Dear Families of Students Receiving Special Education Services,
Our Cloverleaf staff recognize the significant impact this state mandated closure will have on our entire community, students, families, and staff. While many things may remain uncertain, what we can say with certainty is that our district staff cares deeply about your student and recognize families of students receiving special education services will be uniquely impacted by these closures. We wanted to acknowledge that you and your family may be experiencing significant impacts in your home life.
Special Education staff are working diligently to provide materials and resources to our students and families during the closure. We are also rescheduling IEP meetings to occur online or via phone beginning March 30th. Your child’s case manager will give you instructions on how you can participate in the IEP meeting when you are contacted to reschedule.
Take care of yourself, your family, and your community.

News from the Medina County District Library:
Sensory Kits are now located at Children’s and Reference service desks at all library locations (Medina, Brunswick, Lodi, Highland, Buckeye, Seville, and Bookmobile) and can be accessed at any time for use within the library.
They are available for all ages and needs but are geared toward adults and youth with autism or sensory challenges. These kits include items that can facilitate a calming affect for people dealing with sensory issues, such as stress balls, weighted blankets, and noise cancelling headphones. MCDL wants the library to be a safe, calm place everyone can enjoy.
The kits were made possible through funding from Rotary Club of Medina Sunrise and a grant from Autism Speaks.
