Important Message From Superintendent Anthony G. Smith


Updated: January 22, 2021 2:28 p.m.


Dear Winton Woods Community:

As of Thursday, January 21, Hamilton County remains in purple by the Ohio Public Alert System. Therefore, Winton Woods City Schools will continue in a blended learning model (Phase III), instead of transitioning to Phase IV. At this time we will not be transitioning to Phase IV. As a reminder, full school is in-person learning. This was originally scheduled for February 9. We will send regular updates when/if we are ready to transition to Phase IV.

As a reminder, the following is the weekly schedule for blended learning:

  • In-person learning for Warrior Blue students every Monday and Tuesday
  • In-person learning for Warrior Green students every Thursday and Friday
  • Virtual learning for all students every Wednesday

It is no easy task to balance pandemic health and safety concerns with what we are responsible to do as educators to ensure all students achieve their highest potential. As we work diligently to move forward, the Hamilton County data and the vaccine roll-out will play a critical role in our decision-making. Our students and staff have done an incredible job implementing and complying with all health and safety protocols. Therefore, we are able to continue in a blended model (Phase III) while Hamilton County remains in purple status. I am pleased to announce that the CDC believes that the vaccines are showing a significant reduction in mitigating the spread of COVID-19.

As always, thank you for your continued support as we prioritize the safety of all students and staff. Please encourage your child to do their very best on all assignments, virtual and in-person. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Superintendent.  


Anthony G Smith
