Grades 3rd-5th Chromebook Request

In order to continue with their education, students in grades 3 through 5 will have access to online resources and assignments until school resumes. If a household does not have access to a device that would allow the student to complete this work, you may request a Chromebook through this form.  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdiQ4IZtVJQnvvPwj9bbjLopH9y11MRgYMpMzg8QWQCdiQ38g/viewform

ONE DEVICE PER HOUSEHOLD can be requested, so that we can accommodate the needs of our students. We have a limited number of chromebooks available, so if you have one at home or if you requested one from the secondary pickup, please do not request another.

  • While it is impossible to replicate learning at school our focus is to provide productive lessons, resources, assignments that keep students active and learning throughout the extended closure.

    • Since the extended closure has the possibility of extending past April 3, we will provide more at-home learning around that time.

Families with Students with Disabilities

Instructional packets with a list of online resources will be forthcoming for students in grades spanning PK-8.  For students with more significant needs (i.e., single classroom settings), Intervention Specialists, Speech and language Therapists and Occupational Therapists are creating academic/functional activities, daily routine schedules, and providing information on online resources as well.  Additionally, parents may receive phone calls from the teacher with more individualized information. 

The vast majority of EHS classes are online through Schoology and other online resources. For classrooms that do not regularly use these instructional platforms, instructional packets will be distributed. 


Families with students who attend out of district placements via Euclid City Schools
Please look for direct communication from the programs as they are preparing similar educational packets and digital academic resources for our Euclid students. Please contact Gina Rashad at [email protected], Sherrell Benton or Tajuana Hunnicutt for further questions and/or concerns.

Draft copies of the document will be sent home to families via email. If there are questions, feel free to contact your Intervention Specialist or Building Principal.

General District Information

Central Office & Building Administrators
All central office and building level leaders will work from home through at least April 3rd.  So please use their voicemail and/or email to communicate. 

 

Construction
The continuation of the work will be based on whether or not the construction team can maintain proper personnel.  There is a concern with staffing. This will be a decision made by the state and the construction team. If our staff members are not coming into contact with the construction group, we will defer to the OFCC, the local unions and construction management staff to make that determination. 


Issue 27 and Voting

The election has been postponed.  Once the State of Ohio and Board of Elections provides clarity, Citizens for Euclid Schools will provide our next steps.
