Superintendent's Update: 12/4/20

Dear Highland Parents,

As we prepare to transition to remote learning on Monday, December 7, I want to provide additional information as a follow-up to yesterday’s message. As communicated in August, we expected there could be times when we would need to transition between learning models. While our goal remains to offer in-person learning for the remainder of the year, we also need to ensure that we are doing that in the safest manner possible, using the latest information available to us.    

Over the past three weeks, 28 new positive cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed, requiring 467 students and staff to be quarantined during that same time period.

Superintendent's Message: 12/3/20

Tải xuống club jarDear Highland Parents,

We were informed today, December 3, that Medina County has moved to a Level 4, COVID County Alert Level of “Purple.” According to the Ohio Department of Health, Level 4 indicates “severe exposure and spread” in the overall community. 

Tải xuống club jarWhile our school district has continued to safely offer in-person learning to our students to this point, the time has come to temporarily “push pause” on in-person learning for the next several weeks. During that time, it is our hope that case numbers and other key indicators in the county will begin to substantially trend downward. 

Tải xuống club jarAs a result of the public health announcement today, the district will be moving to the following learning schedules:

Remote Learning
Effective Monday, December 7, 2020 through January 15, 2021

Hybrid Learning
January 19 – 22, 2021

Return to In-Person Learning
Tải xuống club jar January 25, 2021

We will finish this week (Friday, December 4) with all students in-person and will work tomorrow to make the transition into remote learning (including distribution of chromebooks) as smooth as possible. More information will follow. 

We will continue to monitor and assess this situation in collaboration with public health officials. As always, we appreciate your continued support during this unprecedented public health emergency.

Catherine Aukerman, Superintendent
