A message from RANDOLPH SCHOOL DISTRICT
This is a reminder from the office of the Supt. of Randolph Public Schools.
This Wednesday, March 4, is an Early Release Day for Randolph schools. The High School
will dismiss at 11:00; the middle school at 11:02, and the Elementary
schools at 11:55. Please make the necessary arrangements for your
children. Thank You.
Randolph Public Schools' Families and Community,
We welcomed the
summer-like days of September, but now, like many of you I’m thinking – enough
already with the snow. Should there be no additional snow days or
modifications to the school calendar, our last day of school for students will
be June 25 (a change from the original date of June 15). We have,
therefore, only 3 days remaining to complete the required 180 instructional
days by June 30, and the wintery month of March still looms.
We are all deeply
concerned about the recent interruption to student learning because of the
weather. Moving forward it will require some creativity and flexibility
as we investigate a combination of the following possible options to
complete the 180 days:
Ø Saturdays (half-days)
Ø Class on Good Friday (April 3 – half-day)
Ø Classes during April Break
Ø Converting selected half-day professional days to
Over the past
couple of weeks I’ve engaged parents, the PTO Council, REA leadership, and
district administrators and principals to discuss possible options.
Collective feedback is critical as we work to devise the most appropriate plan
to address the impact that the snow days have had on the teaching and learning
Your understanding is
appreciated as we work through these weather challenges together.
Enjoy the Winter Recess
