Parent Newsletter: August 13, 2020
NEWS YOU CAN USE!!
We're excited to welcome all of you to the 2020-21 school year as members of the Rawlinson Middle School Patriot Family! Although this isn't the type of start we've wanted, we are anxious to get back to learning together, even if it has to happen in a virtual setting for now. As soon as it's deemed safe, we'll kick off both in-person learning and those activities that make Rawlinson the special community it is.
Next week we will host two exciting events:
Drive-Through Prep Days: (see flyer below) here you will have the opportunity to pick up devices, pick up textbooks, drop off medical paperwork for the nurse and our final last call for last year locker items.
Virtual Open House/Meet the Teacher: (see flyer below) Virtual Open House goes LIVE on Wednesday, August 19 via your email and Rawlinson Social Media. All information will be pre-recorded so you can access it at anytime. Here you will meet your teachers, learn how-to log in on the 1st Day of School, view Principal's message, see the bell schedule, supply list and get NEW information regarding attendance.
Here are a few more reminders:
NISD Back to School Website - Visit this link for the most up to date information about the upcoming school year in NISD. The site is updated daily and will provide parent guidance on accessing Schoology in the next few days.
Instructional Setting Parent Survey - While all students will begin school Aug. 24 through virtual learning that will be in place for at least the first two weeks, all families are asked to indicate their intention to participate in in-person or virtual learning once it's safe to return to campuses.
- Device Distribution Details: Students will need access to some type of internet-enabled device to begin virtual learning Aug. 24. (Smart Phones are not advised) If you need a device, complete the request here: RAWLINSON DEVICE REQUEST
- Device pick up is by appointment, we are calling them in the order they are received.
Students who still have their device from last spring don't need to do anything at this time.
Finally, thank you to the over 1200 Rawlinson families who have completed the online registration or Student Data Validation, this was instrumental in helping us to complete course schedules for next year. Please remember to follow us on Twitter & Instagram @NISDRAWLINSON, don't forget to follow our PTA on Facebook at RawlinsonPTA, and check the school's website where updates will be posted under the Announcements area.
As always, your student's safety is our top priority. We will get through this, as we are, back together better.
