Sending students back to the classroom in August can cause some reasonable anxiety and a sense of caution. However, it is important for our families to know that RAS has every student's best interest and well-being at the heart of every decision being made. With that being said, we do understand that our families will have some concerns. Please support one another and share how your family is dealing with the uncertainties of post Covid-19 and returning to the classroom.
Understanding that every household is different, there are some common threads that most families can relate to. Hectic schedules, childcare challenges, multiple grade-level student learning or simply over tasked and lack of time concerns are just some of the issues that many families have had to deal with, navigate and find solutions to, in order to overcome these unprecedented times during Covid-19. At RAS, we believe our families are resilient and capable of overcoming most anything with the help and support of community. Sharing our perspectives, ideas, challenges and successes are ways we can support one another during difficult and changing times. Let's begin talking and supporting one another!
