COVID-19 Reporting
Parents are encouraged to report any positive test, or case of COVID-19, to their school by calling in to the building principal or reporting to the building when they call in their child’s absence.

Known positive COVID-19 tests will be communicated by building, on the district website, if that information is confirmed.  It will be reported by building case number only.  No identifiable information will be shared or discussed.

September 28, 2020 
The Greenville City School District has one additional active positive COVID-19 case.  We also have three recovered cases at this point.  

This leaves the district with five active cases, four at the high school and one at the K-8 building.

The local health department is aware of the additional case and will do appropriate follow up and contact tracing.

Thanks to the entire district for a great start to the 2020-2021 school year.

Everyone continues to do an outstanding job following our Greenville City School’s guidelines for dealing with the COVID-19 virus.

Updated Reset and Restart Plan

Greenville City Schools has an updated Reset and Restart plan to begin school this fall.  Our school plan along with the county plan is posted on this website.  Our plan is to educate as many students as possible in school, following safety protocols.  We will also offer a remote option for students that are health compromised or concerned about returning.  We need for everyone with a student to read the plan and then complete the survey by July 24th.  It is a brief, two minute survey and will help us plan for transportation, in school and remote learning in the fall.  Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and support.  Go Wave!
Point of Clarity to the Greenville Remote Option
The Greenville remote education option would be provided and overseen by Greenville teachers.  Students in the remote option would remain Greenville students.

Know! To Beware of the Benadryl Challenge
There’s a dangerous new TikTok game that educators and parents should know about—the Benadryl Challenge. The idea is to take as many Benadryl tablets as necessary to hallucinate or “trip out,” while of course capturing it all on one’s cellphone to then share with others. A 15-year-old Oklahoma girl died last month attempting this challenge, and three more Texas teens ended up in the hospital.

Know! Six R’s for Less Stress Homeschooling
The pandemic wreaked havoc on many families’ summer plans, and now as school starts back in session, it appears the turbulence will continue. Some schools plan to take place in-person, some plan to go virtual, some are planning for a blended version. Regardless of how it starts off, most schools have been clear that all plans are subject to change depending on COVID-19 numbers—which gives way to more uncertainty.

Uncertainty means different things for different people, as we are each faced with unique family dynamics and circumstances. However, we are all in the same boat when it comes to the concern for how these changes will impact our children’s academic success, mental health, physical well-being, and futures.

Darke County Schools' Common Re-Opening Agreements
PREF ACE: All Ohio schools closed for the remainder of the school calendar beginning on March 17, 2020, by order of the Governor and the Director of the Ohio Department of Health in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On July 2, 2020 guidelines were released. School district superintendents from each public school district in Darke County, along with the Darke County Educational Service Center, and Darke County Health Department met on July 6, 2020 to identify common practices for school re-opening in Darke County.

These general principles will guide each school district as they move forward with reopening schools throughout Darke County:

Know! July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that people who identify as a member of a minority are less likely to receive a diagnosis of and treatment for mental illness, have less access to mental health services, and often receive a poorer quality of mental health care. These factors negatively impact mental health outcomes, including the risk for suicide and depression.

Know! To Define Racial Terms for Teens
Conversations on race and racism are not necessarily easy or comfortable, but they are imperative. To have informed, constructive conversations with our children on this subject, we must first lay the foundation. We can do so by discussing some key terms with them, as shared in the previous Know! Tip. While some of the words and definitions may seem basic, it is important children (and adults) understand the differences between them. It is also necessary to catch up on some of the new, more complex terms being used, and share those with our young people as well. If you would like, take a moment now and review the previous tip, Know! To Define Racial Terms for Teens, which has a glossary of terms you’ll want to know.

The conversation certainly should not end with definitions. It is imperative to keep talking. If you’re at a loss for words, we can help. Here are some things to consider incorporating into your ongoing conversations on this topic with your children.

Know! To Define Racial Terms for Teens
Whether our youth are on social media, listening to music, or are streaming their favorite TV show, they are likely hearing highly influential musical artists, athletes, and other celebrities voicing their opinions on racism in America. A lot of terms are being used that we or our children might not be familiar with, which can cause mixed feelings and confusion. As we said in the previous tip, we, as parents and caregivers, must engage our children in ongoing conversations on this topic, and we must be their information filter, as young people may come to harmful conclusions about race and racism when it is not talked about openly and honestly. An important piece in building a foundation for constructive conversations around this subject is to first spend some time defining key terms.

Know! To Talk About George Floyd and Racism with Youth
The following Know! Parent Tip deals with the killing of George Floyd. It may be difficult for some parents to read. George’s death has affected all of us. Cultural diversity, competence, and humility is a foundational component to effective and impactful prevention services, and that mission cannot be fully realized while certain members of our communities are purposefully harmed by systems of oppression and violence that have been in place for far too long.

Know! You Are Not Alone
Summer fun for youth typically includes packed pools, backyard camping, fairs and festivals, sporting events, and lazy days spent simply hanging out—with their friends. This summer is unfortunately going to look and feel different for them and for us. Depending on where you live and the personal choices you’re making for your family, you and your children may fully be experiencing a shelter-in-place lifestyle, or you may be starting to reengage in slightly closer social interactions.

There is still a great deal of uncertainty, and differing opinions on how best to move forward, taking into account the physical and mental health wellness of ourselves, our children, and extended family members. There is no question however that our tweens and teens want and need social interaction, whether that means virtual hangouts with family and friends or getting together while staying six feet apart.

Know! To Examine YOUR COVID-19 Coping Skills
The world as we knew it has changed due to COVID-19. Even as governors talk about ending some social distancing protections, people’s physical, mental, and emotional health remain at risk. As a nation, we’ve been checking in, reaching out, and helping our families, friends, and complete strangers. The question is, have you checked in with YOURSELF? How are you feeling, and what coping strategies are you using to deal with this newfound or added anxiety, stress, and uncertainty for the future?

Some People are Coping with Alcohol

If you’re unlocking the liquor cabinet as a way to de-stress during these challenging times, you’re not alone. According to research conducted by Nielsen, alcohol sales have skyrocketed. In comparison to last year, in the week ending March 21, 2020:
U.S. alcohol sales increased 55%
Beer sales increased 42%
Wine sales increased 66%
Spirits sales such as tequila, gin, and pre-mixed cocktails increased 75%
Online alcohol sales increased 243%

How to Support Your Child’s Health and Well-Being During Ohio’s Ordered School-Building Closure
How to Support Your Child’s Social, Emotional and Behavioral Health

We know you and your child may be experiencing stress, confusion, fear or anxiety during this time. Below are some steps you can take to support your child.

Talk to Your Child about the Current Situation. Have age-appropriate conversations with your child and be sure all adults in the household are using the same language to describe what is happening. Be sure you understand the correct facts from medical and government resources. Share only developmentally appropriate facts with your child (see the links below for ideas about how to do this). Be calming to avoid cultivating anxiety or distress in your child.

Limit Exposure. Be mindful of adult conversations or media coverage about what is happening. Limit your child’s exposure to these as they could cause an increase in anxiety or distress in your child.

Know! To Reassure and Support Children During the COVID-19 Crisis
The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, a pandemic. Whether or not you believe the response to COVID-19 is proportionate, there is no doubt that children are being directly touched. Their schools are closing, their academic and extracurricular activities are being cancelled, their spring break family trips are being postponed, and restrictions are being placed on mass gatherings. They’re also seeing and hearing the vast concerns of some and outright panic of others as local and national leaders attempt to control the spread of the virus. 

Everyone is talking about coronavirus. The question is, are you talking about it with your children?

Coronavirus Update
In recent weeks, we have seen a rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 coronavirus throughout the world and the United States. With an increase in the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. and the possibility of an impact on the state of Ohio, the district would like to provide an update on how we are monitoring the situation.

The district has already seen a flu season that has impacted many students, staff members and families to date. As we do during any increased flu activity, the district takes precautionary measures to try and control the spread. Measures include regular reminders to our students to:

= Wash hands often with soap and water (at least 20 seconds).
= Cover their mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
= Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
= Stay home when sick and avoid contact with others.
= Get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals.
= Practice good health habits.
= Avoid contact with others who are sick.
= Update your child’s emergency contact numbers in our student information system.
