August 13: Family Update


<< Back to RES Blog


Prior to the start of school on September 8, RES will provide each student a packet of instructional materials which will include the items that teachers would typically request for the classroom such as pencils, crayons, notebooks, etc. We will be scheduling drive through opportunities for families to pick up these materials to use at home during virtual learning.The packets will be enough to begin the school year. As we move forward, it may be necessary for families to replenish/replace some materials for home if we continue in virtual learning.

Many thanks to RES PTA who have graciously supported this effort by purchasing many of the classroom supply items. Other items are being provided by the CCPS and of course, RES.


The CCPS Parent Questionnaire – we request all families ll this out ONCE per student in your household. Details about this important questionnaire are below this message.

Please note CCPS 2020-2021 calendar which has changes made by the Board of Education at their August meeting.
