Ladies and Gentlemen: We have significant issues with school- based exposure at RHS and nearing staffing inability @ RMS. We are tracing exposure and diagnosis to our school classroom and activities. USD 407 will have a snow day Tuesday, 11/24, as we need to absorb the illness that is already out there and reduce the risk to our immune systems and COVID’s impact to all. There will be no assigned remote classes. Please practice all the suggested opportunities to create safety at this time. The week of Nov. 30 remains ON CAMPUS until we see our data develop from this week.
USD 407 is not planning to remote learn/ teach at this time. Many districts across the state are doing so after Thanksgiving, USD 407 is not @ this time. Data changes fast & we must respond if & as necessary. We will remain committed to coming to school so long as we can staff buildings. RSCO data is not good! We beg our community to respond by distancing, gather in smaller groups, please consider restricting travel, wear masks when you are not able to safe distance, practice good hygiene. These practices will give students & staff the best chance to be healthy, stay in school, play sports, & the community to attained those events. We are #OneRussell if we will come together to stay together.
