Weekly Updates From Dr. Markwardt

April 9, 2021

Dear West Geauga Parents/Guardians:

We have had another good week with low active COVID-19 numbers in our West G community. Thanks for doing your part by sending us healthy kids. We certainly appreciate your efforts. 

Two days ago, the Ohio Department of Education sent us "guidance" on graduation ceremonies and prom from the Ohio Department of Health. We are currently examining this new information as we work to provide experiences for our students that are as close to normal as possible within these recently-communicated parameters.

Today, West Geauga High School will send out a survey from the Educational Service Center (ESC) of the Western Reserve. Geauga Public Health is determining the degree of parent support for COVID-19 vaccination clinics for students 16 years of age and older and the ESC is helping the health department to gather the information. The survey will not commit your child to receive the vaccine. Please take a moment to respond to the survey when you receive the link.

Have a great weekend.
