Ohio students to finish year remotely

DGKN staff report

For the remainder of the school year, students will continue to go to school remotely, Gov. Mike DeWine announced during his press conference Monday.

“I want to take a moment to thank all of our teachers and school administrators and support staff, such as our kitchen staff, bus drivers, and maintenance workers,” DeWine stated via Twitter. “You are all our heroes. I want to thank all of the parents as well.

“Why are we keeping schools closed? We’ve flattened the curve, but the virus remains. Also, to go back to school now with a relatively small amount of time left – many educators have expressed to me that this wouldn’t be a good idea even if the health situation was resolved.”

“There is the possibility that we will have a blended system this fall — some distance learning as well as some in-person learning. That’s just a possibility and each school district is different.”
