COVID Protocols for School Year 2021 - 2022

As you know, COVID-19 is still an issue in our community.  Dawson-Bryant Local Schools will be implementing the attached COVID protocols for the 2021-2022 school year.  We hope that you will work with us to keep our students safe as possible.  
For the first time, the Federal Communications Commission is asking consumers about their internet connectivity experience.  Your input will help the FCC understand where in Ohio internet is most urgently needed.  Please contact the FCC if internet services in your area falls into one or more of these categories:  Inaccessible, Affordable, or Unreliable.  Take two minutes to tell your story at https://www.fcc.gov/BroadbandData/consumers

KNOW! Our Youth Are Beyond Stressed!
It doesn’t take an expert to see that as a whole, we are beyond STRESSED; our children are beyond stressed. What mental health professionals are telling us is that the COVID-19 pandemic has created circumstances unlike anything they have ever seen before.
Letter from Superintendent regarding extending virtual learning until February 8th
Dear Hornet Families:
We had initially planned to reopen school on Monday, February 1st.  I was hopeful that the students would be back in the classrooms. Unfortunately, things have changed, due to sickness and quarantined staff.   
We will plan to reopen Monday, February 8th.  
As always, we want to thank everyone for your patience, understanding, and prayers during this time.   
Be Safe!

Know! To Put Self-Care and Connection into Practice in the New Year
We’ve happily kicked 2020 to the curb and welcomed in 2021 with open arms. Now it is time to figure out what we want to make of this fresh, new year. If we learned anything in 2020, it is the importance of self-care and connection for a healthy mind and body. We may still be wearing masks, social distancing, and dealing with other COVID-related regulations, however, the time to get motivated, set new goals, and create joy is now. Students of all ages can and should be encouraged to do the same.
KNOW! Compassion and Caring to Reduce COVID Stigma
COVID-19 continues to present new challenges, burdens, and consequences in our daily lives and that of young people. A sneeze or cough in a public setting may have once elicited a “bless you,” but nowadays it’s more likely to prompt heads turning with looks of disapproval. For people who have, or have had COVID, they may feel as if they contracted the plague, based on the way others treat them. They may experience feelings of isolation, depression, and abandonment. The stigma that surrounds this disease must end, not only for the physical health and mental wellbeing of those who have COVID, but in order to help bring an end to this pandemic in communities throughout our nation and world.
Special Education Family Survey
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) would like to invite you to participate in a short, 25 question survey about your involvement in your student's education.  Research suggests that parental involvement is a key predictor of positive educational outcomes.  Please send the attached letter from Ohio Department of Education and The Ohio State University Center on Education and Training for Employment.
