Due to the continued spread of COVID-19 across the region and the state of Ohio, Toledo Public Schools will continue with 100 percent remote learning (known as Red Light status) for the start of the second semester.

The district's students will continue with remote learning through the end of January 2021. District leaders will continue to monitor the cases of COVID-19 in the community and make an announcement in mid-January regarding the possibility of students returning to in-person learning in February 2021.

trict On Tuesday, January 5, food distribution will resume and be on the same schedule that was implemented in early December. Students and parents can pick up a 5-day meal pack on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at their student’s home school. If Wednesdays are inconvenient, families are asked to call the school to make other arrangements for a different day for meal pick up.

This decision is being made with one concern in mind: the health and safety of the district’s students and staff members. The announcement is being made now so students, staff members, parents and community partners have adequate time to plan and prepare for the beginning of the second semester, which starts on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.

We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday. As you prepare to celebrate, please keep in mind the guidance from local health officials:
• Wear a mask when you are in public and/or with friends
• Maintain at least six feet of distance
• Wash your hands often
• Avoid large gatherings when you can
