February 2, 2021 Dear Richgrove Parents/Guardians, As it stands today Richgrove School District is now in its 11th month of Distance Learning. We had all hoped that by this time we would find ourselves in at least some hybrid version of in-class instruction, but unfortunately that is not the case. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for doing your best to make the most of this difficult situation. RSD recognizes that many of your lives have been altered in order to stay home while your children are in Distance Learning and it is very honorable. Please know that our staff has worked very hard to do the best they can in this situation. They all wish that it was safe enough to return to the classroom with your amazing children. Currently the Tulare County COVID-19 Colored Tier numbers are still not low enough for us to return to school and so for the time being we will continue to be in Distance Learning. Our hope is at some point, before June, have low enough numbers to be able to bring some of our students back before our school year is over. Should this happen we will give the parents/guardians enough notice so that you can decide whether or not to allow your children to come back on campus or continue on Distance Learning Platform. You will have both options, if and when we are able to return. With that said, Richgrove School District whole-heartedly believes that the best location for the children of our community, during this uncertain time, is in the classroom surrounded by friends and caring adults, engaging in positive interactions that lead to lifelong learning and friends. However, as much as we want this to be our reality, we cannot do so until it is safe for all members of our school family to be able to step onto our campus and go back to their families under the safest circumstances possible in this time of COVID-19. Please know that we will make every effort possible to support and foster the virtual educational and socialization process so as to minimize the lack of in person contact that we are missing. We realize this continues to be challenging for our families, and we appreciate your support and patience. We are grateful for all that our students, parents and staff have done to support the continuity of education, safety, and addressing the nutritional needs of our students during school closures. This pandemic is not over, but it looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel with the help of vaccines. We ask for your continued support in our cumulative battle to provide the best educational experience we can for our students in this unprecedented time. As a District, we will continue to improve in every aspect of educational and emotional growth to make the best of this difficult situation. Together we must work to keep our children, community and staff as safe as possible. We ask for your support in this battle and that we all remain Richgrove Warrior Strong! Sincerely, Mario Millan Superintendent Richgrove School District
