Although there will not be a 2020 Monroe County Fair, the tradition of naming Junior Fair Royalty will continue.
With the Monroe County Junior Fair’s cancellation, 4-H and FFA members faced not being able to show their animals and feel like they had truly completed their projects.
The Switzerland of Ohio Local School District plans to welcome students back to school in person on Sept. 8, so long as the district stays “yellow.”
One week ago, 4-H participants were unsure of what they would be able to do with their animal projects for the canceled Monroe County Fair.
Monroe County did not stay without any active COVID-19 cases for very long as two new confirmed positive cases were reported during the weekend of Aug. 1-2.
For the first time in nearly four months, Monroe County has no active cases of COVID-19.
Before the Switzerland of Ohio schools can reopen this fall, the district must adopt a COVID-19 plan. But several portions of that plan, including the curriculum and transportation sections, cannot be finalized until the health policy is in place.
Starting at 6 p.m.
Monroe County residents will be able to get tested for COVID-19 as pop-up testing site will be in Wood
The Switzerland of Ohio Board of Education heard thoughts about a fall school reopening during a working meeting Tuesday, July 14 at Swiss Hills Career Center.
