Beavercreek students returned to in-person learning today after the district’s board last week approved a modification to the district’s coronavirus restart plan.

When Greene County went to a “red” alert level, Beavercreek Schools, per their original plan, went to a hybrid learning method. In-person students were attending school two days a week and learning remotely the days they were not in the school buildings.

Students with the last names starting with the letter “A” through “K” attended Monday and Wednesday. Students with the last names “L” through “Z” attended on Tuesday and Thursday. Students started the “blended” method on Oct. 19.

Online-only students will still be remote when students return to traditional learning on Nov. 2. The earlier change also did not affect those students.

Since the beginning of the school year, 20 students have tested positive for the coronavirus, the district said in a media release. There have been eight positive staff cases reported.

“Through contact tracing, it has been determined that the majority of positive cases were a result of activities outside of our school buildings,” the release said.

Moving forward, Beavercreek Schools will make decisions based on the spread of COVID-19 in the district and continue to consult with Greene County Public Health.
