COVID19 Reporting

Tri-Village Families,


The district is committed to the safety and health of our students and staff.  As required by the Director of Health of the State of Ohio, the district will implement a notification/communications plan in order to communicate in a timely manner.  The following guidelines will be in place for Tri-Village Families:


Reporting a Case:  To report COVID-19 case, please contact Jodi Fritz, School Nurse at 937-996-1511.   Mrs. Fritz will serve as the district’s COVID-19 coordinator and will assist families with the process.  


Notification of a Positive Test:  Written notification of a positive test or case shall be sent to the parents/guardians of all students who share a classroom space or have participated in a school activity during the COVID-19 infectious period. The district will share as much information as possible without disclosing health information.  

  • A one call will be made to the class/grade/team indicating a letter is being sent home with the students.

  • School wide notification will be made using the district website. The website will be updated each time a new case has been confirmed.

Report to the Health Department: Each time a case is confirmed the district will work with the Darke County Health Department to contact anyone identified as a close contact.  The Health Department will notify all close contacts as part of the COVID-19 contract tracing protocol.


Instruction and Missed Days: For days missed due to COVID-19 positive tests (both symptomatic and asymptomatic) and or the purpose of quarantining due to close contact, the district will provide options for students to stay engaged in learning.  Parents should contact the building principal to request access to class (Google Meets) and/or work.  Students who are unable to participate will be provided time to make up assignments per the student handbook rules for absences.  

Disinfecting: Additional cleaning and disinfecting of any exposed classrooms/locations will be completed prior to students returning the next day.  


The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Thank you for your continued patience, positivity and understanding.

Athletic Plan Update
Community, Parents, Athletes, & Staff,

Governor DeWine announced an order that allows Ohio schools to move forward with all fall sports.    In that order, is a wide assortment of safety protocols and attendance restrictions that all schools must follow.    The purpose of this communication is to inform you of the policies and procedures we will be instituting at our athletic events.  We will be the first to say this is not perfect and changes are possible moving forward as we embark on this Fall sports season. The Athletic Department is asking that you are flexible and respectful of these guidelines.   Most of the following has been mandated by this most recent state order.  

The Athletic Department will not be selling any passes this season.  Home passes, sponsor passes, and league passes will not be accepted.   Lifetime passes will be accepted if that individual is on an athlete’s ticket allotment reservation.  General admission tickets will only be sold in the event ticket allotments are not completely sold out.
Pre-Event Self Symptom Assessment
All players, spectators, and event staff should conduct a self – symptom check before attending any athletic event.  Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms as listed by the CDC should stay home.
Tickets / Allotments
The Governor’s order has put restrictions on attendance at sporting venues.  This will fluctuate depending on where our athletes are competing along with ticket demand.  The order has put a limit on the number of spectators based on the maximum capacity of the schools’ venue.   As you can imagine this has created some difficult decisions for schools to make.   Our goal is to make sure we take care of our athletes/participants’ families.   Coaches will communicate with their teams in advance of contests to notify family on the allotment of tickets for that event.  Again the number of spectators allowed is dependent on the venue where the event is being held.   Tickets for our home events will be pre-sold during school business hours.   Each participant is expected to purchase his or her allotment of tickets before the deadline for each game or those tickets will become available for general admission.  The ticket purchasing procedure for away events will be communicated in the days leading up to the event.  
Social distancing must be maintained throughout the event. Families should sit together and maintain a minimum of 6ft from other individuals.  Families must sit together.  Unfortunately, with restrictions being so tight there will not be a student section this fall.  Equally, the band will be moved to the end zone to facilitate the demands of social distancing.
Facial Coverings
Per the Governor’s order you are required to wear a facial covering when attending a sporting event.   
Avoid congregating before, during, and after the games.  We ask that parents please meet their student athletes outside the stadium or school facility.  Spectators should leave the facility immediately after competition ends.
Starting this week all tickets for Home games will need to be purchased during school hours by the players for their families.
We anticipate the following guidelines for our Home games:
Football players (3) tickets per player
Band members (3) tickets per player
Cheer members (3) tickets per player
Volleyball players (6) tickets per player
JH VB  players   (6) tickets per player
JH Cheer (6) tickets per player
JH FB  (6) tickets per player
The away venues will change on a case by case basis.   
Tri-Village Fall Athletic Plans:

-Coaches/Advisors will relay ticket info to all players/families for home and away events
-Lifetime passes will be accepted if you are on a player’s ticket allotment reservation for home events (student must present the pass when purchasing the pre-sale ticket)
-General admission sales will only be permitted if ticket allotments are not completely sold out
-All in attendance must wear a facial covering
-All in attendance must follow social distancing guidelines

** Doors/Gates for all events will open 1 hour prior to the start time.  Please plan accordingly.
August 19 Update
August 19 Update 
County Superintendents met yesterday (August 18) along with the Darke County Health Department to discuss the usage of face shields. As a result, face shields can be used when wearing a facial covering would prohibit participation in normal classroom activities such as reading, phonics, foreign language and playing an instrument.  
Masks will be required in congregate areas when social distancing cannot be achieved (Classrooms, Hallways, Class Changes, Arrival/Dismissal, Cafeteria Line and on the Bus). 
Masks are not required in PE or at recess as long as there is activity.

Tri-Village Families,

I hope this communication finds you doing well and enjoying the summer weather.  We can all agree, it continues to be a unique and unpredictable year but at least the July sunshine is giving us a taste of normalcy. 

The District Leadership Team met on multiple occasions throughout the summer months monitoring the guidance and recommendations being delivered while participating in discussions with the Darke County Health Department, the Ohio Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, collaborating with other school districts in the county and throughout the state of Ohio.  The plan released today is subject to revision as health circumstances change in the state of Ohio, in Darke County and in the Tri-Village Community.  The District reopening plan continues to be re-evaluated based on evolving conditions, recommendations from our public health authorities and orders declared by our Governor. 

Feedback from the entities listed above was used to determine the best plan for our students and staff safe return to school.  At this time, the Tri-Village Local School District will open with in-person instruction five days a week beginning on Tuesday, September 8. The start date for the 2020-2021 School Year was changed due to the most recent recommendation from the Darke County Health Department.

 Tri-Village Local Schools does plan to offer a remote learning option however, a meeting with the appropriate building administrator to discuss and streamline this option must occur prior to August 14. 

Copies of the revised 2020-2021 School Calendar, a Reopening Quick Guide and the Full Reopening Plan are attached. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding, see you soon, it’s always great to be a Patriot! 

Josh Sagester, Superintendent

New & Returning Student Registration

New & Returning Student Registration
      We are very excited to announce that the Tri-Village Local Schools has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service that will be replacing paper forms. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign enrollment, back-to-school and athletic participation forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.

      You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.

       We are asking that ALL parents of students use FinalForms.  You can use your home computer or a smart phone to sign your students up.  If you do not have a home computer or smart phone, we are working with the New Madison Public Library and we will have an evening where you can come to the school to register your kids into FinalForms.  Those dates are to be determined.   

       IMPORTANT: You will receive an account confirmation email from FinalForms. If you don’t please contact the school for a link and follow the steps to login and access your student(s) accordingly.

      Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes at Tri-Village Local Schools.

      If you do not receive an email from FinalForms by June 15, 2020, please call Mrs. Francis at 937-996-6261, extension 1218 and give her your email address.  You could also email [email protected], please be sure to include your students names.  Once you have received your email, please click on the Parent Playbook (located on the back) to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, please do not hesitate to call the school.

We Miss You
