This upcoming Monday, March 15th will be an Online Learning Day for all students. So that you can support your child to be most successful in learning that day, I wanted to let you know what to expect.

  • Lessons will be designed for the student to be able to learn independently for the day.
  • Students should follow their B-day schedule of classes.
  • Teachers will check messages during the day but may not be available to immediately respond.
  • Target time for completing each lesson is 45-60 minutes per class.
  • Lesson will be titled, School Closure Lesson.
  • Students will be in their quarter 4 Connections courses.
  • Students who have any difficulty in completing the assignment will be allowed extra time for submission.

If you or your child have any questions regarding Monday's plan, please contact your child's teacher for more information.

RMS Parent/Stakeholder Feedback Interviews
