We have been working diligently in this swift pace to reopen schools as smoothly as possible for our RHS families. Thanks to our Safety Lead Jennifer Wilson and Custodian, Kim Johnson, our school is ready to safely receive our students. Our teachers have been working in their classrooms to create a welcoming environment for our Sammy Squirrels.

Teachers Opt - In Policy:
The MOU between OUSD and OEA allows teachers an option to return or not return to in person learning for the first 7 in person learning days of this new model (March 30 - April 14). I am beyond grateful that almost all of our K-2 teachers have chosen to return in person. Your teacher will communicate with you if they will not return to in-person instruction for the first seven in-person days to communicate their plan.
Every class will have 3 cohorts:
COHORT A - In person learning on Monday and Tuesday afternoons
COHORT B - In person learning on Thursday and Friday afternoons
COHORT C - No in person learning - will have an optional small group check in with support staff during some afternoons and will have asynchronous work to complete
STUDENT COHORT LIST AND SCHEDULES:
Our teachers will share the student cohort list and class schedule by Friday, 3/26/21 @ 5pm.
IN PERSON HYBRID OPT IN / OPT OUT POLICY:
- You may opt OUT of In Person Hybrid Learning at any time
- You may only opt INTO In Person Learning by certain deadlines. This will give us time to plan and adjust our classroom furniture and supplies
- (K-2) Notify me by Friday 3/26 at noon to start on 3/30
- (3-5) Notify me by Thursday 4/13 at noon to start on 4/19
Movement into cohorts is limited in order to keep them stable for COVID safety.
SIBLING - IN PERSON HYBRID OPT IN / OPT OUT POLICY:
Siblings should be in the same A or B cohort. No other requests for A vs B will be considered. We made these groups based on academic need, balanced groups, Special Ed needs, and siblings. We simply can not accommodate additional preferences. If you want to request a change, please email me directly with the title HYBRID SCHEDULE CHANGE. Feel free to cc your teacher.
Those K-2 teachers who are returning to in person instruction next week have two planning days this Thursday 3/25 and Friday 3/26. On these two days, most K-2 classes will only meet with their teachers for an hour of Synchronous Instruction; the rest of these days will be Asynchronous.
Thank you for your continued patience as we prepare for our favorite little ones!
Peace, love and patience,
