RFJSHS 10th graders: You will return to in person learning tomorrow (5.12.21).
RFJSHS 8th grade parents: Unfortunately, the 8th grade tea is cancelled for this year. There has been recent evidence that COVID infections have spread quickly at prom dances. Additionally, with COVID cases on the rise in our county, moving to yellow status on the COVID dial and the social distancing issues of a dance, the decision to avoid a high risk setting for students and staff was paramount. The 8th grade promotion is still scheduled for 5.27.21 at 7pm, with a limit of 3 guests per student to comply with physical distancing and capacity limitation requirements.
RFJSHS Seniors: Senior checkout today from 1:30 - 4pm: return school items and pick up your cap and gown. Tomorrow (5.12.21) report to north end of Washington school at 10am, in your cap and gown, for the senior parade, followed by the senior slide show and academic awards at 11am in the auditorium. In order to meet social distancing guidelines, 5 guests will be allowed per graduate for the senior slide show and academic awards.

It's Kindergarten Round-up! TODAY from 8am - 4pm, Washington Primary School. (Students must turn 5 on or before June 30)
Rocky Ford School District is able to provide free COVID testing for any student. Please contact one of the schools if you want your student to be tested.
An announcement from Rocky Ford School District: Another high school student tested positive for COVID and it is apparent that others are experiencing symptoms and would be considered “probable” cases. Therefore, some students are being required to quarantine and all RFJSHS 9th-12th grade students will be on remote learning starting on 5.3.21 through 5.11.21. (7th and 8th grade will remain on their hybrid schedule for the time being.) Students will return to in person learning on 5.12.21. This is an effort to protect the health of staff and students and will hopefully protect our ability to have a “normal” graduation. Students that are not quarantined may still go to track and baseball practice, since they are outside activities.

RFSD Parents / Guardians, With the increase of COVID infection rates in the Arkansas Valley area, we understand that there is an accompanying rise of interest in the available COVID testing.

The BinaxNOW rapid test, which has been approved by Colorado Public Health, is the specific COVID test used by the school district. Once again, COVID testing is optional and is completely free for Rocky Ford students. To take advantage of this service, simply call one of the schools and ask for Nurse Schroeder to schedule an appointment and then complete the consent form in the following link and bring it with you to the scheduled appointment: https://5il.co/rxd6
