Update on Fall 2020 - Rams Return

TEAM Riverside,

The Board of Directors approved our Rams Return plan last night. Here are the main points of the plan:

  • We have a 4 stage plan. Check it out HERE. We will start the school year at Stage 2. We will monitor the plan closely, with the ability to transition to Stage 3 as soon as we can. We also have a good plan for Stage 1 if we have to go backwards.

  • Stage 2 involves in person learning for P-5 students on a rotation schedule. Group A (to be determined) will attend in person on Monday and Tuesday, and Group B will attend in person on Thursday and Friday. Students will complete teacher-guided work on their "off days." Students with disabilities and without internet services will have access to Wednesday and possibly more days, as well (more details to follow). 

  • Stage 2 involves in person learning for 6-12 students on a rotation schedule. Group A (to be determined) will attend in person on Monday, Group B on Tuesday, Group C on Thursday, and Group D on Friday. Students will complete teacher-guided work on their "off days." Students with disabilities and without internet services will have access to Wednesday and possibly more days, as well (more details to follow). 

  • We will provide an online curriculum (Edgenuity), as well as our own teachers and staff, for those students who choose to start fully online. NOTE: if you start in person, you may switch to online at any time. If you choose to start fully online and you want to switch back to in person, you will need to do so at the quarter for secondary and anytime for elementary, as long as there is enough safe space available.  

  • The Board also approved moving the student start date of the school year from August 31 to September 8. The school year will end on June 15.

  • Here is a Frequently Asked Questions document to provide more details.

  • I have also linked a short video HERE.

Here are the next steps:

  • We will host an informational webinar on Monday, August 17th, at 6:00 PM for elementary families. Click the ZOOM link HERE.

  • We will host an informational webinar on Tuesday, August 18th, at 6:00 PM for secondary families. Click the ZOOM link HERE.

  • If you have questions about our Rams Return plan you want addressed during  the webinars CLICK HERE to submit them ahead of time. Please call your building secretary if you have problems accessing the link.

  • Once you have studied the options, please complete this REGISTRATION SURVEY to let us know what you want to do. This information is critical to our planning, so thank you for completing the survey, which will close at 4:00 PM on Wednesday, August 19th. Please call your building secretary if you have issues with accessing the link.

  • We will send lots of correspondence with further details over the next few days and weeks. 

Rise As One,
