A message from our superintendent, Dr. Alan Cron: Today the Governor announced a mandatory 3-week closure of all schools across the Commonwealth. Given the Governor’s pronouncement, the Rockland Public Schools and offices, including Rockland Daycare, will be closed through Monday, April 6th, 2020 and will plan to reopen on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020. Throughout the crisis, a free, bag-lunch will be being served Monday through Friday at the “Mainstreet” entrance of RHS/RMS between the hours of 11:30 am and 12:30 pm Monday through Friday. Please share this important information. Finally, senior administration and faculty are working quickly and thoughtfully to develop a district-wide, comprehensive “work from home” plan for all students and parents. Our goal is to minimize the negative effects of the loss of teaching and learning that is occurring during this crisis. Alan Cron, Ed.D. Superintendent
Although there are no presumed or confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus in Rockland currently, out of an abundance of caution, the Rockland Public Schools, including Rockland Day Care, will be closed effective Monday, March 16th through Sunday, March 29th. We will provide a free grab-and-go bagged lunch for any Rockland Public School or Daycare student at the Main Street entrance of Rockland High School between the hours of 11:30 and 12:30 pm Monday through Friday. We appreciate the ongoing patience and support of the faculty, staff, community leaders, and families as we work through this unprecedented and rapidly changing situation. The well being of our students and staff is our top priority.
