Distance Learning Message



August, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope you are enjoying the summer months during this historic time.  As I am sure many of you heard, all of our RBUSD Alternative Education Programs will begin in a distance learning format.   Although this remote learning removes physical campus collaboration, our teachers and staff are even more committed to connect, engage, and lead our students in learning.  I am confident our shared approach in student high expectations and accountability, will only produce academic success and social emotional growth during this unprecedented time.  I look forward to the upcoming 2020-2021 school year and hope to see you all very soon.  Please mark your calendars for October 1, which is our Back to School Night.  It is unclear at this time if this event will be in person or held virtually.  Nonetheless, I look forward to showcasing our virtual learning tools and our excellent staff members.

Registration/re-enrollment does not require visiting the school site.

This year, it is paramount that we utilize the many technology tools at hand to communicate.  This said, we are in this together to proactively learn new approaches to meet the needs of our learning community.  Please be patient as we navigate these online/virtual platforms together.
