Dear Parents and Guardians,
The health and safety of our school community is important to everyone. The CMSD COVID Hotline team wants to make you aware that there may have been individuals in our schools who were infected with COVID-19 that were not known or reported to us before schools went on winter break.
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
● Loss of taste or smell
● Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
● Sore throat
● 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 tranfer 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.
CMSD will extend its requirement that students, staff and visitors wear masks inside District buildings, CEO Eric Gordon has announced. The requirement will remain in effect at least through the start of the new year, CEO Gordon said in a message sent Wednesday to students, families and staff.
CMSD is kicking off a major new program that will get students thinking about careers at a young age and later guide them as they plan futures and gain workplace experience.
