Dear Rucker Family,
The 2019-2020 school year brought about unpredicted times for us at Rucker. Despite not being able to return to school traditionally, we persevered. I hope you have been enjoying your summer break with new norms. I would like to thank everyone in advance for your flexibility, adaptability, and understanding as we embark upon the 2020-2021 school year. The administrative team has worked diligently and have been in close communication with Lancaster County School District’s office since the COVID Virus impacted us in March.
As the district prepared for this year, a task force was implemented. The district decided on two models for the return of school; A/B Hybrid and Virtual Distance Learning, which was approved by the SC Department of Education. The school year will begin on Monday, August 31, 2020.
Even though we will be encountering many uncertainties and challenges, Rucker’s primary goal is to ensure all faculty and staff and students return to an environment that’s conducive for learning. We are following the guidelines set by our district to make sure everyone is safe. Grade levels and departments will continue to collaborate with each other to plan and deliver instruction to meet the needs of our students. All teachers will have planning/office hours.
Thanks again for your continued support as Rucker implements changes to ensure the wellbeing and safety for all students and staff. As the administrative team receives updates from the district, we will keep you informed. Please feel free to contact the school with any concerns or questions. Continue to stay safe. Go Rams!
Michelle Crosby, Principal
