2020-2021 School Calendar, Start & End Times & Schedules
RUSD will follow the 2020-2021 school calendar even though we are remote. You can find that calendar here.
Remote Learning Success
During remote learning, students will experience online learning from their classroom teacher through a combination of synchronous (live teaching via video/Google Classroom) and asynchronous (independent assignments like homework) learning. Students will be following a schedule that is similar to their face-to-face schedules but reduced for an online format (see above). Teachers will be teaching live lessons and helping students to work through the new material. For Asynchronous Learning on Wednesdays for middle and high schools, each class provides 30 minutes of asynchronous instruction that connects to prior/future learning. Students are expected to be working on a new assignment from their teacher or finishing up work they haven't completed yet. Students will be able to contact their teachers through Google Classroom or email during office hours if they have questions or require assistance.
Remote Learning/Livestreaming update
Beginning March 1, some RUSD students will begin to transition back to in person learning.
Student Re-entry Timeline
- March 1: Grades PreK-5, 6, 9, 12
- March 8: Grades 7, 11
- March 15: Grades 8, 10
Therefore, remote learning will look a little different:
- Students in school in person, will log into class on their Chromebooks.
- Students who remain learning from home will log into class from their Chromebooks and follow along via livestream with their current classroom teacher and classmates.
- Students will follow the in-person school-year/school-day schedule.
We have adjusted attendance guidelines for how attendance will be taken by teachers during remote learning. Click here to review updated guidelines. On occasions in which your child is unable to participate in synchronous (live) online learning, please inform your child’s school as soon as you are able. All other attendance reporting or questions will be the same as in previous years. For example, if your child is ill and cannot participate in remote learning, please call your school’s attendance line and report your child’s absence.
