Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Bay Village Schools 2021-22 COVID-19 Dashboard Link

What about Masking?

      - Masking for two-week increments to allow for the use of Bay Village-specific data where possible, along with CCBH, regional health centers and CDC data models. We will monitor our district curve and compare it to the city’s, as well as surrounding communities in the two-county area. We are choosing to be proactive since it is more manageable to keep our curve flat than to have to work to flatten our curve. 

      -    Masking Required -- August 16-August 27. If a child shows up for school without a mask, we will be offering them an appropriate-sized, disposable, medical mask. 

      -    Every Friday, families will receive an email and text message alerting them about masking for the next two weeks. This decision will be made by the District Leadership Team and the School Nurse. 


What if I have questions about a possible Masking medical exemption?

  • Parents/Guardians should read this information from Director of Student Services, Mrs. Lindsey Holeman.


Why are students allowed to share materials? 

  • Scientific studies have shown that Covid 19 is primarily spread through the air. We will continue to regularly clean high touch surfaces because this is a way to prevent the spread of disease. We will also continue to promote safe hand hygiene practices including washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 


Why are we no longer using plexiglass cubbies on desks?

  • Students will no longer be eating in classrooms. Masks are an effective mitigation factor and we continue to recommend the wearing of masks in classrooms and throughout our school buildings.  We will continue to focus on maximizing fresh air circulation through open windows and setting our ventilations systems to provide the maximum amount of fresh air. 


Why must students wear masks in school buses and school transportation?

  • Currently there is a government mandate in place that requires the proper wearing of masks on all public transportation. This includes school transportation.


What about quarantining?

  • The district is following the Ohio Department of Health guidelines on quarantining for schools, as outlined in this updated ODH plan (as of August 6).


What about athletics?

  • The Ohio High School Athletic Association has specific guidelines for school sports. The district is part of the OHSAA and abides by their guidelines.
