Good Afternoon. This is Daryl Kubilus, superintendent of Cloverleaf Schools.

As you may have heard this afternoon, the COVID numbers for our county continue to rise as we have reached an all-time high incidence level of 598 -- over 2.5 times our level when we transitioned to remote learning. With that increased incidence combined with the concern of further spread over the Thanksgiving holiday, in consultation with the board of education, the decision and accompanying board resolution has been made to continue remote learning until at least Jan. 4. This will get us past the three-week school period between Thanksgiving and Christmas and, hopefully, to a time that sees our incidence level decreasing to a point where we can safely return to in-person learning.

I know, for many of you, this message is tough to hear. Our survey this past summer indicated the difficulties remote learning creates for many of our parents -- especially those with elementary students. After hearing from several parents shortly after we went remote, among the most widely expressed sentiments was, “Can we re-visit our plan?” -- specifically referring to closing with red and high incidence and returning only once we transition to orange. Given what we know about the virus and how we have learned to operate schools in a pandemic, those concerns are valid. Unfortunately, with the spread as significant as it is, we are not in a position to return right now. I want you to know I have and will continue having discussions about using more local community measures that can guide our decision-making in the future. As I continue collaborating with our teachers and board of education about how this may look, I promise to keep you informed.

Thank you for your hard work, patience, and Cloverleaf spirit that has helped us navigate this challenge. Like you, I look forward to a day when we are past this virus. Until that time, we’ll get through this together. I wish you all a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. Goodbye.

Dear Cloverleaf Families:

During this temporary COVID-19 closure, Cloverleaf will resume distributing meals to ALL Cloverleaf students at no cost. Distribution will take place each Thursday, beginning Nov. 12. Each student will receive five breakfasts, five lunches and milk. No sign-up is required.

Two time slots are available to pick up food: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Please pull into the north driveway of Cloverleaf Elementary School off Friendsville Road and the food will be loaded into your car. Please see the map below.

Weekenders program meals also will be distributed on Thursdays. If you have signed up for a Weekenders bag, please pick it up at the same time you pick up your weekly Cloverleaf meals.

Thank you.

A shorter version was sent by phone message to Cloverleaf parents

Dear Cloverleaf Families:

I’m writing to you today with unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected news:

Due to today’s announcement that the State of Ohio’s Health Advisory System has upgraded Medina County to Red status with a high incidence of COVID-19 infection, Cloverleaf students who have been attending school in-person will shift to remote instruction with their same classroom teachers starting Monday, Nov. 9th. There will be no in-person school tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 6th, to give our families an extra day to prepare for this transition.

For students already attending school online, nothing will change. For them, Friday will be a normal school day. Extracurricular activities will continue during remote instruction, with adherence to district and Ohio High School Athletic Association safety guidelines.

Prior to our return to in-person classes in September, parents, students and staff asked the question: At what point would Cloverleaf make the decision to go fully remote? That question deserved a straightforward answer based on data, not on guesswork or personal opinion.

In collaboration with the health department, students, parents, community members and staff, it was decided if the state designated Medina County as Red with a high-incidence of COVID-19 infection, Cloverleaf would go fully remote until the county’s Red status was downgraded to Orange or lower. That takes a minimum of two weeks.

Although the Health Department recently changed position on its original recommendation to go full remote with Red and high incidence, it would not be fair for Cloverleaf to renege on the safety guidelines we developed in good faith with our students, parents, staff and community at the start of school. If we err, it will be on the side of maintaining that trust and in keeping our students and staff safe.

While the shift to remote instruction in March was sudden, Cloverleaf has been diligently preparing for this possibility. Your child’s teachers and principals will be in touch soon with details, including how to receive a Chromebook, if your student needs one. You will also receive information on how families can pick-up school meals for their students. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to every Cloverleaf student at no cost.

This is news I don’t like delivering and it’s news our students and their families don’t like hearing. But, at Cloverleaf, our number-one priority is the health and safety of our students. I’m so proud of the way our students, parents and staff have worked together to keep one another safe at school during this pandemic. However, with the rampant community spread of this disease, the best way for our students to stay healthy right now is to receive instruction at home.

Again, for our current in-person students, there will be no school tomorrow -- which is Friday, Nov. 6th. For our current online students, Friday will be a normal school day. Then, on Monday, Nov. 9th, our in-person students will begin remote instruction at home.

It is my hope this period of remote instruction will be short and we will be able to offer in-person classes again soon. The best way we can all help make that happen is to follow COVID-19 CDC prevention guidelines by wearing a mask, washing our hands, and avoiding large gatherings. If we do that, and we continue to take care of each other, we will get through this together.

Take Care and Stay Safe!

Sincerely,
Daryl Kubilus Jr.
Superintendent

Good afternoon, Cloverleaf families. This is Daryl Kubilus, superintendent of Cloverleaf Local Schools.

If you have been following the State of Ohio’s COVID-19 public health advisory system, you know that Medina County has been at Orange Level 2 for the past three weeks. I was grateful we maintained our Orange status this past week, but concerned that for the first time since the advisory system began, Medina County met the high-incidence threshold.

As you may recall from a Sept. 8 email I sent to all our Cloverleaf parents, our threshold for transitioning to a 100 percent online learning environment is Red Level 3 AND high incidence. Then the threshold for coming back to in-person instruction would be a reduction in status to Orange Level 2, which, from my understanding, would take a minimum of two weeks. We are expecting the next scheduled update to the state’s advisory system this Thursday.

Please understand I am not trying to alarm our parents. I’m merely communicating so you understand where we are as a county and a school district going forward. I am hopeful we will continue to be able to educate our in-person students right here on our campus. Of course, I will communicate with you should the need to transition arise.

Have a good night. Goodbye.

Hello, Parents!

Last week we had a great first week of school considering all the changes we had to make to our in-person learning environment to begin our year. Today, we have our first confirmed COVID-19 case in our schools. The purpose of this email is to communicate what you should expect to hear from us as a school district when a student or staff member becomes a confirmed case.

On Sept. 3, school districts received a Director’s Order from the Ohio Department of Health establishing protocols for our communication with our communities about COVID cases. Essentially, there are two different communications you should be aware that we will administer when we have a confirmed COVID-19 case.

The first notification will be if your child shares “a classroom space or has participated in a school activity during the infectious period of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach.” This would mean someone in your child’s classroom, bus, sport, or school activity is confirmed or diagnosed with COVID-19. My hope is you won’t be panicked by receiving this email notification. It doesn’t mean your child should be quarantined or tested. It’s meant merely to make you aware. We have a system of communication established directly with the Medina County Health Department in which we will be assisting them with their contact tracing protocols. If it is determined through the contact tracing process that your child should be quarantined, you will be contacted directly by the Medina County Health Department.

The second notification will be just a general number of confirmed COVID-19 cases over a 7-day period in each of our school buildings. We will also tally a cumulative number of cases for the year in each building. You will not be sent an email for this but can see the results in the table above.

Due to federal privacy laws, we cannot disclose the names of any students, teachers, staff members, or coaches who are diagnosed, test positive, or under quarantine for COVID-19.

Again, I’m merely sending this email to inform you about our established procedures. We want to be transparent, but we certainly don’t want to alarm you when you receive that first district email about a COVID-19 exposure in your child’s classroom.

Sincerely,
Daryl Kubilus Jr.
Superintendent

Hello, Cloverleaf Parents!

It was great seeing our kids on campus and virtually for the first time today! Although we are sure to have some bumps in the road, I'm so glad our Cloverleaf students are back in school!

Last week we received the news that Medina County had a bad week with regard to new COVID-19 cases. Although our county maintained our Level 2 (orange) designation, our "incidence rate" rose from 58.97 to 82.89 per 100K population in one week. The highest incidence rate for our county prior to last week was 65.09.

I'm telling you this because we utilize our Medina County rating in the Ohio Advisory System as an indicator for our decision-making process on whether or not to temporarily close our schools. Specifically, if our county is Level 3 (red) AND meets the criteria for "high incidence" of COVID-19 cases (as defined by 100+ cases per 100K population over a 2-week period) we will transition to remote instruction for our in-person students until our county transitions out of Level 3. I have also been advised by our Health Department that we will receive a formal recommendation to close our buildings to in-person instruction if our county meets that same threshold of Level 3 AND high incidence of 100+.

I'm hopeful our county will do better this week so that we can continue with our current plans to keep our schools open for in-person instruction. Just know, that if there ever is a need to transition to remote instruction for our in-person learners due to a short-term closing, you will hear that directly from me via phone call.

Thank you for the great support you continue to show for Cloverleaf Schools!

Sincerely,
Daryl Kubilus Jr.
Superintendent
