Thank you for your continued support as we have worked through this first semester of a most unusual year. As a reminder, classes are dismissed for winter break today, December 18th, at 1 pm. Classes will resume Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Below are a few changes that we are implementing as we move into the second half of the school year.

Food Services and Meal Pickup

First, please note there will be no meal pickup during the break. We have compiled a list of community food resources on our website that may be helpful in the interim. When we return in January, the community meal pickup schedule will be as follows at the RHS cafeteria from 10-10:30 am:

Week of January 5: Tuesday pickup 1 breakfast/lunch, Wednesday pickup 3 breakfasts/lunches
Week of January 11: Monday pickup 2 breakfasts/lunches, Wednesday pickup 3 breakfasts/lunches
Week of January 18: Tuesday pickup 1 breakfast/lunch, Wednesday pickup 3 breakfasts/lunches. 

As a reminder, community meals are available to all children in the community ages 1 -18.  All students will continue to be eligible for free breakfast and lunch for the remainder of the school year. 

COVID Communications

In an effort to focus communications surrounding COVID cases, beginning January 5, 2021, building level cases will be reported on our website in lieu of daily building-level email/text notifications. We will continue to notify directly those in close contact to each individual who has tested positive. A dashboard has been placed on our website where you can view continued reporting information for the entire district. We will also be providing a weekly summary of COVID positive cases on the COVID Information page.

The addition of updated quarantine guidelines has also been added to our website. Please refer to this document for the most current information regarding quarantine and masking protocols.

We hope you have a safe and enjoyable break, and we look forward to a great start to the new year. We appreciate your efforts in helping us provide a safe, enjoyable environment for students. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Rolla Public Schools!
