LOVELAND, OH (June 23, 2020) — Loveland City School District sent out a survey for parents of Loveland students late last week outlining three different return to school models for the upcoming school year.

The survey did not require a final commitment from parents to choose a return to school option for their children. It is important to note no final return to school plan has been decided, or approved. Parents will not need to commit to any particular option until August.

 Crouse has provided updates to planning for next school year in continued communication with parents and the Loveland community, but has been clear they await final guidelines from Governor DeWine and the State of Ohio. Governor DeWine is expected to release guidelines for Ohio schools by the end of this week. Loveland Schools report to Hamilton County Public Health which has expressed its intent to follow the guidelines released by the Governor.

For now, LCSD is asking parents who have not already done so, to complete the parent survey today. You can click here to access the survey online.

Tonight the LCSD Board of Education will meet at 6 p.m. virtually per HB197. The link for the meeting will be available in advance of the meeting on the district’s website  Return to school models is among items the board will discuss during the meeting. They’ll also discuss school transportation and vote on approval for student participation fees for athletics and fine arts.  

Here are the three return to school models currently being presented by Loveland Schools. These models are subject to change pending final guidelines set forth by Governor DeWine and the State of Ohio and Hamilton County Public Health:
