School Closure Extended Through May 1st

Dear Eaton Community Schools Families,                                                          

On March 30, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine made an announcement extending the order that all of Ohio’s public, community, and private K-12 school buildings remain closed to students through May 1, 2020, due to the coronavirus health crisis. The Governor also stated in his Press Conference/Update that he would revisit the situation closer to May 1, 2020.

Our teachers and administrators are continuing to work diligently to provide your child with educational opportunities. I am very impressed and proud of our teachers and administrators and how they have adjusted, learned and experimented with a very different style of instruction and learning. I know they will continue to work through these unprecedented times and follow the guidance of Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio Department of Education. We will continue to keep you updated as we work through the district’s plans moving forward.

We do want to address a few items, however, we encourage families to visit our FAQ for Parents on our district website at www.eaton.k12.oh.us.

 

Food Distribution

Any Eaton student in need of meals are invited to pick up meal bags containing 5 days works to breakfast and lunch items. Meal pick up will be at the building where the child attends. If your family has multiple children in multiple building, please pick up the meals for all students at the building where your oldest child attends.

For students who live in Lakengren, a pick up location will be at the Lakengren Marina.  

For students who live near Morning Sun and Fairhaven, a pick up location will be at Roberts Tractor Supply in Morning Sun. 

Pick up times will be every Thursday from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

 

Eaton Schools Closed Due to State-Wide Order

Dear Families:

Together, we are facing an unprecedented health crisis in our community.  In our response to COVID-19, we must depend on the wisdom of our health experts and elected officials and lean on the resolve of our strong community.

We have been following the guidance of the Ohio Department of Health, the Preble County General Health District, and the Ohio Department of Education in implementing preventative and responsive strategies. However, on March 12, 2020, Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine, issued an order to close schools in Ohio for 3 weeks beginning at the end of the school day Monday, March 16, 2020.

In response to Governor DeWine’s directive, Jeff Parker, Superintendent, and the Eaton Community School Board of Education will close Eaton Community Schools for a minimum of 3 weeks.  This necessary action is an effective way to disrupt widespread infection.  Students will attend school on Friday, March 13, 2020 in an effort to allow parents an additional day to secure childcare for the upcoming weeks.  Additionally, this will allow teachers to finalize lessons, discuss educational resources to utilize during the closure, and what to expect in the coming weeks.   

Eaton Community Schools is dedicated to the education of our students and will be providing remote learning opportunities through various outlets.  On Friday, teachers will be communicating with students as to items they should plan to take home with them to use as resources for remote learning. At this time, the following schedule will be put in place.
