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

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

RMS students and staff will be participating in a Walk-a-thon to raise money for Water for South Sudan. Our efforts to support this organization are inspired by our One Book One School summer reading book, A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. As a result of reading this book, we learned that many rural villages in South Sudan lack easy access to clean drinking water, something we take for granted every day. RMS wants to help our world! We are promising to raise $5000 for this organization which will help to fund a drilling rig for a well which will provide village people in South Sudan with fresh and clean water. Our Walk-a-thon will occur after school on Thursday, October 24th. Further details will be sent home with your child. Please consider supporting your child and this worthwhile project. Bulldog Pride!
