Latest News – Important Information 2020-21 School Year

 

 

November 2, 2020

Dear Cleveland Central Catholic Community,

In an effort to provide for the safety of our students and staff as we reopen our school for hybrid in-person learning the week of November 9th, while maintaining a quality learning experience for our students, we wish to share with you more details for the re-opening plan.

For the safety and security of our faculty, staff, and students and to support student learning, we have developed a hybrid model of in-person and online instruction to focus on five core subjects paired with a period of structured teacher support to assist with the days of online learning.

Daily Schedule:

The schedule remains the same as the First Quarter

For example, any student with the last name beginning with the letter A-D will be in school on Monday from 7:55am-2:15pm and will be home with remote learning the rest of the week.

Bell Schedule: 7:55am-2:15pm

In-person: Monday, Nov. 9 – Mondays: Students with last names beginning with A-D* (111 students)

In-person Tuesday, Nov. 10 – Tuesdays: Students with last names beginning with E-K* (86 students)

In-person: Wed., Nov 11 – Wednesday: Students with the last names beginning L-R* (94 students)

In-person: Thursday, Nov. 12 – Thursday: Students with last names beginning with S-Z* (94 students)

In-person: Friday, Nov. 13 – Fridays:  Assigned students (84 students)

*If a student is assigned an additional day it will be noted on the schedule.

Students will follow their schedule on the day(s) they are assigned to be in attendance with COVID-19 protocols in place.

* We will pair siblings together on the same day(s), regardless of having the same last name this will be noted on the schedule.

Online Only Option: We recognize there are high risk situations where students and/or families would be best served through the option of full online distance learning. We are offering that option for the first semester. To date about 170 students have selected to participate in the full online distance learning and will not participate in any extra-curricular activities or be present on campus at any time for the first semester through January 14, 2021.

Uniforms: Students will be required to be in school uniform per the Student Handbook on the days they are present in school.

Face Coverings: All faculty, staff and students will be required to wear face coverings when on campus. This also applies to parents/visitors who enter the building.  Parents/visitors will not be permitted past the main office at this time.

Entrance to the school building: All students and visitors MUST enter the ATRIUM DOORS located at 67th and Baxter Ave. This is the main entrance to allow for proper screening and safety protocols.

Temperature Screenings: All faculty, staff and students will comply with a temperature screening upon arrival to school. Any community member with a temperature of 100.0F or higher will be sent to the isolation room until transportation can be arranged. Faculty, staff and students may not return to school until they have been fever free for 72 hours without medication intervention.

Increased Sanitation Measures:  To increase sanitation, we have purchased an electrostatic cleaning machine that will be used in conjunction with traditional cleaning measures. Additionally, hand sanitation stations are installed in each classroom, the cafeteria, and main entry points of the school building. All touch points (i.e. desks/tables, door knobs, handrails) throughout the school building will be disinfected multiple times per day. Students will sanitize their desks / chromebooks upon leaving the classroom each period.

Social Distancing Measures: In order to maintain proper social distancing and allow for additional space between students, each classroom will have limited furniture to allow for desks to be spaced appropriately.

Breakfast / Lunch: Free breakfast and lunch will be served in the cafeteria. Social distancing and sanitation measures will be enforced in this space.

Locker Usage: Students will be assigned a school locker to place book bags and personal belongings throughout the school day. Students will be spaced every 4th locker to provide for social distancing. Students are not permitted to carry book bags with them throughout the school day.

Field Trips: There will be no field trips for the first semester.

End of the Day: All students must depart from campus by 3:15pm every day to allow for sanitation protocols to be completed in preparation for the next school day.

Student Support: Students will have access to online support with teachers for the three/four days they are learning remotely from home. We know these are challenging times. Any student or family who is in need of social, emotional or crisis support should contact Sr. Erin at 216-641-2036 for additional support and assistance.

The lesson will be taught remotely by the teacher. Student participation will be included in the lesson.  Teachers will share their screen, use Google Slides or Google Docs for presentation purposes, and use other tools for “writing on the board” while teaching.  When students sign on they will have the option of having video on or off depending on their comfort level.

Assignments for the week will be based on the content taught during the lesson for the week.

Teachers will offer help sessions and office hours at specific times during the school day.  The Ironman Way period has been added to allow for additional support of student learning as well. This is an effort to support remote learning and to provide additional assistance to students at various times when needed.

Remote Learning Quarter 1, 2020-2021

August 7, 2020

Dear Cleveland Central Catholic families,

We pray each of you are well.  Enclosed you will find important updates and communication regarding the 2020-2021 academic year.

For the safety and wellness of our faculty, staff, and students and to support student learning we have made the decision to follow the recommendation of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health issued on July 30, 2020.  The recommendation is as follows:

“Begin the 2020-21 school year operating remotely due to the elevated health risk posed to students, staff and family members and discontinue extracurriculars such as sports, band, theater, choir and other activities during the remote learning period.”

This decision was made with great consideration and discernment in light of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health’s recent recommendation. We recognize and acknowledge this decision brings sadness and disappointment. There will be missed social interaction, and extracurricular activities. It is hard to imagine starting the school year without the positive community spirit that fills our halls.  COVID-19 has presented unique challenges that restrict us from providing in-person education for a community of almost 650 students, faculty and staff.

The following important information empowers us to live out the ministry of catholic education remotely with intention, care and consistency.  More information will be shared in the days ahead.

We are grateful for your continued trust and flexibility as we navigate and respond to the ever-changing landscape of this global pandemic.

Peace,

Mr. Hyland, Sr. Allison Marie, Sr. Erin, Mr. Crawford and Mr. Duke
