Responsible Restart: Staggered Start to School Attention Graphic

In order to ensure a smooth transition back to school for all of our students, we have modified the 1st Week Back to School Schedule (September 8th-11th). Transportation will run at normally scheduled times during this week, however busses may arrive early to bus stops due to reduced bus capacity so we encourage parents to arrive at the bus stop early during this week. 

We also realize that there are blended families and students in a household with different last names. Please contact your specific building if you want to modify attendance days to accommodate this situation. 

This schedule is only for the week of September 8th-11th. Starting Monday, September 14th all students will attend 5 days per week. 

Tuesday, September 8th: All Students Grades PreK-12 with last names beginning (A-K) will attend school at the regularly scheduled times. 

Wednesday, September 9th: All Students Grades PreK-12 with last names (A-K) will attend school at the regularly scheduled times.

Thursday, September 10th: All Students in Grades PreK-12 with last names beginning (L-Z) will attend school at the regularly scheduled times. 

Friday, September 11th: All students in Grades PreK-12 with last names beginning (L-Z) will attend school at the regularly scheduled times.

Ross Releases The Responsible Restart Plan Responsible Restart Logo

In accordance with the guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the Ohio Department of Health, the Butler County Health Department and in consultation with school districts across Butler County and the Greater Cincinnati area, the following guidelines outline the Responsible Restart Plan of the Ross Local School District for the 2020-2021 school year.

2020-2021 School Re-opening Communication Update corona 19

On March 16, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Ohio schools closed for the remainder of the school calendar year by order of Governor DeWine and the State Health Commissioner. As of late June, little guidance is available from the Ohio Department of Education for school re-opening for the 2020-2021 school year.

The Ross Local School District intends to begin the 2020-2021 school year with all students attending a full day of school on a daily basis (5 days/week). In cooperation with other Butler County school districts as well as the Butler County Health Department, we are in the process of developing guidelines for the upcoming school year that must be followed as we move forward with our schools’ re-opening.

It is important for students, parents, and the community to understand that the school experience will not be conducted as it was prior to COVID-19. Safety precautions for all aspects of our schools will be in place which will alter previous procedures and protocols. 

On July 24th, we’ll release our full plan which will outline changes and/or modifications to transportation, food service, required handwashing, sanitizing protocols, social distancing, classroom instruction, visitor access, recess, field trips, and other daily practices.

As our District Leadership Team works through the process of developing this plan, we ask for your patience and understanding.  We recognize that our Ross students learn, grow, and achieve best through attending school on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure that they are able to do so in the safest environment possible.
