Dear Raider Families,
Welcome back to the 2022 school year. While we have had an unusual start with the altered bus schedule, we are excited and ready for the second semester. I hope you were able to rest and recharge over break, and are prepared for the second half of the school year as well.
While we continue to strive for some sort of normalcy, new COVID-19 variants, nationwide staff and supply chain shortages have forced us to be nimble in how we navigate the next several weeks. Kudos to our teachers and staff who have done a remarkable job of handling our return from Winter Break!
Every day, Reynoldsburg City Schools, in partnership with the Board of Education and state and local health officials, monitor the number of COVID-19 cases. As variants arise, and our community case numbers fluctuate, we have put protocols in place to address several scenarios, including remote learning. While we have not made the switch to remote learning as of yet, please know that we are prepared to do so if the need arises and we will communicate to the best of our ability with our students and families.
To ensure you are receiving the most up to date information, please be sure that your contact information is correct with your child’s school. We send communications via the following channels:
The Centers for Disease Control have also updated their protocols for quarantine, which you can view here or on reyn.org under the Renew, Recharge,Restart page.
Now is a time to continue to be focused on our strategic plan goals and to create the best possible learning environment that we can. We will work to the best of our ability to provide as much notice as possible about any potential changes to our instructional mode, but for now, we want to have our students in person, in buildings, participating in excellent teaching and learning.
We have many events and activities planned for the upcoming year culminating in graduation. I look forward to seeing you out and about in the District.
Dr. Melvin J. Brown
