With the plan being approved, practices will be allowed to start as early as this weekend. The school said the decision to play will adhere to all public health recommendations. The goal is to keep students and staff safe through the pandemic. The Trotwood Rams won the 2019 Division III high school football championship. So, there is a lot of anticipation for the players getting back on the field.

The school district announced in July that all sports and extracurricular activities would be suspended for the first nine weeks due to the impact of COVID-19.

School officials said the first nine weeks of classes will remain virtual. However, the district will continue to gather more data that will determine what the second nine weeks will look like. The district is hoping to have blended learning as the school year continues.

Students began online classes two weeks ago, but classes for special needs students will begin in-person on Tuesday, Sept. 8, where students will be in the building one day a week. School officials said based on their IEP’s, students will be contacted by their therapist to schedule weekly therapy session starting on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
