Message From The Principal

Hi all,

What a strange time we are currently in as a school and a society.  First of all, I hope that every family is safe and has what they need during the social distancing period.  Please call the school if you are experiencing any difficulty getting online or getting other needs met. I can’t be sure we can help with everything, but we will try!  Ms. Dwyer will still be answering the phones and sharing messages with teachers, Dr. Juda and me.

 

Online learning begins Wednesday, March 18 for all RACS students.  Teachers have been hard at work building virtual classrooms and loading content for your children to work on while they are at home.  I know that this will take some getting used to, but students are already familiar with Google Classroom from regular instruction.  

 

You may be wondering how students will log in with email to get lessons.  All students have a school email address that is linked to their classes.  Students should regularly check email to get updates and to communicate with teachers.  You can email teachers directly to be added to a Google Classroom as a parent.

 

Grades will continue to be updated in SchoolTool.  Your child may be asked to do video conferencing with their teacher or to access online resources.  Please continue to monitor your child’s computer use and ask questions along the way.

 

Use the link to the right to sign up for the Remind App if you have not already done so, as school-wide announcements will be shared on the app.  Also, be sure to follow our social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter.  

 

Finally, expect teachers and staff to be calling and emailing your child to check in on them during this time.  We care about you and your children and want to be sure everyone is safe. If you need to update your contact information please call the main office or email Ms. Dwyer.  

 

With all this said, we know that every household is readjusting to a new normal and we will be understanding.  The more quickly students are able to access online instruction, the better they will do for years to come.  

 

Stay safe and stay healthy until we come together again.

With love,

Ms. Doyle
