The Board of Education will consult with the Conneaut Health Department and issue guidance for the 2021-22 school year by the August meeting. I would personally like to thank EVERYONE for your support and cooperation this school year. It was a long and trying one for sure but we were able to get through it together and stay #SpartanStrong!

COVID-19 schools report
Sunday April 25, 2021 Dear Spartan School Community, Conneaut Area City School District is committed to the safety and health of our students and staff. We want to inform you that this weekend we received information about at least two confirmed case of COVID-19 in students at CMS and CHS. These schools will remain open at this time. We are working closely with the Conneaut City Health Department and anyone identified as a close contact will be notified by the health department as a part of COVID-19 investigation. On Thursday, Ashtabula County went back into the red and became the 9th county for highest rate of COVID cases per 100,000 for a three week period. Younger people are catching the UK strain and this strain spreads rapidly through households. The coronavirus is not done with us yet! We must remain diligent and follow all health protocols. We want to be able to move forward with the many end of year activities we have planned but community spread will play a factor in the decision making process. Thank you for helping to keep people safe and to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and school. Sincerely, Lori A. Riley, Superintendent

After consultation with the Conneaut Health Department, the Conneaut Board of Education has determined that beginning on Tuesday, April 13th, current CMS and CHS students in groups A and B will be coming together and returning to school 4 days a week Tuesday through Friday. SOAR students will remain committed to SOAR through the remainder of the semester. We will continue to consult with Conneaut Health Commissioner Nichele Blood and monitor community spread. If numbers rise in a building or in the community, it may be necessary to switch back to hybrid. Therefore, it is important that we all remember to follow all health guidelines including wearing clean masks properly at all times and washing and sanitizing hands. Students should not be sent to school with any covid symptoms. It is important that we follow all CDC and ODH guidelines in order to stay in school 4 days a week for the remainder of the year and not have to go back to the hybrid model. Bus Routes will be posted on the website (www.cacsk12.org) once they are completed. Nothing will be mailed home so please check the website if your child needs transportation. Lunches will still be distributed to SOAR families on Mondays. Also if any in school families want a lunch for Mondays they can pick that up as well. Stay well and stay #Spartan Strong
