  • Collinwood (includes School of One site)
  • Dike
  • East Tech (includes School of One site)
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt
  • George Washington Carver
  • Glenville (includes School of One site)
  • Halle
  • John F. Kennedy

John Adams and Rhodes high schools are in remote learning Friday as well. 

In a news banner on its website, CMSD said that its welcome center downtown would also be closed to the public this week, (but the stated reason for that closure was repairs, not Covid.)
