Beginning Monday, February 8, all Shaker Heights Schools students in Grades 5-12 who have chosen to learn onsite will do so full time (students in Grades PreK-4 have been onsite since January 19). Please note that Mondays will remain a fully remote day for all students in Grades 9-12, except for Monday, February 8.
Families with students who have chosen to learn onsite should review the following reminders:
Students must wear a mask at school at all times, except while eating. We recommend that your student brings a spare mask to school. If your student does not have a mask, we will provide one.
If you have any questions about your student’s schedule, review the information on the 2020-21 School Times & Schedules page.
Families with students who ride the bus may obtain your bus stop information by signing up for/logging in to Here Comes the Bus. Our District code is 29207.
Review the Student Health & Safety Guidelines with your student prior to returning to school. Please note: The guidelines have been updated to include a revised definition on close contacts, per the Ohio Department of Health (see the bottom of page 3).
While not mandatory, we encourage families to complete the Daily Health Assessment/COVID-19 Screener as a best practice. Students who show any symptoms of COVID-19 should remain at home.
Breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge for all students through the rest of this academic year. Learn more about Free/Reduced-Price lunch and apply online here.
Please be aware that positive COVID-19 cases and exposures could result in the need for your student to switch to online learning as a result of required quarantines by students or staff. To that end, be sure that your student brings his/her Chromebook home every night along with the charging cord and any necessary books or frequently used school supplies. Families should also develop contingency plans for childcare, should a positive case or cases require your onsite student to temporarily move to online learning. Unfortunately, due to Cuyahoga County Board of Health guidelines and the short notice we receive when we learn of a positive COVID-19 case, students and staff may be required to pivot to online learning with less than 24 hours of notice.
