March 30th Update and FAQs
FAQs for Remote Learning at Arlington Local School
Updated March 30, 2020
How long will remote learning last this school year?
Based on Governor DeWine’s order on Monday, March 30, 2020, schools will continue to be closed to students through Friday, May 1, 2020. The Governor will make a decision on any extension to this school closure as that date approaches.
What do I do if I don’t have access to a device at home for remote learning?
- If there is no device at home that the student has access to, contact Clint Dillon at DillonC@arlingtonlocal.org
or leave a voicemail for him at school at 419-365-5121, Extension 342.
When will students/parents be permitted to return “physical” assigned work to the school?
Due to current federal and state social distancing guidelines, at this time students should keep those assignments with them at home. A plan will be put in place and shared with students/parents once additional information is received from our national and state leaders.
Will there be a school newsletter for the month of April?
- No. Parents and students should maintain communication with their classroom teachers during this time. Pertinent information will also be shared on the school website, www.arlingtonlocalschool.com
How can I access food if I need it?
- Feed-A-Child meals can be picked up at the new gym doors in the south parking lot of the school each Tuesday and Friday from 4:00-5:00PM.
- Findlay City Schools has been granted a waiver to offer a grab-and-go meal Monday through Friday from 11:30 am-12:30 pm at Glenwood Middle School and Lincoln Elementary School for children ages 1 through 18 from Hancock County. Children must be present to receive the meals.
Families in need can visit the Red Devil Pantry on Main Street in the parking lot across from Curly’s. All families are encouraged to donate non-perishable foods to the pantry.
Will there be any state online testing this year?
No. Ohio legislators have decided to cancel state testing for this school year. No decisions have been made on how that will affect students in the Class of 2021 or beyond.
Will the Class of 2020 still have a graduation ceremony?
Yes, as of now, we still plan to celebrate our graduates on Sunday, May 24, 2020.
Will any previously-scheduled school events take place in April?
No. Since the Governor has closed schools through May 1, 2020, all school activities are postponed until further notice. We hope to reschedule as many activities as we can rather than just canceling them.
- Will 4th Quarter grades/report cards still be issued to students?
- Yes. Governor DeWine has only closed school buildings, while still expecting teachers and students to complete learning activities remotely. Our Arlington teachers are working hard to provide lessons that our students can complete at home, with assistance from their families! Your assistance and patience are appreciated!
- Who do I contact for any other questions or concerns?
- Please reach out to your classroom teacher if you have questions that are not addressed in this FAQ. They will get you an answer to your question.
