Expanding the 6-12 Hybrid Program

Dear RPS Students and Families,

This year has been hard. The realities of this global pandemic have been isolating and stressful for so many of us. We hope that you have been reaching out to stay connected with friends, family and school staff during this time (safely, of course). 

We would like to follow up on the announcement from Governor Walz that middle schools and high schools across Minnesota can expand their hybrid or in-person programs. As you already know, we are resuming our one-day per week secondary hybrid program starting next week, and we are excited about the opportunity to take our hybrid program to the next level, allowing even more in-person time for students in grades 6-12. We have already started making plans to expand the program safely and effectively. 

Here is a brief timeline of the steps we are taking to expand the hybrid program:

  • From Feb. 19 until March 5, we will be working with the teachers and staff at our schools to develop a comprehensive plan for the safe expansion of our hybrid program at RMS, RHS and RCEP. 
  • From March 8-12, we will be communicating our plan to families and asking you to complete a survey with your enrollment preference, choosing between expanded hybrid or full distance learning. 
  • From March 15 through spring break, we will use the survey information to plan student schedules and bus routes.
  • Shortly after spring break, we will launch the expanded hybrid program. 

Please continue to check your email or school website for updates as we work through this timeline—especially when the family survey is released the week of March 8. It is critical that we know which students are participating in the hybrid program and which students will remain in distance learning.

As always, please contact your school at any time if you have questions or concerns. We are all here to support you. We are in this together.
