Loveland City School District welcomed our staff back this week to prepare for our students to return on Monday, August 31. Staff received in-depth health and safety training from the district nurses and had the option of several virtual learning sessions. Staff joined sessions such as “Building Community in a Remote Environment” and “Creating Videos That Teach Not Tell” as part of their required professional learning.

Early in August, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center held a forum for area educators and shared valuable information to support the safe return to school.

“Cincinnati Children’s Hospital has been supportive in reaching out to share their knowledge and expertise with K-12 schools. We are very fortunate to have them locally and available to answer our questions,” said Loveland Superintendent Dr. Amy Crouse. “While the forum was geared to educators, it a valuable resource for parents. Their medical staff put educators at ease about returning to school and I think our parents can benefit as well from this resource.”
