  • Although Governor DeWine has not yet made an announcement regarding the continuation of the "Stay at Home" order, after his decision to keep our state's K-12 schools closed through at least May 1, we should anticipate an extension of that order well beyond April 6. As a result, we have decided that all classes will remain remote for the remainder of the spring term and all campuses will remain closed.

Today, Dr. Acton, the Director of the Ohio Department of Health issued a S"tay at Home Order." We had made earlier plans that would limit campus access to libraries and computer labs, and a few select lab courses, but effective at 11:59 p.m. on Monday March 23, all campuses will be entirely closed through April 6. We will continue to do our best to provide as much continuity as possible for our students, but all of us, with very few exceptions, will be doing that remotely. We simply must stay home."
