In RCSD we value feedback and want to continue working together to plan for success and ways to adapt to the challenges posed by COVID-19.  We need your feedback to understand what worked, what didn't work,  and what supports are required to support learning in 2020-2021. On Tuesday, you will receive a Distance Learning Survey. Please take some time to provide feedback and share your perspective. Please complete the survey by June 1.

Please take the day to play tomorrow so it feels like a three day weekend. You all deserve a break!
