Rochester Superintendent Jana Vance released the following letter regarding the student return to the classroom planned for next week:
Rochester Community Schools is on target to re-open Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Faculty and staff are looking forward to seeing the students and filling our buses and buildings with their excitement and energy.
Our ability to hold in-person classes remains fluid. We must have the faculty and staff to safely and successfully educate your student(s). As we work to educate students we must also work to keep everyone safe and healthy. That being said, it may be necessary to close down school again or even portions of the school: a bus route or classroom for example.
We know that Covid puts extra stressors on all and we are all feeling the exhaustion of the pandemic. Please continue to work to safeguard your student and family as well as our district and community by:
--Do not send your student to school if they are feeling ill or have a fever
--Follow safety protocols by social distancing and wearing masks
--Wash hands often
--Adhere to basic personal hygiene
If we can assist you or your family, please be sure to reach out to your building principal or school nurse.
Thank you in advance for your patience and support.
Jana K. Vance, Ed.S
