AWLS COVID-19 Data

Current Numbers as of 11/13/2020…(Based on what has been shared with the District)

AWLS COVID-19 numbers this week:

  • Currently, 8 staff members, 4 high school students, and 3 junior high students are positive for COVID-19. In each of these positive cases, contact tracing suggests that these individuals contracted the virus from non-school related events. 
  • 204 students (14 of these are in the On-line Academy) and 26 AW employees are currently in quarantine.
  • The students in quarantine represent approximately 4.64% of the students in the District. The employees in quarantine represent 5.51% of the employees in the District.
  • Of the students in quarantine, 72 are at the high school, 29 at the junior high, 29 at Fallen Timbers, 22 at Monclova Primary, 25 at Waterville Primary, and 13 at Whitehouse Primary. 
  • Of the students in quarantine, many of these exposures happen from interactions with family members, with people in our community, and through non-school travel sports. 

 

The District continues to monitor the COVID-19 data and risk for transmission at school each week. The CDC risk of transmission indicators moved from a “Lower” to “Moderate” risk of transmission in the schools. With that said, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to maintain COVID-19 safety procedures in and outside of school. If we do not, we will continue to see these numbers rise.

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

The Lucas County Health Department approved an "order" (not a recommendation) that would officially start December 4 (4pm) and go through January 11 (8am). The order addresses the K-12 school schedule and student participation in athletics and extracurriculars. In addition, the Health Department approved a recommendation that schools immediately put in place the elements in the order.

While the District has not seen the specific language of the order, we believe it would require 7-12 students to be educated in the a remote schedule, would allow the option of K-6 students to be taught in person, and would allow for school testing and the education of special education students in person from December 4 and January 11. Also, 7-12 athletics and extracurriculars would be paused during this same time. In addition, youth sports would not be allowed to use school facilities for their activities during this same time. 

Please know that the health department did ask for Lucas County schools opinions (public, private, charter) about the items in the order during a meeting on Monday. There was a mixed response to the potential of these plans. Ultimately, the health department decided it was in the best interest of the community to approve this order and recommendation. 

I would ask that you allow the District time to review the order/recommendation and determine our next steps before sending the District questions about it. Please be aware that at this time the K-12 remote learning schedule from November 30 through December 18 will continue as planned. We will plan to send out additional communications soon but we ask that we all be patient over this holiday break.

Thank you and have a great Thanksgiving!

Good afternoon!

Yesterday, in my morning “Generals Grit” message that I shared with AWLS staff each day I asked them to complete the following sentence “This year has presented challenges, but I will never forget ____________.” and share it with a fellow co-worker. This sentence allows a person to share a positive comment with another person. When a person hears a positive comment it can generate a chemical in your brain that makes the person feel happy, feel like they can persevere, and satisfied with their current situation. Yes, one simple comment can have a dramatic effect on a person's day or outlook on an issue. 

Gratitude by definition means “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return of kindness.” During this time of year we are all reminded of the opportunity to give thanks for what we have in our lives and for those around us. I am deeply grateful for the students, parents, staff, and the community of this school district. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., stated “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.” As a community, we have an opportunity to change the lives of almost 4400 students each school day by providing them experiences that allow them to academically and personally grow. Yes, this school year is different than any other year, but our work together has allowed all of us to persevere. So I say Thank you! I challenge parents, staff, and students to find ways to share your gratitude this next week of the Thanksgiving break. 

Please remember...

As previously announced, the Anthony Wayne Local Schools will be using the remote learning schedule for a three week period of time (November 30 through December 18). The building administrator will be sending you a communication today in regards to several important items as we make this transition. Please make sure you read through this important communication.

During Thanksgiving break and while the students are in a remote learning schedule, it is very important for the District to be informed when a student has been exposed, is being quarantined or isolated, or has tested positive for COVID-19 in order to be able to trace cases and inform the Lucas County Health Department. We ask that parents report students that fall into these categories by emailing Kevin Herman at kherman@anthonywayneschools.org or Lori Williams at lwilliams@anthonywayneschools.org. If more convenient, you may contact them via text or cell phone. Mr. Herman’s number is 419-704-3462 and Miss Williams’s can be reached at 419-206-7869. Please include your name and contact information, along with  your child’s name, grade, and whether he or she is being quarantined or isolated, has been exposed or tested positive for COVID-19, and/or is showing symptoms. Mr. Herman or Miss Williams will follow up with you as quickly as possible and definitely within 24 hours. You may also contact them with any questions concerning your child(ren) and COVID-19.

Thank you!

Once again, from all of the AWLS staff we say thank you to all of you! We wish you the best during this Thanksgiving break! Go Generals!!

Thank you,

Jim Fritz

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the District’s goal has been, and continues to be, to provide our students and staff a safe environment to learn and work. The District is experiencing a large increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases and quarantines of students and staff members; as is our community, the county, and state. In most cases, these numbers have increased three to four times what they were just two weeks ago. The Lucas County Health Department, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Governor have shared their concerns with rising numbers even with additional safety procedures and protocols in place; the positivity rate unfortunately continues to rise. While most of the student and staff cases have been exposures from outside of the schools, we have begun to see some students and staff members being placed into quarantine based on exposure at school or while on the school bus. With the increased number of staff being placed into quarantine or isolation, the District has had unfilled teacher and bus driver positions that haven’t been able to be filled by substitute employees over the last two weeks. Unfortunately, the number of staff and students being quarantined or isolated each day is growing which is compounding the problem since most of these individuals are out of school for 10-14 calendar days. As a result, Anthony Wayne Local Schools will be switching to a remote learning schedule for PreK-12 students for a three week period of time from November 30 through December 18. The District is hopeful that we will be able to remain in the hybrid schedule over the next three days to provide an opportunity for valuable in-person instruction, give students items they may need during the remote learning, and allow them to collect personal items they may need from the buildings. 

Each of the school buildings will be sharing a communication with parents in regards to the remote learning schedule in the very near future. In this communication, there will be several items related to various items including the daily schedule for students, technology devices, internet access, and breakfast and lunches distribution. The District will also put this information on the AWLS website at: https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/Coronavirus

During Thanksgiving break and while the students are in a remote learning schedule, it is very important for the District to be informed when a student has been exposed, is being quarantined or isolated, or has tested positive for COVID-19 in order to be able to trace cases and inform the Lucas County Health Department. We ask that parents report students that fall into these categories by emailing Kevin Herman at kherman@anthonywayneschools.org or Lori Williams at lwilliams@anthonywayneschools.org. If more convenient, you may contact them via text or cell phone. Mr. Herman’s number is 419-704-3462 and Miss Williams can be reached at 419-206-7869. Please include your name and contact information, along with  your child’s name, grade, and whether he or she is being quarantined or isolated, has been exposed or tested positive for COVID-19, and/or is showing symptoms. Mr. Herman or Miss Williams will follow up with you as quickly as possible and definitely within 24 hours. You may also contact them with any questions concerning your child(ren) and COVID-19.

Again our commitment is to the safety of our students and staff. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 data to determine when students and staff can safely return to the hybrid schedule. As of today, we expect to return to the hybrid schedule on Monday, January 4. 

Thank you,

Good Afternoon Parents and Staff-

I thought Halloween was over...

Headlines…COVID-19 on the rise, recent full moon, recent time change in our area, and a Friday the 13th. Yes, these were headlines back in March of this year when we went to a K-12 remote learning schedule across the State. Today, on this Friday the 13th, we are faced with some of the same headlines. Yes, this is all frustrating. I believe we have to ask ourselves what our response will be moving forward. 

On Wednesday night, Governor DeWine held a press conference where he shared his concerns with the current COVID-19 data. In his comments he mentioned the concerns that school districts will be faced with as a result of increased positivity rate in our communities across the State. As the Governor mentioned, and a story in the Toledo Blade today shares, school districts across the State are faced with an increase in the number of staff placed into quarantine and/or are positive based on community spread of the virus. This issue may result in school districts having to go to a remote schedule because they simply don’t have people willing to be substitute employees to fill these open positions. You may agree with or disagree with the Governor’s comments but the reality of this situation is that if we continue to see a significant increase in the quarantine and/or our positivity rate within our students and/or staff we will be forced to go to the remote learning schedule for a period of time. As I mentioned above, one of the main reasons for this will be the lack of substitute staff to fill open positions for staff that are out as a result of being placed into quarantine and/or are positive. I am asking that parents either start or review your plans if the District has to go to a remote school schedule in the future. 

As I shared in a past communication, Event + Response = Outcome. Ultimately, each of us will determine our response to this increase in community spread. If we don’t like the outcomes at this time we must change our response. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” If we are going to change this outcome we must do it together.

If you are able to help the District, interested in working with awesome students, and want to be a substitute employee please contact Kevin Herman (419) 877-5377 or fill out an application at https://www.applitrack.com/anthonywayne/onlineapp/default.aspx

 

What a difference a couple weeks makes...

As I shared last week, more than likely in the last week or so you have received at least one letter about a positive case in your student(s) school building. We have seen a sharp increase in the number of quarantine and positive cases with staff and students. Below you will find a comparison of the single day numbers from November 1st and November 12th. Please remember that most of these situations are from exposures outside of the school district.

 

COVID-19 numbers this week

Here are the cumulative COVID-19 positive cases in Lucas County as of 11/12/2020:

 

Lucas County stayed red this week in the State's Alert System. In the below diagrams you can see the alert levels over the last two weeks. As you can see, the number of red counties continues to increase. 

 

The next diagram is the number of positive cases per zip code. In addition it shows the number of cases over the last 7 days, 14 days, and 21 days. Our school district property zip codes are 43537, 43566, 43571, 43542, and 43522. In some cases, the zip code does go into another school district like 43537 which is part of Monclova Township and the City of Maumee.

 

AWLS COVID-19 numbers this week

Current Numbers as of 11/13/2020…

  • Currently, 8 staff members, 4 high school students, and 3 junior high students are positive for COVID-19. In each of these positive cases, contact tracing suggests that these individuals contracted the virus from non-school related events. 

  • 204 students (14 of these are in the On-line Academy) and 26 AW employees are currently in quarantine.

  • The students in quarantine represent approximately 4.64% of the students in the District. The employees in quarantine represent 5.51% of the employees in the District.

  • Of the students in quarantine, 72 are at the high school, 29 at the junior high, 29 at Fallen Timbers, 22 at Monclova Primary, 25 at Waterville Primary, and 13 at Whitehouse Primary. 

  • Of the students in quarantine, many of these exposures happen from interactions with family members, with people in our community, and through non-school travel sports. 
     

The District continues to monitor the COVID-19 data and risk for transmission at school each week. The CDC risk of transmission indicators moved from a “Lower” to “Moderate” risk of transmission in the schools. With that said, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to maintain COVID-19 safety procedures in and outside of school. If we do not, we will continue to see these numbers rise.

Good Afternoon Parents and Staff-

Current COVID-19 Data

More than likely as a parent or staff member you may have received a letter this week about a positive student or staff member in a school building. Over the last week the District has seen an increase in the number of quarantine and positive students and staff in the District. Many of these situations are the result of exposure to a family member at home, a non-school related hockey tournament, recent small group interactions and other sources outside of the school buildings. On Wednesday, we had 7 students at Waterville Primary, 7 students at Monclova Primary, 3 students at Whitehouse Primary, 3 students at Fallen Timbers, 6 students at the Junior High, and 7 students at the high school placed into quarantine based on exposures outside of the school. Thus, 33 students were placed into quarantine in one day. Many of these students were placed into quarantine based on exposure to a person who was positive outside of school. 

The good news is that the positivity and quarantine rate with students and staff is at a lower level than the rate in the State or in Lucas County. For example, the Lucas County Health Department and the State positivity rate is fluctuating between 6-8% as of this week. As of this morning, the staff positivity rate is 1.27% and the student positivity rate was 0.18%. Also, please know that the staff quarantine rate was 2.97% and the student quarantine rate was 2.14% this morning. Please remember that with these situations almost all of these are the results of interactions outside of the school buildings.

COVID-19 Summary Data from the Start of the School Year

We’ve lived the first quarter of school with COVID-19 influencing many aspects of our school district. I believe, based on the data below, the District has provided a safe environment for students to learn in the first quarter. Like the current data, the summary data is at a lower level than the rates at the State and county level.

Below is the summary COVID-19 data since the start of school as of the end of October.

  • The average student positivity rate each day has been 2.3 which represents 0.05% of the student population with the majority of these cases at the high school. 
     
  • The average staff positivity rate each day has been 0.37 which represents 0.08% of the staff population. 
     
  • The average student quarantines each day have been 26.8 which represents 0.6% of the student population with the majority of these cases at the high school. 
     
  • The average staff quarantines each day have been 3.58 which represents 0.76% of the staff population. 
     

Through discussions with the Lucas County superintendents and the health department public schools are not seeing the same level of spread of this virus within the school buildings as in the county or the State. Below you will find the county and State data for this week.

 

COVID-19 numbers this week

Here are the cumulative COVID-19 positive cases in Lucas County as of 11/3/2020:

 

Lucas County stayed red this week in the State's Alert System. In the below diagrams you can see the alert levels over the last two weeks. 

 

AWLS COVID-19 numbers this week

Current Numbers as of 11/6/2020…

  • Currently, 6 staff members, 3 high school students, 2 junior high students, 1 middle school student, 1 monclova primary student, and 1 waterville primary student are positive for COVID-19. In each of these positive cases, contact tracing suggests that these individuals contracted the virus from non-school related events. 
     
  • 94 students and 14 AW employees are currently in quarantine.
     
  • The students in quarantine represent approximately 2.14% of the students in the District. The employees in quarantine represent 2.97% of the employees in the District.
     
  • Of the students in quarantine, 35 are at the high school, 14 at the junior high, 12 at fallen timbers, 9 at monclova primary, 17 at waterville primary, and 7 at whitehouse primary. 
     
  • Of the students in quarantine, many of these exposures happen from interactions with family members, with people in our community, and through non-school travel sports. 
     

The District continues to monitor the COVID-19 data and risk for transmission at school each week. While the risk of transmission has increased, based on the CDC indicators, the level still remains in the “Lower” risk category. With that said, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to maintain COVID-19 safety procedures in and outside of school. If we do not, we will continue to see these numbers rise.

Good Afternoon Parents and Staff-

Good afternoon! Each Friday afternoon the District provides an update on COVID-19 on the AWLS website. This information can be found at: https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/Coronavirus

Meeting with the Lucas County Health Department & Questions from Parents
On Thursday, area superintendents had our weekly meeting with the Lucas County Health Department. During the meeting we discussed the current rise in positive cases and community spread within the county and the State in relationship to what is happening within our school buildings. As the Governor shared yesterday, “Of the 10 highest days of new cases reported, eight have occurred in the last nine days. Nine have occurred in the month of October alone.” Unfortunately, the positivity rate and COVID-19 hospitalization rate have significantly increased as well since the start of October throughout the State. While we are seeing an increase in the number of positive students and those placed into quarantine, we are not experiencing significant spread of the virus inside our school buildings or our extracurricular activities.  

The District has received questions from some parents asking if we were going to move the high school to a remote schedule for a period of time based on the 5 positive cases. In our District buildings, at this time we do not have significant spread of the virus and the positivity rate is low (see percentages below in the school data report). The hybrid schedule that we have in place plays a part in these low numbers because of the implementation of all safety precautions from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Department of Health. Thus, as we discussed in our meeting with the health department, there is no need to change the school schedule at the high school or in the District at this time based on the increased positivity rate and community spread in Lucas County and our AW community.

The District is also receiving questions from parents asking when the school schedule will be changed to the all-in option. At this point, with the high rate of positivity and spread in the community, the hybrid schedule is helping to reduce the possibility of spread of the virus when students are in the building. The AWLS Board of Education will meet again in two weeks (November 9th) and will review the COVID-19 data and school schedule. 

 

COVID-19 numbers this week
Here are the cumulative COVID-19 positive cases in Lucas County as of 10/22/2020:

Lucas County stayed red this week in the State's Alert System. Unfortunately, across the State, more counties went from orange to red this past week. As the Governor stated in his press conference yesterday the number of positive cases across the State continue to rise at this time. 


AWLS COVID-19 numbers this week

Current Numbers as of 10/23/2020…

Currently, zero staff and 6 students are positive for COVID-19 (Five students at the high school and one student at the Junior High)

The five positive students at the high school represent approximately 0.2% of the students in that building. In each of these situations, the contact tracing determined the contraction of the virus was from a non-school related exposure. 

The one positive student at the junior high represents approximately 0.1% of the students in that building. In this situation, the contact tracing determined the contraction of the virus was from a non-school related exposure. 

78 students and 3 AW employees are currently in quarantine.

The 78 students in quarantine represent approximately 1.7% of the students in the District. The 3 employees in quarantine represent 0.6% of the employees in the District.

Of the 78 students in quarantine, 36 are at the High School, 14 at the Junior High, 3 at Fallen Timbers, 10 at Monclova Primary, 8 at Waterville Primary, and 7 at Whitehouse Primary. 

Of the students in quarantine, many of these exposures happen from interactions with family members, with people in our community, and through non-school travel sports. 

The District continues to monitor the COVID-19 data and risk for transmission at school each week.

Good afternoon! Each Friday afternoon the District provides an update on COVID-19 on the AWLS website. This information can be found at: https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/Coronavirus

COVID-19 Pop Up Testing-

According to the Lucas County Health Department, the number of positive COVID-19 cases in our community have significantly increased as a result of community spread of the virus over the last 7 days. Last night, the Lucas County Health Department requested to offer a free pop-up drive-thru testing program on Monday, October 19th, from 9am to 2pm in the front parking lots of the AW campus buildings on Finzel Road. The Ohio National Guard will run this pop-up drive-thru testing program that is open to anyone, especially those in the AW community. 

Please know that students will not be in session on Monday, there is no cost to the District for this testing, and all testing will be completed while individuals are in their cars in the parking lot. All testing will be done in a secure and safe manner by the Lucas County Health Department and Ohio National Guard. Due to all the safety precautions taken, the school grounds and testing environment are safe for individuals on the grounds or in the facilities while the testing is in progress. If you would like to take advantage of the free testing the health department asks that you complete the registration materials prior to coming (but not required) and they will be available later today at:

https://www.lucascountyhealth.com/covidtest/ 

Travel Advisory-

With Indiana added this week to the travel advisory list I have been asked about the District policy on travel. Please see our response below.

The State has a travel advisory chart that is updated each week. The chart shares a list of states the Ohio Department of Health would advise Ohio residents to not travel to at this time. With a positivity rate of 15% or more, if Ohio residents travel to these states, they are recommended to self-quarantine for 14 days. This self-quarantine is not a requirement, but a recommendation. The school district can’t require students to self-quarantine based on a travel advisory to those states but would advise against travel to those states based on the high positivity rate. You can review this information and the states on the list at:

COVID-19 numbers this week

Here are the cumulative COVID-19 positive cases in Lucas County as of 10/16/2020:

Lucas County changed from orange to red this week in the State's Alert System. Unfortunately, across the State, more counties went from orange to red this past week. As the Governor stated in his press conference yesterday the number of positive cases across the State are rising at this time. 

AWLS COVID-19 numbers this week

Current Numbers as of 10/16/2020…

Currently, zero staff, one coach and 3 students are positive for COVID-19 (Two students at the high school and one student at the Junior High)

57 students and 5 AW employees are currently in self-quarantine. 

The District continues to monitor the COVID-19 data and risk for transmission at school each week. 

Thank you,
