How will enrollment work for new students given that our buildings are closed?
New to RPS students will enroll via the Enroll RPS platform. Once their enrollment form is submitted, a member of their new school's team will review the form for completeness, reaching out if there are any missing documents, information, or otherwise have questions. Once the enrollment form is complete (including all required documentation establishing proof of residency, up to date immunizations and a recent physical), the student will be enrolled for the new school year.
Is RPS moving forward with its new zones for the virtual school year?
Yes. Moving forward with the new zones is important for a number of reasons. Most notably, we want to ensure that all of the relationships that students develop during the virtual semester are maintained during the spring in-person semester. If we were to use the old zones for the virtual semester and the new zones for the in-person semester (which would be necessary given the new schools and other factors), maintain relationships would not be possible.
If a family is still unsure of their new zone for next year, how can they obtain that information?
Families who want to verify their new zone school should visit the school locator and enter their address.
Will attendance be required?
Yes. Students will be expected to log on each morning for their classes at 9:15 am and participate in all assigned activities. We recognize that unforeseen circumstances out of students’ control may impact their virtual attendance. We will, of course, take those factors into consideration in how we record attendance during our virtual semester.
