1 District News Rocket Update

🚀 Rocket Updates – 3 MAR 2023

Good afternoon, and welcome to the weekend!

It looks to be cold and wet but I am sure everyone can find something to do in order to rest and recharge!

This time of year always presents us with the significant challenge of filling open positions due to illnesses. Recently we have had a huge uptick in the number of students and staff out with illness. While we know combining classes, canceling specials and canceling bus routes is not ideal, please know we are working very hard to keep students in school and accessing their education. 

However, we do need everyone to be extra diligent with hand washing and sanitizing. Also, please consider wearing a mask if you have a family member who is sick and if you become sick please stay home. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we tackle this significant issue.

Our Spring Recess this year is scheduled for March 20-24, 2023.

Please plan accordingly as the school will be closed along with our Surround Care Program. With Spring Recess coming up quick, please know that when we return to school following week the State Testing will kick into high gear. 

These assessments are the way our students show the State of Ohio what they have learned in reference to the approved standards. While we believe our students are prepared for these assessments, it is critical that students are well-rested and fed as they prepare for the tests. 

Please begin to have conversations with your students now about the importance of these tests and putting their best effort forward. Having conversations with your student early can also help relieve test anxiety. Please stay tuned for more updates from your building about the testing schedule for your student.

I would like to conclude my update by giving a shout-out to ALL of our staff members here in the Streetsboro City School District. Every employee in this district comes to work every day, many times sick or with other challenges, and continues to do what it takes to offer the best education possible for all students. If you have a moment and happen to see any of our many staff members, please thank them for all their hard work.

Have a safe and relaxing weekend.
