Crestview Schools are committed to keeping our community up-to-date while we work to adapt to the developing response to COVID-19. This resource will continue to be updated as a reference resource for our students and families.
Resumption of On-Campus Instruction
As of this writing, the Stay-at-home order continues through May 1. State officials have not offered any guidance beyond that date, but have noted that this order may be extended as needed. Our staff stand prepared to continue offering the best instruction possible to our students regardless of whether that instruction occurs in-person or through distance learning.
Ohio Department of Education FAQ
ODE's COVID-19 FAQ Resource page is probably the most authoritative source on some of the state-level questions about what the rest of the year holds (testing, state report cards, etc.).
Instructional delivery online or through print materials is scheduled to begin Wednesday, March 18. Additional information on these resources will be forthcoming.
Students will receive weekly updates to those assignments with completion deadlines determined by the teacher. This allows us to continue to plan, adapt, and develop content delivery, much like we would in the traditional classroom setting.
Teachers are continuing to issue grades throughout the 4th quarter. Families are encouraged to refer to ProgressBook frequently to ensure students remain on-track.
The current Student Resources Pages on the Crestview website will be the central jumping off page for online content resources. Our teachers continue to use familiar 3rd-party resources.
The elementary Student Resources page requires a student login for Clever. Their login is their district email address and password, including the @crestviewschools.net domain name. Grades 2-3 students are accustomed to using these login credentials, but are not accustomed to typing the domain name. This resource won’t be in use for grades K and 1.
Primary Grades Resources and Paper Alternative Materials for 2-12
Print materials are provided for students in grades PreK-1st grade. Materials can be picked up at the entry of each building from 11:00-1:00 each Monday or via meal distribution points. Completed materials should be exchanged when picking up new items.
Grades 2-12 Resources
Most instruction for students in Grades 2-12 will be delivered through online resources. Many of our teachers will build upon existing tools that are already in use, while others are building new content or bringing in additional tools to support instruction.
Printed alternatives will be made available for students without sufficient access to dependable internet.
Grading and Attendance
Student progress monitoring will continue to be an important part of effective instruction. Students will be graded on assigned work throughout the building closure. Teachers will work with individuals to address specific obstacles to timely work completion, but on-time submission of work will be the primary measure of student attendance. A plan must be in place with the student’s teacher prior to unmet deadlines to avoid negative impacts.
School-issued Chromebook (Grades 2-12)
Student Chromebooks will be restricted from 11:00 PM to 6:00 AM to support parents in developing good habits for student technology use and encourage appropriate rest.
Students will be permitted to take devices home, regardless of whether they have previously paid for insurance or are in grades that have not taken devices home. A reminder that these are school-owned devices and are expected to be returned in the same condition they were issued.
Chromebook Repair and Support
Tech support needs can be first addressed with the student’s teacher, and if necessary, escalated to Tech Support by visiting support.crestviewschools.net and filling out the help form. Our staff is unable to support home internet issues, but may be able to offer some helpful tips based on prior students’ experiences over the years.
All athletic practices are cancelled and contests postponed throughout the stay-at-home order. OHSAA continues to develop contingency plans for adjusted athletics seasons as dates and restrictions on movement change.
Student athletes should consult with their coaches in regards to any independent training programs that they should be doing at home during this time away.
Please continue to keep the wellness of your family and others at high priority.
We would ask that you treat this time as normal school time in order for students to be able to complete their work and have it assessed appropriately in order for us to continue to meet curriculum requirements that have not been waived by ODE, the State, or the Federal Government.
Routines for students
Children are often most successful when a basic routine is in place for the day. This routine may include several tasks in addition to school work such as creative activities, intentional play time, expectations for household chores, time outdoors, and personally-selected reading. This structure helps children with focus and prepares them to more readily return to classes. Consider implementing routines around the use of devices as well to encourage a good balance.
We ask that all families maintain good health habits during this time of the pandemic. Please continue to eat well, get exercise, and get plenty of rest. Practice good “social distancing” as advised by health officials.
