Weather-Related Procedures

On Tuesday, October 27, we received guidance from the Commissioner of Education on “Weather-Related Closures.” This guidance offers Districts the opportunity to transition into a ‘remote learning’ model rather than a weather-related school cancelation requiring a make-up day in June. The decision to apply the remote learning option is dependent on reported power outages in the community or other factors that may impact our ability to provide an appropriate educational experience. Please learn more about this new communication in Superintendent Silva's October 29 letter.

RPS Quarantine Protocols

Please view Nurse Aaron Crook's letter on the RPS quarantine process and recommendations.

District Presentations to the BOE

Each month our district leaders make presentations on a wide variety of topics to the Board of Education to keep both board members and the general public informed of the work of our district staff, building leaders, teachers, and students. Although all BOE meeting documents can be found on our dedicated BOE page, for your convenience we will provide quick links here to the most recent presentations.
