RNS is committed to the education of our students until the conclusion of the school year in June. We have put into place an At-Home Learning Program for all of our current students.
The June Report will reflect the engagement and assessments of your son or daughter in this At-Home Learning Program.
If you are an existing parent, please note the following:
First, students can find a week-at-glance document under Topics on the portal page for each of their courses. This outlines the learning outcomes, key tasks, assignment and check-in due dates for the week. Due dates and check-in times will also be found in the student’s portal assignment centre for the week.
Second, we have monitored the workload for students at each age level and have made adjustments so that our expectations are manageable while still being meaningful. An approximate guideline is 2-3 hours per day in Middle School, 3 hours per day in Grades 9 and 10 and 4 hours per day in Grades 11 and 12.
Third, to support the healthy routines for our students we have made ongoing adjustments to the At-Home Learning Program based on survey results and feedback. We have also shared a number of fun and safe ways for students to stay active. These can be found on the school portal.
Please reach out to us if your son or daughter needs better support at this time. The first point of contact is usually the advisor, although our Assistant Head of School, University and Guidance Counsellors, ESL Teacher, Learning Support Strategist, IB Coordinator and Health Centre are all available from a distance.
