News & Announcements
As both Lake County and Ohio continue a phased-reopening plan, is it important to remember that COVID-19 is still present. As of May 14, LCGHD has had 210 of its residents test positive, and sadly, eight have passed away. As testing opportunities gradually increase, it is expected that the number of those testing positive will increase as well. This means it is more important than ever to continue to follow basic safety principles as we begin to move around in our community.
Device collection will take place at Paradigm, 6465 Center Street (located on the Mentor High School campus). Please view the collection information to find out what date and time your child(ren)'s device(s) are due.
Opportunities to pick-up and drop-off school and personal items will happen on a staggered basis for families. We ask that you come to school on the day of the week designated based on the first letter of a child's last name.
Please make sure your current email address and phone number are correct in the Parent Portal (Infinite Campus) so that we are able to reach you.
