I hope that this message finds you and your family in good health and enjoying the summer weather and activities. I am looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school with in person learning in a few short weeks. Last year was very challenging for everyone. We are all looking forward to a smoother start to this school year.
We continue to live in a time of unprecedented uncertainty. I just want to say “Thank You” to our students, faculty, and staff for your patience, understanding and perseverance during these trying times. We are currently awaiting recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health and the Butler County General Health District Commissioner as to what health protocols will be for starting the school year.
We were afforded federal dollars to use for purchasing technology and social emotional learning programs for our students. We budgeted those monies very efficiently by upgrading our technology, purchasing new Chromebooks, and Clevertouch Boards for the classrooms. We also purchased Navigate Suite 360 and Panorama for our students to address their social emotional needs. We will be partnering with Butler Behavioral Health to address and assist with any needs our students may have.
We will all persevere and our goal is to successfully navigate the beginning of the school year with the least amount of interruptions to the educational processes. Please visit our Facebook, Dojo, and district website for further information in regards to health protocols, as they become available, and resources to succeed.
Remember to use Progress Book to monitor your child's progress and to contact your child’s teachers with individual questions concerning their learning. Keep open communication between you, your child, and your child's teachers in order to attain optimal success.
To me, what makes New Miami Local Schools so incredibly special is our students and staff. All of whom are committed to supporting the needs to of our students and community.
Enjoy the rest of the summer! I look forward to seeing everyone soon. Until then, I offer my thanks and my best wishes for your health and continued success of your child at New Miami Local Schools!
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
