The following letter was sent out to Sylvania Schools families from the district on Wednesday October 21, 2020.
Good Morning Sylvania Families,
The purpose of this communication is to inform you that due to the significant rise in recent Lucas County COVID cases, as well as an increase in positivity rate, we will delay the reopening of our Sylvania Elementary Schools.
Our threshold for switching to green is below 100 cases per 100k people. Based on the most recent data, our Lucas County numbers are 109.5/100k and we expect the reported cases to continue to rise.
As a result, we will not switch to the green plan on October 26th .
We will remain on the yellow plan. Our new target date for transitioning to green is Monday, November 9th. We will continue to monitor and evaluate the number of COVID cases and positivity rate for Lucas County based on our district metric.
We will announce no later than Thursday, November 5th if we are able to reopen on Monday, November 9th under a green model.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding
