I am sure many of you join us in feeling the incredible disappointment of not being able to finish the school year together in our buildings, rather at home through remote learning instead. News that our buildings would be closed to students for the remainder of the school year naturally brings a lot of questions. Please know that while we do not know all of the answers just yet, I can assure you, our team continues to work diligently every day on planning.
May 1, 2020: As the state of Ohio begins to slowly reopen, the use of cloth masks or face coverings continues to be a hot topic. The Ohio Department of Health has released the following FAQs to clear up the confusion.
Our Nutrition Services department will continue to prepare grab-and-go style breakfast and lunch meals for our families in need. Pickup is on Mondays and Wednesdays at the high school.
For the last five years, the district has used BrightBytes (a trusted, secure, anonymous, 15 minute-or-less survey tool) to gather feedback around our district's technology initiatives. Because of remote learning, BrightBytes has adjusted the survey to provide information to help districts respond to the current needs of students, families, and staff members.
The Mentor Public Schools Board of Education will appoint a board member to finish a term ending December 31, 2021.
Applications are now available and will be accepted from May 1 through May 15, 2020.
There is a form that must be completed if your student is to be picked up or dropped off at a location other than his/her home. Public Daycare pick-up/drop-off locations must be on our approved child care facilities list. The pick-up and/or drop-off locations will be the same for every day of the week. In an effort to accommodate childcare needs, a parent may request an alternate bus stop for his/her child(ren) within the schools' attendance area. In order to honor first day of school requests, the request must be submitted by July 15 to the Transportation Dept.
