Senior Honors/Graduation 

A Virtual Graduation Ceremony for each program will be posted online May 21, 2020, to honor each senior.  The link for the virtual graduation will be posted on Apollo Career Center’s website, and on our  social media.  

Apollo Career Center has been working closely with the Allen County Public Health Department, the Ohio Department of Education and a variety of other organizations to develop a plan for Apollo’s senior graduation.  As you know, there are many safety protocols to follow and they change often and rapidly.  Our senior class is substantial in size and students come from five different counties.  Taking into account all of these challenges has made it difficult to plan an event that mirrors our traditional graduation ceremony.  It is for all of these reasons that we have determined that a virtual graduation ceremony is the safest way to honor our graduates.  This was not a decision that was made easily.  We love our students and we wanted to celebrate them as we always have done.  In the end, we want you to be safe and this is the best way we can ensure that happens.

Coronavirus Fact Sheet

COVID19 Spring Break 

stop the spread of germs

Apollo Career Centers: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) Information

We are providing you with an update about coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and Apollo Career Center’s efforts to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff in the Career Center.
There have been 3 confirmed cases in Ohio so far, all in Cuyahoga County.  

We know an outbreak in our region could impact schools, so we are preparing for many “what-if” scenarios to minimize disruption while keeping our students and staff safe. 

We are asking students to do their part to help prevent the spread of disease. 

State Health officials recommend that individuals engage in everyday, preventive measures to prevent the spread of germs and avoid illness, such as:

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going

  to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. 

• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

• Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.

• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

These preventative measures will also be our best line of defense if the time comes that we do see 

COVID-19 in our area.

 

Additional information about COVID-19 is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website—
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html or
the Ohio Call Center: 1-833-427-5634. Open 7 days a week, 9am-8pm or Coronavirus.ohio.gov
                                                                    

As more information is released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the  Coronavirus and its potential impact in our area, we want you to be aware that we are staying up-to-date on the latest information and we’re reviewing all of our public safety plans.

Safety of our students and staff is our top priority.

If you have questions or concerns contact 419.998.2908.

Sincerely,

Keith Horner

Superintendent
