Reporting Guidelines Modified

Dear TPS Families,

We are starting to see a reduction in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in our community. In response to that trend, the Ohio Department of Health and the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department  (TLCDH) have revised their guidelines for responding to positive cases of COVID-19. 

Principals are now required to notify families twice a week of the number of current confirmed cases of COVID-19 in their school. This notification will be made by using the district’s mass notification system. 

The district will continue to post a weekly report that shows district-wide numbers of confirmed cases. 

Students and staff members who are directly exposed to COVID-19,  regardless of the setting (home, community, school),  will continue to be able to attend school as long as they remain symptom free.

The district is still requiring students and staff members to wear masks when at work or in the classroom or at an after school or athletic event. 

Under the direction of the county health department, TPS will assist with contact tracing for any outbreaks or clusters of COVID-19 at school.

And as a reminder, TPS and TLCHD encourage everyone to stay up-to-date with their vaccines including boosters, to wear a mask, practice social distancing, stay home if you are sick, and get tested.
