Secondary Students - Semester 1 Exams

As we begin the second quarter of the 2021/2022 school year, we wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with information regarding final exams for semester 1. After careful consideration by our district Curriculum team and feedback from our stakeholder groups, which included students, staff and parents, we have made the decision that there will be NO final exams for students to end semester 1. The schedule of January 12, 13, 14 will stay the same.

Check Out This Tutoring Opportunity!

Chromebook Pickup and Technical Support

As a reminder, all RCS students are required to have a district device for use in the classroom.

If you do not yet have an RCS device, please schedule an appointment by using this link:

Families may use this checklist to ensure an efficient device pick-up.

  • Device deployments will take place at the RCS Administration Center, located at 501 W. University Dr.
  • Directions and available times will be provided during appointment sign-up.
  • For faster service, please arrive with a completed Student Device Loan Agreement.
  • High-school students may pick up their own device, as long as the agreement form is signed by a parent or guardian.

We truly appreciate your support in providing our students with the necessary tools and resources for a productive year of growth and learning.

If you already have your Chromebook device, we strongly recommend viewing these Chromebook tutorials to remind you how to take care of your device and get signed into Zoom:

Getting Logged Into Your Chromebook

For our elementary students or those new to the district, we have a tutorial to walk families through how to access your student’s login information on ParentVUE:

For our secondary students, we have a tutorial that walks students through how to navigate StudentVUE. This will be most helpful to our 6th graders as they now have full access to the platform: How to Use StudentVUE-

Technology Troubleshooting

Just like students new to middle school may get locker jams or our little friends may need help finding their classroom cubby, there may be some virtual snags that happen as we kick-off our new school year. Should you run into any technical issues (that are not Brightspace related), we recommend the following steps:

  1. Visit our district Family Technology Support Page. There are tutorials and information on many of our common technology tools including: ParentVUE and StudentVUE, Zoom, Flipgrid and Seesaw.

  1. If that does not solve your problem, complete a Technology Support Form and our district technology support staff will get back to you as soon as they are able.

  1. If you still have questions or need assistance, please contact Julie Rains at

Pledge of Allegiance Leaders

The Virtual Campus is always looking for tiny patriots that would love to share their voice and lead our classes in the Pledge of Allegiance. Visit our Flipgrid site here and follow the filming directions. Share your video and your child might see their pledge in their Morning Meeting! We are so proud to share that we have over 80 submissions to date! Way to go Voyagers!

NOTE: All videos are moderated and must be reviewed by staff prior to being viewable to other learners so they will not show up right away on our community Flipgrid.
