Principal's All Call March 27, 2020
Posted on 03/27/2020

Hello Ritzman Parents and Guardians,

This will be my last all call for a little while. I will be staying and working from home.

Before Monday, parents and guardians need to respond to their child’s classroom teacher via email, Class DoJo or Remind App. The teachers and staff want to connect with you and make sure your child can log onto their Google Classroom.

The learning packets will no longer be available as teachers are expected to begin the virtual classroom called, Google Classroom on Monday, March 30th. The classroom is not going to be a live stream where teacher and students are doing lessons together all day. There will be assignments posted daily for students to complete. They are to be fun and engaging. They are not to be overwhelming or stressful. Here are the last few reminders as we begin the next Phase of our connected learning via virtual classroom.

  1. Your child needs to join their teacher’s classrooms.
  1. Starting on Monday, March 30th, Akron Public School students may take their Chromebook to the nearest High School for troubleshooting and repairs.
  1. Please contact teachers and staff during their office hours. The hours are attached. If their name appears under a particular time, then that is when they are available.
  1. There are new resources are available on the APS main website. Go to and under COVID19 that appears on the right, click on Family & Community. On the left side, there is a menu, please explore these links for resources you may need.

5.      If you have any questions, you can always either call the main switchboard at 330-761-1661 and the operator will direct you to the department you need for assistance or email me at [email protected]


6.      We will also continue meal distribution, as a drive thru service thanks to Ms. Shelly, Jamie and Child Nutrition from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m. each Monday through Thursday while we are out of school and the office.

Finally, you are not in this alone please know, we at Ritzman are here for you and your children. This is a difficult time for all of us. Stay calm and most importantly, safe!
