Families with remote learners with IEPs are qualified to receive up to $1500 in financial support for learner provider services.

The Department of Development Disabilities (DODD) has partnered with the Ohio Governor’s Children’s Initiative to provide financial support to families who may need supplemental assistance outside of what is provided by their Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

The program, Learning Aid Ohio, connects tutors, aides, and in-home providers who can offer distance learning support with students who have IEPs. Students with IEPs have individualized accommodations that are difficult to achieve without in-person help, and Learning Aid Ohio will help bridge the gap in services to help promote academic success this school year.

Applications for this program can be submitted at www.LearningOhio.com. To qualify, a student must have an IEP, be enrolled in a school providing remote education 100% of the time, and be experiencing financial hardship. Families who qualify will be awarded up to $1,500 in financial support for learner provider services.

Let us connect you with learning providers to help you and your student navigate the world of online learning, specific to their individual needs, based on the curriculum their traditional teacher sets.

Harvey High School students did a fantastic job in their production of the fall play: What I Want to Say, But Never Will. Although modified due to COVID, it was still a successful weekend and the show was able to be performed in front of a live audience!

PCLS Families,

As a result of this rapid increase in cases and having inadequate staffing due to quarantine, Heritage Middle and Harvey High Schools will be closed for in-person learning until November 30. All students in grades six through twelve will be participating in remote learning during this period. All extra-curricular activities will be placed on hold during this period of closure.

Until last week, the district had seen relatively consistent conditions with regard to COVID in the schools. With eight confirmed cases last week, and another seven identified since the end of last week (two at Heritage and five at Harvey), concern has quickly escalated. The cases, and the large number of quarantines necessitated by them (totaling at least thirteen staff and over sixty students), have impacted our ability to staff the middle school and the high school. The trend is clear--the increased rate of infection across the nation, state, and region is now being reflected in our schools and negatively impacting our ability to operate them for in-person learning.

For more information, please view the superintendent's letter here: https://bit.ly/3ldQ4Bz

Additional Chromebook repair hours will be held at Heritage tomorrow, 11/10 from 9am-11am

PCLS IN-PERSON LEARNERS RETURN TO SCHOOL ON TUESDAY 10/27

At last night’s board meeting, the board authorized the superintendent to revise the district’s COVID school operations plan and to permit schools to remain open under a “Red” county risk designation if conditions are safe to do so. Under the advisement of the Lake County General Health District, it is safe for schools to be open at this time.

In-person learners will return to school this Tuesday, October 27. On Monday, required activities/assignments will be posted to Google Classrooms for students to complete.

Nothing changes for students who were already online learners. Those students will remain online.

We apologize for this disruption, and appreciate your patience through this process. We will continue to carefully monitor conditions to ensure that the safety of our students, staff, and families are not compromised.

The Harvey boys soccer team defeated Euclid 3-0 in their first game of the state playoffs. With the win, their record improves to 14-1-1. This breaks the previous win record of 13-2-3 held by the 2011 Harvey boys soccer team.

10/22/2020

This is an important message from Painesville City Schools. Due to the elevated risk level of COVID-19 in Lake County, school will be closed for in-person learning until the risk level returns to level 2 (orange) or level 1 (yellow).

For students already enrolled in online learning, nothing will change--these students will continue to follow their daily schedule as they have to this point. In-person learners will now transition to online learning, logging into their Google Classrooms to attend class remotely.

Students should come home with their Chromebooks and necessary learning materials today. Buildings will be open tomorrow during normal school hours for any students who need to pick up their Chromebooks or materials. For tomorrow, assignments/activities will be posted in student Google Classrooms for them to complete for each of their classes. Beginning Monday through the end of the closure, all students will participate in live lessons daily via their Google Classrooms according to their assigned schedule. Attendance will be taken daily.

Meals will be provided for students weekly each Friday, starting next Friday, for drive-through pick-up behind Harvey High School from 11:00 to 12:00 and 4:30 to 5:00. Families interested in meal pick-up are asked to register through this form: https://bit.ly/35k0uZw

Updates on the county risk level will be provided each Thursday. As soon as the risk level decreases, schools will reopen the following day.

Thank you.

The Certified Production Technician Program (CPT) helps PCLS students gain industry credentials to obtain their diplomas from Harvey High School and seek employment locally with the needed skills and knowledge. Additionally, an adult program will start in January at Harvey High School CPT Lab to support our community.

As a supporter of career tech and credentialing for high school students, Senator Ekland spoke at the CPT grand opening yesterday afternoon about sparking growth in Lake County manufacturing through the vitalization of career pathways.

Sponsors who donated over $150,000 to start this program are Mar-Bal Inc, Eaton Corporation, Avery Dennison, The Losziak Family Foundation and PCC Airfoils. THANK YOU for your support.

Congratulations to Connor Hedrick shot a 75 (+4) in the Sectional Division I Golf Tournament on October 5th at Quail Hollow Country Club!

Connor came in second overall but was the first individual qualifier in the Sectional. There has not been a Harvey golfer to move on to the District/Regional level in over 25 years. On Monday, October 12th, he will play in the District/Regional Match at Pine Hills Golf Club in Hinckley, Ohio, with a trip to the State Golf Tournament at stake. Connor will try to be the first golfer in Harvey High School history to advance to the State Golf Tournament. Connor will again have to finish in the top 4 to advance to the State Tournament at the Scarlet Course of the Ohio State University. The coaching staff is extremely proud of him, and wish him the best of luck!

The photos included are from the varsity golf match against Andrew's Osborne yesterday afternoon.
