A Message from General Wesley, President

R-MA Update to Coronavirus (COVID-19) for March 17th

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope that you have received your student home safely or that they will arrive shortly. I want to take a moment to thank you all, not only for your trust in us, but for your patient, positive response in support of our transition to on-line learning.

We know that there are many questions, concerns, and uncertainties while we, as a global society, navigate these uncharted waters. Please know that our first and foremost goal is to keep the R-MA Community as safe and healthy as possible.

Full-time classes will begin tomorrow, Wednesday, 18 March at 8:55am, Eastern Daylight Time, with 1st period and we will follow a “Monday” class schedule. Details for class times are posted in the OnSystem. In times like these, the true nature of our character is revealed. It is humbling to see the energy with which our faculty has taken on the challenge of teaching in a virtual world. Our decision, several years ago, to invest in a 1:1 technology plan is certainly paying off during this temporary move to a virtual classroom.

Our housekeeping staff continues to work diligently and will begin utilizing a Clorox 360 Ionizing Sanitation machine in all classrooms, dorm rooms, and offices, to ensure that our campus remains free of COVID-19 and ready to welcome our students back in the best way possible.

Our grounds crew is continuing its efforts to maintain and improve the landscape and our facilities maintenance crew is sanitizing our vehicles and making repairs, as needed around campus.

The key to succeeding in the days and weeks ahead will be communication. If your child experiences technical difficulties or needs to speak with a teacher or mentor on a given topic, please ensure we know the issue, so we can be timely and effective in responding. We will all have to demonstrate patience while we work out the challenges sure to present themselves in this new environment, and we look forward to welcoming our students back to campus as soon as conditions permit.

Warm regards and GO JACKETS!

Dave
