In the Rockwood School District, we do whatever it takes to ensure all students realize their potential. By that, we mean we will do everything we can to provide an outstanding academic and social-emotional experience for all our students.
Out of care and concern, our top priority for students, families, and staff will always be health and safety. These are some of the most challenging times Rockwood has ever faced. As a school community, we strive to
provide an education that reflects the hopes, dreams and aspirations our school community holds for every child. We want every child to love life and find success.
As we continue with the 2020-21 school year, I want to acknowledge the anxiety that many, if not all, of us are experiencing right now. Families have concerns about COVID-19 and what is the best educational option for their children. We know our families have a variety of unique needs. We have two strong options for your children’s education.
Rockwood At School: We are beginning a gradual phase-in plan to reopen Rockwood schools in a safe and healthy manner. Initially, the plan will focus on our youngest students in preschool through second grade.
Rockwood At Home: We will continue to offer high-quality online learning. Rockwood teachers built online courses aligned to Rockwood curriculum that follows the district’s instructional philosophies.
I can assure you that we will be working hard collectively, thinking more creatively than ever before, stretching every last resource, and always keeping our learners front and center. We are investing our time and energy into our students’ academic, social, emotional and physical well-being.
To make it through these next few months and find success, we will all need kindness, empathy and grace. I ask that we all have the strength to extend it to each other, and the fortune to receive it.
Be safe and be healthy,
Dr. Mark Miles
