LAST DAY FOR SCHOOL OF ONE STUDENTS IS FRIDAY, JULY 1ST
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The health and safety of our school community is important to everyone. In partnership with the City of Cleveland Department of Health, we encourage you to monitor your child(ren) and members of your household for possible symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms may include:
● Fever or chills ● Headache ● Cough ● Loss of taste or smell ● Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing ● Sore throat ● Fatigue ● Congestion or runny nose ● Muscle or body aches ● Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
If you or your child(ren) experience any of these symptoms, please stay home and contact your healthcare provider to be tested. If your child(ren) or another member in your household tests positive, please call our CMSD COVID hotline at 216-838-9355 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We all have a role to play in staying healthy. As a reminder, wash your hands often, keep a distance of 3-6 feet between yourself and others whenever possible, clean commonly touched surfaces daily, wear a mask when outside or in any group setting and cover your cough and sneeze. Don’t forget, vaccination is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe.
The School of One is dedicated to producing successful graduates by offering students a differentiated, individualized digital online educational experience embedded with both the academic and social and emotional services needed to be college and career ready in the 21st Century.
To help students who seek an individualized approach to graduation in a nontraditional classroom setting, the staff at the School of One works collaboratively with each student to identify academic needs, areas of interests and personal barriers and strives to eliminate them. Teachers and students collaborate to develop a new path to academic, personal and social and emotional success.
The School of One operates as one collective high school, however our student population is distributed amongst 9 sites located around Cleveland. This allows for students to attend the site closest to where they live. However, students are welcome to attend any of our 9 sites and can transfer to another site if needed. Each site consists of a single classroom within the main building and has a School of One teacher and paraprofessional, as well as support staff. Those locations are: Collinwoood, East Tech, Glenville, John Adams, Lincoln-West, and James Ford Rhodes High Schools. Our John Marshall site as well as our Main Office are located inside Bard Early College (13501 Terminal Ave, Room 103, Cleveland).
We are fortunate to have recently opened 2 more innovative sites. These sites are similar to our others in that they have rolling applications, small classroom sizes, and computerized learning. However, each one has a specialized focus to meet the needs of the students who attend there. Our 8th site is located at The Foundry, Cleveland's rowing facility. Students at our Foundry site learn about rowing and sailing and have an opportunity for employment at MCPc, in addition to their core academics. Our most recent site, new this school year, is located at the new and improved LGBT Community Center in Gordon Square. This site will be fully integrated with the Center's QYou program in addition to providing students with their core academics.
After two years of going virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 23rd annual Rock Your World with STEAM festival was back in person Saturday.
The CMSD Summer Learning Experience is back for a second year, with something for every student, from preschool through 12th grade. And it’s free. Students can finish the year strong, get ahead or engage in hands-on projects and fun activities at more than 30 school sites throughout the city.
The City of Cleveland is accepting applications for an open seat on the Board of Education. Mayor Justin Bibb will appoint a new board member to complete a term that expires June 30, 2023. The seat was vacated when Jasmine Fryer resigned last August.
CMSD parents will soon have a one-stop online platform where they can perform an array of tasks such as finding their children’s school records, submitting forms and communicating with teachers.
