Preble Shawnee Families,

Governor DeWine extended the closure of all Ohio schools to May 1st. All buildings and facilities will remain closed and no activities will take place. We will continue to provide Remote Learning Assignments through online (Class Dojo, Remind, Google Classroom, etc.) or by paper packets for the month of April. 


Report Cards for the 3rd quarter grading period will be mailed home to families the end of next week. Grades can be accessed at any time through ProgressBook.


The spring sports season is still up in the air. I know the goal is to salvage something for our students. We are hopeful something can happen. We still plan on providing the other springtime events that our students and staff look forward to such as prom, concerts, banquets, and graduation. We will communicate those plans as they are made. Regarding graduation, there will soon be a communication from Preble Shawnee High School regarding whether students are “on track” or if they need to do specific things to meet the expectation. In fairness, those seniors who are in the position of being “at risk” of not graduating should be well aware of their position prior to this closure. Know that we will work together to provide assistance and flexibility in the interest of doing what is right for students.


We will continue to provide breakfast and lunches on Wednesday’s throughout the closure. As of this communication, the pickup time will be between 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Jr/Sr High School ONLY. Please drive to the rear of the building along the curb and stop near the courtyard with the steps leading to the second floor. Remain in your vehicle to limit exposure and we will bring the items to you. 


As per legislation passed by the Ohio House and Senate and signed by the Governor, there will be no testing for the spring.


Our mental health professionals are reaching out to families to ensure they have open lines of communication during the closure and to make alternative plans if necessary. Our mental health counselors will be monitoring emails and reaching out to our school families in need. Teletherapy and in-person sessions will be an option for meeting with your school-based therapist. To reach your school mental health provider, you can email the provider directly through website. Find your provider on the “Our Team” page and click on her name to email directly. You can also call Gebhart Counseling at (937) 456-2805 to leave your provider a message. If a student or parent is in crisis, you can reach out to the following local hotlines for assistance: Preble County Crisis Hotline (866) 532-3097 or Crisis Textline #4HOPE to 741741

Please go to for the latest information.

Proud To Be An Arrow!

Dr. Matt Bishop, Superintendent
