HERE'S THE HYBRID SCHEDULE FOR NOVEMBER & DECEMBER

Special days – Election Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving – have created the need to slightly alter part of the hybrid schedule over the next two months. As a reminder, the hybrid schedule remains in effect as long as Muskingum County is designated as "red," or Level 3, in the state's Public Health Emergency System.

DISTRICT USING HYBRID SCHEDULE PLAN

On October 1st, Muskingum County was categorized as “Red,” or Level 3, in the Ohio Public Health Advisory System. That category was reaffirmed on October 8th. Therefore, Zanesville City Schools will remain on its hybrid schedule plan for in-person students.
Beginning Monday, these students will attend under their designated groups. Group A will only attend in person on Monday and Tuesday, and Group B will only attend in person on Wednesday and Thursday. All other days are remote learning for all in-person students.
Preschool will remain on its alternate day schedule.
Building principals will send out their own OneCall messages with specific instructions. Any attendance questions should be directed to the school principal. Buses will run on their regular schedules.
This hybrid schedule for in-person students will remain in effect until further notice. Also, we will work to assure that students from the same family will be on the same hybrid schedule.

LOCAL AGENCIES AIDING ONLINE LEARNERS

We are thrilled that the following NINE local agencies are partnering with us to help bridge the connectivity gap to help our remote learners this year. Check out this flyer for program information. Be sure to contact the site you wish to attend to learn when they will be open to help. Click the photo at right to view the flyer.

PARTICIPATION WAIVER FORMS

Due to COVID-19, the following waiver forms are required for use by both student participants and staff / volunteers. Both forms are PDFs and can be filled out on-screen. Please complete the form, print it, and then sign it before turning it in. Athletics forms should be turned in to the Athletics Department, and forms for non-athletics activities should be submitted to the respective building principal.
