March 17 Update (4:45 p.m.)
Mariemont City Schools Families,
As we continue to get guidance from national and local health officials, we have now moved the majority of our staff to work remotely. The health and safety of our staff is of the utmost importance to us and at this time we felt it was necessary to close our buildings, practice safe social distancing and continue operations remotely. All district buildings and facilities are now closed.
With that said, continuity of instruction and operations is our goal throughout this extended closure. We know this is a unique situation, but we are aiming to operate as normally as possible during this time. All school building telephone lines will be monitored during normal work hours and you can always reach a staff member via email should you need to get in touch with them.
As always, you may send in your Coronavirus and closure-specific questions by email to [email protected] or through the Coronavirus Updates webpage on the district website.
While I know this is a time of uncertainty, I have been amazed at the togetherness and cohesiveness our district has shown throughout the last couple of weeks. Extended school closure is definitely uncharted territory for us all, but I am so grateful to you all for your continued support and cooperation.
On that note, we have received many questions from community members asking how they can support families in our district who may be or will struggle financially during this time. As a strong partner of the school district, the Mariemont School Foundation has an established Angel Fund; we use the angel fund to support our students and families in times of need – and we know there is certainly a need now for many of our families. If you would like to help, please consider contributing to the Mariemont School Foundation’s Angel Fund. You can do this by visiting our Coronavirus Updates webpage and clicking on the angel fund donation link.
Again, I am just so thankful for our wonderful community, and its compassion and willingness to help each other in times of need. We will absolutely get through this together and there are certainly brighter days on the horizon.
Mariemont City Schools Superintendent
