We are writing to remind families about some important dates and transportation events that are coming up over the next few days. If you have any questions, please reach out to your student’s main office.
1) District-wide Emergency Early Release Drill, Friday, October 8: Each year the entire RCS school district must complete an emergency early release drill that requires us to evacuate our students and staff approximately 15-minutes before their dismissal time. This drill helps prepare us in the case of an emergency that would require us to transport our entire district home or to another location prior to the end of the school day. Our drill is set for this Friday, October 8, 2021. In working with transportation to get the students home as soon as possible, here are the plans for each building:
Middle & High School: Students will be released at 1:42 PM. Albany CTE students will be released from CTE 20 minutes earlier on this day in order to be back at RCS for dismissal.
AWB & PBC Elementary Schools: Students who get picked up will be released at 2:20 PM and students who take the bus will be dismissed starting at 2:35 PM. Due to the nature of the drill, please remember that students will be getting home early and for students in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, someone does need to be home to get them off the bus. The after-school childcare program will be held in both PBC and AWB.
2) The entire RCS District is closed next Monday, October 11 for the federal holiday.
3) Tuesday, October 12: Staff Development Day, Early Dismissal PK-12.
Elementary Schools: On Tuesday, October 12, the day ends at 12:30 PM. Parent pick up will begin at 12:05 PM and bus dismissal will start to be called at 12:15 PM. It is important to note that PM Pre-k students will not be coming to school that day and AM Pre-k students will be dismissed with the rest of the grades. The after-school childcare program will be held in both PBC and AWB.
Middle and High Schools: Students will dismiss at 11:07 AM, there will be no PM CTE this day.
