Houses. If you have specific questions, please contact the bus garage at 419-994-3314.
3. Students first day is August 21, 2021. Each building has a special start schedule which can be found on each building's webpage.
4. The school day this year is approximately 8:00am to 3:00pm districtwide. *There may be 10 minutes on either end of the day depending on which building students attend.
We want to remind everyone about our COVID protocols:
1. If you or someone in your household is being tested - STAY HOME.
2. If you or someone in your household is positive - STAY HOME.
3. If your student is sick or experiencing symptoms - STAY HOME.
Additionally, when school starts, please inform your building:
1. If you or someone in your household is being tested.
2. If you or someone in your household is positive.
The district will continue to work the Health Department on quarantines and contact tracing. As we did last year, we will determine each situation on a case by case basis.
We are trusting that community parents and students will continue to conduct their own health checks prior to leaving home for school. It is important for everyone to understand and be aware of the possibility that school operations may change at a moment's notice. All of us need to be flexible, cooperative, kind, and understanding as we work to try to continue with a normal school year.
Thank you in advance for all your help and cooperation.

The attachment is the district's Continuity of Services Plan. Please remember that at any time the plan can change due to COVID restrictions and guidance.
I hope everyone has been able to relax and enjoy their summer. I write this evening to share information regarding the upcoming school year. There are a lot of reports and information being shared about all sorts of topics related to the pandemic. We are so appreciative of the understanding and flexibility from our families and staff over the last 18 months. We want to encourage everyone to continue being flexible and understanding as we plan for this new school year. Our goal is to provide a school year experience which is as close to “pre-COVID” as possible. However, we do need to keep in mind that we are still living through a pandemic.
We have been receiving questions about masks for the upcoming school year. First, we are returning to our “normal” routing for buses this coming school year. However we need to remember that wearing masks on public transportation is STILL a requirement- last year the Center for Disease Control (CDC) mandated/required that wearing a mask was a requirement on public transportation, and this requirement is still in place. School transportation is considered public transportation and therefore we are still requiring students and drivers to wear masks on school buses.
Secondly, the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly recommends students in grades K-12 wear a mask. However, at this time this is a RECOMMENDATION and not a requirement as it was last school year. Therefore, Loudonville-Perrysville Schools are not requiring masks to be worn by students and staff. Families and staff who choose to wear masks may do so at any time.
Third, it is critical that all families and staff continue to monitor their own health. If you have a fever and/or other symptoms- stay home. The same symptom standards from last year are still in place.
We want to remind everyone:
If you or someone in your household is being tested- STAY HOME.
If you or someone in your household is positive- STAY HOME.
If your student is sick or experiencing symptoms- STAY HOME.
When school starts, please inform your building:
If you or someone in your household is being tested,
If you or someone in your household is positive.
And finally, again, things and situations can change at a moment's notice. We ask that families remain flexible as we continue to navigate through the pandemic. It is our goal to be as normal as possible this school year.
The district will be publishing its Continuity of Services Plan as soon as possible. The document will be linked through Bloomz, Facebook, and the district website.
Thank you again for your continued support and understanding.
