Orange Schools set for possible return to in-person learning; decision expected soon

PEPPER PIKE, Ohio — The Orange City School District continues to prepare for a possible return to in-person learning — via a hybrid model — on Oct. 19, Superintendent Lynn Campbell told the Orange Board of Education Tuesday (Sept. 29).

In a Sept. 23 email to Orange Schools families, Campbell said that if COVID-19 data trends continue in Cuyahoga County — per the county Board of Health’s guidelines — the district is on track to implement its hybrid model on Oct. 19.

The decision is expected to be made after updated data from the county is released on Thursday (Oct. 1). If the county’s status has not elevated to red (Level 3) or purple (Level 4) on the Ohio Public Health Advisory Alert System, parents would likely be notified by Monday (Oct. 5) of the return to in-person learning, Campbell said.

Cuyahoga County has been at Level 2 (orange) on

From November through June — even with the coronavirus shutdown that cut sales by 10% to 13% in the early weeks — Mississippi Lottery Corporation transferred $70.7 million in net proceeds to the state treasury.

Since then the lottery has boosted state coffers by another $18.3 million.
