The safety of our students and our staff will always be our top priority,” said RIMSD Superintendent, Dr. Reginald Lawrence.

Staff will use Monday and Tuesday to prepare for the switch to full remote learning. Students will need to log on to full remote learning starting on Wednesday.

Full remote learning will extend through Monday, January 18, 2021, to allow for a safe quarantine period through the winter holiday season.

All schools will return to a blended learning on Tuesday, January 19, as long as it is safe to at that time.

Meal distribution will continue as usual each day the week of November 16, but starting Monday, November 23, the meal distribution will revert back to the Monday and Thursday 3-day meal kit schedule.
