CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (WOIO) - Cuyahoga Falls City School District announced an option for kindergarteners through 5th graders to return to in-person learning Nov. 16 after an outpour of support from parents and guardians.

The district asked families fill out a survey about two weeks ago, according to the announcement.

Of the nearly 2,300 responses received, 76% of families want K-5 students back in school full time and 56% of families want 6-12 students to attend in-person, all day, two-days per week beginning second semester.

Thus, K-5 students who originally chose Option 1 will return to full-time, in-person learning next Monday.

Students in 6th through 12th grades will continue a hybrid schedule through the remainder of the first semester.

Black Tiger Remote Learning Academy students will also continue to follow their schedule through the first semester.

The district released a second survey for families relating to learning methods for the second semester.

The district asked the survey be filled out and returned by Nov. 11.
