Superintendent's Message

As we prepare to begin the 2020-21 School Year, I would like to share a few thoughts with the
Edinburgh Community Schools’ students, staff members and parents.
I wasn’t sure how this school year would begin. We have discussed in-person, virtual or
eLearning and a hybrid which includes both approaches. We surveyed parents and a majority
prefers in-person instruction. Also, all Johnson County school corporations are using in-person
instruction. Some have included virtual or eLearning options.
Because of the coronavirus or COVID-19, our administrative team, technology staff, our school
nurse, classified staff and the Edinburgh Board of School Trustees have worked together;
listening to the advice of the Indiana Department of Education and the Johnson County Health
Department to develop a plan that will allow us to provide “in person” instruction that protects
the health of all students and staff members.
For us to be able to start school on July 30, 2020 for all students, grades kindergarten through
twelfth grade, and staff members, “in person” as opposed to eLearning or virtual, there are a
few changes that we will need to make. They include:
● Students should stay home when they are ill.
● Students with a fever of 100 degrees F or greater will be sent home.
● Wearing a face mask on the school bus to prevent the need to socially distance while
riding the bus.
● Walk directly into the school building and walk directly to breakfast or to your classroom,
every morning.
● Wear a face mask while walking in the hall or when you are in close proximity to other
● Wash/disinfect your hands regularly. Avoid touching your face.
● No visitors will be permitted.
If everyone follows these simple procedures, we will be able to have a healthy and successful
school year. We know this is a scary time to many people. We want to do our best to make our
school experience as “normal” as possible.
Please remember that our plans could change if Governor Holcomb issues an Executive Order
requiring schools to move to an eLearning format or if the Johnson County Health Department
issues an order to close.
I encourage you to share any questions or concerns that you might have about opening school.
I am happy to field questions by e-mail, text, phone or in person. Together
we can have a successful 2020-21 school year.

Best Wishes,

     Dr. Doug Arnold
     Superintendent of Schools
