CPS COVID Update for Families 1-13-2022

On January 13th, Superintendent Yearwood sent a message to all CPS families regarding masking and morning self-checks. See below for important details.

  1. A temporary mask intervention will be in place starting Tuesday, January 18 through Friday, February 4.
  2. We are asking families to help reduce the amount of contact tracing required due to exposure. Please complete the morning self-checks with your scholar prior to sending them to school each day. If your child has any of the symptoms on the checklist, please keep them home. With the current community spread and exposure, you should review your scholar’s symptoms daily as though they have been exposed. Additionally, please stay home if you have a pending COVID test until you receive the results.

RBHS Course Fair Update

Good afternoon Rock Bridge Families –

This email is to make you aware of some changes to our upcoming Course Fair on Tuesday, January 25th. This year’s event will now be a Virtual event held from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

The Counseling Department will be hosting a Registration Parent Meeting at 5:00 p.m. immediately preceding the Course Fair for parents who would like more information about the registration and course selection process. Counselors will be available for Q&A during the Course Fair sessions.

The Course Fair is the perfect opportunity for you/your student to learn more about the variety of elective course offerings available at Rock Bridge and the Career Center, as well as hearing directly from teachers about class topics and expectations, and the differences in rigor and time commitment between AP, Honors, and on-level courses.

Student course requests will be final on March 3, 2022 and elective schedule changes will not be made in the fall, so we strongly encourage you to attend this year’s Course Fair to get all the information you need to make thoughtful course selections.

More information about this year’s event can be found on the Rock Bridge Registration webpage: www.cpsk12.org/rbhsregistration under 2022 RBHS Virtual Course Fair in the menu on the left.
