A message about Coronavirus (COVID-19) from Ohio Schools Council
These are extremely difficult times for you, your staff, students and families. As we all navigate these uncharted waters, the Ohio Schools Council is intent on continuing to provide you support in any manner possible. While we will be following the Governor’s request that staff work remotely as much as possible, we will be totally available to you. Toward that end, we will be monitoring emails and office voicemail as normal. Beyond this, we have included mobile phone numbers of all of our staff, so that you can immediately reach anyone of us by phone or text in a crisis situation.

Governor DeWine has shown tremendous leadership and his team has been very forward thinking in its response to COVID-19. And while closing schools was a difficult but prudent and necessary step, we know that it creates a tremendous hardship on students and families, especially those who rely heavily on the breakfast/lunch program. In this regard, we have sent a message to your Food Service Staff, informing them of actions that they need to take to continue to receive deliveries from some Food Service Vendors.

We are continuing to move forward with all of our programs that are currently in process, including Bus Bids, Food Bids, Rebate Programs, Utility Monitoring, etc. And we will be available to your Operations Staff, should they need assistance in obtaining any necessary supplies and services. As a state-wide co-op we provide many products and services to our schools, but we’re also proud to be your district’s voice of guidance, source of expertise, and even simply that shoulder to lean on should you need it.

So, please do not hesitate to contact us if there’s anything we can do to help lighten the burden on your district. Our mobile numbers are listed below.

Thank you for your continued support of the Ohio Schools Council.
