Responding to Coronavirus School Closure

Dear families,

Under the order of Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health, and the Diocese of Youngstown, Central Catholic is closed. The safety and health of our students is our top priority, as such the CCHS administration closed our school at the end of school day on Friday, March 13. All school events and athletics have been postponed, we will contact families with information on postponed events. We hope the steps we are all taking, taken in solidarity for the health of our community, will help flatten the curve of those impacted by the Coronavirus. We will do our very best to communicate with our families as information is made available to us.  Please stay safe! We will keep all of our families in our prayers.

Office Hours
At this time, our staff is working remotely. We do have plans for LIMITED staff members to be in the building to check messages and mail. Our staff will continue to address any needs of our students and staff, please contact us for any of your needs. If for any reason, a student or family member needs our assistance please call us at 330.478.2131, feel free to leave a message if no one answers. You can also reach our staff by email. A list of email addresses for our staff can be found here: Faculty & Staff Directory.

At-Home Learning during the Coronavirus
Beginning Monday, March 16, we began online schooling. Students should refer to the resources provided by their teachers for their school assignments. All students were instructed to take their books home, if they are missing materials, families can make arrangements to come to school and pick-up those items. Students are encouraged to contact their teachers with any questions, all of our staff is working from home through our closure and are here to help. Our communication will be ongoing.

Join us in Prayer 
Please join us in prayer for all those affected by the Coronavirus. We will continue to keep our students, staff, Crusader family, the community-at-large, our state, and our nation in our prayers. Each day at 9:00 am, while our Crusader family cannot come together in person, we will post a prayer on our Facebook page @FriendsofCentralCatholic. It is our hope we will all come together in prayer.
