Summer 2020 



While we are excited for our students to return to our school buildings, we know that some of our families will benefit from continuing their education in a remote learning environment due to health and safety considerations.  Despite the continued uncertainty of COVID-19 in our region, our reopening plan is designed to be extremely fluid which will allow us to pivot, depending on the situation, and still meet our scholars’ academic and social emotional needs.

The Warrensville Heights City School District will be offering families two learning options for the upcoming school year as we believe it is important to consider the needs of all our scholars and the unique situations each family faces during this time.  Families will choose from in-school hybrid learning OR remote learning at home.

Safety Precautions (At a Glance)



Spring 2020 

On March 12, 2020, Ohio schools were alerted to the impeding dangers of the COVID-19 virus. School within our state proceeded to develop plan that will allow for continuous, quality instruction to continue for all students. In just the day following this announcement from Governor Mike DeWine to close schools, the Warrensville Heights City School District was able to respond efficiently.

The district used the experience gained from the closing of schools to develop a better understanding of both the COVID-19 virus and how to continue instruction of our students within a challenging environment.

WHCSD is working diligently to ensure our schools are safe through active infection prevention and control.  Additionally, our district is prepared to respond to any risk of COVID-19 in our schools, should it become necessary.  We are in regular, direct communication with our schools, the Cuyahoga County Department of HealthOhio Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for guidance and updates on recommended precautions.  We will continue to keep families and staff informed directly through phone calls and emails.  Now is a good time to update your emergency contact information
