Thank you for your extraordinary support over the past several weeks. We are grateful for the on-going messages of support and encouragement as we embark on Remote Learning. While this particular style of teaching and learning is not ideal, we want to assure you that we will continue to work together to provide learning opportunities for your child throughout the entire Remote Learning Period.
Reed-Custer will begin mandatory Remote Learning on Monday, April 13th. Our RCMS Staff is preparing remote learning activities to help engage our students during this unprecedented time. If you have the technology and WIFI capabilities at home to access E-learning, please make sure your students understand they will need to use their rc255.net Google account to access Google Classroom and other educational supports. Directions for how to log into their account are posted below. If you do not have computer access, you can utilize our curbside pick-up of hard copy materials for your student’s classes, or check out a school issued device.
RCMS will hold virtual classes on Mondays (Periods 1-5) and Tuesdays (Periods 6-10) of each week. However, please note there is no reason for a student to “attend” a virtual meeting for their Lunch, Study Hall, or Panther Time periods. If a teacher assigns work for his/her course, it should be submitted by Friday of that week.
The District would also like to acknowledge that this is a difficult time for all, and we are still here to support your child as much as possible. Please visit our Family Support Page for additional information.
Remember, communication is critical during Remote Learning. We encourage you to ask questions and express concerns with your teachers, just as you would in the traditional school setting. Your teachers and administrators are here for you. We are all in this together!
If, at any time, you or your child has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Mr. Klover. We hope that all of our families are safe and healthy!
