Remote Learning

Students will attend academic classes online and report to campus for career technical classes.

Student Expectations:

Students should maintain school as a primary priority

Initiate and own learning 

Participate and engage in all learning activities

Track personal progress weekly

Asks for help when necessary

Expectations for remote learning will be the same as defined in the full remote learning plan

Outline of Plan:

Teachers will host live interactive classes that follow their original master schedule.  For example, if a student attends English class first period they will be expected to be online to receive instruction at that time.

Students are expected to attend all online meetings at their scheduled time.  Failure to do so will result in the student being considered as truant.

All student absences will follow the adopted attendance policy in the student handbook.

Classroom expectations for participation and behavior will be the same as if the student were attending an in-person class.  

Assignment due dates and grading will follow the policies adopted in the student handbook.

Remote learning will take place through the Schoology platform.

The student and parent or guardian are responsible to have appropriate Internet connectivity to actively participate and attend your scheduled class.

Failure to have appropriate Internet access is not an excuse for a failure to attend or to turn in course work on time. 

Student must report to the Apollo campus to attend career technical classes. 


P-EBT (Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer)  It is important that you fill out the free and reduced lunch application online this year even though all kids are receiving free breakfast and lunch. Many other benefits are tied to the  application for you personally and the school district.  If you know you qualify or think you might, please complete this ASAP to ensure you do not miss out on anything in the future.

How your student can stay current on school work during Quarantine or Isolation

  • Student absences due to quarantine or isolation are considered excused as long as we receive the appropriate documentation from the Health Department.
  • Students are granted the same amount of days in which to make up school work as excused days that they missed.  School work for excused absences can be made-up for full credit earned, during that timeframe.  Example: student misses five days.  Including the day of return, they will have five days to complete their makeup work for full credit earned.
  • Missing several days of school work can be overwhelming for students when they return.  While we do not require students to complete work from home during this absence its highly encouraged.  Teachers routinely post school work on Schoology for students to access. Encouraging your child to complete school work while out of the building will help to reduce their stress upon their return.
  • Students may borrow a laptop computer from the school during a mandated quarantine or isolation to be used for school purposes only.  Students will be required to sign a financial responsibility form to cover loss or damage.  Use of school technology off campus is still subject to our acceptable use policy.

 

How Apollo Career Center will comply with the Ohio Department of Health Director’s order regarding notification of positive COVID-19 cases at Apollo Career Center.

  • If your child attends Apollo and tests positive for COVID-19, you can report this to Apollo by calling 419-998-2900 or 1-800-992-2913. We also request that you provide us with written documentation.
  • If we become aware of a student or adult that has tested positive for COVID-19 and this individual shares classroom or lab space with your child, we will notify you via the School Messenger email system with a letter attached to that email.
  • If there is a positive COVID-19 case at Apollo and your child does not share a space with this individual, we will post that information on our website at apollocareercenter.com under the high school tab.
  • Please note that Apollo Career Center will work with the local health department and the local health department will issue quarantine orders.
  • We need to have correct email addresses for this notification process to work correctly.  You may contact Ms. Cox at 419-998-2921 or Mrs. Seese at 419-998-2973 to update or verify the email address(s) we have on file.

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
