Dear Noble Families,

Noble Academy will be closed on Monday March 16. Additionally, as Governor Mike Dewine announced yesterday, schools will be closed from March 17 through April 3. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during this difficult time for our nation and our community.

Teachers are preparing various enrichment learning activities for your scholars to receive during this extended spring break period. These activities and assignments are optional and non-graded. Paper assignments may be returned after the break. There is no need to return packets before that time.

Kindergarten through 2nd grade – Paper packets for all subjects will be mailed on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. These packets will include activities for a two-week period.

Grades 3 and 4 – Paper packets for all subjects will be mailed on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. These packets will include activities for a two-week period. In addition, teachers will share on-line resources.

Grades 5 through 8 – Google Classroom will be the primary source of communication for enrichment. Our scholars have an existing Google account to access activities. Please contact your scholar’s teacher via email if you need assistance with this account. Paper copies will be available to be mailed upon request.

We all have questions about state testing. Currently, the Ohio Department of Education is diligently working to create a plan that will relieve the requirements of testing during this crisis. This is an ever-evolving experience that will require all of us to be flexible and make adjustments during this uncertain time. As information is available to us, we will share it with you.

If needed, the building will be open from 9am to 3pm on Monday, March 16th for parents/scholars to pick up forgotten items. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your scholar’s/scholars’ teachers during this extended break. Teachers will be available to you except for the scheduled spring break period of March 23-27. Also, you may contact Mrs. Pryslak (grades K-4) at pryslak@noblecleveland.org, or Mrs. Hammond (grades 5-8) at hammond@noblecleveland.org. We are happy to support in any way that we can.

Remember, we are all in this together!

Take care and stay well,

Noble Academy
