Governor DeWine recently issued a state of emergency and implemented a variety of strategies to reduce the spread of the disease. In order to do our part in reducing risk to our employees or clientele, we have implemented a teleworking plan. OSU Extension offices will be closed to the public until further notice. While our offices will be physically closed, we are committed to continuing to conduct our work as fully as possible. In recent years, we’ve invested in the technology needed to facilitate effective teleworking.

The USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to fill the gap when children lose access to meals when schools are closed. Most often this occurs during summer vacation. However, during school closures related to the pandemic, meals are also being made available. You have the opportunity to supplement the food you have at home with meals and snacks for your children from local schools and community organizations. In an effort to maintain social distancing, USDA has made temporary changes that allow parents or guardians to pick up meals and take them home for their children.

Ohio school building closures in response to the COVID-19 crisis have highlighted the need for authentic collaboration between school staff and parents/caregivers to facilitate the education of all of Ohio’s children. As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a close, now is the time to reflect on what we have learned about effective family-school partnerships from this time of crisis, as we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year and beyond.
