Updates and Resources re:COVID-19 and Online Learning

Greetings to our RACS Family,
 
As a result of the Governor’s recent Executive Order, RACS will not have spring break next week as planned and our staff will continue providing distance learning. This will allow our students to have time and support to make up work. More information regarding specific plans will follow from your child’s Principal and Teachers. 
 
Please note that as per the Governor's announcement, we will not be returning to school any earlier than April 15th. The Governor will reassess further school closures at that point. We will review our status on an ongoing basis and update you as we learn more. Grades 3-8 ELA, math and NYSESLAT state testings have been canceled for this year. No word on Regents exams yet and we do not expect to hear for some time.
 
Online learning began on Wednesday, March 18. Please check emails, Remind text and ClassDojo messages from your teachers and principals regularly.
