Rosewood ROARS

Adventure awaits ....I's OUR time to ROAR Sept. 18, 2020

Our adventure begins...

Dear Rosewood Families,

We have just completed our first 5 day week of the school year and it was AMAZING! What a joy to see our kids smiling eyes and excitement at being in class, whether in person or virtually. Their enthusiasm for learning is a delight.


Students in grades 3-5 started bringing their laptops home this past week. Students without a signed Technology Form will not be able to bring it home until a parent or guardian completes it. K-2 students will be bringing home their laptops this week. Teachers in all grades will begin to assign work sung their laptops for their at home learning days.

Please make sure that your child completes their school work on the at home learning days to be counted present for that day.


B day families, students will be attending tomorrow (Monday) and then Wednesday and Friday. A day families, this week students attend on Tuesday and Thursday.


Have a fantastic week.


Sincerely,

Your proud Principal,

Deborah Greenwood


Please stay safe and healthy, by social distancing, washing your hands frequently and staying home if possible. THANK YOU

Safety precautions

Please do not send your child to school if they are sick. If anyone in your family is exhibiting symptoms of Covid -19 or may have been exposed please call school and talk with Nurse Tammi. Keeping our school healthy and safe it a true TEAM effort.

Please remember that students cannot wear open toed shoes, backless shoes or flip flops to school. Children are going out for recess and Physical Education. Those foot coverings are not safe for outdoor school activities. Thank you for your support.

Free and reduced lunch applications

Please fill out the Free and Reduced Lunch application below if your family needs that extra support. The application is for all families including those in the virtual program. Please note that the free lunch and breakfast program that the district is offering currently until the end of December may not be available in January.

We want to ensure that if that program is not a possibility in January that our families that need the support have it in place already.

Free Breakfast and lunch

Rock Hill Schools will be offering free breakfast and lunch to ALL students until tentatively December 31. Students already have access to free breakfast in the morning. For lunch, students just let the teacher know that they are getting a school lunch.

Please do not forget to send the form back to school, if your family needs meals for the at home school day.

Car drop off and pick up

Please don' forget your car tag at dismissal. We do check IDs if someone does not have it to verify that the our kids are going home safely. If someone other than a parent picks up the student please remind them that we will check their ID for safety.


This year, for health and safety, staff are not opening car doors for students. When it is safe for everyone then we can resume this practice. THANK YOU for your understanding.

Technology Fee and laptops

There have been questions regarding the district technology fee. Hope this helps to clarify, the district has a $35.00 technology fee that parents are asked to pay. This fee is similar to an insurance policy , it covers accidental damage for a students laptop once during the school year.

Our 1-5 students, that have returned signed technology documents will be bringing home their laptops next week. Please make sure that your student brings the laptop and power cord back on their next in school day. Should a student misplace the cord it is a $35.00 cost and is NOT covered under the technology fee above.

We will notify Kindergarten families when their student laptops will be coming home.

Fall into Reading

There seemed to be many glitches in trying to sign up for this event. We will reschedule this event for October. The new date will be in the Rosewood ROARS next week.

Thank you.

Change of transportation and dismissal

Please keep in mind that if you have to change your child's transposition, that request must be in writing per district policy. We cannot accept phone calls or email requests.

We also, cannot release students after 2:00 as we are preparing for dismissal.


Attendance

When students are not in school for their off or C day their attendance will be counted. Students in 4th and 5th grade will log in to Canvas and take the quiz labeled "attendance". Students in 4K-3 attendance will betaken on the work that they have completed on the C or off day. Virtual students attendance will be taken by 8:15 each day. Once things have settled, the district will make modifications as needed.
