  • RCSD July Community Update: 7/23/21

    I hope you and your families are having a wonderful summer! Back to School: I’ve been hearing from quite a few of you asking about what school will look like in the fall. The simple answer is that we’re not entirely sure. We have not received any guidance from the State as of yet; we are hopeful that they will issue some soon. I can tell you that we are expecting and planning that our schools will be fully open with no remote programming. As soon as we receive any information, I will communicate that out to the community.

  • RCSD Community Update: 6/25/21

    Phew. We made it. While I have enjoyed sending these weekly missives to the community, I have most certainly not enjoyed the driving force behind them. I believe that you will not be hearing from me nearly as often next year. However, I do intend to continue with frequent District-wide communications.

    I hope everyone will turn out in droves this Sunday at 11:00 a.m. for the Class of 2021 graduation float parade. The 10-float parade starts at the train station, makes its way down Purchase Street, winds its way around Fireman’s Circle, then proceeds down Milton Road before ending in front of the High School on Parsons Street. We hope the whole community will come out to cheer on our seniors.
