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.
It is important to us to keep you informed about the guidelines related to COVID-19. To accomplish this, please review the State of Connecticut Guidelines for Schools and Parents on COVID document. This document will supply you with RPS' protocols and policy as well as advice for parents related to COVID-19.
