No school for Cuyahoga Falls students Monday; teacher vaccinations cited for calamity day

Staff report
Cuyahoga Falls

Students in the Cuyahoga Falls City Schools district will have a day off Monday. 

There will be no live or remote instruction for all students in both options.

According to a message sent by Supt. Todd Nichols Sunday evening, he was declaring Monday "a calamity day" for all students." He cited the decision was due to the number of teachers "still struggling with the side effects" of their second COVID-19 vaccination, which was given to the staff on Friday.Nichols explained as a result, there was not a sufficient number of substitutes available to cover classrooms districtwide.

Nichols had announced last month that on Friday, March 12, there would be "no expectation of live instruction on that date.  I also directed them to put assignments in Google Classroom for our students to complete."

In addition, the food service department will be closed Monday. Students in the Black Tiger Remote Learning Academy will have their five-day meal bag pickup Tuesday at the high school door #9, from 9:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. and from 3 to 6 p.m.
