District Summer Update for August 10, 2022

Welcome Cardinal students and families to the final week of summer break!  I hope that you have had time to relax, enjoy your time off and are rejuvenated to return for the 2022-23 school year.  I am your new Superintendent, Jack Cunningham and I am excited to begin this chapter of my career here at Cardinal Local.  I look forward to meeting each of you throughout the beginning of the school year and I am anxious to get to know the community and traditions of both Cardinal Local and Middlefield!!

I wanted to communicate a few items today to make sure that everyone is aware of a couple of events or changes for the 2022-23 school year.

  1.  The district is no longer engaged in the “Early Release Wednesdays” each week.  Buildings will be on regular schedule all week when school is in session.  The district will add a monthly professional development day throughout the year where students will not attend school in the building but will have assignments/learning through Google Classroom and/or “blizzard bags” assignments.  The district will communicate those dates the first couple weeks of the school year.  Those PD days will not begin until the month of October.
  2.  Cardinal High School has now revamped the day schedule back to a traditional 7 period day and moved away from the “block” schedule from the past couple of years.  I am sure that there will be some transitions for both staff and students…Please don’t hesitate to communicate with our administration and staff along the way.
  3.   I hope that you are available to visit the “Back to School Bash” this Saturday from 11:00 to 2:00 at the HS stadium.  Please look over the attached flyer and contact your building or the Board office for questions.

A Message From the Principal:

Dear Cardinal family,
I would like to welcome you all to the new school year at Cardinal High School.  The staff looks forward to meeting and working with each and every student and their families as we partner to help all achieve their academic goals and to continue to develop the proud culture of the Cardinal Local School District.  We are all Huskies and we will continue to “chase excellence” each and every day!
Cardinal High School welcomes all families and school-community organizations to our building.  As stated above, we want to partner with all of you to provide the best educational experiences for our students in a safe and inviting atmosphere.  Please reach out to us at any time to begin those conversations and the collaborative process that will help all reach the intended goal.  
There will be some exciting and significant changes this school year at Cardinal High School.  First of all, our summer work crews have done a fantastic job getting the building ready for the school year.  Also, we have transitioned from a block bell schedule to a traditional bell schedule that will better align with our middle school bell schedule.  The bell schedule is posted on our webpage.  Moreover, early release Wednesdays have been removed from the district calendar and professional development days for the district will be communicated with all very soon.  Finally, we will be using a new mathematics resource for Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II called CPM. A link for this resource is posted on our webpage as well.  
Cardinal High School is a special place.  We are all responsible for developing, practicing, and maintaining the strong culture and pride that is representative of the Cardinal School Community.  Go Huskies!
I look forward to working with all of you very soon.
Take care,
Michael Hall
Cardinal High School Principal

NEW!!! ATTENTION PARENTS & STUDENTS:
We are still in the process of finishing some details in the transition from a block schedule to a traditional schedule for the 2022-2023 school year.  Those details will be finished shortly and student schedules will be available in IC soon.  We apologize for the delay.  Additional information will be updated on the high school webpage.
