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
Greetings once again from your full time Superintendent and part time meteorologist Lori Riley. We are now in the second wave of this week's winter storm. Robust snow will continue overnight and the wind will cause blowing and drifting snow. This will most likely make travel in the morning difficult. Therefore, for the safety of our students and staff and because this storm continues to be a doozy, all CACS school buildings will be closed again tomorrow and there will be no live learning taking place. Please make sure your students complete any work that has been posted or sent home for Friday. Enjoy your snow day, long weekend and please stay safe and #SpartanStrong!
There are two things we know for sure on this Twosday (2-2-22). The groundhog saw his shadow which means 6 more weeks of winter AND we are supposed to get snow tomorrow. Since we were anticipating this snow event at the beginning of the week, all students were sent home with schoolwork and devices today. Because this is being rumored to be a doozy, all CACS school buildings will be closed tomorrow and there will be no live learning taking place. Please make sure your students complete any work that has been posted or sent home. Enjoy your snow day and stay safe!
There is a wind chill advisory that is in effect until 11 am tomorrow. Very cold wind chills as low as 15 degrees below zero are expected. Therefore there is no school in Conneaut tomorrow. Stay warm Spartans.
Due to weather and road conditions at this very moment in time, Conneaut Area City Schools will have a snow day today. Please stay safe and warm. Thank you.
ATTENTION PARENTS: Please disregard any contact made by Apptegy (our attendance calling system) in regards to absences today - Monday, January 24, 2022. For some reason, they received information concerning absences and calls were made to some homes even though students were not scheduled today. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will look into the reason it occurred and correct the situation for any future non-student days. Thank you!
As of now we are planning on returning to in person school tomorrow. We will update if there are any changes.
After much thought and consideration, we have decided to utilize another remote learning day tomorrow for the safety of our students. We want to give our families enough time to prepare for arrangements now rather than wait to see what the morning weather holds. Staff will report. We will still run shuttles to Atech, St Johns and other out of district schools should they be in session.
After driving around town this afternoon I have noticed that the main roads are drivable but the side roads are still narrow which makes travel for our buses difficult and the safety of our students very much a concern. I also consulted with our City Manager, and appreciate the work his crews are doing to make the roads less hazardous. Therefore, tomorrow we will pivot back to a remote learning day for the safety of our students and drivers. Staff will report to their buildings. Please make sure your students' devices are charged so they will be able to participate in the remote schedule they used last week. While we know this is not ideal, the safety of our students is our top concern. Because we had just had a remote week, we know the devices are home and students can connect with their teachers. This is why we have decided to utilize a remote learning day. Remember the semester ends on Friday. Again we thank you for your flexibility tomorrow.
Tomorrow we will be having an old-fashioned snow day to allow us to dig the district out from all that has already fallen today and all that is predicted to fall overnight. We will postpone our return to in-person learning to Wednesday. Custodians, maintenance and mechanics are to report at 7:30 am to begin snow removal. Central office will be given a report time in the morning. There is no on-line school for students or staff. If you are heading out in this snow, please stay safe.
Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 17th in observation of Martin Luther King Jr Day. We will return to In-Person School on Tuesday, January 18th. Again, if your child is experiencing any signs of illness, please keep them home. Thank you for your patience and understanding this week.
Please note change in time: Food for students will now be distributed on Wednesday and Friday from 12:15-12:45 at the following locations: 1. Lakeshore Primary 2. Conneaut High 3. Highland Apartments 4. Fire Station 3 5. Monroe Fire Hall There will be 2 days of breakfasts and lunches each day.

The Conneaut Elks Hoop Shoot that was scheduled for Saturday, January 8, 2022 at 1:00 pm at Conneaut High School has been CANCELLED due to Covid consideration.
COVID cases are rising in both the City of Conneaut and the school district. So, after consultation with the Conneaut Health Department and the Board of Education, we unfortunately are going to have to pivot to remote learning beginning Friday January 7th. It was our hope that we would be able to stay in school, but feel it is necessary to make this change to provide ample opportunity to put the New Year's surge behind us. We will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, Jan. 18th, following the scheduled day off on Monday, Jan 17th. Students will be instructed to bring their chrome books/devices and any other materials home with them on Thursday. They will have work to do for Friday. Buildings will communicate live instruction schedules for the following week. Ww will also distribute food on Monday-Wednesday-Friday. More information will follow. We understand these are difficult times for everyone and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through this. We take a lot into consideration before making a decision like this. While we want our kids in school and know that remote learning is not ideal, taking this pause is necessary to help slow the spread and limit the number of quarantines. Please contact your child's school tomorrow should you have any questions. Thank you for your ongoing support during the unprecedented times.
