Some confusion?... ALL EARLY RELEASE DAYS were removed from the DISTRICT CALENDAR due to changes in the daily school schedule. A regular school day will occur on Fri., Feb. 12th and Thurs., May 6th for all in-person K-12 students and staff. Thank you!
Parent / Teacher Conferences for Geneva Schools for all levels - elementary, MS and HS will be on 2/9 or 2/10 based on the teacher's selection.

With Ashtabula County changing to the red level on Thursday, Oct. 29th, further discussion was held with county officials. After conversation with the Ashtabula County Health Department and other county schools, the Geneva School District will not alter its current school plan at this time. We will continue with in-person classes (4 days a week - Mon., Tues., Thurs., and Fri.). Wednesdays will continue to be a sanitizing and support day. We will continue to monitor any changes and increase in exposure in our schools. Thank you for your support and patience. Please check the website - NEWS or Livefeed for any updated information.
There have been questions concerning potential changes in our in-person plan if Ashtabula County changed in the color coding / level system. The following is part of our plan that is posted on our website. If there is a change, we will work closely with the Ashtabula County Health Department to determine the reason for the change and if any action in our plan is necessary. If after consultation and further recommendations, the following will be followed: If the county goes to a Level RED: Notification will be made by the district (this may not be immediate but we will work closely with the Ashtabula County Health Department), students will go to online education only. Teachers and staff will still report to their buildings with safety precautions observed.
