    We’re excited for SUMMER SCHOOL 2021! The K-12 session will be June 2-25. New this year is the addition of a July session for our elementary students which will take place July 6-23. We can't wait to have a great summer of learning with our students! 
     
     
     
     
     
    Miscellaneous Reminders
     
    • Students will be enrolled in the grade level they will attend for the 2021-22 school year (EX: current 5th graders will enroll at RMS as 6th graders, current 8th graders will enroll at RHS as 9th graders). This means that incoming kindergarten students are eligible to enroll as well!  
    • Breakfast and lunch will be provided FREE of charge for all children 18 and under. Transportation will not be provided by the district. However, a shuttle bus between RHS and RMS will be provided. 
    • Students attending summer school must be up-to-date on all required vaccinations for the grade they will be in for the 2021-22 school year. This primarily impacts incoming kindergarten, 8th grade and 12th grade students. CLICK HERE for a summary of these requirements.  
     
    Health Related Protocols
     
    Keeping students and employees safe and healthy while at summer school is our utmost priority! Just as we did during the 2020-21 school year, health protocols will be implemented for summer school to help mitigate the spread of COVID19. As we’ve navigated through this pandemic we have learned best practices and are making some adjustments for summer school based on these and due to the fact positive cases are continuing to diminish.
     
    Below you will find an infographic that summarizes the health-related protocols for summer school. In addition, a full description can be found HERE in the Summer School Health Protocol Handbook. The biggest change from the current school year to summer school will be that masks are no longer a requirement, they are optional. This will be implemented starting May 27.
     
    With masks being optional, modified quarantine (where students can still attend school, but must quarantine outside of school) is no longer an option for us as a district, per the Springfield Greene County Health Department. Therefore, if a positive COVID19 case surfaces, close contacts will be required to complete a traditional quarantine (10 days with the option to test out and return on day 7) unless they are fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated individuals do not have to quarantine as long as they are symptom free. Springfield Greene County Health Department has also indicated when a positive case surfaces at school all individuals in those classrooms (close contacts or not and vaccinated or not) must wear a mask for two weeks while at school.  
     
    Those quarantined during summer school will have the ability to still participate in summer school remotely. Details are located in the aforementioned Summer School Health Protocol Handbook.
