Remote Learning | December


Claymont City Schools thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this tumultuous time. The District understands the importance of students being in school, not only for academics, but also their social/emotional well-being. The current COVID situation has forced the district to make changes to our original plans. See the attached letter below for more information.

December Letter Regarding Remote Learning

Meal Pick-Up Information


Meal pick-ups will be available Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week from 11-1 at the Middle School. There is no form to fill out for meals this week.

Revision to the 2020 Reopening Plan


Attached you will find the most current revision of the 2020 Reopening Plan. As of now, Claymont City Schools intends to remain in session as normal should the Ohio Public Health Advisory color-coded system switch to a RED level.

The District will monitor the risk and will determine if a change to a different instructional format is warranted based upon the number of COVID cases and quarantines identified within our community and the impact that these cases have on our schools.

It is possible for one or multiple buildings within the District to be on remote instruction while the rest of the schools are in session as normal. As always, for updates and notifications, please stay tuned to our District website, Facebook, and the notifications sent from the Superintendent's Office.
