YOUNGSTOWN — City Schools families who need to pick up their scholars’ school work for the first three weeks of the shutdown will be able to gather those assignments on Monday (March 30) from 10 a.m. to noon at East and Chaney high schools.
“This will be the last pickup time for the first round of school closure assignments,” said Justin Jennings, Youngstown City School District CEO. “We are working on plans for a pick up of additional assignments in case the shutdown is extended. Those will be announced if needed.”
Ohio schools are closed until April 6 by order of Gov. Mike DeWine.
This will be the last time those families will be able to pick up the first round of school work.
The pickup at East is for students who attend Harding, Martin Luther King, P. Ross Berry, Taft, Wilson, Williamson and East.
The pickup at Chaney is for students who attend Youngstown Rayen Early College High School, Rayen Early College Middle School, Paul C. Bunn, Volney, Kirkmere, McGuffey and Chaney.
In keeping with health and safety precautions, neither parents nor scholars will go into the building to retrieve the work. They instead will drive up and provide the scholar’s name to school staff. Staff, who will observe all safety guidelines, will collect the work and bring it to the parent/guardian or scholar.
Also because of concerns about the coronavirus and slowing its spread, the school district will not mail scholars’ report cards to their homes. Instead, families will be able to access their scholars’ report cards at https://parentaccess.access-k12.org.
