Today the Conneaut Area City School staff, in conjunction with a variety of community safety forces, conducted a full scale school wide drill. Conducting such drills is crucial for ensuring preparedness and response effectiveness in case of emergencies. These exercises help everyone involved to practice and understand their roles, identify areas for improvement, and enhance overall safety protocols. We will debrief today's exercise and identify areas of strength and where we can improve. A very special thank you to Officer Tim Rose and Detective Taylor Cleveland for organizing this very powerful day. To our Spartan staff, parents and especially students who filled a variety of roles today my heartfelt gratitude goes out to each and every one of you for your exceptional commitment and contributions today.

Quick reminder to our Spartan families! There will be no school tomorrow as we mark the end of the second quarter. Conneaut staff will be participating in the safety drill so there will be limited staff at CMS, GES, and LPS. There will be no public access to CHS until after 2 pm. Reminder, tomorrow is Little Spartan Cheer night as our boys basketball team takes on the Jefferson Falcons at Garcia Gymnasium!

This Friday, January 26th, there will be an Emergency Response Drill at Conneaut High School from approximately 9am to approximately 2pm. School is NOT in session that day district wide, but there will be a large Police and EMS presence in the area. For your safety and to allow for the smooth execution of the drill, we kindly request that you avoid the area during the specified time. It's important to emphasize that this is solely a training exercise and not an actual emergency situation. We appreciate your collaboration in ensuring a secure learning environment for our students and staff. These safety drills are invaluable for our CASC staff and community emergency partners. Your understanding and cooperation contribute greatly to the success of these preparedness efforts. Thank you for being a valued part of our commitment to safety.

Good morning. Due to icy conditions on the untreated roads, side roads, parking lots and sidewalks, there will be no school in Conneaut today. Main roads are ok but not everyone gets to school that way. In the best interest of keeping all students and staff safe, CACS is closed.

After much thought about what the overnight is forecasted to bring and to allow families to prepare this evening, I am cancelling school for tomorrow, Friday January 19. Conneaut is under a winter storm WARNING through Saturday at 10 pm. All schools in the county have made this same decision. Stay safe and have a great weekend!

Due to morning road conditions, Conneuat Area City Schools will be folloiwng a 2 hour delay. All busses will start running 2 hours later than they normally would. For example, if your student normally gets picked up by a bus at 6:15 am, today they will get picked up at 8:15 am. Door will open at CMS at 9 am, CHS at 9:10 am, GES at 10:10 am and LPS at 11:10 am. There is no MORNING Preschool at LPS. Busses running to Atech and all other out of district places will also run two hours late. Roads were just in the process of being cleared so this gives us some extra time for safety and allows for us to get the rest of the school day in. I watched Kindergarten practice for their program so the show can go on! Happy Holidays and Stay Safe!

Last Monday, the Conneaut community lost one of its most enduring figures with the passing of former Conneaut High School Band Director, Mr. George Voytek, at the age of 83. During a Conneaut school career that spanned the late 1960’s, through the 70’s, 80’s, and well into the 1990’s, Mr. Voytek, or “Coach V”, as he was known to his students, shaped thousands of lives. Mr. Voytek possessed an ability to gently nurture, with a larger than life enthusiasm, all wrapped up in a love for music that he transferred to his students. Just as with our CHS Band of today, Mr. George Voytek’s Conneaut High School Bands were not only producers of beautiful music, but were an integral part of Conneaut High School athletics in providing a fun and lively atmosphere for all to enjoy and remember. Although Mr. Voytek is gone, his presence will always be a part of this high school and in the traditions that he helped to establish, not to mention in the creation memories carried by all of the young people who grew into adulthood and were touched by his teaching. Rest easy Coach V. …To a life well- lived Coach will be laid to rest today at St Joseph Cemetary with the CHS Band present. In lieu of flowers, “Coach” has asked that donations be made in his name to the Conneaut Music Boosters. Venmo and PayPal QR codes are included, or a check payable to “Conneaut Music Boosters” can be mailed to: PO BOX 712 Conneaut, OH 44030

The Conneaut Area City School District is aware of online threats of violence that have been made to Ohio schools yesterday that are similar to threats made in other states recently. We received a message yesterday from the Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) who is actively working with the Statewide Terrorism Analysis and Crime Center and Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as schools and local law enforcement to support their efforts in investigation of these threats. While some of the threats have been determined to be false through law enforcement investigation, the district takes all threats to schools seriously. Members of the Conneaut Police Department did a sweep of all of our buildings early this morning. If there is any time anyone would like to make a report concerning threats or concerns of safety you may do so directly to local law enforcement or through the use of the state's Safer Ohio School Tip Line. 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) The Safer Ohio School Tip Line is a free safety resource available to all Ohio schools. The tip line is an anonymous reporting system that accepts tips via call, text, webform, and mobile app 24 hours-a-day. Anyone can download the Safer Ohio School Tip Line app or use this link to access the webform. This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety — whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student. Again, the district takes every threat seriously and the safety of our students is our top priority. We very much appreciate our partnership with the Conneaut Police Department both in their quick response to communication and action.

This is just a reminder that the Stuff the Bus Battle is happening today at Wal-Mart between 10-2. You can drop off unwrapped toys, non-perishable food items or hygiene products or make a monetary donation. Each item or dollar placed on the Conneaut bus counts as a point and helps us to beat Geneva and keep the Battle of the Bus trophy in Conneaut. Please stop out and help our local veteran families this Christmas season. They deserve our support and recognition for their dedication to our freedom. And Go Spartans!

It looks like we will be extending Thanksgiving Break by an extra day today. Due to the snowy conditions, all schools will be closed in the Conneaut Area City School District. I always think the first snow day is an opportunity for parents to spend some time practicing with our first time licensed student drivers who may have not experienced winter driving yet, if and when the conditions are favorable to do so. Please stay safe and please use caution if you are out. Thank you.
