RUSD Schools Closed for the Year

04/16/2020

On April 16, Gov. Tony Evers announced the extension of the Safer at Home order through May 26. The order mandates that all K-12 schools remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.
We are sad to learn that we will not be able to welcome our students back this year, though we want you all to remain safe and healthy. While we cannot return to our classrooms, we will continue to support our families. More information will come as we have answers.

Here's what we know at this point: 

Learning at Home

K-8 Students
We encourage families to continue to utilize the educational resources on our website. In addition, your child's teacher(s) will continue to stay in contact and provide additional learning activities and lessons through the remainder of the school year. 

High School Students
High school students can continue to utilize the ACT prep packet and enrichment materials available on the website as well as learning materials provided by individual teachers. Beginning Monday, April 20, for-credit packets in all core content areas (math, science, English, social studies and health) will be available on the website and at all meal distribution sites. We are finalizing decisions around credit attainment, support for our graduating seniors and additional learning options. Watch for more information soon.

Summer School
We are currently working to develop a summer school plan and will provide more information as we finalize that plan.

Meals for Students
RUSD staff will continue to serve free meals to our community for the remainder of the school year. That information can be found here. We anticipate making some changes to our meal distribution services in the coming days. More information soon.

Support Services
RUSD support staff has developed student and family activities to promote social/emotional learning for students of all ages during this closure. Click here to see what's available. Additional resources for families are available on our website.

Refunds for field trips, activities and spring sports
The District is working to provide refunds to all families who have paid for a field trip, activity or spring sport that will no longer take place. Click here for more information. 

Picking up my student's belongings
District staff is working to develop a plan for families to pick up personal belongings from school, in accordance with safety guidelines. We will provide more information as soon as we are able. 

Other questions will likely arise. Please visit our website often and continue to check out our Frequently Asked Questions as we will update often.

Thank you for your continued support and patience during these challenging times. We value your partnership to ensure our students remain engaged with learning at home. 

Remember - we're here to support you! Stay safe and healthy at home.
