Cloverleaf Plan for 3-Week Closure

A  Message for Cloverleaf Families from Superintendent Daryl Kubilus on March 12:
 
As you have likely heard by now, Governor Dewine issued an order mandating an extended closure of schools in Ohio. I want to let you know the plan for Cloverleaf. 
 
First, due to the Governor’s directive to not have congregated outside groups of 100 or more, we are postponing the high school musical previously scheduled for March 12-14. More details on a potential reschedule will be issued at a later date.
 
All staff will report at their regular times March 13 and March 16 to begin the process of planning remote instruction for our students. Students will not report for school on those dates. However, 6th- through 12th-grade students can report at any point during normal school hours to gather their belongings from their lockers on March 13 and March 16. PK-5 students can report on March 16 to gather their belongings. 
 
You will receive a separate voice call from your building principals assessing home internet access as well as explaining how students can sign out electronic devices in the case of not having one at home to access any needed on-line learning.
 
As per the original plan posted last week, we will then use March 17-20 as calamity days — just the same as typical snow days. The following week is spring break.  Monday, March 30, will begin the first day of remote instruction for our students and will continue for the entire week through April 3 with an anticipated return to school date of April 6, dependent upon any further directives issued by the state.
 
Additionally, all athletic practices/games and all other extra-curricular activities are postponed until April 6. The Cloverleaf Rec Center is also closed until April 6.  The elementary school conferences scheduled for March 13 are canceled as well.
 
We will update you with calls and texts periodically to keep you informed. All the information on this call as well as timelines are now posted on our website for your convenience.
 
Parents, I know this is a difficult time for you and your students. Our goal is to make the very best of a difficult situation felt around the world. Thank you for your understanding as we comply with the Governor’s office in trying to help keep the safest possible environment for our students, our staff, and our Cloverleaf community.

A Message to High School Families from Principal Jamie Lormeau on March 12:

Please be assured that instruction will continue during the school closing. Students will be expected to continue to participate in their learning throughout this time so that they can earn their credits and finish the year successfully. We have a solid plan for what this will look like and will get those details out to you in another communication.

Students can access their online classes on any device that can access the web. They do not have to use our devices. Please call 330-302-0328 if you will need to borrow a device from CHS or if you will need paper packets of work. This allows us to prepare these for a Monday, March 16, pickup.

Though devices or work packets will not be ready for pickup until Monday, March 16, students are welcome to stop in on Friday, March 13, to get things from their lockers.

Our goal for our students is their safety and well being as well as continuity in their learning. Please do not hesitate to call or email with your questions and thank you for all that you do to support student learning.  Be safe and stay well.

 

A Message to Elementary School Families from Principals Karen Martin and Michael Moody on March 13:

We are calling to let you know that we will be in communication with you frequently over the next few weeks and the content of all of our all-call communications will be available on our Cloverleaf Elementary blog and the district website. Your children’s teachers are already hard at work developing quality instruction for your students to begin online or with hard copies for the week of March 30. To prepare our students for this instruction, we need to know if our families do not have internet or device access.

For the online instruction, families will need basic internet access at home through wifi, a modem, or a phone hot spot. Many devices will work with the type of instruction we are planning, including computers, Chromebooks, tablets, and smart phones. If you do not have any type of internet access at home, or if you do not have access to one of the devices we’ve listed, then we are asking you to call the school at 330-302-0101. For families with no internet access, we will provide hard copies of the developed instructional materials. For families without devices, we will provide a device for your students to use. 

Again, if you do not have access to either the internet or a device, please call the school at 330-302-0101 and let us know so we can make plans for your child’s instruction. Pickup for all materials for elementary students, including devices, will take place on Monday, March 16.  We will have another all-call will follow with pickup information. 

 

A Follow-Up Message to Elementary School Families from Principals Karen Martin and Michael Moody on March 13:

We want to talk to you about two important things that parents will need to pick up on Monday, March 16, for your child’s on-line instruction. The first is the instructional materials your child’s teacher has prepared. This will be available in your child’s classroom at the elementary school from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please enter through the main office doors. 

The second item is for those who have called in and indicated they do not have a computer, Chromebook, notebook, smartphone or tablet at home and need to borrow one from the school. The distribution for chromebooks will occur that same day, March 16, at the high school from the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you have not already made a request through the elementary school office to borrow a Chromebook, you need to do so before coming to pick up a device so that we know how many to prepare. Remember, if you have a device at home you do not need to pick up a Chromebook. 

To reiterate, all students need the instructional materials from the elementary. Only those who have made arrangements to pick up a Chromebook need to go to the high school. If you have questions please call 330-302-0101.


Need Technical Help with Online Instruction? 

The technology department will be available weekdays 9 a.m. to noon for onsite device support in the Cloverleaf High School lobby. In addition, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., staff and students can use the call-in tech support line: 866-779-7748 to have devices remotely assessed.

The following technical issues are examples of how the call-in tech support can assist:

  • Password resets for Google or computer
  • Account creations for Google or computer
  • Computer issues while you are logged in
  • File issues
  • Web browser issues
  • Devices not working properly

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
