This Is Chief Joseph Middle School
Wrapping It Up For 2019-20
The last day of school is nearly here and many of you are already winding things down for your schools. Before you take some much-needed time away this summer, please make sure you make a Post to your homepages that include some basic information for families who reach out to you before fall. Here’s a sample message:
“Chief Jo Middle School will be closed for the summer from June 22 to mid-August. View our staff directory.
Richland School District is in the midst of planning how to reopen schools in the fall after closing our buildings to students in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020. See updates on those efforts and learn about the planning process.
Information about the start of the 2020-21 school year, such as open house events and classroom assignments, will be released later in the summer.
For new students needing to enroll, start the enrollment process online.”
Richland School District school buildings may be closed but learning continues! Teachers, school principals and district administrators have updated the district’s At-Home Learning program so students stay engaged in their education through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year while following guidance for social distancing in response to the novel coronavirus.
Gov. Jay Inslee has extended the closure of all schools in Washington state for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year and expects instruction to move toward a distance learning model.
Through technology, innovative teaching and collaboration with families, our new Virtual Classroom program will help students meet their goals and push their education forward while schools are closed in response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
The Richland School Board and district administrators will be in emergency meetings on March 13 to discuss when and how to close schools in response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19. The district asks families to begin making plans for their children in the event that schools close with short notice and for an indefinite extended period of time. Check out www.rsd.edu/coronavirus for the latest information.
From racing to the finish to encouraging each other to do their best, learn how one of our physical education class is bringing students together.
