Superintendent's Message



Dear Wyoming City Schools Families,

Thank you very much for completing your Back to School forms. Your feedback has been extremely important as we take our next steps with our Plan for Return!

Calendar Change:

We are making some adjustments to the first two weeks of the school year. We believe that these adjustments to the calendar will allow us to provide our students with a more personalized experience as they start the year, while giving our staff more time to prepare, and providing our families with more certainty for planning purposes.

The first day of school for 1st-12th grade students will no longer be Monday, August 17.

We will be starting the year with an orientation day for our 1st-12th grade students as follows:

Wednesday, August 19: All-Online Learners Orientation Day

Thursday, August 20: Cohort A (A-L) In-Person Learners Orientation Day

Friday, August 21: Cohort B (M-Z) In-Person Learners Orientation Day

Orientation Days will be the length of a regular school day with All-Online Learners Orientation Day taking place online and In-Person Learners Orientation Days taking place in school buildings. (Information about kindergarten orientation will be shared directly with kindergarten families.)

The week of August 24: We will run a Hybrid Plan Week (regardless of if Hamilton County is at Level 1, 2 or 3 on the Ohio Public Health Advisory System). During Hybrid Plan weeks, the schedule is as follows: 

 

HYBRID PLAN WEEK SCHEDULE

The week of August 31: We will begin to align our In-Person Learning Level with the Ohio Public Health Advisory System: 

LEVEL 1 and LEVEL 2: 5 days of In-Person Learning

LEVEL 3: Hybrid Plan Schedule

LEVEL 4: Online Learning for All

We will move to Online Learning for All for Orientation Days and/or the week of August 24, if that becomes necessary due to Hamilton County moving to LEVEL 4. More information about the Plan for Return and cohort grouping can be found here

Cohort groupings are determined by the first initial of the student's last name: Cohort A is A-L; Cohort B is M-Z. For families with children with more than one surname, placement is based upon the oldest student’s surname. If you have any questions about cohort groupings, please contact your child’s principal.

Annual Registration Process:

Please click here and complete your Back-to-School Student Registration at this time. All parents and caregivers must update or validate their children’s vital information through this online process each year.

Parent/Caregiver Confidentiality Requirements and Safety Protocols Acknowledgement:

Please click here to receive the Remote Learning Confidentiality Requirements and Safety Protocols of the Wyoming City School District. All parents and caregivers must use this link to acknowledge they have received this community commitment.

We appreciate your patience and partnership as we begin the year with a plan that most appropriately addresses the instructional, safety, and social/emotional needs of our students.

Sincerely,

Tim Weber

Superintendent
