eLearning Introduction

Rocky Hill Public Schools will open for all students, for in-person learning, on a Monday through Friday basis, beginning with the first day of school on September 8, 2020. The Rocky Hill Public Schools recognize that some parents and guardians may choose to keep their children at home given the current status of the Coronavirus public health situation. The school district will offer remote learning opportunities for these children. Children participating in the in-person learning model are expected to attend school every day unless the district is forced to transition to a more restrictive model (hybrid or full-scale remote for all students).
eLearning
Elementary

Students participating in remote learning when schools are open will remain assigned to their regular classroom teacher. This will afford parents with the opportunity to return their child to school for in-person learning with minimal disruption.

See-Saw (Grades Pre-K – 1) and Google Classroom (Grades 2-5) will be used as the primary means for posting and sharing assignments for all students. 

 

Students participating in remote learning when schools are open will have assigned time blocks where they will meet with the classroom teacher each day. In the event of a temporary pivot to remote learning, information on schedule changes will be shared by the principal.

Secondary

Google Classroom will be used as the primary means for posting and sharing assignments for all students.

Griswold Middle School classes will remain together throughout the school day to the greatest extent possible. Griswold Middle School will use a four-period, block schedule on alternating (A/B) days. In the event of a temporary pivot to remote learning, GMS will maintain the same A/B schedule. 

Rocky Hill High School will use a three-period block schedule on a three-day rotation. This approach will minimize the number of transitions and student movement throughout the day. In the event of a temporary pivot to remote learning, RHHS may implement a rotating, two-day schedule. Information on scheduling changes will be shared by the principal.
