Plan

Bright Local School District - Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Service Plan

In compliance with American Rescue Plan: 
Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ARP ESSER)


This plan was developed in coordination between district certified and non-certified staff, administrators, students, parents, and community agencies.


As we plan for the return to In-person instruction we must recognize the Covid-19 virus is still a threat to the safety and welfare of our staff and students. The Bright Local School District must be vigilant in our approach to ensure the safety of all our stakeholders as a result the following principles will guide our district as we move forward with the opening of schools.

  1. The Bright Local School District will implement recommended safety protocols to the highest degree possible.

  2. The Bright Local School District will work closely with the Highland County Health Department to promote health and safety in all school buildings

  3. The Bright Local School District will be transparent with all stakeholders that some level of risk will always be present when children and school district employees occupy school facilities.

Bright Elementary Virtual Option UPDATE for 2021-2022 School Year

Dear Bright Local Families,

In making plans for the 2021-2022 school year, the Bright Local School District will continue to put the health and safety of our students and staff at the forefront of our planning efforts. The Bright Local School District will work closely with our local health department to assure that we continue to follow CDC guidelines.

It is my hope that we will continue to see minimal cases of the COVID-19 virus within our schools. I believe that the best education takes place in the school setting with direct instruction from a classroom teacher who can assist students and provide remediation when necessary. Therefore, it is my intention, at this time, to return to in-person learning five days a week, for the

2021-2022 school year. We will no longer be offering our virtual PLP option at Bright Elementary School. I do want to be clear that if we see an increase in the number of positive cases within our school community then we may need to re-address my decision.

Thank you for your understanding,


Michael Bick, Superintendent
Bright Local Schools

Guidelines

Bright Local Schools - School Reopening Safety Guidelines

We are all looking forward to the re-opening of our schools.  As we plan for the opening of school, we must recognize the COVID-19 virus is still a threat to the safety and welfare of our staff and students.  We all must be vigilant in our approach to ensuring the safety of all our stakeholders as a result the following principles will guide our district as we move forward with opening our schools:  

  1. Safety protocols will be implemented at each of our buildings.

  2. We will be working closely with the Highland County Health Department in promoting safety measures in each of our buildings.

  3. Students should monitor their own temperatures and their health on a daily basis before coming to school.

  4. Our district will be transparent with all stakeholders that some level of risk will always be present when children and school district employees occupy school district facilities.

  5. We are planning to maintain our previously approved school calendars with some possible front loading of employee professional development.

  6. Reopening guidelines are subject to change due to possible updates from the Highland County Health Department and the State of Ohio. 

  7. In accordance with the Ohio Department of Health's mandate for all K-12 students to wear a mask, Bright Local Schools will require face masks for all students and staff.

  8. On Sat., Aug. 15, the Ohio Department of Health issued a news release indicating that Face Shields are no longer a substitute for Face Masks while students and staff are at school. See news release: https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/media-center/odh-news-releases/face-shields-not-appropriate-substitute-for-masks . The Administration will look to insure every student and staff member wears a face covering as they enter our buildings. We highly encourage the use of actual Face Masks and ask that the use of Face Shields occur only in those situations accepted by the Ohio Director of Health.

  9. Due to COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the State of Ohio concerning mass gatherings, Bright Local Schools will not be accommodating any “Building Use Requests” for non-school related activities until further guidance from the State.
