2022-2023 School Year Updates

 

August 10, 2022: Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year

Welcome back to the start of the 2022-23 school year! The Romoland School District is excited to begin the new school year with renewed optimism, focus, and commitment to educational equity for all students by prioritizing a whole-child focus with an emphasis on the following goals:

  • Providing students with a rigorous and enriched academic foundation focused on personalized learning to meet the demands of college and career readiness
  • Providing safe, engaging, and enriched learning environments that support the culturally diverse, social-emotional, and physical development needs of each and every student
  • Providing physically safe and well-maintained facilities that support the health and safety of all students
  • Maintaining fiscal solvency


In our effort to achieve these goals, we place a high value on individual growth for ourselves, our colleagues, and our students. We continually emphasize the importance of adults engaging in and modeling a “growth mindset”  to develop ourselves, while also modeling for students the importance of continual learning, reflection, and personal growth that will serve them well throughout their lifetime. 

Of course, in order to maximize our efforts in creating environments and support structures that will help us achieve our goals, we value and honor a strong, collaborative relationship with our parents/guardians. The alignment between the school, parent/guardian, and student create optimal conditions in which students are provided every opportunity to reach their full potential. We encourage parents/guardians to partner with us to positively contribute to the education of their student(s), as well as, the students throughout our school community. 

Lastly, we are excited to offer our new Alternative School of Choice in the Romoland School District and the Hillside Innovation Academy will begin serving students in the new school year. The school contains three distinct program options for students to meet the individual needs and learning styles of those within our community. To find out more about the Virtual Learning, Homeschool, and Middle School Academy options you can visit our website for more detailed information.

Looking forward to a great and productive school year!

August 8, 2022: COVID Update for the 2022-23 School Year

As we move into the 2022-2023 school year there are some updates for staff and families related to COVID-19. Romoland School District continues to reference COVID safety guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California. Vaccinations for staff and students continue to be recommended by CDPH. Also, masks are not required of staff or students, but we have masks available for those who would like to use one.

The District will provide COVID-19 over-the-counter (OTC) test kits for students for the following conditions:

  • Symptomatic: Testing for students who have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Exposure: Testing for students who have had possible exposure to COVID-19 at school.
  • Asymptomatic/Request: Testing for students upon parent/guardian request.

Please note that OTC tests must be administered by a parent/guardian.

Students with COVID-19 symptoms will be referred to the Health Office at their school. An OTC test kit will be provided to be administered by the parent/guardian, and the student may be sent home pending test results.

Students who test positive for COVID-19 with or without symptoms can return to school when all the following have occurred:

  • At least 24 hours have passed since a fever of 100.0 or higher has resolved without using fever-reducing medications,
  • COVID-19 symptoms have improved, and
  • At least 10 days have passed since the onset of symptoms (can return on/after Day 6 with a negative COVID test and should wear a mask through Day 10).


A COVID close contact exposure continues to be defined as more than 15 minutes over a 24-hour period within 0-6 feet. Notifications will be sent to families when there is possible classroom exposure to a COVID-positive case. 

Please remind students about the importance of washing their hands and covering a sneeze or cough to help keep our school community healthy. Thank you, and we look forward to a safe and healthy school year.


 

August 1, 2022: Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year

Dear Romoland School District Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! The first day of school is August 11th, and the 2022-23 School Calendar is available on our website: romoland.net. This is a reminder that there are new school times this year:

Early Childhood Education (ECE) Schedules

  • AM Classes: 7:40 AM – 10:40 AM
  • PM Classes: 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
  • Full Day: 7:40 AM – 2:10 PM

Elementary School Schedules

  • TK/Kindergarten: 7:50 AM – 1:50 PM
  • Grades 1-5: 7:50 AM – 2:10 PM
  • Minimum Day: 7:50 AM – 12:15 PM

Middle School Schedule

  • Minimum Day: 8:10 AM – 12:45 PM


School offices are currently open and ready to support you with annual student data confirmation, student registration, and general information. This is an important reminder that ALL returning students will need their annual student data confirmation completed in Aeries. Your student will not be assigned to a class/course schedule until this process has been completed. Please complete the process this week.

If you have not yet completed this process for your student, you will see a yellow banner at the top of your account when you log in. Click on that yellow banner to proceed through the needed steps in the process. At the final step, you will need to upload proof of residency (utility bill, mortgage/rental agreement). (Note: This can be done as a .jpg from your phone.) If you do not see the yellow banner on your account, it means that you have completed the process. Here is a parent video to help in this process: Aeries Student Data Confirmation Video. If you need further assistance, please contact the school office staff.

We look forward to seeing students soon!
