Back to School 2020! UPDATE! July 1, 2020
Governor Cooper made an announcement today to delay making a decision as to whether NC schools are on Plan A, Plan B, or Plan C. Governor Cooper also shared that any school that is a year around school and starting soon will need to begin the school year working remotely.
The RCS Re-Entry Team has been working very hard in planning for all three options (Plan, A, Plan B, and Plan C). We have obtained feedback from students, teachers, and our community. A vision, action plan, goals, and a task list are certainly important, but the reality is this- we know that the most important thing is what we are doing everyday which is working to keep our children and staff safe and to give our students the most optimal learning experience we can in an environment that keeps them safe physically and emotionally. We are the #TheChoiceThatRocks! Thank you so much for your support as we navigate these uncharted waters.

Important Information to know before July 1st!
We are excited to provide you information about Back to School 2020! Re-Engage! Re-Connect! Re-Ignite! Our district will provide you updated information on Thursday nights (once a week) on Back to School 2020 beginning July 2, 2020! We have been working hard on getting input from students, staff, parents, and the community about our return to school in Fall 2020! Governor Cooper has provided guidance on three possible plans, one of which NC schools will be required to follow. On July 1st, the Governor will announce the required plan for all NC schools! Please visit www.rock.k12.nc.us for an infographic and link for more information about our safe return to learn.
NC State education and health officials are considering several options for reopening schools in August. They are divided into three categories:
Plan A would reopen schools with minimal social distancing and would be implemented if COVID-19 metrics continue to stabilize or move in a positive direction.
Plan B would require moderate social distancing and 50 percent student capacity in school buildings. This plan would require us to find a way to modify our schedule so that no more than half our students are in the school building at any given time. We would need to implement face to face staggered days with some remote learning from home.
Plan C means there is a significant spread of COVID-19. It would close in-person learning entirely and would require our district to implement remote learning for all students.
RCS wants to provide options for our families no matter what plan is selected by the Governor on July 1st. Therefore, we have a Virtual Learning Option Application (click here) for families that you may complete now if you are interested in registering for a virtual learning option no matter what option the Governor’s office announces on July 1st. If you are interested in this option: please visit our website at www.rock.k12.nc.us and Facebook page for the survey!
Thank you for your support as we all work together as a team to make the new school year a safe return to learn so that we can Re-Engage! Re-Connect! Re-Ignite!
