Good Afternoon Cardinal Families Although there is no intent at this time to move our students to the remote learning platform, I do feel it is prudent for our district to continue to plan and prepare should it be necessary. As a part of that planning, Felicity Schools will have a “remote learning practice day” on Tuesday, December 8th. Students in grades K-12 will stay home on December 8th and will follow the remote learning expectations that have been both posted and E-mailed. Students will return to school on Wednesday, December 9th. At that time, we will be able to assess any technology issues and work toward potential solutions. There is still work to be done between now and December 8th. We are working on a plan for iPad/Chromebook distribution in the elementary. We will be collecting information from students/families, regarding internet accessibility etc. We will be releasing our food delivery plan prior to the 8Th. It is very important that your student(s) actively participate in this practice day. Teachers and administrators will take what we learn from the practice day to improve the remote learning experience for our students. Felicity-Franklin Schools, though hopeful we won’t have to move to remote, is committed to providing a quality remote learning experience for both students and families.
Happy Monday. Please take a moment to read this week's FFMS newsletter. Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving. https://www.smore.com/f25vp

Good Afternoon, Cardinal Families. Please find the attached Remote Learning Expectations. This is only an informational document so that parents and students may know the expectations of a remote learning environment, should the district have to go remote in the future. I once again want to emphasize that, at this time, there is NO intent OR a specific future date that the district intends to move students to a remote learning environment. This is solely an informational document. This document can also be found on the district website under news. David Gibson, Superintendent https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1015076/FFLSD_EXPECTATIONS_FOR_REMOTE_LEARNING_--_PARENTS.pdf

Counselor Quote of the Day: Every single day is a good day no matter how bright or dark it is, because it always brings an opportunity to start a positive beginning in your life.
Good Afternoon Cardinal Families. You may be aware that New Richmond Schools are planning to go to a remote learning model for their students beginning Nov. 23 and will remain on that model until Dec. 7. I am also confident that you have heard of other districts moving to remote learning. At this time, Felicity Schools are remaining open for students to attend every day. Due to the uncertainty of the current virus spread, this is subject to change in a very short period of time. With this in mind, the district will be releasing a detailed remote learning plan. This plan will explain, in detail, the expectations for students, parents, and staff, should we move to a remote learning model for our students. It is my goal to have this plan to you by tomorrow (Thurs. Nov. 19). Like any plan, and certainly during these times, there will be scenarios that do not fit neatly inside it. Please know that, by working with your building principals and myself, we will solve unanticipated problems. Because remote learning is a possibility down the road, it is important that we know families are fully prepared to move to this model, if necessary. Please contact the front office of your child’s school if your family needs assistance in accessing WiFi service (hotspots). Once again, I want to emphasize that Felicity Schools are not moving to, nor is there an anticipated date, to move to a remote learning model at this time.

Next Tuesday, October 20th will be ACT Prep day at FFHS. At a young age, it is often really difficult to know what your future plans might actually be. Even if you think you know, you'll probably change your mind, or you'll need to change your mind to be successful in an ever-changing world. Doing your best on the ACT test can help you create more possibilities and find the right school or trade. To help you prepare for anything it is best that you practice first! So, FFHS is dedicating valuable time to helping you do just that. 8th & 9th Grade students will be taking the ACT Aspire test on their Chromebooks. 10th Grade will be taking the Pre-ACT (Paper Test just like the ACT, but tuned into where sophomores should be). 11th Grade will be taking a Practice ACT/the Torch Launch Test (paper) and will be participating in the Torch Prep ACT Test sessions in February, just prior to the actual ACT. OCTOBER 20th, NO SCHOOL for Class of 2020 SENIORS attending FFHS who have completed and turned in to Mrs. Baird either: 2 Job applications or 2 College applications OR 1 Job application & 1 College application

Good Afternoon Cardinal Families, I want to compliment and thank the parents, students, and staff for all you are doing to keep yourselves and everyone else safe and healthy, as well as keep our buildings open. Though we had some issues at the very start of the school year, I believe district protocols and your support in following those protocols have allowed Felicity Schools to remain open and moving forward. Of course, it is easy for us to begin to relax when things are going well. Now is the time to stay focused so that we can keep our students in school. Here are a couple of reminders: · Parents who are dropping off or picking up students, if you are out of a vehicle, please wear a mask and maintain social distancing of six feet. · Stay diligent with student health checks at home. If you have any questions or concerns, please call and we will be happy to help. · Make sure your student has a mask every day. Despite all the challenges, we have had a great start to our school year. Our students and staff are working hard, and our students are learning. All of us working together is making this possible. Please keep up the great work.

Good Afternoon Cardinal Families. In May, the district released a virtual graduation ceremony and established August 9th as a date for an in-person/public graduation ceremony. Unfortunately, due to the current concerns and restriction surrounding COVID 19, the district will not be able to have an in-person/public ceremony. Regrettably, the August 9 ceremony is canceled. I want to thank all of our seniors for what they have done for and meant to Felicity Schools. I wish them all the very best of luck in their future endeavors. Dave Gibson, Superintendent

Hello Again Cardinal Families, I’m sure the Governor’s order regarding mask requirements has added to your questions about the Return to School Plan. I shared with you that the plan was subject to change and there were additional details to be worked out.

I am working on a FAQ document with the goal of releasing it next week. Please know that even after its initial release, the FAQ document will be updated on a regular basis. I understand that many questions still exist. I assure you that I am working to get you as many answers as possible as quickly as possible. Thank you Dave Gibson

Good Morning Cardinal Families, I hope this email finds you all safe and healthy. I would like to give you a quick update on the Felicity Return to School Plan. Over the last several weeks I have been meeting regularly with all of the superintendents in Clermont County. The Clermont County health department has participated in each of those meetings. I have also met twice with the Grant superintendents. We have spent a great deal of time trying to align, as much as possible, our individual district plans. I have met with leadership from both the teacher’s association and the classified staff association. The Board of Education had a work session last Thursday, and we have surveyed both staff and parents. All of this is an attempt to create a return to school plan that has all students attend school every day in August in an environment that is as safe as we can make it. The Board of Education will vote this evening to approve the current plan. On Tuesday or Wednesday I will release the plan to the public. Please understand there are still many details that need to be figured out. However, I wanted to get you as many details as possible so you can begin planning for August. Due to the ever changing nature of the situation we are in, there is a reality that the details of the plan may change. I am asking that you keep a close eye on your email and our district information system. You will be receiving updates throughout the remainder of the summer. Thanks David R. Gibson Superintendent, Felicity-Franklin Local Schools (513)876-2113 Ext. 1
The regular July Board of Education meeting will begin at 6:00 pm this evening, beginning with the Superintendent & Treasurer's evaluation, followed immediately by the regular business of the board. The meeting will be held in the High School Wifi Cafe.
