COVID-19 Resources

The Ohio Department of Health has established a Call Center, staffed by licensed nurses and infectious disease experts to answer questions regarding coronavirus every day, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Call 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).

These simple preventative measures are known to minimize the spread of communicable diseases. Health authorities indicate that the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are the same recommendations for preventing the spread of the flu virus. The following steps that are proven successful in preventing the spread of the flu and the common cold, can also help prevent COVID-19, including:

  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick
  • Staying home if you are sick and contact your healthcare provider

Food and Meals


The Fairview Park City School District is providing meals during the extended school closure for families who rely on free or reduced-cost meals for their children. 

We will continue to offer no-cost, grab-and-go meals (each student will receive 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches) each week. 

Upcoming Pick-ups:

Monday, June 8 (last pick-up before summer break)

Pick-up is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on those days, located in the back parking lot at Gilles-Sweet Elementary.

Fill out the form on our food services page so our staff can accurately estimate how many meals to prepare. If you previously filled out a form for meals, please fill out this new version for the new pickup schedule.

Please contact Diana Hill, Food Service Director, at [email protected] or call (440) 365-3525 x4120 if:

– You are unable to pick-up meals and would like to request delivery
– You recently had a change in income and would like to apply for meal benefits

– You need to confirm if you qualify for free or reduced-cost meal benefits

– You need help applying for meal benefits

– You have any other questions related to food resources.


Thank you!

Home-Based Learning Resources

Teachers are using many learning tools during this extended school closure. Students in Pre-K through 5th grade can find communications and lessons from teachers on Seesaw, in addition to many pre-loaded Apps. Elementary Grade-Level Resources can be found on the Gilles-Sweet homepage.

Students in grades 6-12 can find communications via the Summit Learning platform, Google Classroom, or individual teacher blogs.

We are in the process of compiling a comprehensive, vetted list of additional educational resources for our students and families. If you need additional resources in the meantime, please contact your child’s teacher directly.

Family and Community Resources

We have many resources on the Family and Community Engagement Resource and School Counseling pages, including mental health resources.

Your children may have questions or concerns about COVID-19 and how it is transmitted.  There has been a LOT of misinformation and rumors being shared via social media between kids.  Please review and encourage these credible and reliable resources and discourage the sharing of misinformation.

As we all settle into this new routine, we encourage families with children of all ages to follow the guidance and resources provided by their child’s teacher(s).

You may find it helpful, if you do not already have a dedicated study or work space at home to create one. Since many children thrive on a routine, write down a daily routine and post it in a visible place in your home. We have created this printable daily schedule template for you to fill out and use if you would like.
