Remote Instruction Clarification: We hope by now our parents/guardians and families have familiarized themselves with the Richfield Springs Central School District’s reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. The District has worked diligently to ensure that the reopening plan will be safe for its returning staff and students. While the District remains steadfast in its commitment to maintain the health and well-being of its staff and students as they return to the school building, we are also aware that certain students, particularly our special education population, may not be able to return to the school building despite the District’s safety measures. If you, as a parent/guardian of a special education student, believe your child warrants remote instruction based on his/her medical condition, please submit your request in writing as soon as possible to Tom Piatti, Superintendent of Schools at email@example.com. The District reserves the right to individually assess each request and seek medical documentation regarding the student’s medical condition and how it impacts the student’s access to education in order to determine whether the student necessitates remote instruction. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support during these unchartered times, and we look forward to seeing you all in September.
