Update: Nationwide Outage Impacts Remote Learning
Editor's note: At approximately 12:50 p.m., the District's online sign-in platform was operational again. All learning platforms will be used as normal for tomorrow.

Due to a nationwide networking issue on Amazon Web Services, the District's online sign-in platform, the RCSD is currently experiencing an outage which is preventing both students and staff from logging in to Zoom, Google Classroom, Seesaw, and PowerSchool.

We are aware of this issue and the District will send an update to all families and staff when more information is available. Today’s learning will move to asynchronous/independent learning. 

Teachers and students in grades 3-12 will be able to login to Google Classroom with their username and password on Login instructions will be available shortly on the District's website at
