Roy-Hart plans 5 days in September

From the Superintendent's Desk

Dear Residents,

As you may know, there has been a great deal of information and speculation around what our schools will look like in September. I can assure you that we have learned a great deal over the past 16 months and I truly believe that our teaching and learning will continue to improve as a result of our lessons learned.

Our buildings are going through their normal summer maintenance and our District is developing plans to reopen our schools on Tuesday, September 7th with full in-person learning, five (5) days per week. Over the next several weeks, you will be receiving additional information specific to your children and the school building which they attend.

I encourage all those who are eligible to consider obtaining a COVID vaccination this summer prior to the start of school.

As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out directly or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski

Dr. Hank Stopinski
Superintendent of Schools
