March 19, 2020—Shaker Heights Schools has canceled all District- and school-sponsored events, music and fine arts performances, PTO and Band Booster meetings and events and staff/student travel scheduled for April 1-April 30. This decision is based on federal, state and local coronavirus guidance and recommendations.
Unfortunately, the Shaker Heights High School Senior Prom, scheduled for Saturday, April 18, is among the canceled events. If and when guidance regarding large-group gatherings changes prior to the end of the school year, the District will work to reschedule the Senior Prom at a later date.
Additionally, the seventh-grade trip to Detroit, scheduled for April 30-May 1, and the eighth-grade trip to Washington, DC from May 6-8, have also been canceled.
The District will share information regarding refunds when it becomes available.
