Please read Ohio Hi-Point's information about calamity days and the expectations of students for attendance and instruction.
We have been working diligently with our local health departments, our staff, and our 14 partner districts to create the most proactive and consistent educational plan for our students. For the 2020-21 school year, Ohio Hi-Point will implement a Flexible Learning Plan.

Student health and wellness
Ohio Hi-Point Career Center wants your student to learn and be successful. School attendance is linked to learning. However, there are times when your student may be ill and should stay at home until he/she feels better or is no longer contagious to others. Below are some guidelines to help you determine when your student should stay home.
Non-COVID-19 related illness: When should my student stay home:
- Temperature above 100° by mouth (fever free for 24 hours without taking fever reducing medications before return to school)

- Shortness of breath or wheezing during normal activity
- Cough that interrupts normal activity

Ohio Hi-Point Career Center is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students and that means ensuring that every student can attend school without the fear of harassment. Bullying can happen during or after school hours. While most reported bullying incidents happen at school, a large percentage of bullying happens while going to and from school, on the bus, and even in your neighborhood.
Types of bullying:
- Physical bullying - actual harm to another individual’s body such as hitting, kicking or punching
- Verbal bullying - threats, teasing, and/or name calling
- Social or Relational bullying - gossip, rumors and intentionally leaving someone out of interactions
- Cyberbullying - repeatedly threatening, defaming, teasing or ridiculing another individual by sending harmful, threatening text or instant messages, for example, or posting derogatory comments or photos on Facebook and other social media platforms
