CIRCLEVILLE – On Thursday, March 12th Circleville City Schools announced that it will be closed effective March 13th-April 5th in accordance with Governor Mike DeWine’s proclamation for K-12 public schools in the wake of the COVIDA-19 Coronavirus.
With the situation still very fluid, the district will continue to work closely with the Pickaway County General Health District, Pickaway County EMA, the Ohio Department of Health, and other government officials here locally with providing our students and families with updates on COVID-19 as safety and precautions continue to be released on a near daily basis. All school activities, including athletics, will be canceled on campus during this time.
Regarding currculum, Students in grades PK-8 will have remote learning links available for skill practice in core subject areas. All 9-12 Circleville High School students will continue to receive coursework and skill practice through Google Classroom. All staff will be available through their usual communications pathways electronically via email (found in the staff directory page), Remind, or Class Dojo from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to assist you or answer questions.

It is important to note that all remote learning opportunities are NOT blizzard bags as other districts are doing, however, in the event the state communicates that schools must provide mandatory and scored online instruction, our students should operate under the assumption that we may be given that directive by the Ohio Department of Education.
Starting Monday, March 16th the district will launch our “Grab-n-go” lunch program for any student at the Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center-Circleville Campus located at 424 E. Mound Street, Circleville between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. This program will be available all 5-days throughout the next three weeks. Students must be on site to receive their lunch due to state regulations – families will not be permitted to pick up lunches to take back to students who are not present for the program.
We would like to thank all of our families, students, and staff for their patience and extended efforts in preparation in leading up to today’s order from Governor DeWine and state officials.
As you aware this is still an ever evolving situation and state and federal mandates may change. Thus, we encourage you to stay connected with us on CirclevilleCitySchools.org, district social media feeds, and the official Circleville City Schools app for up to the minute updates and information.
