COVID-19 Update (9/17)
Thank you for all that you have done to make the first two weeks of school a success at ROCORI. Without your effort our students wouldn’t be here so THANK YOU!
The year will have challenges but with a solution based mindset we will make it a great year! If you are not aware already, a social media app called TikTok is challenging students nationwide to steal supplies, soap dispensers, toilets, computers as well as other school equipment. Restrooms seem to be the target for obvious reasons. We have had some of this here at the Secondary. We are taking a positive approach with signage, but know we will hold those who vandalize or steal accountable. Knowing where students are going when they leave your room will be important in helping us investigate and deter this unacceptable behavior.
On Monday night at the School Board meeting we introduced our ESSER III spending plan. Please read the letter posted outlining the broad areas of future spending. https://www.rocori.k12.mn.us/uploaded/personal/3448/ESSER_III_Spending_Plan.pdf Any comments should be sent to me by noon on Friday, September 24th.
The School Board heard a presentation from me on our current Return to School plan, along with a proposal on a mitigation strategy called a reset should we see spread of COVID-19. No action was taken. I would be interested in hearing from you. Please see the presentation and respond to me. Thanks! https://resources.finalsite.net/images/v1631724525/rocorik12mnus/ghsvdx5wo0buobf7b6hp/HealthandSafetyPresentationDraft9132021.pdf
