Everything you need to know to prepare for in-school learning

What to Bring to School


Students will need:

  • *their school computer (charged) and charger
  • headset
  • guided reading books
  • math kit
  • school supplies
  • masks
  • a water bottle with their name
  • packed lunch (optional)

*Students currently using a personal computer will be issued a school device.

  • Students will not be able to share supplies.
  • Supplies should be kept in a clear, plastic Ziploc bag.
  • Additional items, such as lunch bags, change of clothes, sweater, water bottle, etc. can be kept in a book bag placed on the back of their chair.
  • Please remember to frequently clean out and disinfect your child(ren)'s book bags, outerwear and lunch bags.

What to Wear


Uniforms are NOT required. Masks ARE required.
Students should dress comfortably. Clothing with offensive graphics and/or slogans will not be permitted.

Students should bring their own properly fitting mask with ear loops. Masks must be worn inside at all times.

Students will have outside 'mask breaks'.

  • Masks are required for all staff and students.
  • Staff and students should bring their own personal masks from home.
  • Schools will stock extra masks in child and adult sizes for students and staff who might forget.
  • Schools will supply face shields to have available for all in-person staff and students. These must be worn with a mask for added protection. Shields will be labeled with the student's name.
  • Classes will go outside frequently (weather permitting) throughout the day for mask breaks while maintaining safe distances.

Social Distancing in Classrooms


On March 19, 2021 the CDC issued updated operational procedures for K-12 schools.

In elementary schools, the CDC now recommends all students remain at least three feet apart in classrooms where mask use is universal, regardless of community transmission.

Students will continue to distance at least six feet apart in the hallways and outside.

Eating at School


Breakfast and lunch will be eaten in classrooms.

All students will eat their grab-and-go breakfast and/or their lunches at their desks (unless weather permits eating outside).

Each child will eat behind their individual desk shield with their mask off.

Students are permitted to bring a lunch from home.

School Building Quarantine Protocols


The school will consult with the Cuyahoga County Department of Health on quarantines.

Click the buttons below to review various scenarios of symptoms and known exposures and our policies and expectations around quarantine and communicating with families.

Technology in the School Building


Students will access content on a computer.

During the pandemic, the use of devices ensures students at home and in school buildings have access to the same curriculum and engaged learning.

However, students will not ONLY learn on devices. Primary and Developing students will continue to receive sets of physical books.

Learning in the School Building


Students will benefit from increased structure and socialization.

Students will continue to be taught in the classroom by a highly-trained teacher (whole class and small groups), practice writing in notebooks, using math resources, and have access to other offline educational materials.

COVID-19 Vaccine Availability


All school staff are being offered the vaccine.

School staff are part of the CMSD rollout that began February 8. There is COVID-19 vaccine available for children.

When vaccine becomes available for children, unless Ohio law changes, our public schools can not require students have it in order to attend.
