On November 15, we made the difficult decision to return to fully remote instruction for our high school and Adult Career Center students. During the past month, Lorain County transitioned from Level Red to Level Purple. We are currently back to Level Red. While we did not see large numbers of COVID-19 cases at the JVS, it is clear that community spread was dangerously high. Remote instruction was not the choice we wanted to make, but we are confident that it was the right one for our student’s and staff’s health.
Our second semester begins on January 19, 2021. At that time, we are planning to resume the hybrid in-person instruction model we followed for the first semester. By waiting until this date, we are able to give over 14 days between traditional holiday gatherings and a return to in-person instruction. We are hoping this will reduce the chances of a spike in COVID-19 cases in our building.
When we do return, we ask that all students and staff continue following the safety protocol that we have all become familiar with. That means wearing your face mask, washing your hands regularly, and keeping at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others as much as possible. If you are sick or diagnosed with COVID-19, please do not return to the building. We ask that you reach out to our school nurse Amanda Mayle at [email protected]
I am looking forward to seeing our students and staff back in the building soon.
Thank you, stay safe, and happy holidays!

Lorain County JVS Superintendent
