The COVID-19 pandemic has presented school communities with previously unimaginable challenges. At the conclusion of 2019-2020 school year, our school staff set about planning how to safely and effectively navigate these challenges. Building on lessons learned from our sudden shift to virtual instruction last Spring, parent feedback, and guidance from state and local officials, RCS developed both its School Reopening Plan and Continuous Learning Plan (CLP). Our Guiding Principles influenced the development of these plans and continue to affect our decisions in response to not only the threat of COVID in our area, but also in pursuing our goal to effectively educate our students.
Director Stroder outlines important details for the return to in-person learning.
Increased community spread forces RCS to remain virtual through the end of Christmas Break.
Beginning November 16, 2020, K-2 students return in AA/BB hybrid mode. 3-8 students continue Virtual Instruction. Pre-K will resume its Morning/Afternoon Group schedule.
As of January 15, 2021:
- All students will attend virtually through January 29.
- In-person instruction resumes for students in PreK-2 on Feb. 1, 2021.
- In-person instruction resumes for 3-5 on Feb. 8, 2021.
- In-person instruction resumes for 6-8 on Feb. 17, 2021.
