Unleashing Potential :  #SpartanStrong

​Coronavirus 2019 Information
​Last Updated march 18, 2020

At Pleasant Local Schools, the health, safety and well-being of our students, staff, and community are our top priorities.  With the recent order from our Governor, the following measures have been put in place:

District Information:

·      Students last day on campus until April 5, 2020 will be Friday, March 13, 2020.  Parents are reminded that the Governor has established this 3-week window as a minimum.  Pleasant will continue to update our community as we receive information.

·      Monday, March 16, 2020 has been established as a professional development day for ALL staff.  Students will stay home and receive communication from their teachers regarding learning experiences and procedures by the end of the day Monday, March 16, 2020.

·      Students in grades 5-12 will participate in digital learning experiences beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

·      Students in Kindergarten through Grade 4 will utilize at home learning menus beginning March 17, 2020.

·      No extended learning will take place during Spring Break:  March 23 – March 27.

·      Students participating in extra curricular activities will meet with their coaches Friday, March 13, 2020 for updated information regarding the next 3 weeks.


Families are reminded that closing school does not mean that class is not in session (except during our scheduled spring break). Our students in grades 5-12 can transition from an in-school to a distance learning environment.  Our staff will utilize learning platforms that are already familiar with staff and students.  Elementary students can utilize the learning experiences they have in the classroom to continue to develop their skills as readers, writers, mathematicians, historians, and scientists. 

Students who do not have access to a Wi-Fi enabled device or the internet will receive accommodations.  Our teachers will reach out to parents of students to assess needs.

Please note that a distance-learning day does not mirror an in-school day. Students will not be constrained by traditional class hours, and course work may be adjusted to be better suited for at-home learning.  As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or school administration. 


Elementary Instructional Info
In K-4, teachers will communicate daily with students and families through Class Dojo. 
Students will be given weekly learning menus with a variety of tasks to complete. For questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher via Dojo or email. 


Middle School Instructional Info
Pleasant Middle School will offer distance learning through student iPads.  Middle School staff will communicate with students via email, Class Dojo, Google Classroom and their teacher websites.  


High School Instructional Info
Pleasant High School students will be involved in online learning via their iPad or home device. Those students who do not have either of those devices will be assigned a device by the end of the school day Friday, March 13, 2020. High School teachers will communicate their learning opportunities and assignments to students through the use of Google Classroom or via email.  Those students who have questions about an assignment will be able to reach their teachers via email during regular business hours Monday-Friday. 


Food Service -- UPDATE!

Meal Service Plan during Extended Closure

1.) On Thursday, March 19th: Meals will be delivered to your child’s normal bus stop, between the hours of 11AM – 1PM (Thursday ONLY). No meals will be delivered during Spring Break: Mar. 23 - 27. We will send out more information next week with the delivery schedule for the week of March 30th.

a.) Meals will include a lunch and a breakfast for BOTH Thursday and Friday, March 20th. There will NOT be a meal delivery on Friday, March 20th!
b.) These meals may include perishable items and someone will need to be available to accept or pick-up these meals.
c.) Food Allergies: Some meals may contain nuts or other ingredient that may cause an allergic reaction in your child. Students with known food allergies should not consume these meals items if they do not have an ingredient list.

2.) Delivery to homes: Please have your son/daughter be on the lookout for the bus during the above timeframe. Our bus drivers, aides, and kitchen staff are working to deliver your child’s meals.

a.) Expectations from families:

i Someone from the family is to come outside, walk partially down the driveway to indicate to the driver how many meals are needed, wait for a staff member to exit the bus.
ii Staff members will place the meals at the end of the driveway and return to the bus. Once staff members are on the bus, we ask that the student/family member proceed to the end of the driveway to get the meals.

3.) Group Stops: If your child normally gets on the bus at a group stop, that is where they will receive their meals as well. Unfortunately, this is not ideal, but because buses cannot maneuver through some of our narrower streets and areas, this is the option we have to use.

a.) “Social Distancing”: In order to follow the directives from the Ohio Dept. of Health, students at a group stop are asked to have at least 6 feet of space between one another.
This will limit possible exposure. Once the meals have been delivered, students need to proceed directly back to their home, and not visit with friends.

4.) Car Riders and Drivers: If your child is a car rider and/or drives to school and would like to receive meal service, we ask that you contact your child’s school and let the office staff know. Additionally, these students need to be outside waiting, as our bus drivers are not accustomed to these stops. If the bus misses your child’s stop, instruct your child to call the school. We will use the bus radio to communicate between buses and buildings to assist with any missed homes.

5.) We are Spartan Strong!: Our goal is to feed every child in our district who needs or wants a meal. If we miss your child (or deliver a meal when you said you did not want one), please call the district office (740-389-4479) and we will make every effort to correct the mistake. We ask for your patience as we try to provide this service to our students and families.

Extracurricular / Athletics / Trips / After School Events: 

·      Practices will take place Friday, March 13th.  
·      There will be NO practices, games, or events from March 14th – April 5th.
·      Campus is closed to all events from Saturday, March 14, 2020 to Sunday, April 5, 2020.
·      The musical is postponed.  We are currently working with the Palace to confirm potential dates.  If you have purchased your tickets, you will be able to use your current ticket for the rescheduled dates. Please keep your ticket in a safe place and stay tuned for further information.
·      The New York City trip for band and choir has been postponed.  Families will be receiving an email from the Travel Agency detailing next steps.  It is vital that in the plethora of information being distributed, families follow the Travel Agency's timelines and procedures. 


Thank you for your cooperation and continued support.  This situation is fluid and changing rapidly.  This is a wonderful opportunity for our district to model and live out our Core Values.  We are a Spartan Strong Community who sees the world with optimism and brings out the best in others through our own actions.  Challenge yourself and your family to be the example for others to follow!

Coronavirus -- Musical Rescheduled
