For now here is some preliminary information that we can share: September 1-First Student/Teacher Contact Day. Students with their parents/guardians will meet with teachers, receive Chromebooks, complete paperwork and receive initial assignments. Lakeshore and Gateway students will receive assigned times in the mail sometime next week. CMS and CHS students are to report on Sept 1 between 4 pm -7pm. September 6-First student day with bussing. Building times will be close to what they were last year and will be announced next week. Routes will be posted by Aug 20 and will be adjusted as needed. Enjoy your last 19 days of summer vacation!

Effective Tuesday, March 1, 2022, the Conneaut Area City Schools will no longer mandate that masks be worn in school buildings or on buses or vans operated by the district. This change is intended to align with the CDC’s updated guidance, which no longer recommends universal masking in K-12 settings in areas with low or medium COVID-19 community levels. Currently, Ashtabula County is at a medium level. This moves the intended date up from March 7 to tomorrow. The district supports any family who may wish for their child to still wear a mask. We recognize we may have children or families who are at risk of severe illness and we want to continue to allow for the protection of those families. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. Stay #SpartanStrong!

After participating in county and UH webinars the past two weeks, and after consultation with the Conneaut Health Department, beginning Monday, March 7th, masks will be strongly recommended and encouraged for students and staff but not mandated. It will be optional for students based on parental recommendation. The change in the mask policy is due to the current downward trends in positive cases and hospitalizations. The current mask policy will remain in effect until March 7 (13 more school days). This plan is subject to change based on current community spread and county caseload numbers. Masks are still required on transportation, per Federal requirements. The District reserves the right to require masks at events (i.e. Seussical) Students who have been exposed and vaccinated will have to wear a mask in school for 10 days regardless of parental choice, per CDC requirements (Mask to Stay). Students who are exposed and unvaccinated will have to quarantine for 5 days. Students who are not masked in school will be subject to increased quarantine and contract tracing. Lori A. Riley, Superintendent, February 11, 2022
