UPDATE - March 31, 2020

Vantage Staff and Families,

Our students, families and staff members have worked tirelessly over the last 2 weeks to make sure valuable learning experiences are continuing during this time of school closure. As you probably already know, on Monday afternoon Governor Dewine called for all K-12 schools to remain closed through May 1st. This does not come as a surprise, and our staff and students will continue to work to get through this together. 

  • Teachers will continue with an extended learning plan that will provide some flexibility and allow students to continue their learning with online and offline at-home lessons/activities.

  • We will continue to follow the school calendar and check-in with instructors daily/complete work each day that we normally would have been in class. 

    • This work will allow us to continue following our school calendar “virtually” which in turn does not delay the end of the school year. I’m sure that is good news to many people!

  • Students were reminded to take everything they may need, home with them on Thursday night (March 12, 2020). That includes books, work packets, binders, and devices (chromebooks have been made available if a student needed to check one out from the tech department).

By now, students and staff should be in an established routine that will continue for at least the next 4 weeks. However, if issues arise where learning materials or technology is needed, the Vantage High School Administration will continue to work with families to provide access to needed items. 

As stated before, for information on school breakfast and lunches during the closure please contact your home school. They will be providing these services for Vantage students during the closure.

Upcoming school activities, field trips and school events have been postponed or canceled through May 1st. Information continues to change, and we will continue to develop plans in case further measures are warranted. We will update our staff and families as decisions are made through Text Alerts, Facebook, Twitter, and the district website. In the meantime, we are counting on everyone to be diligent, stay informed, and practice healthy habits. We will get through this by working together.
