RCSD District-Wide Closure Effective March 16, 2020
Based on guidance from Placer County Public Health, Placer County Office of Education, and in consultation with our School Board Members, we are closing all RCSD schools effective Monday, March 16th due to increased risk of community spread of COVID-19. Additionally, all schools in Placer County will be closed during this time period.
All Roseville City School District schools will be closed through April 13, 2020. As of now, school would resume on April 14th, after the regularly scheduled RCSD Spring Break. This closure includes RCSD preschools and afterschool care. We commit to communicating with you on a weekly basis during this closure.
The District Office will maintain regular business hours until further notice.
This document has optional enrichment resources for students to utilize while at home if you choose. This is a great time for children to read independently and for families to read together. During our District closure, RCSD staff will not assign any mandated or graded assignments. We will not be providing instruction while the schools are closed.
We will provide free meals to our students at all of our schools on Monday and Tuesday at the regularly scheduled times. Only schools that currently serve breakfast will be serving breakfast on Monday and Tuesday. There may be a need to consolidate the Food Service program starting on Wednesday. We will communicate any changes to you by Tuesday evening.
Health and Safety Reminders
Students should stay home and minimize social contact as much as possible to keep peers, caregivers, and adult family members safe. Students should not congregate together in groups as the reason schools are closed is to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Children have not been shown to be a high-risk group for serious illness from this virus. However, they can transmit the virus to those most vulnerable. Public health officials recommend that families make arrangements for childcare during closure that avoid leaving children with elderly people who are more vulnerable to the impact of the virus.
As our community navigates this difficult time, the safety and wellness of our students, staff, and families continue to be our first priority We thank you for your support and understanding.
