Insha'Allah this email will finds you in the best of health. As we follow our school district updates, Union City District has announced school closure for one week, starting Monday March 16th through Friday March 20th. With this decision, Rising Star Academy will also be closed during this time. Future updates will be shared with you on a weekly basis.
As assured earlier, RSA staff is ready to launch an online learning platform for all students in grades Pre-K through 12th. In order to make this possible and feasible to all students and parents, we need to have all contact information up to date. Additionally, we need to make sure our students are able to access the online learning platforms.
Unfortunately, not all parents notify the school of changes of phone numbers or supply us with correct emails.
Communication during a health crisis is of great importance. Teachers and/or Admins will use your emails as a source of communication during this time. All work assigned to students will be graded and posted for parents to see. Students will be given ample time to complete all assignments. Any assignments not completed will result with a grade of zero. Our goal is to continue your child's education as if they are present in school.
These are school days and will be counted as such. The RSA crisis team will also supply any family who does not have access to a computer/laptop at home the opportunity to come to the school on Monday, March 16th between 9:00 and 11:00 AM and sign out a chromebook. If needed, parents and students will also be given the opportunity to pick up any books from their lockers during this time. Once again, your child/children are our main concern. Please complete the attached online education survey and provide us with all information needed. Your prompt response is greatly appreciated.
ALL PARENTS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE AND GIVE CONSENT TO THE FOLLOWING ONLINE EDUCATION SURVEY.
Note: School calendar will be updated as deemed necessary.
Jazakum Allah Khayran,
RSA Crisis Team
