Hello Noble Families,

The Ohio Department of Education has provided an update today that the testing window has been extended for science for Grades 5 & 8. Since this school year has been challenging, we would like to allow our teachers and scholars more time to prepare for this state assessment. For these reasons, we are moving the Science Ohio State Test from Wednesday April 28, to Wednesday, May 12th. All 5th and 8th grade scholars (remote and in-person) should be in attendance on May 12 from 8:05am-1:40pm to complete both parts of the test. 
 
The Ohio State Math testing schedule remains the same:
Tuesday, May 4, 8:05am -1:40pm for “A” Classes (B classes have the day off)
Wednesday, May 5, 8:05am -1:40pm for “B” Classes (A classes have the day off)
 

Please note: This means ALL in-person scholars should attend school this Wed., April 28th for a regular school day. The testing schedule, with 3rd, 4th, 6th, & 7th grades having the day off will move to May 12.

We regret the inconvenience of the of a schedule change, however, we truly believe this extra learning time will benefit our scholars. We’re all in this together!

Hello Noble Families, 

I wanted to clarify details regarding the schedule for state testing. Due to test security requirements, the Ohio Department of Education has shared that all scholars must complete the state tests in the school building because the assessments cannot be done remotely. Therefore, on the assigned testing days, scholars who are currently learning online must also attend in person. 
Since we are testing A and B sections separately, we will have available classrooms to use to provide more space between scholars.

Here are the assigned testing dates for grades 3-8:

Scholars should be in uniform, well-rested and arrive on time for days of testing with a fully charged Chromebook.  

Tuesday, April 20

All A Classes (3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A, & 8A) will have a regular school day from 8:05am- 1:40pm and complete their Reading test.

Part 1 will be in the morning.

Part 2 will be in the afternoon.

All B classes in grades 3-8 (3B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B, & 8B) will not have school.

Wednesday, April 21

All B classes in grades 3-8 (3B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B, & 8B) will have a regular school day from 8:05am- 1:40pm and complete their Reading test.

Part 1 will be in the morning.

Part 2 will be in the afternoon.

All A classes in grades 3-8 (3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A, & 8A) will not have school.

2021-2022 Re-enrollment

January 15, 2021

Dear Noble Families, 

The stay-at-home order for Cuyahoga County has been extended to January 31st, recommending schools to remain in virtual learning. To comply with the order, and for the safety of our families and staff, Noble Academy will delay our plans to resume hybrid learning until the week of February 1st. I understand the delays may be frustrating. I can assure you that your Noble team is working hard to make sure that we are following safety regulations and considering the best learning options for our families. Please continue to have your scholar follow their current virtual schedule and join daily live sessions through the end of January. The 2nd quarter will be ending on Friday, January 22nd and all assignments are due at that time. 

There is no doubt, we are all looking forward to the time that we can resume regular school. Until then, we will continue to do our very best to provide a safe and effective learning environment. I will continue to keep you updated over the next couple of weeks. Thank you for your continued support and partnership with Noble Academy.

We are all in this together,

Mrs. Hammond, Principal
Noble Academy Administration

Dear Noble Families, 

We hope you are staying safe during this very challenging year. We appreciate your hard work and the sacrifices you have made to support your virtual learning scholar. Thank you to those families who have reached out to share their specific difficulties, as well as illness, so teachers and staff can better support various needs. Also, thank you to the frontline workers in our Noble Academy community. Your dedication and support of others is truly admirable. 

 

As we prepare to finish the last few school days of 2020, we wanted to share a few updates and reminders.

Plan for returning to Hybrid School Schedule

Currently Euclid School District is planning to return to a hybrid learning model on Thursday, January 7, 2021. Noble Academy plans to follow the district’s lead, and return on January 7th, as well. Because only about 34% of Noble’s enrollment is participating in the hybrid learning model, grade level groups will be combined and hybrid days will move to only Tuesday and Thursday for the remainder of the 2nd quarter. Any families who were participating in hybrid learning as of November 19, that would like to move to 100% virtual learning beginning January 7th, please notify the school office.

Also, we appreciate the scholars and families who are utilizing the homework help times teachers are offering on a daily basis. Attending live class sessions will ultimately help scholars be the most successful and prepared to complete their work. As previously shared, specials for grades 4-8 are optional.

Stay safe this holiday season and enjoy your winter break, 

Noble Academy

November 19, 2020

Dear Noble Families, 

After Cuyahoga County’s stay at home advisory announcement yesterday, Euclid City Schools made the decision to move to 100% remote learning after Thanksgiving break. Similarly, Noble Academy will be moving to 100% remote learning on Monday, November 30th to Friday, December 18th. We recognize this schedule change will greatly impact our families and require different arrangements to be made for scholars.

Homeroom teachers will be sharing a schedule for daily instruction. Time with each core content teacher will occur daily. Additionally, math and reading teachers will hold sessions with small groups for further academic support. 

As a reminder, Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, November 24th, were already scheduled to be virtual learning days for all scholars. Teachers will be holding live sessions on these two days and providing support to scholars on 2nd quarter assignments. 

The school office will continue to be open daily from 9am-3pm on Monday- Thursday and 9am-12pm on Friday.


October 29, 2020

Dear Noble Families,

We were relieved to learn that Cuyahoga County did not reach the designation of a “purple” county today. As a result, we will continue with our plan to begin hybrid learning on Monday, November 2, 2020.

Adjusted Hybrid Opening Dates are as follows:

Monday, Nov. 2 – Grades 5-8, section A classes begin the hybrid schedule

Tuesday, Nov. 3 – No School (election day)

Wednesday, Nov. 4 – Grades 5-8, section A classes continue and K-4 section A classes begin the hybrid schedule

Thursday, Nov. 5 – Grades K-8, section B classes begin the hybrid schedule

 

Your scholars homeroom teachers are sharing the detailed schedule for each class.

 

If your scholar is attending in person learning next week, please remember the following:

  • BRING FULLY CHARGED CHROMEBOOKS! And the charging cord

  • School uniforms are required

  • Scholars may bring a spill-proof water bottle, but one will be provided

  • Masks are required for everyone 

We are very excited to have our scholars back in the building and recognize the importance of in-person learning to their development. Currently, 51% of Noble families are electing to remain virtual and 49% are choosing to attend hybrid in-person classes.

Over the past several months, Noble Academy has put many layers of protection in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Those measures include required mask-wearing, social distancing, regular cleaning/sanitizing, no-touch temperature taking, water bottle refilling stations, air circulation, and contact tracing. A weekly chart tracking all reported coronavirus cases and exposures from staff, scholars and families is available on the website. More safety measure details and procedures that must be followed are listed on the enclosed Hybrid Learning Plan and may be accessed by clicking herePLEASE READ THOROUGHLY! Also, please see the attachment for important Pick Up & Drop Off Procedures.

If your student is sick, DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. Continue to check your child for COVID-19 symptoms daily: fever or chills, new uncontrolled cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, new onset of severe headache, especially with fever.

We know this school year has challenged our families and our staff. We are working hard to provide a supportive learning environment with the least disruptions possible. We continue to be thankful for your continued support and are open to your suggestions as we navigate uncharted territory.

Any concerns or inquiries regarding school safety should be directed to our Deans:

K-4 Mrs. Tondola tondola@noblecleveland.org 216-486-8866 ext. 36

5-8 Ms. Tate tate@noblecleveland.org 216-486-8866 ext. 30

Stay safe, social distance and wear your mask!

Dear Noble Families,

Despite Cuyahoga County moving to a Level 3 “red” status on Thursday, October 15, the Euclid City School District has decided to move forward with a hybrid school opening option for families. As is customary for Noble Academy Cleveland, we will follow the district’s lead and do the same. We will begin hybrid in-person learning for scholars in grades 5-8 on Monday, October 26, and for grades K-4 on November 4. Because our teachers will be working with both hybrid learning scholars and fully remote scholars, there will be a schedule adjustment for your scholars the week that their grade level begins hybrid learning. These schedules will be shared by your scholar’s teacher this week. Given the projections for coronavirus to be on the rise for the next 3 months, it is necessary to move to a schedule that will allow all Noble learners to remain on the same schedule whether hybrid scholars are in the building or we move back to fully remote learning.

We recognize most scholars learn most effectively in a classroom with a teacher. Noble Academy values equity in education and we will continue doing everything we can to provide strong education, even in this ever-changing environment. We will make the most of days scholars can join their teachers in the building. Also, we are happy to provide a fully remote option for families who feel the safest at home. Currently we have 51% of scholars choosing hybrid learning and 49% choosing online learning. While you’re not able to change from remote learning to hybrid learning until the 3rd quarter, you may elect to move from hybrid learning to fully remote learning at any time.

Over the past several months, Noble Academy has put many layers of protection in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Those measures include required mask-wearing, social distancing, regular cleaning/sanitizing, no-touch temperature taking, water bottle refilling stations, air circulation, and contact tracing. You will soon view a daily chart tracking all reported coronavirus cases and exposures from staff, scholars and families. More safety measure details are listed on the enclosed Hybrid Learning Plan and may be accessed by clicking here.

Since last March, we started continuously monitoring COVID-19 related data and information. In addition, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, and other health agencies data and recommendations factor into our decision-making. Our full-time school nurse has been in regular contact with the Cuyahoga County Department of Health. Her office will relocate to the Activity Center across Noble’s parking lot. This move allows her to have more space to provide two separate clinic rooms. One will be solely for scholars with COVID-19 like symptoms, who will be isolated from other scholars and must be picked up from school immediately. For our hybrid families, we urge you to keep your scholars at home if they are showing any cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms. We request your help in keeping our scholars and educators safe and healthy by reviewing and adhering to the health procedures and guidelines for Ohio Department of Health website. We will continue monitoring the situation at the state, county, and local levels and make adjustments to continue educating our children, and keeping our community safe and healthy. 

Any concerns or inquiries regarding school safety should be directed to our Deans:

K-4 Mrs. Tondola  tondola@noblecleveland.org 216-486-8866 ext. 36

5-8 Ms. Tate tate@noblecleveland.org 216-486-8866 ext. 30

Academic inquiries should be directed to your scholar’s teachers.

For health related concerns or reporting for coronavirus exposures and cases, please contact Nurse Anne Spisak at 216-486-8866 ext. 37.

For all other concerns or inquiries please contact the school office at 216-486-8866.

 

This week, all families choosing the hybrid learning model will receive an important mailing including more detailed information regarding safety, and parking lot drop off and pick-up procedures. Please take the time to read and pay careful attention to the Family and Scholar Expectations sections.

 

Stay safe and remember, we are all in this together,

Lea Hammond M.Ed.
