What an Exciting Time of Year!

Dear Ranger Families,

This is a very exciting time of year, and today's newsletter describes the numerous events happening over the next weeks. Please note that as we move forward into the fall season, our goal is to keep ALL students in school. The very best ways to avoid an 8-10 day quarantine for your student (should he/she be exposed to Covid) is to have your student vaccinated or to encourage your unvaccinated student to consistently wear a mask while at school (This means everyday in every class).

Thank you for all that you do to support student learning!

Have a great week!

NEW GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS for Classes of 2023 and Beyond 🎓

Today during Ranger Seminar, our teachers reviewed with our students the details of the State of Ohio's graduation requirements for the Classes of 2023 and beyond. A couple key differences from current requirements include:

  • Less emphasis on testing and more emphasis on "readiness" for college and career
  • More flexibility to pursue graduation "seals" in the student's areas of strength and interest

Note that course credit requirements for the State of Ohio and for North Ridgeville HIgh School have NOT changed.

Friendly Reminder- Quarantine Protocols

No doubt, our families know that Covid cases are increasing here in Lorain County and across the State of Ohio. The contact tracing and quarantine protocol the district will be using is outlined on the district webpage. HERE is a link. Remember that there are generally two ways for your student to avoid being quarantined should it be determined that your student was exposed to Covid in the school environment.

Your student can generally avoid a quarantine of 8-10 days by:

Having worn a mask consistently while at school OR Being vaccinated

Keep in mind that a quarantine CANNOT be avoided if your student tests positive for Covid.
