Thank you for your patience and support as we’ve worked through a most challenging and unusual start to the 2020-21 school year. It is our hope that you find some much needed rest and relaxation during the upcoming winter break. 

We hope to be able to bring students back to RHS for full, 5-day seated schedules at a point during 2nd semester. At this time, our plan is as follows: 

Students will return in a modified hybrid schedule for the first three weeks of January. Since we have 2 Monday dates where school is not in session (Jan 4 and 18), we will be shifting the Maroon, or Monday/Wednesday group into attendance on Wednesday and Friday during those three weeks. The Grey Group will continue to attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Both groups will use Monday, January 11 as a virtual learning day. RTI/C students from Rolla will follow the RHS schedule. RTI/C Sending Schools will continue the current Monday-Thursday schedule upon our return from break.  

During the first three weeks of January, we will evaluate community and district conditions regarding Covid-19 cases. We will work in conjunction with local health officials to determine if it is safe at that point for students to return to a regular, 5-day seated schedule. 

Please continue to do your part in slowing the spread of the virus by wearing masks, avoiding large gatherings, and practicing hand hygiene. It will take all of us working together to make an impact and safely move the needle closer to “normal” for our staff and students at RHS.
