Principal's Message

Greetings Rondo Raptors,

Preparations for opening Rondo School of Discovery have been intensifying as we near our opening date of July 6th for tracks A, C, and D. Our current reality is that we will open with remote learning for those tracks for the month of July. As it stands today (and I say that because it changes often) we will be open for students to attend physically on campus starting on August 3rd with the return of B-track.

Here a few of the things we have been working on and will continue to give attention in the coming weeks.

  • We are preparing a virtual Parent Information Night which parents will be able to access on the Rondo Raptor YouTube channel. The play list for the Parent Information Night will be unlisted so an email with the link will be sent out when it is live. You have an opportunity to see the school, here about the STEAM instructional framework, meet the PTA and then go to other videos produced by each grade level to go over expectations.
  • Staff is working on current procedures for keeping the campus clean and disinfected and awaits news from the county office of health for changes in suggestions so that we can ensure a safe learning environment for students and staff.
  • We are preparing lessons to open in a remote learning environment. This will look very different from the distance learning that you ended the previous school year with. In remote learning students will utilize resources in Google Classroom along with other platforms to deliver new instruction that is appropriately engaging and rigorous. Teachers will meet with students at arranged times virtually individually, in small groups, or as a whole class as appropriate for real time instruction. Much of the content for Remote Learning will be asynchronous meaning students will be able to log on for learning at any time of the day that is convenient for the family.
  • As a resource to augment remote learning, we are also considering a material pick procedure where families can drive through the Rondo parking lot to pick up grade level materials like work book pages and whatnot. More information on this will be communicated using the district’s message broadcast system.
  • After much tedious work, class lists are set, and students are assigned their track for the 2020-21 school year. There does remain some potential for tracks to change if and when additional teaching staff is added to Rondo. Again, as that information becomes available, we will communicate it out to the appropriate families.
  • If you haven’t done so, please log on to ParentConnect and complete your on-line registration for the 2020-21 school year.

Despite the circumstances, I remain super excited to open this amazing school. Everything from the building to the furniture to the technology to the amazing staff is coming together to create what will become an award winning school. I have no doubts that as we build partnerships with parents and families we will be able together to provide the best learning opportunities for our children. As always, if you questions or concerns, please reach out to me…my door (or phone) is always open.

 Enthusiastically,

Dr. Trevor Dietrich
