RCS Plans to be In-Person for the 21-22 School Year
April 30, 2021

Dear Raider Families,

As a continued measure of keeping the Reynoldsburg City Schools family apprised of plans and preparations for the 2021-2022 academic school year, I wanted to share an important update. RCS is planning to be in-person for the 21-22 school year.

Last year, legislation was passed that allowed school districts the ability to provide remote learning to students. As of today, additional legislation to continue remote learning does not appear to be under consideration. Accordingly, in preparation for next school year, students and families in our District should prepare to begin next school year in August in a 5-Day/Week, in-person learning environment. Please note this is subject to change.

We are rapidly approaching the finish line for the end of the year. Soon, we will send information about Summer School, the Summer Meal Program and information and updates regarding overcrowding, our facilities and other key issues that impact our District. There is much work to be done this summer and over the next few years.

I want to say thank you to our staff and students who have shown their #REYNsilience. You made the best out of another truly unique situation. I am thrilled that we are still able to offer a traditional Prom and Graduation and other events that were not possible last year. As we wrap up the year, give yourselves a pat on the back- we are almost there!
