Dear Rice ISD Parents and Guardians,
Today the governor has issued an executive order for school to be closed through May 4th, Please continue to visit our website and click on Covid 19 resources for instruction and staff email addresses.
Packet pick up and drop off will continue to be on Mondays starting at 8 am and will last until 8pm. In an effort to prevent any and all cross contamination, starting today teachers will only be accepting electronic work from students. Families have the option of Google Classroom, emailing, taking pictures of work and texting or emailing it, or using the scan option in the notes application to return work to teachers. We realize this may be an inconvenience, however making decisions that will keep not only our staff, but our community safe are top priority.
Paper packets will be made available only to those few families without any internet or cell phone service. All student work will continue to be posted on our website each week to be accessed at your convenience. Remember we have free WiFi access in our high school parking lot daily from 8am until 6pm. We appreciate your support during this time of uncertainty as maintaining everyone’s health and safety are essential.
Together, we will get through this crisis.
Rice ISD Superintendent
