As we move closer to the first day of school we want to keep these important dates on your mind.
After consultation with legal counsel and review of FCPH recommendations, the Hilliard City School District will return Fall high school athletic and band programs to Phase 1 of Skills Training per Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Sector-Specific Operating Requirements on Friday, July 31, 2020. Golf and Tennis will follow the Ohio Department of Health Sector-Specific Requirements for each sport. Coaches will notify athletes about specific plans as we return to Phase 1. The Hilliard City Schools anticipates updates from the Governor’s Office, ODH, and the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) in the coming weeks. Our legal counsel will work with the district on the implementation of any changes.
Below is a letter the Hilliard City School District received at 9:59 AM this morning from Franklin County Public Health. In following the Board Resolution passed on Monday evening, Superintendent John Marschhausen is directing all athletic, band, and extracurricular activities to be suspended effective 9:00 PM tonight, Wednesday, July 29, 2020. This suspension of these activities comes as a result of the recommendations from Franklin County Public Health. Dr. Marschhausen is working with FCPH, Governor DeWine’s Office, and our legal counsel to explore returning to the Responsible Restart Plan for Skills Development for athletic and band students. This would be a return to Phase 1 for us – pods of 9 students with one coach/teacher. He will be in contact with the President of the Board of Education today and ask about having an emergency Board of Education Meeting to discuss the impact of the FCPH Recommendations.

As we enter our summer break, our students’ mental health remains a top concern. We want to be sure our students and families know there is help available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. One tool is the Safe Schools Hotline. This is a free and confidential option for our students to report threats of violence, illegal activity, or any activity they think can harm students or staff in our schools. There is a toll-free number students can call or number they can text or a web page where they can report their concerns and talk to a trained mental health counselor. 800-4-1-VOICE ext. 359 800-418-6423 ext. 359 Text TIPS to 66746
