ENGLEWOOD — Northmont City Schools will delay the beginning of the school year until Sept. 1 and all students will be learning remotely.
District officials announced that decision Monday evening and said it was in reaction to the recommendation from Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County and the governor’s Level 3 indicator for the county, district officials said via social media.
“In the meantime, We will expand our ability to implement robust remote learning options with more staff training,” district officials said.
District officials said they are making the announcement now to give working families time to make arrangements for students being home during the day.
“This was an extremely difficult decision because we know the strain this puts on our families, but the district must ask families to make arrangements for remote learning for the first quarter (Sept. 1- Oct. 21).
“We know this is a burden to many families, but please respect this difficult decision as we look to keep our community as safe as possible in these difficult times,” district officials said.
