Weekly Updates, 1-23-22

Hello High School Scholars and Families,

We hope that each of you are continuing to stay safe, healthy and now warm during this time.  Please take a moment to review the weekly updates for this week, January 24-28, 2022.  We will continue with our remote, online distance learning and packets this week.  Our goal is still to return to the building next week, Monday, January 31, for the start of our new semester.  We will keep you updated of any changes.  

First of all, this is the final week of quarter 3 as well as the first semester.  Please use this time to work to make sure that all assignments are completed and turned in for each of your classes.  In addition, we have included the MidTerm Schedule which is slightly different than our normal distance learning schedule.  Please take note and log in as indicated on this schedule.  We will have 2 days of review and study help on Monday and Tuesday, with midterms the remainder of the week.  If you have any questions, please reach out to the individual teachers via email or Google Classroom. 

Secondly, if you are completing packets, please work to make sure that these are completed for the 4 week period and plan to turn packets in when we return on January 31st.  Teachers will hold grades for these students until we return so that you can turn them in to be counted.  

Lastly, we will continue to keep you informed of our in person learning updates throughout this week so please stay tuned.  Have a wonderful week and finish this semester strong.  We cannot wait to see you back in the building soon!

Learning Updates, 1-12-22

Hello High School Scholars and Families:

Please take a moment to review the letter attached from our Superintendent in regards to learning updates.  Out of an abundance of caution for our students, staff and families, River Rouge Schools will now remain online until Friday, January 28, 2022.  

High school students who have been working online will continue to work online via Google Meet and Google Classroom as you have since January 3.  Please continue to follow the distance learning schedule and take advantage of teacher office hours offered for additional support.  

High school students who picked up packets, should continue to work on the packets you received.  These packets cover a 4 week period and no new packets will be needed.  Please continue working and plan to return these packets upon return to in person learning on January 31, 2022.  No new packets are needed for those who already picked up.  If you still need packets for these weeks, you can pick up from the school next week, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  

Please stay tuned on further information as it relates to midterms, close of this semester, and other needed information.  We appreciate your continued support and flexibility as we work to keep every safe.

Temporary Return to Distance Learning

Hello High School Families! We continue to keep you informed on the status of distance learning in our effort to mitigate the spread of the virus. As a reminder, the River Rouge School District has decided to utilize our DISTANCE LEARNING platform from January 3, 2022 through January 14, 2022. There will be NO in-person instruction during this time. Please note: There will be no school on January 17, 2022 in observance of Dr. M.L. King, Jr. Day.

During the distance learning process, high school students will be able to access their school work and receive instructional online support from their teachers for each class period, on our Google Classroom platform and via Google Meet classes following our Distance Learning Schedule daily from 8am to 12pm (see included).

We will also offer instructional work packets for high school students who are not able to access their work online. The packets can be picked up from the high school lobby during the following dates and times: January 3rd, 4th, and 5th at 9:00am - 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm. Please note: you will not need a work packet if you have internet access and log in daily with your teachers during your designated class times in Google Classroom/Meet.

High school students will receive email notifications from teachers on how to access class, they have already been using the Google Classrooms during in person learning so should be aware of how to access these. We will also include a list of all Google Classroom codes on the River Rouge High School page. As an additional layer of support, each high school teacher will hold office hours for assistance, tutoring, and any other needs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1-3pm. These links will be forthcoming.

Families can also pick up breakfasts and lunches during distribution times. Please continue to review your email, phone communication, and updated posts for any additional information in the upcoming days. We hope that you continue to stay blessed, stay safe and in appreciation of a New Year! Thank you.

Asynchronous Days Monday & Tuesday

Greetings High School Scholars and Families:

The district has decided to shut down the buildings on Monday and Tuesday of next week to ensure every building will be deep cleaned to help mitigate the spread of COVID.  These two days will be asynchronous for students.  Students can access Google Classroom via phone, computer, laptop, or gaming systems to review and submit make-up work.  No new work will be assigned however, students should check in Google Classroom for make up and attendance.  Teachers will also post their office hours for both Monday and Tuesday so students can get support if needed. 

We encourage you to continue to stay safe and healthy as well as enjoy your Holiday next week!
