Parents and/or Guardians,
I want to take an opportunity to thank each of you for your help and support during the start to a very unique school year. There have been many hours of planning to prepare for a school year that we knew would be full of challenges, with one of our top challenges being to provide the best educational setting for all of our students, and teachers, to be successful.
However, as we complete our first grading period it is evident the majority of our students who are receiving instruction through remote learning are not being academically successful. Of the 62 students who chose to receive virtual instruction, 59% are failing one or more subjects at the end of the grading period.
At this point we feel that face-to-face instruction is essential for our students to be truly successful, therefore, the Rivercrest School Board met Tuesday evening, October 6, 2020, and voted to suspend remote learning effective Friday, October 16, 2020, except for students who are required to quarantine. Students who were using remote learning as their method of instruction will need to choose one of the following options:
- Return to school for in-person instruction on or before Monday, October 20th.
- Withdraw to homeschool
- Request transfer to a district that offers remote learning
Campus administrators will begin contacting the parents and/or guardians of remote learning students over the next few days to discuss available options. If you have any questions about your child’s return to campus, please contact the campus principal.
Thank you for your support and please know that our goal is for all our students to be academically successful.
