Out of State Travel Reminders

During this recent surge in COVID cases across the state and country, we are discouraging all out of state travel. If you and your family travel out of state for any reason, please following the Travel Order, per Governor Baker, linked here. To paraphrase this law, if you travel out of state:

  • Your return date to MA is considered "Day 0". Please quarantine you and your children. Students can return to school on Day 11. You can shorten the length of your quarantine by having your student tested (PCR test only) on day 5 of your quarantine. If your student has a negative PCR test and no symptoms, your student can return on Day 8.

Thank you for doing your part to stop the spread so we can keep our schools open.

Overdue Library Books

RO just reopened our library. Our students can now access our entire inventory online and reserve books remotely. Our librarians are delivering books to students. All returned books are quarantined and disinfected. We have created an internal "Door Dash" for books at RO.

If you have any RO (or Parkview, Center or Moreau Hall) books in your house, please return them to RO as soon as you can. Thank you!

Ms. Yee's 5th graders compete with her in a Kahoot "Can you beat the teacher?" math review game. It was a close match, but the students prevailed in the end. This was so fun!

STAR Assessment: This Week & Next Week

If you have a remote only student living in your home, please do not assist him or her with the STAR Math and Reading Assessment. We are administering this screening assessment to all RO students this week and next. This assessment provides our teachers with a way to monitor and assess student growth in reading and math since this start of this year. It's important for our instructional planning that teachers have a true sense of what each student can do on their own, so please no helping students with this. Thank you.
