As COVID-19 continues to be a public health concern both globally and in the United States, Invictus High School will continue closely monitoring the news and the guidance of the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health regarding the spread of this virus.
In March, Governor Mike DeWine announced a three-week spring break for all K-12 schools beginning next Monday. In alignment with this declaration, Invictus High School temporarily transitioned to an online/distance learning model beginning 16 March, 2020. The school buildings were and are closed to students for the duration of this break.
Although we were previously scheduled to resume in-class instruction on 6 April, 2020, Governor Dewine extended the school building closure through 1 May, 2020. In accordance with this directive, Invictus High School buildings will remain closed through the month of April, and we will continue offering instruction via our distance learning platform. Our faculty and staff are available via telephone and electronic means of communication.
With in-person instruction on hiatus, we encourage all students to continue their studies during this time of closure. The following operational changes have been made to accommodate our transition to distance learning:
- Students may continue to complete their schoolwork via our computer-based learning platform.
- Teachers are available via telecommuting:
- Students with questions may reach out via our online platform, email, or by phone for assistance from our teaching staff.
- Phone calls to the school will be managed by a small team who stand ready to answer questions and/or make appropriate connections.
Our regularly scheduled Spring Break will occur the week of 23 March, 2020 through 27 March, 2020. During this break, there will be limited connectivity as we enjoy some much-needed rest. Additionally, we encourge our students, faculty, and staff to make informed decisions about personal travel and exposure in light of the prevalence of the virus.
As always, Invictus High School remains dedicated to education, safety, and wellness as our top priorities, and we will be monitoring the circumstances closely. The situation remains fluid, and we will provide updates as needed.
