Members of the Rensselaer City School District Community:
Hopefully, most people were able to take advantage of our unplanned extended weekend. It looks like we will have most of our drivers back to start the week normally. Hopefully we won’t find ourselves in that position again anytime soon.
There was some feedback about some people not receiving emergency text notifications. If you have not been receiving them and would like to, please sign up now with the SchoolMessenger link that we have shared over the past few weeks. We want everyone to know what is going on!
SchoolMessenger Community access
We are excited to announce that community members may now sign up for our SchoolMessenger broadcasts. You can choose which broadcasts to receive, such as Elementary School, Jr Sr High School, Budget, Community Events, Athletics, etc.
This can be done at https://asp.schoolmessenger.com/rensselaer/subscriber/. Please share this information with any friends and neighbors that may be interested.
Additional COVID-19 Home Test Kits
For those that would like some additional home COVID-19 tests, we still have an abundance of them in each office. Parents can now pick up 5 more tests per student at each office. Elementary parents can also email your teacher to have the tests sent home with students. JrSr High parents can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request that the tests be sent home. PLEASE do not reply to this email for the request.
If you know anyone interested in driving a bus, please send them to us. If you see a bus driver, please thank them for what they do!
