RCE Family Update

1.17.22 #RCEfamily

2nd Semester!!


I hope everyone has enjoyed the snow! We've all had different experiences with power outages and frozen roads, but I hope everyone had some time to spend with family!


Just a few announcements as we get into the second semester of school.


Snow Day Tomorrow, 1/18


A reminder that tomorrow is an e-learning day. RCE is still covered in snow/ice. Students will need to check Schoology for assignments. There will be no live WebEx lessons tomorrow. Teachers took time on Friday to explain to students where to find assignments.


RCE Covid Reporting


If your child has tested positive for Covid or has become a close/household contact of a positive case, please fill out the form below. We will be in touch by the end of the day. Please only call the school to report if you're having issues with the form.


Covid Reporting Form


It's very important that we're aware of any cases to keep spread at RCE low. Please continue to stay safe and healthy outside of school!


New RCE Nurse


Please welcome Michelle Gregorek to RCE!


Nurse Gregorek brings a wealth of experience as a school nurse and has done a phenomenal job transitioning into this position during a tough time. If you need Nurse Gregorek, her e-mail address is: MichelleGregorek@pickens.k12.sc.us


End-of-Year Test Dates


May testing dates have been added to our website calendar (link to calendar). We will add more important dates to this calendar as we approach the end of the year.


6th Grade Chromebook Distribution


Beginning Monday, Jan. 24th we will be taking up 6th Grade Chromebooks. Students will be receiving a brand new 14 inch Lenovo Chromebook, charger, and case. These are top of the line with the latest technology. We will take up the current Chromebooks, chargers, and cases starting the 24th. If a student is missing any of the 3 items above they will be invoiced the amount necessary. All students will need to take off stickers they have added.


Some 7th and 8th grade students will receive the current 6th grade Chromebooks to replace old, slow, and broken devices.


Mon. 24th-- Bratcher & Joplin

Tues. 25th-- Powers & Amberg

Wed. 26th-- Dunn & Lee

Thurs 27th--- Livingston, Qualkinbush, & Spencer


New Flexible Learning Space


We are in the process of converting our locker room area into a flexible learning space. The locker room became obsolete years ago, due to Chromebooks and digital textbooks. This large area will become a place where teachers can bring classes for group work. Part of the new area will be a makers space for our business classes to work and create. See pictures below!


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at thomaspreisig@pickens.k12.sc.us.
