Genoa Area Local Schools takes the health and safety of our students and community very seriously. As the United States and Ohio health officials continue to address the spread of COVID-19 infection, we are monitoring the situation in collaboration with our county and state governmental partners. Any official updates regarding Genoa Area Local Schools' response will be found on this site.
Genoa Area Kiwanis has decided to postpone our annual Easter Egg Hunt originally scheduled for early April. We are hoping that we'll be able to host the event once the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

10 Tips for Establishing Learning Routines at Home
If possible, create a quiet, simple working/reading space for your child to complete school work.
Alternate work time and play time sessions. Sitting too long can be difficult for anyone.
Include reading time!...Books, magazines, audio books, newspapers, etc.
Consider including a journal time. Any notebook will do. Kids can choose their own topic to write/draw about or a prompt can be provided. Writing down moments of gratitude is another easy topic to include each day. Save the journal and be able to look back on these memories years from now.
Include “on your own time” or “learn something new time”. Kids respond well to independent options and choices.
Include outside time or exercise time.
Include age appropriate chores.
Consider allowing kids to help with cooking.
Celebrate successes. Allow kids opportunities to earn rewards like “stay up late” or “sleep in”.
