A message for River Bluff families

Dear RBHS Families:

Beginning Monday, January 10, 2022, River Bluff High School will temporarily shift all students from face-to-face instruction to e-learning. 

Students are tentatively scheduled to come back to school to resume face-to-face instruction on Tuesday, January 18. 

Here is the schedule.

Monday, January 10 – Full day of e-learning
Tuesday, January 11 – Full day of e-learning
Wednesday, January 12  – Full day of e-learning
Thursday, January 13  – Half day of e-learning (Previously scheduled half day for students with dismissal at 12:40 p.m.)
Friday, January 14 – No school for students (Previously scheduled teacher workday)
Monday, January 17 – No school for students (Holiday)
Tuesday, January 18 – Tentatively return to school for face-to-face instruction

There will be no school-related clubs, sports, activities and/or events from Jan. 10–13. Extracurricular activities will resume on Friday, Jan. 14. 

Please know we did not make this decision lightly, as a shift in instructional model impacts all families.We made this decision based on the school’s percentage of staff who are positive, symptomatic and quarantined. 

If your student is currently isolated or quarantined, this shift does not impact the length of the quarantine as told to them by the school nurse. 

Students should log into Schoology to complete learning and assignments. During this e-learning period, your student is expected to participate in e-learning activities and complete work given to your student by the teacher. 

The school will follow up with additional information, including the plan for exams scheduled for next week. 

Students who travel to Lexington Technology Center, a Center for Advanced Study, The College Center or other programs where they leave RBHS for learning throughout the day may still go to those classes if they can drive themselves. If they can not drive, the student will NOT be penalized. Some of those programs/classes can and will be conducted virtually. Your teacher will reach out with more information soon, including exam details.  

Families can pick up no-cost student meals on Monday, January 10 from 11–1 p.m., in the bus loop. 

Thank you for your understanding as we work to provide quality instruction for your students while keeping our children and staff safe. 

Dr. Greg Little, Superintendent and Jacob Smith, RBHS Principal
