Dear RCCU1 Families:
The new school year begins with a Teacher Institute on August 15th and 16th and the first day of student attendance on August 17th. A “Back to School Night” will be held at each school on August 15th and I invite you to make plans to attend. A schedule for the event is below.
RCES PreK, Kindergarten, Grade 2 & 4 5:00 - 6:30 pm

As we begin the 2022 - 2023 school year, each school district is required to have a Safe Return to Learning Plan. This plan may be found on the school district website at https://www.rccu1.net/
and is open for public comment until midnight on August 16th. Please take a little time to review this
plan and familiarize yourself with its content. Many of the restrictions that have been in place for the past couple of years have been lifted. However, COVID-19 is still present in the community, so this plan addresses how the district will continue to focus on student and staff health and safety.
Over the past couple of weeks I have spoken to many of the teachers and support staff throughout the school district. I can tell you that there is a very real sense of excitement about the start of the new school year. Speaking for everyone that makes up RCCU1, we are really looking forward to welcoming back our students on August 17th!
Chris A. Simpson, Superintendent of Schools
The RCMS Lady Cubs played their first game of their season on Thursday. A huge thank you goes out to the City of Olney for the use of the fields and the hard work that went into getting our field ready to play. Our next home game is August 17th at 4:30. If you get a chance, come out and watch!
