Staff and Students,

Here is a copy of the message that will go out tonight to your parents.

Please let me or your teachers know if you have any questions or concerns.

This is your principal, Russell Vernon, with an important COVID-19 update as we prepare for in-person learning beginning January 21st for students. Grades Prek-5 will attend five days a week on Plan A. Grades 6-12 will attend school on Plan B (AA/BB Schedule). Parents have a choice for a remote learning option also. If you would like to choose this remote option, please contact our school for a MOU form due by January 8, 2021. If you previously submitted a remote learning MOU and choose to continue this option, you do not need to submit a new MOU form.


Any student returning on January 21st will need to have an attestation form completed by January 21st. You may find this attestation form on our district and school website. Please complete this form for each of your children and submit no later than January 21st. Even if you have completed one of these forms earlier in the year, this is a new requirement for the updated safe return to learn plan.


View our COVID-19 Updates by clicking on the RCS CARES ABOUT YOUR SAFETY icon on the district webpage. Please remember all students and staff must continue to follow our current safety procedures and guidelines which include wearing a face covering properly over your nose and mouth at all times. In addition, students and staff will practice social distancing and washing hands frequently. For more information about our safety protocols, please visit our district website and our school website.
