All Ohio schools were closed on March 16 until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. Amidst the uncertainty for things to return to normal, one thing is certain: school administrators, teachers, students, and families are staying connected and continuing to provide support to encourage learning.

In talking with administrators, teachers, students, and families affiliated with Morgan, Fort Frye and Waterford schools, two-way communication is happening via phone, U.S. mail, email, and social media to share and exchange information. In the classroom, learning relies heavily on the use of technology. This poses challenges for the region where many access the internet on their cell phones, often incurring additional monthly charges for using the data. The availability of high-speed internet has not yet fully reached Morgan County, creating slow internet service and long delays to send and receive audio and video files and large documents that are used to teach.
