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.

November 16, 2020 Dear Conneaut School Community, Following Covid-19 protocols, we want to inform you that over the weekend we have recently received information about three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in students from the Conneaut Area City Schools. One student is from Gateway, one from Conneaut High School and one from Atech. Because of the length of time the students have been out of the building, there is no educational impact on other students or staff. We want to send get well wishes to these students for a quick recovery! At Lakeshore Primary, Mrs. Kelly’s preschool class will be closed for the week. We have not received any notification from the health department of a confirmed case, but have decided to close the class as an extra safety precaution.
