Hybrid Learning Schedule to Begin Monday, November 9, 2020

When Tuscarawas County moved Red on the public advisory system, we began to discuss the necessity of transitioning to our hybrid model of learning.  The increase in our community cases, student and staff quarantines, along with our staffing difficulties, is dictating a change to the hybrid plan.  We will begin with our A and B Group schedule on Monday, November 9, 2020, until further notice.  The situation will be evaluated weekly.  Click here to see the A-B Group Schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Ohio Face Covering Mandate

Will my child have to wear a face covering all day at school?
     We are doing our best to create opportunities at school that don't require a face covering.  These opportunities will be within the guidelines of our current health order.
      Students will not be required to wear masks when eating and at recess.  Also students will not have to face coverings when distanced.  We will try to offer frequent mask breaks throughout the day. We are also encouraging teachers to utilize outdoor classes when the weather is nice.
What will the school do to manage the heat and facial coverings?
     We will make every effort to make our students and staff comfortable in this new environment.   Since we are prepared for remote learning opportunities, we will have "Remote Learning Days" when the heat index is predicted to make our buildings uncomfortable for learning and facial coverings.  On those days, we will either have an early release or we will cancel in-person classes for the day.

Garaway Activity and Facility Use Update as of 6/16/20

Garaway Schools is excited to announce the next phase of our return: Athletic Skills Training.  All of our student athletes and coaches have begun skills training, including weight training, agility and conditioning.  This was authorized by Lt. Gov. Jon Husted.  Unlike other businesses, schools are still closed by the current order from the state of Ohio.  We are enthusiastic to start operations our governor and local health directors permit.  We are following NFHS, OHSAA and Tuscarawas Department of Health directions for our athletic skills sessions.  Those directions include thorough cleaning protocols.  While teams are allowed to train, tournaments, games, competitions  and scrimmages for contact sports are still prohibited. The governor's office has not yet made a decision as to when competitions will be allowed.
Beginning June 5, 2020, the Garaway Stadium is open per Tuscarawas County Health Dept. guidelines. It will be closed to the public Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7-9 a.m. or anytime there is practice or workouts.  For use of local fields and parks, please check with your respective municipality.  Anyone interested in using a Garaway field is welcome to contact our Athletic Director, [email protected], for a facility use form.
 *We will try our best to keep this updated; however, there will be times when something comes up due to weather or scheduling conflicts. Thank you for your understanding.
