District Shares Second Quarter Learning Options

Last week, we notified families that starting October 19th the District will be returning to partial or full in-person instruction, depending on whether the county alert status is at Level 1 (Yellow) or Level 2 (Orange). We know that there may be concern regarding the safety of this return so we wanted to share the extensive safety protocols we have developed in line with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, Ohio Department of Health and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health that can be viewed on our COVID-19 Building Safety Protocols page

Harrison PreK Class Included in National Publication student mixing pudding

Congratulations to Harrison Elementary’s preschool classroom, led by Sarah Holokai and Greg Stormer, for the inclusion of their Dad’s Day celebration last March in a national publication that celebrates partnerships between schools and communities. John Hopkins University publishes “Promising Partnership Practices” annually and Harrison, a member of John Hopkins’ National Network of Partnership Schools, was one of only 40 schools from across the nation included in this year’s publication.

Free Meals Available for First Quarter lunch

Grab-n-go breakfast and lunch will be offered every weekday beginning Sept. 8 at LHS, both middle schools and all elementary schools for any enrolled Lakewood City Schools student. If requested, breakfast for the following day may be picked up during lunch service. Students (or parents) may pick up meals at any of the buildings (except for Franklin School of Opportunity). Masks and six-feet distancing will be required at all locations.

Remote Opening to the 2020-2021 School Year

Yesterday, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH) issued a recommendation that all schools within its health jurisdiction begin the 2020-21 school year remotely “due to the elevated health risk posed to students, staff and family members” and that schools “discontinue extracurriculars such as sports, band, theater, choir and other activities during the remote learning period.” Read the full CCBH press release here.

Therefore, following the recommendation of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH), the Lakewood City School District plans to begin the 2020-21 school year operating remotely. If conditions change in Cuyahoga County prior to the start of the school year and the CCBH modifies their recommendation, we will adjust accordingly.

Also per the CCBH recommendation, all athletic and other extra-curricular activities will be suspended immediately until further notice.
