Dear Rock Ridge Staff & Families,
Straight-to-the-point: COVID-19 is surging rapidly and the Rock Ridge School District will be switching to all distance learning in the high schools and all elementary schools beginning on Monday, November 23.
The data continues heading in the wrong direction. The COVID-19 infection rates in the greater community are increasing so rapidly that it is impossible to offer school to students on an everyday basis. We are losing both students and staff to COVID-19 and quarantine. Currently, nearly 1 in 11 students is in quarantine, unable to attend school. We also currently have 30 staff members in quarantine. As of Tuesday, November 17, we have 8 staff and 13 students who have confirmed cases of COVID-19. This is an increase from just three days ago.
