The school district is preparing to transition to the use of a program called Final Forms, which will allow all enrollment, emergency, and athletic forms to be completed electronically. Final Forms also has an email distribution feature, which will allow us to send out email communications to families. In order for us to use this successfully, we need to have at least one valid email address on file for each student. Please complete the form below as soon as possible. Thank you! https://forms.gle/EY8Tz5sNDFMMw87G6
Gateway and Lakeshore Schools will have classes in person as scheduled today. However, due to additional call offs of drivers, busses may be running about 15 minutes behind. We appreciate the flexibility of our transportation staff and the patience of our Spartan families.
Due to a lack of bus drivers, tomorrow, Friday October 15th, will be an at-home remote learning day for CHS and CMS students ONLY. Middle and High school students were instructed to bring their Chromebooks home with them tonight so they may log into Google classrooms by period tomorrow. Further instructions will come from the individual buildings. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our families. Atech and out of district bus routes will run as scheduled. All after school activities will take place as scheduled. Thank you
Pre-sale tickets for tomorrow night's football game will be on sale tonight from 3:30-6:00pm at the Garcia Gymnasium ticket booth at CHS, and tomorrow during lunches at CHS. Pre-sale prices are $4 for students and $6 for adults.

CHS Homecoming Queen Crowning will take place during PREGAME! Get to Joslin Field early tonight to see which of our candidates has been selected!
Happy Friday Everyone! Here are just a few reminders: 1. Tonight is Homecoming. The parade will leave the CHS parking lot at 5:45 and make its way over to Joslin Field. Good luck to our Homecoming candidates, one of whom will be crowned Queen at halftime tonight. 2. We will have two seating sections for students at the game tonight. CHS students will sit in the far right section of bleachers closest to the band. CMS students may sit in the far left section of bleachers closest to the restrooms and concession stands. We are looking forward to everyone coming out tonight to cheer on our Spartans and our alumni who will be joining our band and choir. 3. Monday is a remote learning day for students. Teachers should have communicated at home learning expectations for the day to students. There is no in person classes taking place on Monday. 4. Please remember part of our COVID protocol is that students should be assessed for illness in the morning and kept home if they are sick or exhibiting any symptoms. Please do not sent children to school if they are ill. Thank you and GO SPARTANS!
We are very proud of our Spartan Football Team and Marching Band and want our fans to enjoy Friday Night Lights from start to finish. We continue to welcome elementary and middle school students to the high school games and we want to create the best possible circumstances for their safety. However, due to recent incidents at home football games, the administration will be enforcing the following rules for students: any student through grade 8 in attendance on Friday nights must be accompanied by and/or seated with an adult. Students should not run up and down the bleachers and/or preferred seating area. If the adult is standing, then the student should be standing with the adult as well. If there is a student section from that student’s school, students may sit in that section cheering for our Spartans. No students (other than high school) should be unsupervised unless visiting the restroom or concession stand. No football games or other activities that would encourage running and throwing objects are allowed. Students are not permitted to leave the stadium and then re-enter. Any person not in compliance will be asked to leave the stadium. Please remind your children that school sporting events are school functions and student behavioral expectations are the same as school. Fighting, profanity, bullying, and harassment will not be tolerated. School discipline will be enforced for violations of the student handbook that happen at school functions. We appreciate your help with the implementation of these expectations and rules to ensure student safety while giving our fans the opportunity to completely enjoy the game. Go Spartans!
SAVE THE DATE: Monday, September 27th will be a district-wide Remote Learning Day. This will be an at home instruction day for students. Staff will be completing professional development trainings. Further information will follow regarding teaching and learning on that day.
Make sure you head over the Outdoor Learning Center this Saturday from 10-2 and check out all the fun activities and food trucks!

Here is an overview of the online program that will be offered by CACS through the Ashtabula County ESC this year: We have selected Edmentum's EdOption Academy which is a K-12 program that offers both live lessons (synchronous) and self-paced lessons (asynchronous) for students from Ohio Certified Teachers. Students enrolled in grades K-5 will receive live lessons Monday - Thursday in ELA, math, science, and social studies each week. These live lessons would range from 30-60 minutes each and combine with other asynchronous work that students complete on their own. Additionally, students in grades K-1 will also receive asynchronous instruction in health and physical education, while students in grades 2-5 will receive asynchronous instruction in art and physical education. Teachers will also have scheduled office hours to assist students with work as needed. Students enrolled in grades 6-12 will receive live lessons in ELA, math, science, and social studies two times per week. They can also be enrolled in up to three other courses depending on your school's specific course of study. They have 400 courses to choose from that should meet the needs of all school districts. Teachers will also have scheduled office hours to assist students with work as needed. Teachers for all students in grades K-12 will act as the teacher of record for the students enrolled in this program. They will also meet with students and their families two times per month to discuss progress and performance. CACS families were asked to register by July 30. We are re-opening the registration form until this Friday, August 20. Start date for classes is targeted for August 31.
