Mask Order & Health Department Guidelines Remain through the School Year
Despite the changes coming on June 2nd, we will continue to use COVID-19 precautions and follow the guidelines we have used for the remainder of the school year.  

That means we will continue to wear masks and be socially distanced.

We are basing this decision on the recommendation from Governor DeWine, the CDC, the Ohio Health Department, and our local Health Departments.

From Governor DeWine:

"With limited numbers of students vaccinated, it is important that we continue these safety measures through the end of the current school year."

From the CDC:
"CDC recommends schools continue to use the COVID-19 prevention strategies outlined in the current version of CDC’s Operational Strategy for K-12 Schools for at least the remainder of the 2020-2021 academic school year."

Extended Learning Plan
During his Feb. 9, 2021, press conference, Governor DeWine asked schools and districts to work with their communities to help students advance and make up for any learning that may have been lost or delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. He requested that schools and districts design plans to meet the needs of students that could include, but are not limited to, ending the school year later than scheduled, beginning the new year early or extending the school day. Summer programs, tutoring or remote options also could be considered.

Positive Cases
Parents/Guardians: Please remember to inform us if your student has tested positive for COVID-19 or if your student has been quarantined by the Health Department due to exposure to a positive case. 

Call 440-576-6015

Let's continue to work together to keep our students and staff safe. 

When COVID-19 cases are confirmed by the Health Department, notifications will be sent to parents and staff.

Students will be contacted if they need to stay home. Students who have not been in contact with a student who has tested positive will continue to report to school. Quarantine orders are issued by the Health Department.

If there is a positive case of COVID-19 in one of our associate schools:
  • We will notify A-Tech students of any changes to the schedule
  • A case in one of our associate schools may not impact A-Tech

A-Tech Restart Plan 2020-21 

  • Students will be divided into two groups based on their career-technical program: 
    • A Group students will attend A-Tech on Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday
    • B Group students will attend A-Tech on Tuesday, Thursday, and every other Friday 
  • All academic courses will be delivered online through Google Classroom.  However, students will have a class, here at A-Tech, with their academic instructors one period each week.  Students will be in their career technical program for the rest of the day.
  • To comply with Governor DeWine’s order, all students and staff will wear face masks and have their temperature taken upon arrival. Anyone with a temperature at or above 100.4° will be isolated and sent home.
  • Hallways in some buildings will be limited to one-way traffic. 
  • During lunch periods, the students will have plexiglass dividers on the lunch tables to separate them from other students.
  • We have upgraded our campus to include:
    • Air filters in our HVAC equipment that filters out COVID-19
    • Installing additional hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the campus
    • Replacing all toilet flush valves with automatic touch-less flush valves
    • Replacing some sink faucets with touch-less faucets
    • Installing plexiglass dividers in common office areas


COVID-19, like other infectious respiratory illnesses, can also be spread through coming into contact with airborne respiratory droplets (e.g. from coughs and sneezes), through sharing food and beverage utensils, and contact with high-touch surfaces (door knobs, tables, railings, etc.).


  • Practice thorough hand washing for at least 20 seconds.

  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water aren’t available.

  • Cough or sneeze into an elbow or tissue.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
