RPS Learning Model Proposed Plan

 

December 23, 2020

 

Hello, Folwell Families!   

 

The Rochester Public Schools COVID-19 Advisory Team met yesterday and is bringing a recommendation to the School Board on Tuesday, January 5. This information is subject to school board approval.  We felt it was important for you to have it as soon as possible.  We will be reaching out to you on Monday, January 4 with a mid-year registration form.  This form will help us plan for the upcoming learning models. It is important to note that you will see different grade levels returning at different times.  This comes from the recent announcement about elementary schools opening back up from Governor Walz.  Here is the proposed plan:

January 14-15

No School/No distance learning for all elementary students

(Teacher planning days for future Full In-person Learning model change)

January 18

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – no school districtwide

Note: this is the earliest elementary return date allowed by the Governor’s announcements

January 19-29

·       Grades K-2 return to the Hybrid learning model and students will follow their previous Group 1, Group 2 schedules

(dismissal time is 2:20, 2:25, 2:30 as it was previously)

·       Grades 3-5 will remain in Distance Learning

·       Limited SACC begins for K-2 students on their in-person hybrid days; no SACC on Wednesdays

February 1-12

·       Grades 3-5 return to the Hybrid learning model

(dismissal time is 2:20, 2:25, 2:30 as it was previously)

·       Limited SACC for K-2 students each day and for 3-5 on their in-person hybrid days

March 1
