Dear TPS students and parents:
Thank you to those who went to their respective school today, Monday, March 23, to pick up the current learning packets. This material is designed for students for the next two weeks.
We realize there were challenges at some locations, especially at our high schools. For those students who did not receive assignments, please email your teacher directly. He or she will be able to share the information with you - please include your principal on that email.
We appreciate everyone's patience as we continue to maneuver through the challenges presented to us due to COVID-19 and the mandatory school closures by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. Thank you.


This is a reminder for Toledo Public Schools families that they should pick up their students' learning packets (some schools call them blizzard bags) from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Monday, March 23, at their children's school.

Schools having additional times will communicate that directly with their families.

For the safety of all parents and guardians - and TPS staff members - we will be limiting the number of people entering the building at one time to no more than 10. To adhere to the 'stay at home' order that Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine issued on Sunday, March 22, all TPS buildings will close at end of business on Monday, March 23.

Please know that TPS educators and staff members will contact families through phone calls, emails and social media platforms.

Currently, all schools and essential buildings in the state are to remain closed until Monday, April 6, 2020. If that changes,  plans will be shared regarding centralized distribution of additional learning packets/blizzard bags to students.
