Tonight's Cuyahoga Falls Board of Education meeting postponed to Jan. 13
Superintendent says meeting date changed due to today's events in Washington D.C.
CUYAHOGA FALLS — Tonight's Board of Education meeting has been postponed to Jan. 13, per a notice issued by the board office at 4:07 p.m.
Superintendent Dr. Todd Nichols confirmed that the meeting was postponed due to today's events in Washington D.C. where protesters supporting President Donald Trump breached the U.S. Capitol building and forced a lockdown.
It had been anticipated that there may be an update on the return to school plan during the board meeting.
All students in the Cuyahoga Falls City School District are continuing to take classes in a fully virtual format in both the current week and next week.
Superintendent Dr. Todd Nichols said the final decision on what happens the week of Jan. 18 rests with him. He noted he had expected to discuss this afternoon (Wednesday) with Summit County Public Health representatives and other area school superintendents "to help guide the decision."
Nichols earlier on Wednesday said he was most likely going to discuss the return to school issue during his comments at the board meeting.
The board of education's organizational meeting will now happen at 5:15 p.m. on Jan. 13, followed by the regular meeting at 6.
