RCE Family Update
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.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Old Locker Room
Chromebooks and digital textbooks made our locker room obsolete. This space has not been used in years.
Removing Locks and Lockers
1st step - remove locks.
District maintenance staff spent days removing the lockers.
Major work was completed over break. Removed floor tiles, locker footings, painted walls, and polished the concrete floor.
We love that the history of this room is preserved under the clear polished concrete.
Baseboards and Furniture Coming
Classes have already started using the space for group work. Furniture will be coming in phases over the next year or so.
If you haven't already, make sure that you download the new SDPC App to get the most up-to-date information for SDPC and RCE.
Even though all meals are free for the 2021-2022 School Year, there are other financial supports available to familes who qualify for meal assistance. Families must reapply each year to receive this opportunity. Only one entry needed per family.
This year will be asking all families interested in buying a Yearbook to please go to the Josten's website to make this purchase. A limited quantity of Yearbooks will be for sale on the day of Yearbook distribution. Reserve your copy in advance!
These documents provide information about creating an account, adding students to existing accounts, and setting up your parent account in Schoology.
This is an excellent resource regarding student policies and procedures for our school for the 2021-2022 school year!
