CHS UPDATE: Thursday, March 19, 2020 | 5:00PM | Answers to your questions
DAY 4 UPDATE
 
THE FASTEST WAY TO GET ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS FROM HOME: INFO@CUYHTS.ORG 
 
Things are changing quickly each day under our "new normal" here in Cuyahoga Heights Schools. We appreciate your patience as we all learn how to operate remotely. We are particularly thankful for and impressed by the response from families and staff as we all get better at remote learning for our students. 
 
Obviously there have been many questions during this time. I ask that you please use the above email address for your questions - you will get a prompt response. We are using an email address and not a phone number at this time because we are adhering to the State's recommendations regarding social distancing, with most staff working from home to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety and health of our employees. It is my hope that the following information answers some of your most pressings questions right now: 
 
HOME LEARNING ASSIGNMENTS | If you or your child have questions about home learning assignments, please email your child's teacher. I think you'll find our teachers are very responsive in returning curricular question for our students. We know a great deal of information has been distributed by our teachers. Please stay in contact with them and realize that it all doesn't have to get completed in one day. The most important thing for students right now is to keep some regular routine in regards to when they should be working on school work and when down time is. 
 
SCHOOL OPERATIONS | Answers to questions about when school might reopen, and clarification regarding the reconvening of school- related activities will be shared as soon as we know through this enewsletter. Updates are also shared on the District website and social media. I am in constant contact with the Ohio Department of Education and State Superintendent DeMaria and will forward relevant information as soon as it is provided.
 
SOCIAL DISTANCING | We are asking that students adhere to the "social distancing" recommendation put forth by the Governor and Department of Health. Students should refrain from sleepovers and parties during this time. While school-age students are not necessarily a known high-risk group, they are known carriers. Which means that even if our children feel well, they could transmit the disease to high-risk groups unknowingly. Please follow the recommendations from the Department of Health to assist in slowing down the spread of this novel coronavirus. 
 
REACH PROGRAM RECOGNITION | Academic excellence has been and will continue to be the focus of the Cuyahoga Heights School District. Consistent with this effort, the REACH program was developed to provide every student with an additional incentive to perform to his or her maximum potential. Even during our current circumstances, we are proud to recognize student excellence - please be sure to scroll to the bottom of this email for students recognized for their academic performance in the following categories: GOLD: GPA of 3.75-5.000; GRAY: GPA of 3.4-3.749; RED: GPA of 3.00-3.399.
 
We realize there are a great many of uncertainties at this time. Please know that as a school district we will continue to do what is in the best interest of our students and families to get through this crisis. We will be stronger in the end. Stay Safe and Go Redskins!!!!!!!! ~ Tom Evans

REACH PROGRAM RECIPIENTS
REACH stands for Recognizing Educational Achievement at Cuyahoga Heights - The first REACH reception was held in 1988, and as the name implies it is a tradition that is unique to Cuyahoga Heights. It serves as our 6-12 annual academic awards ceremony. We examine and parce student GPA's from the second semester of the prior school year (except 6th grade) and the first semester of the current school year and we use the higher of those two GPA's to place each student into one of three GPA bands: Gold-3.750 to 5.000 Red-3.400 to 3.749 Gray-3.000 to 3.399 
 
Students earning these distinctions will receive a customized medallion based on the higher GPA from the two semesters examined. Students who continue to attain a REACH GPA band will collect a medallion each year until graduation and these medals will be worn on their graduation gown at Commencement. So this means that our 6th grade students have an opportunity to collect 7 medals over their careers in Cuyahoga Heights Schools.
 
**Of note, though our ceremony for the 2019-2020 school year has been cancelled, medals & plaques will be disbursed to students at a future date. Hopefully soon!**
