Responsible Reopening

Welcome to the Toledo Public Schools Responsible Reopening Page. Here, you will be able to find all necessary information related to the 2020-2021 school year.

Toledo Public Schools has announced that, starting the week of February 22, it will be in Yellow Light status (meaning students will be on a hybrid schedule of in-person and remote learning). The district had been in Red Light status (fully remote learning) since mid-November.


A red light indicates the most severe conditions are present and Toledo Public Schools is we operating with only the virtual learning option. Students will have access to all TPS learning resources and will be provided a device and reliable Wi-Fi, as needed. State licensed and credentialed educators will teach live each day.

Students can pick up free breakfast and lunch meals from their assigned school for the week.


A yellow light status means that the virtual option is available, but physical attendance in a school will be on an A/B schedule. Students will either attend in-person classes on Monday and Thursday (Group A), or Tuesday and Friday (Group B), with Wednesday being an at-home online learning day.

Students will have assignments and online learning to complete on their off days. There will be an attempt to keep families on the same schedule for ease of attendance. Meal service will continue, with students taking home lunch and breakfast for their non-attendance days. All students in grades 3-12 will receive a Chromebook for their schoolwork. Elementary students will receive art, music and physical education on a trimester basis.


A green light status indicates school is in full session as it has been in previous years. The virtual learning option will remain in place for those who wish to utilize it.
