As you likely know, in a joint meeting of the Cuyahoga County and Cleveland Boards of Health, Cuyahoga County officials ordered a stay-at-home advisory to take effect on November 18 and last through December 17.
In addition to adhering to all current orders, including masks and the curfew announced this week by the governor, it calls for people to stay-at-home to the greatest extent possible.
Included among the reasons for which residents CAN leave their home is to go to work or school.
The recent advisory encourages schools to consider transitioning to remote learning after the Thanksgiving holiday. Similar to the recommendations made by this same board in August, and if the county were to reach level purple on the Ohio Public Health Advisory System, these are recommendations.
We are currently discerning the best path forward for Saint Joseph Academy by connecting and communicating with experts in the scientific community and examining all the relevant data in our school community. We both want what is right for our students and for the community at large. We plan to communicate our plans for December on Tuesday, November 24 in advance of Thanksgiving.
