Attention Parents/Guardians-please take a quick minute to fill out this survey before noon on Thursday April 15th: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/14I-i6DG-NwNRDQ4_DbNa75BVC93Z7ROOHgLf2Ev1hlw/edit This survey is to collect information from our parents regarding interest in having an online schooling option for students during the 2021-22 school year. As the school district begins planning for the 2021-2022 school year we would like to know if any of our parents want to have a full time online only school option for next year. Your feedback is important. This survey is not a commitment on your part! It is being given only to allow our school district to explore how many parents who are interested in this option.
After consultation with the Conneaut Health Department, the Conneaut Board of Education has determined that beginning on Tuesday, April 13th, current CMS and CHS students in groups A and B will be coming together and returning to school 4 days a week Tuesday through Friday. SOAR students will remain committed to SOAR through the remainder of the semester. We will continue to consult with Conneaut Health Commissioner Nichele Blood and monitor community spread. If numbers rise in a building or in the community, it may be necessary to switch back to hybrid. Therefore, it is important that we all remember to follow all health guidelines including wearing clean masks properly at all times and washing and sanitizing hands. Students should not be sent to school with any covid symptoms. It is important that we follow all CDC and ODH guidelines in order to stay in school 4 days a week for the remainder of the year and not have to go back to the hybrid model. Bus Routes will be posted on the website (www.cacsk12.org) once they are completed. Nothing will be mailed home so please check the website if your child needs transportation. Lunches will still be distributed to SOAR families on Mondays. Also if any in school families want a lunch for Mondays they can pick that up as well. Stay well and stay #Spartan Strong
Save the Date! Spring testing for SOAR students in grades 3-8 will be held on Mondays (April 26, May 3 and May 10). Third grade students will report to GES and students in grades 4-8 will report to CMS. The SOAR teachers will be contacting you with further details.
Just a reminder that tomorrow is a Professional Development/Records Day for staff. It is the last day of spring break for students only! We hope everyone enjoyed the time off. Last nine weeks starts on Tuesday. Finish #SpartanStrong 💙💛
Last Friday, the CDC issued new guidance regarding distancing in schools during COVID. Based on this change in guidance, the Conneaut Board of Education has determined that beginning on Tuesday, April 6th, current Gateway Elementary students in groups A and B will be coming together and returning to school 4 days a week Tuesday through Friday. Lakeshore students will remain on their current 4 day schedule. SOAR students will remain committed to SOAR through the remainder of the semester. For the week of April 6th, CMS and CHS will remain on their current two day schedule. After consultation with the health department and studying community transmission, the Board will make a determination about these two buildings possibly returning to a 4 day week beginning April 13th. Bus Routes will be posted on the website (www.cacsk12.org) once they are completed. Nothing will be mailed home so please check the website if your child needs transportation. Lunches will still be distributed on Monday, March 5th. In addition, it is important that we all remember to follow all health guidelines including wearing clean masks properly at all times and washing and sanitizing hands. Students should not be sent to school with any covid symptoms. It is important that we follow all CDC and ODH guidelines in order to stay in school 4 days a week for the remainder of the year and not have to go back to the hybrid model. Thanks and have a safe spring break!
We are aware, and have been reviewing , the new CDC guidelines that were released on Friday. Specifically, the revised physical distancing recommendations to reflect at least 3 feet between students in classrooms and provide clearer guidance when a greater distance (such as 6 feet) is recommended. We continue to partner with the Conneaut Health Department to work through CDC guidelines as well as current recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health. We anticipate making an announcement regarding the current plan by the end of the week.
1. Next Friday, March 12th will be a calamity day. There will be no in person or remote learning for students on that day. There will also be no new learning for SOAR students. This will be a catch up day for everyone as staff will be getting the second dose of the vaccine. 2. The Conneaut School Board continues to remain committed to the safety and health of our community. Therefore, in order to maintain the recommended 6 feet of social distancing in the classroom by both the CDC and the Health Department, the Board of Education has decided at this time to remain in the hybrid plan for the 4th nine weeks. 3. We have recently received information about a confirmed case of COVID-19 in a student at Conneaut High School. CHS will remain open at this time. We are working closely with the Conneaut Health Department and anyone identified as a close contact will be notified. One year later we are still balancing educating our students and keeping our community safe. There are no easy decisions. I hope and pray this all ends soon and next year we are back to normal. Until then Stay Spartan Strong! Lori A. Riley
There will be a meeting held this Friday February 26th at 3:45 at Gateway for anyone in grades 8-11 interested in Drill Team. Tryouts will be held next week!

A winter storm is on the way and the Superintendents are making the call tonight to give everyone time to prepare. Since this will be our first calamity day I am declaring tomorrow, Tuesday February 16th, to be an old-fashioned snow day. There will be no hybrid in-person or remote learning tomorrow. Students should check their Google classroom for any work they may need to catch-up on but there will be no new instruction. If you don't have any work to do I am challenging everyone to unplug the computers and spend the day doing something fun! Be safe and stay warm Spartans!
Just a reminder that CACS is closed today in honor of Presidents Day. And yes, Mrs Riley is already monitoring the weather for tomorrow 🥶❄️🌨
Conferences for Feb 11th and 12th have been cancelled. They will be rescheduled by your child's teacher for a date and time in March. Instead, Conneaut Area City School staff will be receiving their first round of the vaccine on Friday. We have been able to partner with the Conneaut Health Department and distribute the vaccine to 190 staff members on Feb 12th. Therefore, this will still be a non-student day as scheduled on the school calendar. Thanks for your continued cooperation during this COVID school year.
Please Note: Grab n Go Food will be distributed TOMORROW instead of Monday. You may pick up lunches tomorrow Friday February 5th from 10-11 am at either Conneaut High School front door or Conneuat Middle School circle. There will NOT be food distribution on Monday. We will see you at the front entrances of either Conneaut High or Middle School tomorrow.
