It was a great week for the Mustangs!
New Quarantine Rules - Mask to Stay
I am attaching updated district operating procedures below.
The biggest change is that students who are unvaccinated and are NOT wearing a mask do not have to quarantine moving forward. Per ODH and Strongsville district policy the students will have to wear masks in school for 14 days following the date of exposure.
This puts our staff in an awkward position of having to police this policy. A student who agrees to wear their mask to avoid quarantining will not be asked to put it back on multiple times and if the student takes the mask off after being asked at least once they will then be placed into quarantine.
Happy Halloween from the SHS office staff.

ALANA BENDETTA, FRENCH TEACHER AT STRONGSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL
Mrs. Alana Bendetta is in her 12th year at Strongsville High School. Mrs. Bendetta teaches French and is also the World Language Department Chair for SHS. She is a lifelong resident of Strongsville - she graduated from Strongsville High School (Class of 2005), received her undergraduate degree from the University of Akron, and also earned her graduate degree from Baldwin Wallace.
“For as long as I can remember, being a French Teacher at Strongsville High School was my dream. Being able to teach with teachers who inspired me to become a teacher is an added bonus. I am truly so happy to be teaching my passion to others and hopefully inspiring students to continue their learning outside of the classroom,” said Mrs. Bendetta
“Above all, I love making genuine connections with my students. I believe that mutual respect and trust is essential in creating a positive classroom environment and I love how students come in happy, open, and willing to try new things. Their curiosity and overall kindness can turn any bad day into a good one.”
Thank you Mrs. Bendetta for bringing world languages to life at Strongsville High School! #WeAreStrongsville
