All-In Learning

The Board of Education has set the date of Monday, March 1 for a transition to all-in learning for students in the school-based pathway in all grades - K through 12.  Beginning the week of March 1, all students on the school-based pathway will attend school in person, Monday through Friday. 

We will continue to closely monitor both Upper Arlington health data as well as what’s happening in the county and around the state, and we will continue to re-evaluate based on evolving conditions, data about the status of the pandemic, and recommendations and guidance from public health authorities and the scientific community.

Health and Safety Protocols

Our schools will have several health and safety protocols in place for all-in learning, including:

  • Face masks for students and staff - no gaiters.
  • Physical distancing of 3 feet in as many classroom environments as possible. 
  • Physical distancing of 6 feet at lunch, by using spaces throughout the school with precautions for food allergies in place in all spaces. Parents/guardians who wish to have their students eat lunch at home have the option of picking up and dropping off their children.
  • Frequent hand-washing and sanitizing throughout the day and extensive cleaning after each school day 
  • Additional environmental controls such as air purifiers in larger common spaces, especially spaces where students will be eating lunch, and photohydroionization (PHI) units in HVAC systems where applicable. (You can click here for a video explaining this technology and how it is being used at COSI.) 
  • Block scheduling at the middle school and high school level to reduce classroom transitions.
  • Continued case investigation and contract tracing of every student and staff case

All-in learning meals

Elementary schools


At the elementary level, students will return to ordering lunches at school each morning, and preorders will no longer be taken at the elementary level. You can view the lunch menus by clicking here, or by downloading the "Web Menus by Isite" app. 


Middle schools

  • Jones - All students will pre-order their meals through our online ordering system and have their meal delivered to their 2nd or 6th period classroom (Group A - First Lunch) or (Group B 2nd Lunch) delivered to centralized location  6th grade (auditorium), 7th grade (wrestling gym) or 8th grade (cafe) to pick up and take back to their classrooms.

  • Hastings - 6th graders will pre-order and have it delivered to a central location (Lunch 1 and Lunch 2); 7th and 8th graders will not need to pre-order and will just come through the cafe (same menu options for all students)


High School

All students except those that are eating in the East or West Cafe will pre-order their meals and it will either be delivered to their classroom or central location (in larger lunch areas) to pick up.  Students in the East and West Cafe will just go through the line in the East cafe to get their lunch (same menu options for all students).


Online Academy meal pickup

While our school-based pathway is in all-in learning, we will continue to offer meal pick-up for students in the UA Online Academy.

Multi-day meal packs will be available for pick-up on Thursdays from 12:30 - 1:00 p.m. at Greensview, Tremont and Windermere elementary schools. (Please note that Windermere Elementary School is located in the old Wickliffe building for the current school year only.)
