Dear Fabulous Families,

Thank you so much for your patience during this challenging time. We have received many positive emails and responses and we thank you for them; they’ve made our days a little bit brighter. We really appreciate your support during these unprecedented times and know how stressful this all is for all of our families. We acknowledge that this has been a challenging time for everyone, including teachers and administration. We are working hard to try and support everyone. 

As a staff, we have been working to come up with a timeline and the best way to work with all students in an equitable way. We have heard from some parents who would like more online connections with their teachers. Please note that some staff members are still learning how to use video conferencing technology and we are working to support each other to learn. These decisions have been made as a staff collectively and these are not mandates made by Ms. Bagby-Ellison, administration, or the district. We have been working together as a cohesive team. Ms. Bagby-Ellison has been giving us every opportunity to decide collectively how best to support the students. Teachers have the option of meeting virtually with students at their discretion beginning next week. 

Please continue to read your teacher’s and all school-wide messages regarding technology. 

We are working on using an instructional platform that will be accessible to every student and hope to have this available sometime after spring break. Please be patient with us as things are rapidly changing. We are all learning and figuring this out together. 

Please note that the district is working hard to ensure that all students will receive a Chromebook. There will be more information to come. We will update you as soon as we know more. 

Thank you for your continued support. We will all get through this together. Redwood Heights strong! 

Stay healthy and safe!

In Partnership,

RHS Teachers, Admin, & Staff
