At that time (April 15th) you may pick the first of two work packets at RMS. This first work packet will contain 2 weeks of work for your student. If you selected to receive work online, your assignments will be posted on our RMS website. The paper & pencil work packet will also be posted on our website. This will eliminate the need to pick it up at school if you have the ability to print it from home, which will reduce your exposure of infection. The second packet will be available on April 29th.
We will average the grades for the three nine weeks grading periods. This will be the final yearly average for your student. If your child is passing at this point, the work packets will be utilized for review, reinforcement, enrichment, and to keep your student engaged in learning while keeping his/her skills sharp. The work will not be graded, and you will not be required to return this work for grades. We also want to reduce the amount of work that changes hands for obvious safety and health concerns. The only work that will need to be returned to the school for grading is for students that are failing a class. This work will be used for grade recovery since there will probably not be a summer school option this year.
The exact times and procedures for picking up work packets at RMS will be posted on our RMS site and our FB page a few days before April 15th. We will try to coordinate with RES & RHS to make is easier for you. We will also utilize our automated phone system to communicate with you. We want to do this in the safest manner possible for all involved (parents, students, and teachers).
Rest assured that all of our teachers are working hard from home at this time to prepare meaningful work assignments for your students. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to keep everyone safe as well as insure that our students have the opportunity to keep learning through this crisis.
Please continue to follow all guidance concerning COVID 19 during this time. Stay safe!
We will get through this together! #rebelstrong
