School Closure Updates

March 26, 2020


Dear Rocklin Academy Families,


In collaboration with Placer County Office of Education and Placer County Public Health, all public schools in Placer County will continue school closure through May 1, 2020, in order to protect the health and safety of students and our communities. At this time, we do not know if the closure will go beyond May 1st. We will reassess toward the end of April for the remainder of the year. We remain in close communication with Placer County Office of Education and Placer Health professionals and will continue to provide you with updated information.


Although our schools will be closed, we are committed to ensuring continuity in learning. We will continue to provide distance learning with the exception of our scheduled spring break, April 6 – April 10, and professional learning on April 13 and April 14. Instruction will resume on April 15. Therefore, instructional days are as follows through May 1:


• March 27-April 3
• April 15- May 1


We are committed to doing what we can to help our families and staff through this difficult time. Please know that you and your child’s health and wellbeing are our number one priority. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher, administrator, or me with questions or concerns. We continue to add resources to our website, including emergency childcare locations for “essential” workers. 

 

For questions about COVID-19:

  • For general questions about COVID-19 and precautions currently recommended by Placer County Public Health, residents may call the county’s coronavirus information line at (530) 886-5310.
  • Current information about the coronavirus is available at placer.ca.gov/coronavirus and on the CDC website.

 

As I’ve shared many times, but cannot express enough, I am proud of the dedication of our staff who continue to provide learning opportunities for their students (even with juggling working from home with their own families). I am also so very grateful to our families for their understanding, grace, and support as we strive to do our best in these unprecedented times. We know this is not easy for you either as you are trying to support your child’s learning from home. We are resilient. We will get through this together!

 

Warm regards,

 

Robin Stout
Executive Director/Superintendent
