Welcome to the OHLSD Reopening Site, the Oak Hills Local School District’s clearinghouse for information on the reopening of schools. Our goal is to provide concise, constantly updated information on our approach to returning to school, ways to help keep your children healthy, state and local guidance, and answers to your questions.

While the Ohio Department of Health encourages but does not require Ohio school districts to report numbers of positive cases and students and staff in quarantine, we believe sharing these numbers each week is a transparent way to help us all track the movement of the virus and better manage our response.
No school district can control community spread of the virus, but we will continue to do all we can to keep our students and staff safe at school. On that note, we cannot overstate the importance of doing daily wellness checks at home before coming to school, using the information above.
Thank you for all you are doing to stay safe and help keep others safe.
Oak Hills Local Schools plan for reopening schools includes three instructional models -- full, in-person instruction; a fully remote learning option; and a blended learning option -- that will be used in accordance with the Ohio Public Health Advisory System , along with data generated specifically for the Oak Hills community.
Low levels of risk from COVID-19 mean the district will use in-person instruction with rigorous health and cleaning requirements. Higher levels of risk mean the district moves to a blended learning model in which students are in school two days per week and take part in remote learning three days per week. The highest level of risk means all students and staff will move to fully remote learning. Meanwhile, any family can sign up for the Oak Hills Virtual Academy and participate in fully remote learning.
Unless we are under the Purple Alert Level, our plan is to start school with a staggered start (September 3rd - September 4th) to assist students with the transition back to school. Parents will soon receive more information on the staggered start.
