I know there are many families waiting to hear about the Spartan RESTART and REOPEN plan. Please know that we will release the plan in it's entirety soon. We will also have a video to explain the plan. For now, here is a quick synopsis of what is happening. As always, this is subject to change. Families will have two options for learning environments when students return to school. Please note this is subject to change and will formally be approved by the Board of Education August 19th: Option 1: Attend school in person • Students and staff should conduct daily health checks prior to leaving home • Ride a bus to school or be dropped off • Social Distancing, board policies and safety protocols in place • Face coverings worn in grades 3-12 • As of July 22, 2020, students will follow Gold “2”; they will be in school Tuesday/Wednesday or Thursday/Friday. Other 3 days will be remote. • Week of August 31-September 4th students will be remote with individual in school appointments to meet the teacher and receive computers • Gold “2” in school cohorts will start September 8th Option 2: SOAR –Spartans Online Academy Remote - online learning from home • Students enroll for a semester at a time • Online classes with support from Conneaut teachers • Students engage in online learning and independent assignments • Curriculum follows the Ohio Department of Education guidelines • A child enrolled in SOAR will be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities • Register for SOAR by contacting Lori Riley, Superintendent at 440-593-7201

I know everyone is anxiously awaiting the announcement of our formal plan. We are still working through the guidance from ODE and ODH at this time. I can say that the schools will be open in the fall for in person instruction for a minimum of two days per week. However, we are looking into the possibility of opening for students for additional days as we develop a facial covering policy, temperature checked policy, and social distancing policy. We have met and/or are meeting with the Conneaut Heath Dept, both Conneaut associations and County Superintendents /Health Departments. I want to make sure I present a plan to our board that takes into consideration educating students, meeting their social/emotional needs and protecting the health and welfare of our students, staff and families. We also need to be prepared for the possibility to switch from in class to at home learning at a moments notice. That plan will be presented to the Board on July 22. We will be sending out a registration survey soon. Please also remember, if you wish to take advantage of SOAR, the at home digital academy, call Lori Riley at 593-7201 for information. Also, if you have a mobile device, go to your App Store and download the Conneaut Schools app. It’s free and our new way to reach more families. Guidance on opening schools is ever changing and we are working through that to put our plan together. We wants to do what’s best for everyone. Thank you for your patience.
Lunches for students for the month of June will be handed out on Tuesday's at 11 AM at the following locations: Conneaut High School Astatic Parking Lot (Corner of Jackson & Broad) Fire Station 3 (Corner of Middle & Biscoff) JD's Pizza (Corner of Route 20 & Locust) Corner of Russell & Harbor Street Monroe Fire Hall Highland Apartments (Back parking lot) Lakeshore Primary School
