Good Evening. This is EHOVE’s Superintendent, Chris McCully. I want to let you know that plans will be released very soon for some important items.
Starting Monday May 4, we will require all staff, students and visitors to wear a mask while on campus. Additionally, we will continue to take the temperature of everyone entering our campus as we continue to practice safe workplace recommendations from our Governor and health departments. This is for the protection of our entire school community and visitors. EHOVE’s excellent custodial and maintenance staff will continue to deep clean and disinfect our campus to keep everyone safe.
Just a few quick announcements for students:
Adult Ed Students- Look for continued communication from each of your instructors about the possibility of returning to campus to complete your training.
High School Students-We normally have four big events this time of year to recognize students and their achievements. Work-based Learning Recognition, Awards Night, National Technical Honor Society Induction, and Senior Recognition. We’re still going to have these events, but in a virtual way. Seniors - you will come on EHOVE’s campus to participate in Senior Recognition. All students should check their EHOVE email because Mrs. Beckman sent details for our drive-through End-of-Year Checkout and Senior Recognition this past Friday. EHOVE staff continue to work hard to make sure all events are as special as possible.
In closing, I would be remiss without thanking Mrs. Beckman, Mrs. Dowdell, our teaching, secretarial, custodial, technology and all other support staff that continue to work together during this disruptive event that continues to test our patience and wherewithal to accomplish our goal of educating our students. Thank you to our entire staff, students, and community for your continued cooperation and support.
Chris McCully, EHOVE Superintendent
Active Learning Plan:
A Guide for Students & Parents:
Due to the public health issue regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), public schools were shut down by Governor DeWine. This shutdown includes EHOVE Career Center, which is scheduled to be closed through the end of the school year. EHOVE will prioritize communicating any changes with you as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding and support.
EHOVE School Closure Education Plan:
EHOVE is committed to providing active learning for our students. On the last day of school before closing, staff worked with students to ensure they had the technology and online tools and access needed to accomplish this.
The online learning tools that students are using are Schoology and Google Classroom. These sites were already actively in use by teachers and students prior to the students for many assignments, so using them during the closure should not be a significant change for most students. Since day 1 of the closure, teachers have been giving assignments to students through them. Also, it’s important that EHOVE students check their EHOVE email account every day.
Parents of EHOVE high school students can ask them to log into Schoology and Google Classroom to see the platform and review the current assignments. ProgressBook is also available for parents to review students’ grades and assignments. Links to all of these tools are available on the Student Resource Page at www.EHOVE.net.
For questions about assignments, students and parents are encouraged to email teachers. Email addresses are available in the staff directory at www.EHOVE.net or by calling 419-499-4663. A staff member will be available from 9 am-2 pm, Monday-Friday to answer calls. There are also good resources about Google Classroom for parents at www.commonsense.org and Coronavirus facts at www.cdc.gov.
We strongly encourage a schedule and structure for students to do their schoolwork. This will set up students for success and keep them in the habit of daily learning. Communicate expectations,set boundaries, limit non-school screen time, and keep daily routines as stable as possible. We’re exploring new ground together as we navigate through the closure, but it’s a great chance for parents to see their students learning firsthand. Check out the student success tips from an EHOVE counselor.
All EHOVE students have had a Chromebook issued to them since school started. If there are any hardware or software issues, call (567) 401-0011. An EHOVE Tech Department staff member will be available from 9 am-2 pm, Monday-Friday to provide tech support or an appointment to swap devices.
Students without Internet access at home have been mailed a flyer with information on how to obtain it free for 60 days. Any other EHOVE family needing these services may call Spectrum Internet at (855)707-7328 to sign up.
A list of free public wifi spots has also been compiled and is being mailed to high school students without Internet access at home. Any EHOVE family is welcomed to call EHOVE Tech Department to get the list. More tech resources: Students | Parents
So we comply with the Governor’s order, please do not come to campus. A pre-scheduled visit will be authorized for high school students who have been instructed by a teacher to pick up print materials or by EHOVE Tech Department to pick up a device. Those visits must be scheduled in advance by calling the High School Office at (419) 499-4663 or Tech Department office at (567) 401-0011. Other visitors to campus will not be granted access at the security gate.
Many home schools are providing grab-n-go lunches for students. Check your home school’s social media and website for announcements about these.
Victory Kitchen in Sandusky is offering free meals to families. Call (410) 627-8732 or go to www.victorykitchen.net.
High School students who need mental health support can contact Jess Avants at 567-401-0246 or JAvants@EHOVE.net. She will connect with students 8 am-3 pm, Monday-Friday.
Adult Ed students who need mental health support can contact EHOVE counselor Julie Cashen at 567-401-0746. She will connect with students on Tuesdays from 9 am-Noon and 5-8 pm, and Wednesdays from 9 am-Noon.
This is new for all of us, but we’re all already rising to the challenge together. We can stay happy, healthy and connected by supporting each other during the closure. EHOVE is here for you now, and we’ll continue to support the entire EHOVE Family..
