News - Back to School Information, 2020-2021 School Year

Published on

Dear Students and Parents,

Last night at the Regular Avon Lake City Schools Board of Education meeting the Back to School Plan for the Avon Lake City School District for the 2020-2021 school year was presented to the School Board by Dr. Jack Dibee, Curriculum Director of the Avon Lake City School District.   The presentation by Dr. Dibee is available to watch on YouTube.

Our Back to School Plan for 2020-2021 has been months in the planning.  As you read through the plan, you will see we have two main options:  in-person learning and on-line learning.  

From now until the start of school in August we will need information from parents in order to finalize the Avon Lake on-line and in-person learning plans.   Please click on the hyperlinks below to complete the forms that are appropriate for your family.  

Chromebook Sign Out:
If you would like your child to have access to a Chromebook to bring home for either on-line or in-person learning, please click on this link.

Transportation Survey K-8:
Please complete this transportation survey if you have a Pre-K to 8th grade student.

Back to School Form:
All parents need to update their student’s “Back to School” forms regardless if they plan to attend on-line or on-campus in the fall.  

Avon Lake City School District is dedicated to implementing on-line and in-person programs this fall that meet the academic needs of each student while keeping students and staff as safe as possible. After reading the Avon Lake plan we are sure that there will be many opinions and questions.  We recognize that it is a lot of information and presents a very different school day and environment compared to the beginning of school in August of 2019.  That being said, we can make the 2020-2021 school year an outstanding experience for all students.  

To make this happen we will have to work together.  If each of us focus on what we have to do to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 we can avoid another school closure.  We will get through this by being flexible, being respectful to each other, showing each other grace, while giving each other a helping hand when needed.

Thank you for the patience you have shown as we have worked on the plan for the opening of our schools this year.  Thank you in advance for helping the students and staff of Avon Lake Schools as well as the Avon Lake Community navigate this unprecedented situation.

Stay Safe!
