School Closure

Work Permits During the School Closure

How can students go about obtaining a work permit under Ohio’s Minor Labor Laws if schools are closed?

According to the Ohio Department of Commerce, if a minor has all necessary paperwork completed and is unable to get the permit processed due to school closure, the completed paperwork may itself stand in the place of the physically printed permit. Employers should keep the paperwork on file, just like they would the permit. The formal permit should be processed as soon as the school is reopened.

As a reminder, hour restrictions outlined in Ohio Revised Code Section 4109 are still in place for any week that was not a pre-planned school holiday (i.e., spring break) and the prohibited/hazardous occupation restrictions are still active. 

To download a copy of the Parent or Guardian Consent Form for Minor Work Permit, click here .

For questions, call the Division of Industrial Compliance's Bureau of Wage and Hour Administration at 614-644-2239 or email webmaster@wagehour.com.state.oh.us.

Extended Closure of School Buildings

The attached order from the Ohio Department of Health extends the closure of school buildings through the end of June.  All academic and extracurricular activities are not permitted in school buildings during this time.

No District facilities will be allowed to be used until further notice, however, it is unknown what this means for  activities beyond July 1st.

District Coronavirus Communications

I wanted to share the following update with you:

June 2 removal of Ohio Health Orders:
Governor DeWine announced on Wednesday that all but a couple of Ohio Health Orders will be terminated on June 2. While the District is waiting for specific guidance from the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, and the Lucas County Health Department, the District does plan to remove the mandated mask and social distancing requirements along with some other COVID-19 procedural items on June 2. If students, parents, staff, and/or community members while on school grounds want to wear masks they can do so at their own discretion.

Please know the District will continue some of the established protocols like cleaning of facilities and providing hand sanitizer at designated locations inside of buildings over the summer and into next school year. Based on what has been shared with the District so far about next year, schools in Ohio will not have COVID-19 restrictions and will look like and feel like they did prior to COVID-19. We look forward to having all students in school buildings every day next school year! 

Vaccination Program for students age 12 to 18 years:
Our partners at the Toledo Lucas Health Department are teaming up with us to present a vaccination clinic for Anthony Wayne Local School students age 12 (as of May 20, 2021) and up and any other qualified individuals in their family.

The site for both vaccination appointments will be Anthony Wayne High School in the main cafeteria. Please come in the main gym doors and there will be signs directing you where to go. Park in the student lot nearest the gym– it will be marked clearly on the day of each event.

Great Activities Happening at AWLS!
There are many AWesome activities happening outside of the classroom here at AWLS! From community service projects, FFA plant sale, to the on-line AWHS theater departments performance of Vintage Hitchcock: A Radio Play today through Sunday, there is something for everyone. If you are interested in these events you can access information on our AWLS website in the rotating stories.

COVID-19
You may have heard on the news or social media that the Governor did his Thursday press conference here in Lucas County. Part of the reason for this visit was to highlight the concern of the increase in positive COVID-19 cases in the county. On March 11, Lucas County had its lowest case count (172 per 100K residents) since last October. Yesterday, the case count was approximately 341 per 100K residents which was the highest in the State of Ohio. While this number and increase is concerning, on December 10, the case count was approximately 825 per 100K residents. 

In the District we have seen an expected increase in positive cases after the Spring Break and Easter holiday especially at the high school and junior high. Also, the District has seen an increase in the number of quarantined students as a result of both exposure outside and inside of the school buildings. While these increases are significant, they are not currently at the level that the District experienced after the Thanksgiving or Winter Break. We continue to monitor the data and are hopeful that the numbers will decrease next week. 

Parents and students, please work with the District to prevent the spread of this virus and to reduce the potential exposure of the virus to other students. If a student has symptoms please do not send them to school. The District is seeing an increase in the number of high school students coming to school with symptoms. Let’s work together so the District is not in a position to have to change the schedule in a specific building and/or reduce the ability of our students and parents to experience extracurricular activities and programs as we finish out this school year. Thank you!

COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic
Thank you to the Toledo Lucas County Health Department for providing the vaccination program at the high school last night. There were 230 people that were vaccinated at the clinic. 

In-Demand Jobs Week
The week of May 3-7 has been designated In-Demand Jobs week in the State of Ohio. While our schools provide a number of age appropriate career-based programs and resources, one of the resources I would like to direct parents to is the Ohio Means Job website. On this site, you and your middle school to high school aged student can explore together in-demand job resources. I encourage you and your student to explore these resources together at: https://ohiomeansjobs.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/omj/for-students/for-students

Did you know?
Did you know that the parents can access many outstanding informational resources on positive student mental health on the AWLS website? With just a couple of clicks you can access a number of resources that may be very helpful to you as a parent! I encourage you to check it out at: https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/parent-tips-for-positive-student-health

I wanted to share a couple of items with you at this time.

COVID-19 
You may have heard on the news, social media, or from the Governor’s press conferences that the number of daily COVID-19 positive cases has increased over the last couple of weeks. For example, the reported Lucas County rate of positive cases was 299 per 100K last Thursday. Three weeks prior to that date the number was 170 per 100K. While these numbers are nowhere near the number back in December (I.e., 825 per 100K), the concern is the rapid increase over the last two week in the county and the District. 

The District expected, based on statements from medical experts, that we would see a spike in cases after Spring Break and Easter. The District has seen an increase in the number of positive student cases and students placed into quarantine. The increases in these numbers are primarily in the high school and junior high. The staff COVID-19 numbers have seen the opposite trend and continue to decrease since February. 

The District would like to see all students at school and be able to enjoy all of the activities planned for the rest of the school year. Please, the District asks you as students and parents, to complete a daily symptom check in an effort to keep everyone safe and stop the spread of this virus. Parents and students should make sure that if students have symptoms related to COVID-19 they should not be in school. If a student is sent to school with these symptoms and is positive for COVID-19 you are putting the health and safety of those in school at risk. If you have a question about symptoms please contact the school nurse. 

COVID-19 Vaccinations
The Toledo Lucas County Health Department (TLCHD) is providing a Pfizer vaccination clinic for AW students 16 years or older this Thursday from 3-7pm in the High School Main Gym. In addition, parents of these students, spouses of staff, and AWLS employees that are not vaccinated can attend this clinic. There was an email sent to those individuals who expressed interest in this vaccine clinic. We have also included some documents on the AW website in reference to the vaccination clinic. One is a Pfizer vaccine fact sheet which can be found HERE and also a parental consent form which can be found HERE or as a fillable form HERE.  You may fill out either form but the form must be downloaded and signed by the parent or guardian and brought with the student to the clinic.  If you have questions about this vaccination clinic please contact Lori Williams at (419) 877-5377.

The Toledo Lucas County Health Department shared with school districts that they expect Federal approval of the Pfizer vaccine for ages 12 and up in the month of May. The health department shared that if it’s approved for this age group school districts would be asked to hold clinics like the one at the high school. Once this information is available we will share it with parents.

AW Parents and community members interested in getting the vaccine at one of the TLCHD clinics can schedule an appointment at https://lucascountyhealth.com/covidvaccine/. There are many appointments available at this time. 

Thank you and Go Generals!!

Good afternoon!

Governor DeWine announced today that 16 year olds and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination, a week sooner than expected. Students that are 16 years and older can sign up to receive the vaccination from the Lucas County Health Department through their website (https://lucascountyhealth.com/). On their main website page, at the top right, there is a link to click on to schedule an appointment. Based on initial information we have received, a parent will need to be present with students 16 and 17 years of age during the vaccination from the Health Department. I would assume other locations (CVS, Walmart, Kroger, etc.) will have the vaccinations available in the near future. Those looking to receive their vaccination from the Lucas County Rec Center should look on Thursday at 6:00pm for appointment slots for the following week.

Pfizer has been emergency approved for those 16 years old and above at this time.

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have been emergency approved for those 18 years old and above.

If your student does receive the vaccination during school hours the District will accept a picture of the vaccination card that identifies the students name and date of vaccination as medical documentation for the excused absence. This documentation would need to be provided to the school office upon returning to school. 

Thank you and have a great day!! Go Generals!!

Addendum to the Ohio Department of Health Quarantine Order 
On Monday afternoon, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) issued an addendum to their last order on student participation in athletics. In the addendum, there were changes made to when student athletes will need to quarantine based on contact with a positive person in a classroom setting. The District did reach out to ODH for further clarification and were told they would only read the actual document to us and the local health department would provide specific clarification. We will seek clarification from the Lucas County Health Department on this latest change to the order. 

Follow-up Communication
Here is a link (https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/) to a follow-up communication posted as a rotating story on our website about the March 2nd Anthony Wayne St. John’s basketball game. 

Vaccinations in Ohio
On March 16, Governor DeWine announced that Ohioans 40 years or older are eligible for the vaccine starting March 19 and that the window for all residents 16 years of age and older can start scheduling their vaccine on March 29. 

 Like our staff, students who are two weeks past their second dose (Pfizer or Moderna) or first dose of Johnson & Johnson would be fully vaccinated and not need to quarantine for 90 days. Age restrictions do apply based on the vaccine manufacturer:

Pfizer approved 16 years and up

Moderna approved 18 years and up

Johnson & Johnson 18 years and up

Scheduling your vaccine:
You can schedule your COVID-19 vaccine using this link (https://lucascountyhealth.com/covidvaccine/), then click on the very top right-hand corner (the white box that says, "Schedule Appointment"), with whatever time works best for you. 

Lucas County Rec Center appointments open on Thursdays at 6:00 pm for those trying to schedule.

Ohio also has a centralized scheduling system you can access here (https://gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov/).

 

Finzel Road Detour
As you may know, Finzel Road is currently closed to traffic just south of Bucher Road. The Village of Whitehouse has shared that the road may be closed for up to 30 days. Finzel Road can be accessed north of the closure on either Rupp Road (via Cemetery Road), Grover Drive (via Cemetery Road), Weckerly Road, or Bucher Road. Thank you for your patience and use of caution as you travel in these detour areas. 

Thank you and Go Generals!!

AWLS Vaccination Program
On Friday, March 5, and Saturday, March 6, AWLS staff will be provided the opportunity to receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine during the Mercy Health/Lucas County Health Department program at the University of Toledo. The District wants to share a big thank you to Mercy Health, the health department, and UT for providing this option to our staff. Also, the District would like to say a big thank you to all the parents and students that adjusted their schedules this week to accommodate our staff attending this program. 

Daily Symptoms Checks
The District asks that parents work with their students and that staff continue to complete daily health checks for the symptoms of COVID-19 and take their temperatures at home prior to coming to school. If all staff and students go through this daily, the risk of a positive COVID-19 person riding a bus or entering one of the buildings is greatly reduced. If we work together on items like this related to COVID-19 safety practices, then we help to keep all of our students and staff safe and in school.

Open Positions at AWLS
The District is currently seeking qualified candidates for open full-time and part-time positions for the remainder of this current school year and next school year. You can review the list of open positions and apply at https://www.applitrack.com/anthonywayne/onlineapp/default.aspx

School Calendars
At this time of year we are commonly asked about the school calendars for the rest of this school year and next school year. You can access the current year (2020-21) school calendar on our website at: 

https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/files/CALENDAR_2020_21_BD_Approved_2019_12_09.pdf

Summer Intervention Programs
The District is working to finalize summer intervention programs at this time. We expect that most of the details will be available for these programs in the first part of April. Each building will share this information with you and it will be made available on our website.

2021 State Assessments
Each State was recently informed by the U.S. Department of Education that no waivers will be granted for State assessments this Spring. As a result of this decision, and no decision from the State of Ohio to modify State assessments, the District will be required to give these assessments in the next couple of months. Grades three through eight and some students at the high school will be required to take these assessments. Details on specific assessment dates will be provided by each building. 

2021 Graduation, Prom, etc.
As the COVID-19 positive and quarantine cases continue to go down and maintain a low level in our schools, community and the State, we are more likely to get back to some of our pre-COVID-19 normal activities. The Governor has stated publicly that they will provide specific information on graduation and prom in the next week. Once these details are shared publicly with school districts we will review them, continue our conversations with venues that hold these events, and determine how these events can move forward within the requirements this Spring. 

Thank you!
I want to thank all of our parents, students, staff, and administrators for all of your work together in the month of February! As we enter into the month of March, we have Spring hope and optimism that many of our “normal” school experiences, or at least very similar experiences, will return! We look forward to working with you over the next three months as we finish out this school year! 

Go Generals!!

Good afternoon!

I wanted to share the following communication with you. 

School Schedules for Grades 7-12
With the continual trend of the COVID-19 data (positivity rate amongst students/staff, positivity rate in our community, risk of transmission in the buildings, etc.) moving in the right direction and the vaccinations of many of our AWLS staff, the District has made the decision to transition grades 7-12 students from the hybrid schedule to an all-in schedule as described below. 

Starting on Monday, March 15th, students in grades 7-12 will have school with one day of remote learning (Monday) and four days (Tuesday through Friday) all-in. This schedule will be used for two weeks.

Starting the week after Spring Break, on Monday, April 5th, all 7-12 students will be in person Monday through Friday. We are hopeful that we can maintain this schedule for the remainder of the school year. 
 
School Schedules and COVID-19 Safety Protocols
When all students are in a school building, many of the COVID-19 safety measures such as washing hands on a regular basis, using hand sanitizer, wearing a face mask, etc., will continue to be utilized. More students will be in the building in the all-in schedule; therefore, there will be  less space to physically distance like we are able in the hybrid schedule. Thus, while our goal is to maintain physical distancing of students and staff, there will be times where students are within six feet of each other. With having all students in the building, the goal will be to strive for three feet of distance as suggested by the American Pediatrics Association. In addition, the District expects more students to ride the bus and will need to have students sitting closer than they have at this time in the hybrid schedule. 

Daily Symptoms Checks
As the District moves to have all students in session at the same time, the need for each student to go through a daily symptoms check is still very important to our success in this transition moving forward. The District asks you to continue to monitor your student(s) daily health, take their temperatures, and please do not send them to school if they are sick. Please contact the building nurse if you have any questions about symptoms. 

Other Items Related to the Schedule Changes
While there are many procedures that will remain the same to keep everyone safe, I would like to highlight a few at this time.

  • The District will continue to limit the number of visitors to the school buildings.
  • The District, in conjunction with the Lucas County Health Department, will continue to contact trace positive cases. Students that are positive or have been exposed to a positive person will still need to quarantine (per current requirements).
  • The District will continue to monitor student health at school. 
  • The District will continue to use the plans developed by the Ohio Health Department (ODH) and Ohio High School Athletic Association to provide athletic activities for students. 
  • The District will continue to use its plans to allow extracurricular activities to participate in alignment with ODH requirements.
  • The District will continue to use COVID-19 cleaning procedures in the District facilities and buses. 
  • The District will continue to use building operations safety protocols (i.e., safety signage, use of physical barriers, requiring flow of students to one direction in hallways, etc.). 
     

February Snow and Weather Conditions
With the current weather forecast over the next week, the Toledo area will easily surpass the record amount of snow for the month of February. So far this month, we’ve had three two-hour delays and two canceled school days as a result of the weather. I know these days can be frustrating for many reasons for parents, staff, and students. Please know the District does appreciate your flexibility in dealing with this winter weather. 28 days until Spring!!

Thank you!!

K-6 School Schedule
On Monday night at the Anthony Wayne Local Schools (AWLS) board meeting, the District announced that Monclova Primary, Waterville Primary, Whitehouse Primary, and Fallen Timbers students will change to a 5 day a week all-in schedule the week of February 22nd. 

As discussed at the board meeting, Anthony Wayne Junior High and Anthony Wayne High Schools will remain in the current hybrid schedule at this time. As we consider a return to an all-in schedule for these two buildings, many factors will be taken into consideration. For example, the Center for Disease Control is expected to release new school guidance this week. This new guidance, along with several other factors like the risk of transmission of the virus in these two buildings, the positive cases for students and staff, and the current level of quarantined students and staff, will determine the timeline for a transition to an all-in schedule. The great news is the COVID-19 data is trending in the right direction and we are hopeful for a transition in the very near future. 

One concern the District does have as we transition to an all-in schedule for all of our students is when students come to school symptomatic or positive for the virus. The District does understand that there are times that individuals may be positive and have no symptoms. If your student(s) do have symptoms, please make sure you stay home. If you have questions about the symptoms please feel free to contact our school nurses. 

I share this concern because one positive student could lead to 10-20 students, and potentially some staff members, in the all-in schedule being potentially exposed to the virus and placed into quarantine. Thus, it is extremely important that we continue daily symptom checks as students come to school. Thank you for your help with this important safety protocol. 

K-12 Vaccination Program
The Anthony Wayne Local Schools (AWLS) are excited to participate in the vaccination program today and tomorrow at the University of Toledo (UT) . We thank UT, Mercy Health, and the Lucas County Health Department for this program. In addition, we thank all of our AWLS parents and students for your understanding of not having a traditional day of school today to help facilitate this opportunity for the K-12 staff. 

I was very fortunate to receive the first dose of the vaccination this morning during a press conference with other Lucas County educational leaders. We agreed to do this so we can be an example for those K-12 staff who want the vaccination and encourage those who are considering getting the vaccine. I would also ask our community to consider getting the vaccine as well. 

The Health Department has informed Lucas County school districts that the vaccination program will continue with the second dose of the vaccine on Friday, March 5, and Saturday, March 6. As AWLS did this week, school schedules will be adjusted that week like they were this week. The same schedule will be used and is listed below. We once again appreciate your cooperation and understanding as AWLS staff attend this important vaccination program. 

In an effort to maximize the number of in-person learning days for students and allow AWLS staff to attend the vaccination program for the second dose on Friday, March 5th, the District will adjust the school schedule for all K-12 students to the following format. 

All K-6 students will attend school in person on March 1st through Thursday, March 4th.  Friday, March 5th will be a remote learning day and staff members will assign work for each class to complete on this day at home. There will not be Google Meet sessions on this day.

7-12 students- The Monday remote learning day scheduled for Monday, March 1st, will be switched to Friday, March 5th. So staff may attend their vaccination appointments, there will not be Google Meet sessions on Friday, March 5th. However staff members will assign work for each class to complete on this day.

7-12 students with the last name starting with A-L will attend school in person on Monday, March 1st, and Tuesday, March 2nd. These students will have their remote learning days at home on Wednesday, March 3rd, and Thursday, March 4th.

7-12 students with the last name starting with M-Z will have their remote learning days on Monday, March 1st, and Tuesday, March 2nd. These students will have their in-person learning days in school on Wednesday, March 3rd, and Thursday, March 4th.

AWLS apologizes for the late notice to parents, students, and staff about this change in the schedule. We appreciate your understanding of the need to maximize in-person learning time and to provide the vaccine to K-12 education employees through the Health Department program.  

Winter Weather
Over the last two weeks it seems we have experienced all of winter has to offer in the form of weather. As I have shared over the years, there are times that the weather conditions will result in school delays and cancellations for a number of reasons. When delays and cancellations are considered as a result of the weather, the District tries to make decisions and inform parents, students, and staff by 6:00am on that day. When there is a delay, and the District decides to cancel school, the District attempts to communicate this information by 8:00am. These timelines have been utilized in the eleven years that I have been superintendent. The District uses SchoolMessenger, Twitter, television stations, and radio stations to share closing and delay information. 

There are many factors that are used in determining a delay or cancellation. For example, last Friday, February 5th, was our first canceled school day of this year. The District started in a delay to provide time for additional snow and ice removal to take place throughout the District. When school personnel were out on the roads there were vast differences in driving experiences based on road conditions especially in rural areas compared to our villages, townships, and city as a result of ice accumulation and snow drifting. AWLS operations staff started that morning at 2:00am cleaning and placing salt on our parking lots and sidewalks. Prior to making the final call on the cancellation and three applications of salt on our campus parking lots, they were still thick with ice. Thus, the decision was made to cancel school for the safety of our students. 

Each day that a weather event takes place there can be a wide variety of factors that may need to be considered. The District will continue to use student safety as the determining factor in these decisions. As we continue in this Winter season, we are very hopeful that the weather will cooperate and our students can attend school. 

Thank you!
I just want to thank you again for your patience and flexibility this school year. I know frustration with COVID-19 and related decisions by the State, local health department, and our school district can cause stress and anxiety for you and your family. As a parent, I also wish that it could be different for my student. The District will continue to keep student and staff safety in the forefront of our decisions moving forward while balancing the need for our students to be in school five days a week. I am hopeful that we are closer to having all students in school than at any time since COVID-19 was introduced into our community. Once again, thank you for your patience and understanding. Have a great day! Go Generals!!

Good evening AWLS Parents!

I wanted to share the following information with you in regards to K-12 employee vaccinations and the impact that it has on this coming week’s school schedule. 

Governor DeWine announced that Lucas County K-12 education employees are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine beginning the week of February 8 . The Anthony Wayne Local Schools (AWLS), like many schools in Lucas County, are working with the Lucas County Health Department (LCHD) to provide this vaccine. We anticipate the vaccinations will be administered at a location in Toledo on Friday, February 12th, and Saturday, February 13th. We apologize to you for the late notice but the District is adjusting the school schedule next week based on the vaccination timeline so we can maximize the in-person learning for students. 

In an effort to maximize the number of in-person learning days for students and allow AWLS staff to attend the anticipated vaccination program on Friday, the District will adjust the school schedule for this coming week for all K-12 students. 

All K-12 students- The Monday remote learning day scheduled for Monday, February 8th, will be switched to Friday, February 12th. So staff may attend their vaccination appointments, there will not be Google Meet sessions on Friday, February 12. However staff members will assign work for each class to complete on this day.

All K-6 students will attend school in person on Monday, February 8th, through Thursday, February 11th. 

7-12 students with the last name starting with A-L will attend school in person on Monday, February 8th, and Tuesday, February 9th. These students will have their remote learning days at home on Wednesday, February 10th, and Thursday, February 11th.

7-12 students with the last name starting with M-Z will have their remote learning days on Monday, February 8th, and Tuesday, February 9th. These students will have their in-person learning days in school on Wednesday, February 10th, and Thursday, February 11th.

AWLS apologizes for the late notice to parents, students, and staff about this change in the schedule. We appreciate your understanding of the need to maximize in-person learning time and to provide the vaccine to K-12 education employees through the Health Department program. Also, please know that final details of the second vaccination program for this vaccine have not been shared with the District at this time, but the program is expected to take place either on or after March 5th.

Thank you and have a great night!
