POWER OUTAGE, BUT NO ENERGY OUTAGE

Yesterday at 2:30 PM all of East 71st Street, including Cuyahoga Heights Schools, lost power. Thankfully, our Middle and High School were already dismissing for the day, so our secondary students experienced little to no effect. At the Elementary level, Mrs. Houchen and her staff quickly put a plan in place to notify parents and keep students engaged until dismissal time. Our students were dismissed old-school style, without technology, without a glitch. 

While I wasn't surprised by everyone's great response during the outage, I was certainly impressed. We have GREAT people in Cuyahoga Heights Schools.

AFTER-PROM FUNDRAISER

Now that we have many of our students back in our buildings, we are working to move forward with as many activities and events as allowable under our current conditions. One of these is the annual After-Prom Committee fundraiser. See the attached flyer for details.
PSAT NEXT TUESDAY

Just a reminder, next Tuesday all Sophomores and Juniors will be taking the PSAT at Cuyahoga Heights High School. Please get a good night's sleep and have breakfast before coming to school. This testing provides a great deal of data to better prepare students for taking timed tests, and to identify areas that need to be worked on before taking the SAT.
