Dear Rowland Unified Community:
The safety and health of our students, staff and community are the utmost importance and we are here to help our community during these unprecidented times of uncertainty.
As you may be aware, for the health and safety of everyone and in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, today Governor Newsom and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond announced the recommendation to continue student dismissal through the end of the school year. This recommendation is also supported by the Los Angeles County Office of Education.
While we are all still processing that our students will not physically be returning to our classrooms and schools, and come to accept that this school year will look like none other, our staff remains committed to providing support and services to our students and families.
Schools and learning will continue following Spring Break through June 4 in an online and remote setting. *Please visit your school's website for specific student remote learning information.
If your child needs a device to participate in online learning, please reach out to our technology hotline, at (626) 854-8543. We will be providing further guidance on remote learning and information specific to the grade level of your child in the near future.
For our high school seniors, we know that this is not the conclusion of your senior year you had hoped for or any of us could have ever imagined. We are in the process of creating a survey to get your feedback on senior events and traditions before we make any decisions that will directly impact you.
Again, want to remind you that we have support phone hotlines available that are open Monday – Friday, 8 AM – 4:30 PM:
RUSD Parent Information Hotline: (626)854-8549
RUSD Technology Assistance: (626) 854-8543
Thank you for your continued support as we all work through this change together. Please know that we miss seeing our students in person and remain committed to supporting you and your child through this change to remote learning. Please continue to take care of yourself and your family by following and implementing social distancing practices and washing your hands frequently.
We will continue to be in touch and everyone looks forward to seeing students again through online learning.
We are still providing learning opportunities and providing valuable services to our children during the student dismissal. *Each school has posted learning information on their website.
Free To-Go Student Meals: Free breakfast and lunch meals are provided for any children 18 and younger. These To-Go meals are now available twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, from 11 AM to 1 PM.
