UPDATED VACCINE INFORMATION

January 27, 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian:

For the past several weeks school superintendents throughout Wood County have been working side by side with the Wood County Health Department to coordinate the administration of Covid-19 vaccines to our approximately 3,000 adults working in our schools.

While the actual date remains unknown at this time, we do know that school employees will receive their first dosage on a Friday in February. Our target date is February 12, 2021 and Governor Dewine informed us today that schools will know by this Friday when they will be receiving their doses. Once that date is verified, we will communicate it with you. This is a different procedure than I had described to you in last week’s letter but one that will only require one day for staff to receive their vaccine as opposed to two days.

On the day employees receive the vaccine all Wood County schools will have a Virtual Learning Day. This same process will be followed either three weeks or one month after the date of the first vaccine so Wood County school employees can receive their second vaccine. When that date has been determined it will be shared with you in a very timely manner.

We continue to thank you for your patience and flexibility.

Sincerely,

Jim Witt

Superintendent
