Applying the state's guidance to FHSD:

As the district has done since all school buildings closed in March, the district continues to closely follow guidance from Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Education, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and local health officials in crafting our plans for the fall. We are committed to taking every precaution possible to ensure the highest level of health and safety for our students, their families and our staff. As such, our plans will closely align with the state’s COVID-19 risk assessment guidelines. 

Changes to the learning plans will be guided by the risk assessment guidelines, but specific only to zip codes served by FHSD. In conjunction with the Hamilton County Health Department and local epidemiologists, FHSD will review risk levels in zip codes 45230, 45255 and 45244 daily to maintain the highest levels of health and safety and to determine if adjustments need to be made. 

For example, the data from July 8th, 2020 can be viewed here and would allow for the Traditional Learning Plan based on guidance from local health officials.
