Good evening, Garfield families,

Last week, Eric Gordon announced plans for students to return to school in a hybrid learning model. This model will allow students in K-8 to attend full day in person learning on either Mondays & Tuesdays or Thursdays & Fridays while attending classes online as they do today on the opposite days (preschool information coming soon). For example, if your child is assigned to in person learning on Mondays & Tuesdays, they will attend class online on Thursdays & Fridays.

This week, each Garfield family will receive a Planning & Preparing for Hybrid Learning letter in the mail. In this letter, you will be given the following information:

  • Your child's In Person Days,
  • Your child's Remote Days,
  • Your child's Transportation Assignment,
  • Your child's Start Date will be announced soon.

All students are automatically assigned to hybrid learning; however, you do have the option to opt out and continue your child's learning online, as they do today. Please note, your child’s current teacher and class assignment may also change when we transition to a hybrid model.

If you choose to opt out of hybrid or if you would like to request different in person days, you can do so by clicking here. You can also call the enrollment office at 216-838-3675. By opting out of hybrid, you will have two options:

  1. Remote: Current model
  2. Virtual Academy: Prerecorded, online lessons (no live instruction)

I understand that families have questions about student safety and building preparedness. Please know, your child's safety is my top priority and in the coming days we'll be sharing additional information with our families. Please see below for the CMSD Family Hybrid Handbook, a video about building readiness (features Garfield) and additional information.

As always, please let me know if you have questions (you can also reply to this newsletter).

Thank you.
