General Support for Families

Green Local Schools is dedicated to providing continuity of learning during the COVID-19 outbreak. Families needing support from the district for school-based services may access contact information and other resources on this website. Thank you for your patience as we endeavor to respond as efficiently and effectively as we can.
 
I do not have internet access at my home. What can I do?
Charter will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription and at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
 
What if my child's Chromebook isn't working?
The final day of Chromebook support for the 2019-2020 school year is Tuesday, May 26, 2020. 
 
Green Local Schools is asking all students in grades 1 through 11 to keep their school-issued Chromebooks over the summer. With the uncertainty of the fall schedule at this time, keeping the Chromebooks will ensure we are prepared for all options. We will simply verify that each student has the correct device when they return in the fall. These devices do not require regular maintenance over the summer and can be safely stored on a shelf with the charger nearby. Thank you for supporting our efforts to provide a seamless technology experience for all Green Local Schools students and families during this time. 
 
What is the difference between Enrichment and Remote Learning?
Enrichment options [Link] are available to families now to continue to support learning at home. These activities are encouraged but not required and grades will not be assigned for enrichment options. Remote Learning will begin for all students on Monday, March 30. Remote Learning will be required of all students and grades will be assigned. Teachers will be communicating details about remote learning prior to March 30. 
 
How will students ask teachers questions? 
Teachers will be holding remote office hours for students via Google Meet beginning March 30 to answer student questions. Students may check their Google Classroom for a list of opportunities to conference with teachers. If the published office hours are not convenient, students may email teachers.
 
How will parents/guardians ask teachers questions? 
Parents may reach out to teachers via email. Teachers will be checking email daily during typical school day hours. Parents may request to schedule a private Google Meet conference as needed.
 
What is Google Classroom?
Green Local Schools teachers have created online classrooms for remote learning to provide instruction, distribute assignments, and send feedback to students. This will enable students to continue to interact with their peers and teachers during the extended school closures. All students in Green have Google accounts that are provided by the District.
 
What is Google Meet?
Google Meet is a video conferencing application. Two or more people can connect remotely using a computer. If a webcam is available on the computers that each participant is using, participants can see each other. If only a microphone is available, then it’s like a phone call. 

Are guidance counselors available during the extended school closure?
Yes. Counselors will be accessible through Google Meet and will have scheduled, remote office hours. If the published office hours are not convenient for your family, please email the counselor or call the counselor line for your child’s school. Please see the Building-Based Contact information for details. 
 
Mental Health Support 
Students in crisis should contact the Youth Crisis Hotline in Summit County at 330-543-7472 or Crisis Text line text 4 hope to 741741.  Stark County residents should utilize the Stark Crisis Hotline 330-452-6000.   
 
Our mental health staff will continue to work with the students on their caseloads and be accessible through Google Meet.  Please expect contact within the next several days.  They will also be updating our Mental Health Resources page.
 
Am I able to pick up emergency medications my child has left at school?
Yes. Our district nurse will make arrangements for families to pick up emergency medications left at the buildings (Epi-Pen, Diastat, Klonopin, Insulin and supplies). Please email [email protected].   
 
Can my child get a work permit during the school closure?
GHS will do its best to accommodate requests on a case-by-case basis as long as those requests are compliant with current Ohio law and do not compromise the safety of staff and students. To inquire about a work permit, please call GHS at 330-896-7575 and leave a message. Due to the state's mandatory school closure, staff members are not available on a regular basis at the building. We are monitoring phone calls remotely and responding, in most cases, within 24 hours. To access the work permit application, click here. When submitting a work permit application to the state, you must include a valid physician's certificate or sports physical.
