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

Mock Crash at Whiteoak High School - April 20, 2021

Today, a Mock Crash will take place at Whiteoak High School beginning at approximately 12 noon. Whiteoak High School along with the Southern Highland Joint Fire District, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and T & G Towing will conduct this event as a reminder to our students to drive safely, especially with our upcoming Prom.

This announcement serves as a notification for the community of today’s event to prevent confusion. The public should not mistake this event for a real crash – it is strictly a dramatization for students to educate them about the dangers of drinking and driving and distracted driving. Dispatchers will send emergency personnel to the scene of the mock crash which will be audible on law enforcement dispatch radios and rescue squad scanners.

We just wanted to make our community aware of this event.
