Dear East Holmes Parents,
In an effort to provide additional details and guidance regarding the start of the school year, we ask that you please review this letter and the enclosed “COVID-19 Restart and Reset Guide”. These current plans are consistent with our previous communication that East Holmes will return to school in the traditional 5 days a week format, with new hygiene and cleaning procedures and routines in place. This Guide was approved by the Board of Education on 7/31/2020, but is subject to change as new guidelines and mandates are released.
To make the start of the school year successful and safe we will need your help! Specifically, we need your help by daily taking your child’s temperature and paying close attention for any symptoms. If your child has a temperature above 100.3 or is experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, please keep them at home.
I also want to draw your attention to a change to the beginning of the school year. The first day of school for students is now Thursday,
August 20th and the first 5 days of the school year will be 2-hour Early Release days (Aug. 20, 21, 24, 25, 26). This is done in an effort to give staff additional time to prepare and adapt to new procedures.
This letter and Restart Guide are also available on our district website at www.eastholmes.org and will be updated there as changes are made.
If you have any questions, please contact the Central Office at 330-893-2610.
We will continue to keep you informed should the plan and guidelines change. I speak for the entire East Holmes staff when I say that we are looking forward to seeing students return on August 20th!
Erik H. Beun
