Virtual Open House

Open House Reminder and COVID-19 Update

Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:

Virtual Open House

Mr. Palmer has sent out his welcome back message and invited everyone to the VRES Virtual Open House.  Don’t miss the great opportunity to talk with our teachers and get a feel for how this year will go!

With the full return to live instruction, we are observing a lack of behavioral self control from some of our students.  Please know that we take any behavior that impacts safety as a serious matter.  Our team will work hard to rebuild that resilience and respect that seems to have eroded over this crazy year and a half of COVID-19.  There are messages and resources that will be shared regularly to facilitate the healthy parent/student/school partnership that we all value.

The district has been notified of two positive cases in the elementary school this week.  Contact tracing for both cases has been completed and all parents of students identified as contacts have been called.  The district continues to follow the contact tracing guidance provided to us.

Let’s continue our partnership in safety by taking the following precautions:

  • Maintain social distancing when out in public.
  • Wear masks at all times when inside schools and on school buses.
  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently and thoroughly. Use hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available.
  • Monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and in the event someone is sick, stay at home.
