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.
“Thirty additional learning sessions, all facilitated by Loveland’s own teachers, were offered for staff members,” said Andrea Conner, Loveland Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning. “Additional learning options will be offered next week with time allotted for teachers to pace curriculum throughout the first quarter.”
Amy Bentley, 6th Grade Science/ELA shared, “We’ve been working hard this week behind the scenes. In addition to health and safety and technology training, we have had the ability to collaborate with our team of teachers who are teaching both online and in-person. We are so excited to welcome students back.”
Keeping Our Tigers Healthy
Our health services team has been working all summer developing the health and safety protocols for the 2020-2021 school year. In the video below, Loveland’s District Nurse Judy Leamy covers the new health protocols in place for this school year.
We also have posted detailed health protocols on our website at the following link:
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.”
