Sylvania City Schools delays plans for elementary students to return to full in-person learning

Citing the rise in COVID-19 cases in Lucas County, Sylvania City Schools officials announced that all students would remain on hybrid learning until at least Nov. 9.

SYLVANIA, Ohio — Elementary school students in the Sylvania City Schools district will not return to full in-person learning on Oct. 26 as planned.

District officials sent a letter to families this morning explaining the decision to remain on their "yellow plan" of hybrid learning. 

The letter reads, in part: "Our threshold for switching to green is below 100 cases per 100k people. Based on the most recent data, our Lucas County numbers are 109.5/100k and we expect the reported cases to continue to rise. As a result, we will not switch to the green plan on October 26th."
