Area school districts on in-person learning and blended learning as Hamilton and Clermont counties move to “red”

Deer Park: Return to Full-Time Instruction Update

Statement from Supt Jay Phillips explaining the return to full-time learning as the Hamilton County alert level has moved to “red” or level 3.

“I know that having school during a pandemic isn’t easy and having students return to full-time, 5 day per week instruction on Monday can cause some angst and worry. However, I continue to believe that all of the data, including both Hamilton County data as well as empirical data from surrounding school districts, supports the decision to bring our students back full-time.”

On Clermont County moving to alert level 3 (red)…

“This week Clermont County went into the red category on Ohio’s Public Health Advisory System due to an increase in outpatient care visits and emergency department visits. This does not affect our school district at this time. In-Person schooling will continue. Health Commissioner Julieann Nesbit has indicated that there are a small number of outbreaks, the majority of which are in long term care facilities. She does not believe it warrants any change in practices.”
