Important Message from Superintendent Anthony G. Smith


Update: November 13, 2020 3:02 p.m.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching and the increase of new reported COVID-19 cases in Hamilton County, Winton Woods City Schools will restructure the plan to transition to Phase IV. After conducting over 40 focus groups, listening to the hearts of many dedicated parents, staff members and stakeholders, I am clearly aware that some Thanksgiving traditions will continue. With that in mind, the entire district – students and staff - will begin in virtual status on Monday, November 30. Face-to-face operations could resume as early as Monday, December 7, if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)/Governor DeWine’s COVID-19 assessments have deemed it appropriate.

During this transition, the district will return to operate in Phase III. Students with special needs will return four days per week: Monday, December 7, Tuesday, December 8; and Thursday, December 10, and Friday, December 11. Blue students will report on Monday-Tuesday, December 7-8. Green students report on Thursday-Friday, December 10-11. We will continue to follow this schedule during the week of December 14-18. 

Our students’ safety is a top priority. Please look for updates during the winter break regarding the transition plan after the first semester at I know that these transitions have been challenging; however, safety regulations must be adhered to at all times. Thank you for your patience.


Anthony G. Smith
