Please read the statement regarding school closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year from Superintendent Alan Cron. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T92a-GekOSLYiy4Zqqv5ryLyEZUgy2x4/view
April Vacation Update from Dr. Cron: During the School Committee meeting Monday night, April 13, the Rockland School Committee voted unanimously to cancel April vacation in an effort to ensure continuity of learning at home while schools remain closed until at least May 4. April 21-24 will now be designated as days of remote learning. Patriots Day, on Monday, April 20, will still be observed as a holiday. As a result, the last day of school will now be June 12. By working through April vacation, we will ensure continuity of learning, keep students engaged in their distance learning activities, and better prepare them to return to school when the time comes. The decision to cancel April vacation comes after extensive collaboration and communication with district administration, members of the Rockland Educators Association, and staff members. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience during this unprecedented time as we all work together to do what is best for our students, faculty, and staff. If you have any questions please reach out to your child’s teacher or principal. Sincerely, Alan Cron, Ed.D. Superintendent
