News and Announcements

New Gateway Start Date
Dear Rocklin Academy Gateway Families,

Our school building had a key fire inspection this afternoon. The result of this inspection is that there are some important fire and health safety requirements that need to be completed before we can safely have students occupy the building. To provide ample time to put these pieces in place, we need to delay our start date. Meet the Teacher will be held on Tuesday, September 2, and the first day of school will be Wednesday, September 3.

Everything is in place to meet the safety standards required by the City of Rocklin. The inspection and approval is a process, not a single event. The construction timeline remains on track for completion by August 27, and we should have occupancy shortly after that date. We will need help over the Labor Day weekend to move in supplies, curriculum, and furniture. Be watching for a sign up to come out with ways you can help our school be ready for the first day.

The revised calendar is attached. As you can see, we have made up the four instructional days. Please know, we understand the complications this may cause for your family. We also understand that you may already have plans for the make-up dates. Our current Independent Study policy allows flexibility for this if needed. You can find the policy in our Parent/Student Handbook.

Thank you for all of the outpouring of support we have received. It’s encouraging to know that while there is frustration at the delay, our families are understanding, and know that this is out of our control. You have shown that you are able to look past a short term problem to the long term benefits our educational program will have for your students. Thank you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

Gateway Update, 08/05/14
Rocklin Academy Gateway Families,

Our fabulous teachers started work this week, and we are diving deep into professional development. I am thrilled with the teams we have in place; they are going to do amazing things for your kids! In addition, a group of staff and volunteers have been setting up all the iPads for our students to use on the first day of school. We are going to have a beautiful facility, the latest technology, a great curriculum, prepared teachers, a large and hardworking staff, professional administration, and kids ready to learn.

Last night, along with our Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, Board Chair, and other members of our team, I met with the contractor working on our Rocklin Academy Gateway school. We reviewed the work left to be completed on the building and discussed the timeline. Because of safety equipment on backorder, the schedule has been pushed out a week.

To leave room for final approval, we have adjusted our start date to August 27. California schools are required to be in session 175 days. Because Rocklin Academy typically exceeds this requirement by 5 days, this allows us some flexibility in revising our calendar. Attached is the draft revised calendar, pending Board approval. Please note the changes for Meet the Teacher and Back to School Night, as well as the additional day of school on Monday, November 24.

Thank you in advance for your flexibility and your understanding. Our school is going to be a phenomenal place of learning for students. We are going to have a great year!
