Dear Parents,

We just finished our first full week of school and getting in the swing of things. Beginning next week teachers will rotate through the classroom pods for instruction. Everything else will remain the same, with students staying in their classroom with their pod of classmates.

We are working hard to keep kids distanced and adhering to our safety protocols. We are asking for your help in reinforcing these protocols at home. Please have a conversation with your child(ren) about the importance of mask wearing, hand washing/sanitizing and physical/social distancing.  The more careful we all are at school and at home, the longer we’ll be able to stay in the school building! Thank you in advance for your help with this. 

Have a great weekend!

Marie Soucy

Notes:

Fall Open House: We will be holding our open house virtually this year during the week of October 5th. One grade level will be scheduled per night. Teams will send out more specific information.

PowerSchool: If you haven’t completed your child’s enrollment forms in PowerSchool, please do so as soon as possible. All enrollment forms are being done through PowerSchool. Please see the Returning Student Letter for instructions. There is also more information in the slide show attached here: PowerSchool - Returning Student Enrollment Express Slide Deck (1).pdf 

Daily Health Assessment: Another friendly reminder that you must complete a health assessment each morning before your child enters the school building.

Masks & Busses: Students must be wearing a mask in order to get on the bus in the morning. Please do not send your child out the to bus stop without one as they will not be allowed on the bus without one.

Dear Parents,

It has been great to be back in the school building this week with your children and I am so proud of all of them. They have done a fantastic job following all the new guidelines. The students are remaining socially distanced from one another, they are keeping their masks on all day, and have had a positive attitude about being back at school.  They have exceeded my expectations and I am so proud of all of them. Please commend your child(ren) as they have all been Awesome!

Have a great weekend,

Marie Soucy

Dear Parents,

We have had a few very busy weeks here at RJH getting ready for the return of the students. Now we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the kids! Below is a lot of information for you. I strongly encourage you all to take the time to also read the Re-entry Plan along with the RJH Student Handbook, and the Rye School District School Reopening Website. If you have a question, you can probably find the answer in one of those resources. 

Be on the Lookout: for information from your child’s teachers today. You will be receiving videos to watch with your child, along with schedules and other pertinent information for the start of school.

Remote Students – Will also be receiving information and schedules from their advisors by the end of the day today. This will include instructions on when and how to log in to class. Students should be prepared to log in to homeroom with their advisor by 8:10am on Wednesday, 9/9.

  • Packets of materials to get the remote leaners through the first few weeks of school have been put together and can be picked up Friday (9/4) or Tuesday (9/8).  Packets will be labeled, in the front lobby for you to pick up at your convenience. The lobby will be opened from 8am – 4pm on those days. If you are new to the school, there is a chromebook with these materials.

 

Masks: Students must have a mask on before entering the building. If they do not have one, one will be provided for them. At this time, we are not allowing gaiters as a face covering option.

First week of School: Friday, September 11th will be an in school learning day. All Fridays following will be remote.

Enrollment Forms: New this year: All enrollment forms will be done through PowerSchool. Please see the Returning Student Letter for instructions.
