Dear Brooklyn City Schools Community,
I hope this finds everyone safe, healthy and doing the best you possibly can through this strange time. This certainly has been unprecedented in terms of education, but I am proud of the work our Brooklyn City Schools teachers and staff have done to keep our students intellectually connected, fed, and generally engaged in our school community.
On Monday, Governor DeWine extended the school closure of all Ohio school buildings through Friday, May 1. That means the earliest the students would return to our actual school buildings would be Monday, May 4. We will continue to monitor this as the next month proceeds.
This extended closure has prompted our administrative team to move to a Level 3 for our distance learning model. In this level 3, the District is committed to providing resources to students and families who are having difficulty accessing the online learning materials. The District will loan a chrome book to any student/family needing a device. Again, if your student has a device at home they can use to access the distance learning materials, then you do NOT need to borrow a device from the District. Parents can access information about how to reserve a device and select a time for pick-up of the device by following this link https://www.brooklyn.k12.oh.us/Content2/20376 or by going to our District website.
Level 3 distance learning will begin on Monday, April 20 and will continue as long as this extended closure continues. Please contact your school principal if you are still in need of hard copies of your student’s distance learning materials.
Hurricane Meals will continue next week. Please use the link on the front of the website or call 216-485-8113 to order the meals for the week of April 6 - April 10.
Spring athletics continue to be on hold. There will be no athletic activities of any type before May 1 at the very earliest.
The District and individual schools will continue to keep you updated as this unprecedented extended school closure continues. I speak for all Brooklyn City Schools staff members when I say we sincerely miss our students and cannot wait to be back together at 9200 Biddulph Road.
Stay safe everyone.
Dr. Mark Gleichauf
