School Closed Due to Coronavirus
Schools will be closed through April 30, 2020
With the continued mandated closure of schools, we will have a second distribution of instructional packets for students for their at-home learning on April 1st. The original 2-week packets previously given out are to be returned on April 1st for teacher review and grading.
Return of the original packets, and pick-up of the new packets will be from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at each school on April 1st. Please contact your child’s school if you have any questions.
Also, if your child has medicine or medical devices that need to be picked up, these will also be available on April 1st between 8-1:30. These items can only be picked up by a parent as a signature is required.
Please note the following changes in delivery of breakfasts/lunches that are being provided by BSD1.
Onsite pickup times at RCES will be moved to 8:30am for Monday and Wednesday of each week. For pickups at RCES Mondays and Tuesdays meals can be picked up on Monday. On Wednesday meals for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday can be picked up.
For bus routes Monday and Tuesday meals will be delivered on Mondays of each week. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday meals will be delivered on Wednesday of each week. Drop off times remain the same for each drop off location.
These delivery and pickup dates and time changes are being implemented to give our food service staff, bus drivers, and volunteers time to handle other day to day activities and to limit exposure and to be more cost effective.
Please note that school has been canceled through April 30, 2020. Plans are being made for your child to return and pickup additional instructional activities. Please be on the lookout for additional information regarding these packets on our website and social media platforms.
