Dear Families and Staff, We are communicating to you about the events today in Uvalde, Texas, where a school shooting occurred in an elementary school where a gunman killed 14 students and one teacher. We recognize that this is recent information and acknowledge that news and details of the incident will evolve in the coming hours and days.
We are sending this communication to all RPS families as there has been some confusion about changes to our transportation policy for middle and high school students this year. Only those high school students who live two miles or more from RHS or Seacoast are eligible for school transportation. Only those middle school students who live one mile or more from their middle school are eligible for public school transportation.
Welcome back to those who are re-joining us this school year and welcome to those who are joining us for the first time. We are looking forward to a more settled year than last and appreciate your partnership as we work to provide all students with everything they need to be successful.
I hope all is well. I’m writing today with some COVID safety plans for the 2021-2022 school year. All teaching and learning will take place in-person and there will not be a full-remote option for students.
During the week of April 11, 2022 the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE’s) Office of Language Acquisition will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of Revere Public Schools.
Most students eagerly await winter break each year and the relief it brings from the stress of homework, tests, and busy schedules. This year, as we approach nearly two years of life during a pandemic, winter break probably seems more appealing than ever.
