Happy New Year!

We would like to welcome everyone back to school! We are so excited to see all of our Jaguars on Tuesday, January 19th. We appreciate all of your support that you provided to make virtual learning successful for all our students. We would like to thank our teachers, students, and parents for all their hard work and efforts during this time. Please remember to send all school supplies back as soon as possible. It is important that your child have all their materials so that learning is not interrupted. Please return Chromebooks and chargers, hot spots, webcams, math workbooks, reading textbooks and workbooks, supply boxes, and manipulatives. Every student will also need a mask. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are looking forward to Tuesday!

Focus on Mrs. Salomon's Class

Mrs. Salomon's class has been hard at work during the past few months. They are working on routines and procedures and getting ready to come back to school 5 days a week. They are preparing to learn all about the inauguration of the president. The focus and upcoming theme will be on kindness. Take a look at some pictures below to see them in action.

A Message From the Superintendent - This information was sent home in an email to all families

On Monday, January 18th, at 7:00 p.m. I would like to invite you to a Virtual Town Hall Meeting. At this meeting, we will be discussing the protocols that will be used to keep your children safe as we return to in-person instruction. If you have a question that you would like to have answered at that time, you can submit it here: Virtual Town Hall Meeting. You will be able to view the meeting on the Willoughby-Eastlake City Schools Facebook. Because the Facebook page is public, you can watch the town hall whether or not you have a personal Facebook page.


In order to keep our buildings and classrooms safe and open, it is critical that we continue to be diligent in our efforts to avoid the spread of COVID-19. As we prepare to make this transition, I would like to share some information with you:


• If your child has symptoms of, or has been near a person with COVID-19, please do not send them to school. You should follow all CDC protocols for quarantines and isolation

You can also call the district COVID Hotline at (440)283-4401 to report any cases of COVID or to have your questions answered. The district is continuing to work with the Lake County General Health District to monitor the incidence of COVID in our schools and in the community.


• The USDA has continued the nationwide meal program which means that all Willoughby-Eastlake students will continue to receive a free lunch and breakfast each day.


• Willoughby-Eastlake will continue to send home meal packets each Friday with students who are in the buildings. For all other students, meal distribution will continue during the week from North and South High Schools.
