April 2, 2020 Parent Letter

Dear Parents,

This week, we are concluding our “soft roll-out”. We asked students to communicate with their teachers through their district email accounts and online platforms. Some of the platforms used include: Google Classroom, Accelerated Reader (middle school), Study Island, Edmentum, and other mediums. These platforms are specific to each course, so please see individual class/teacher overview in your child’s Google Classroom, or other medium, for further details. 

As teachers are making final preparations for planned instruction, they will provide directions to students/parents so they may successfully navigate any new platforms and websites. Beginning Monday, April 6, 2020, through the end of the school closure, RMHS students will engage in the use of these platforms to begin the delivery of planned online instruction to all RMHS students. If there is an indication that a student is having difficulty navigating the system, we ask parents to contact their child’s teacher immediately. If students/parents are still having concerns, they should contact Tom Podpora or the RMHS Assistant Principal Mr. Hofmann.

Please take a moment to read our April 2 parent letter in its entirety.
