Following the closure of all Ohio schools by Governor Mike DeWine in an effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Cardinal Staff members quickly developed a plan to deploy alternative education methods and meals to students. On Monday, March 17, 24 classified staff helped deliver roughly 100 “grab and go” breakfast and lunch meals to district families who requested them, as well as blizzard bags to elementary students. Jordak Elementary School was also open that day for families to come and get the necessary items.
The district will resume the meal deliveries on March 30, following the previously planned spring break week. All district buildings will remain closed until further notice, with the exception of Jordak Elementary School, which will open from 8:30-10:30 a.m. for families to pick up their meals for the day. The Board of Education Office is also operating on limited staff and hours. We are so proud of our district staff members for all of their efforts in getting the education and meal plans developed and deployed so all of our scholars are receiving what they need to succeed.
We are also extremely proud of our scholars and families for all of their hard work at home and appreciate everyone’s patience as we navigate this “new normal” together. Stay well everyone and we hope to see you again real soon!
