In-Person Learning

Good afternoon,

Champion Schools will begin 100% in-person learning the week of March 8th. We will slowly transition to full five-day weeks, so the first couple of weeks we will continue to have Mondays as remote learning days. Over the next few weeks, the district will be moving desks and furniture to prepare for the increased number of students. I will be holding a district town hall meeting on Tuesday, February 23rd at 7:30 PM via Zoom to discuss the transition. The invitation will be sent out Tuesday morning by noon with a link to the Zoom. During the town hall meeting we will be discussing new guidance from the CDC and our health department, new safety measures that will be in place, and other changes that will occur as this transition happens. We are looking forward to getting all of our students back to school very soon. For the families of those students that want to continue 100% remote learning, that opportunity will remain in place for the rest of the school year. I hope to see you all at the town hall meeting on Tuesday night.

 Respectfully,

 

John Grabowski

Health and Wellness Update

Thursday November 19, 2020

Dear Champion Parents, Staff, and Community Members:

Champion Local School District received notification of one new staff member that tested positive for Covid-19. Currently, we are seeing significant spread of the Covid-19 virus that is affecting students and staff in all three buildings. Because of this new spread and the number of those in our school community affected we will be moving to 100% remote learning for all buildings effective immediately through November 30. All extracurricular activities and sporting practices will be shut down during this time. We plan to return to our hybrid schedule on Tuesday, December 1.

It is imperative that we double-down over the upcoming holidays to slow the spread of the virus. If you are sick or not feeling well you must stay at home and isolate from others. It is important for all of us to recognize the urgency of the spread of Covid-19 in our local communities. Be vigilant, frequently wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, maintain social distance, wear facial coverings, and avoid gatherings as much as possible.

 

Sincerely,

 

John J. Grabowski, Superintendent

Covid 19 Update and CHS Closing Notification Purple background :say Covid 19 Update

Champion Local Schools has received notification of two student positive cases of Covid-19 at Champion High School. Because of the new cases and exposure to a large number of students, Champion High School will be moving to 100% remote learning effective immediately through at least November 23.  All high school extracurricular activities will be cancelled while students are in the remote learning model. This closure is the direct result of outside social gatherings, and the new Covid-19 cases did not originate inside the school. Over the weekend, an event was held for students that was sponsored by parents. Attendees did not follow covid safety guidelines and were not wearing facial coverings at all times when not eating, and they did not maintain social distancing. We have yet to receive seating arrangements and names of all students who attended from the coordinators. If your child attended, they should quarantine and isolate from others until Saturday, November 21. Our Elementary and Middle Schools will remain open on the hybrid schedule, and their extracurricular activities will continue. In order to keep our schools open, each of us must double down on the essential practices to prevent the spread of the virus. These include practicing good hand hygiene, wearing a face covering, social distancing, isolating from others when sick, staying home when asked to quarantine, and most importantly avoid large gatherings. Thank you, and please stay safe!

Update on Covid 19 Rapid Testing purple background says:Covid 19 Rapid testing update

This is John Grabowski, Superintendent of Champion Local Schools Calling

Champion has recently been notified of new student cases of Covid-19 and a new staff case. Contact tracing is commencing and families are being notified. We are now in a position to begin the rapid testing system that we spoke of in the town hall meeting last week. If your child was in close contact with a student or staff member who tested positive, you will be notified and asked if you would like to participate in the rapid testing system. If your child tests negative during rapid testing,  your child will be able to remain in school during the two weeks that a typical quarantine would last. This is NOT mandatory.  All students would be tested four times during that two weeks using a non-invasive nasal swab. If they are negative they go to class and will not be quarantined from school. We have added a parent consent form in FinalForms. You do not need to sign this form now. You may make that decision to participate at a later time if it affects your child.

This rapid testing system is not a substitute for practicing good hand hygiene, wearing a face covering, avoiding large gatherings, and social distancing outside of school. 

Thank you, and stay safe.

FIRE ALARM at CMS Today:

On Friday, September 25th at approximately 8:05am there was an odor of smoke detected in Champion Middle School; therefore, the fire alarm was engaged, all students and staff safely evacuated to the CHS gymnasium. Champion Fire was dispatched and fully investigated. CMS was deemed safe for reentry by 8:20am when all students and staff returned to their classrooms.  It is believed the source of the odor was from a burning pile of debris in the neighborhood that infiltrated the Middle School through the ventilation system.

Superintendent's Message July 7

This is John Grabowski, Superintendent of Champion Local Schools

 

On Thursday of last week, Governor DeWine released recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Education for schools to return in the fall. We have been working on several plans for Champion Schools “Return to Learn.” We used the results of the previous surveys to help with those preliminary plans. We are now working with our stakeholders on finalizing those plans, and we will be able to share them with you in the coming weeks. Please be patient, many of the preliminary guidelines released to the schools were updated and changed as the virus spread began to grow and we need to work to align our plans to those changes.

 

Our best to all of you during these difficult times, stay safe and we remain Champion Strong!

June 8th Superintendent's Message

This is John Grabowski, Superintendent of Champion Local Schools

I wanted to remind all parents that we will be passing out food to those in need from 12-1 and 6-7 every Tuesday in front of the Elementary school.

The Transportation Survey for next school year will be available on line until Wednesday, June 10th. Please fill out the survey at www.championlocal.org/bus if you have not already done so.
 

Just a reminder, if you have not turned in your child’s chromebook, hot spot or other items for this school year, you can still drop them off Tuesdays from 12-1 and 6-7 PM in front of the Elementary School. This is the time of year where service and maintenance occurs. If they are not returned in a timely fashion we will be forced to send them out for repair and a fee will be assessed for the service.


I hope you and your family have a relaxing summer, stay safe and we all remain Champion Strong!

Just a reminder, both the Middle School and High School are collecting books and chromebooks this week. Please review the dates and times to drop off your child’s items to the schools. It is very important for chromebooks to be dropped off this week so our staff can begin updating the software and prepare them for next year.

Champion Newsflash from Pamela Hood, Superintendent

 

This afternoon, the Trumbull County Board of Health notified Champion Township that a mosquito containing the West Nile virus was found off the bike trail in Champion Township.  Champion Local Schools was then notified by the Township. Until further notice, our athletic teams will not practice or scrimmage at or near dusk/dawn, which are prime mosquito activity times. All games will move forward. All athletes, coaches, and spectators will be encouraged to use mosquito spray as a precautionary measure. Champion Township will be spraying for mosquitoes on August 28th. Champion Schools will be spraying the water detention area behind the new preK-8 construction on   Thursday,   August 9th.  

Thank you,

Pamela  Hood, Superintendent
