Dear Parents and Staff,

We continue to appreciate your patience as we adjust to a new normal here at RZJHS! Each day, we learn what is working and what needs to be changed. This morning, it was determined that surveying for Covid-19 symptoms through Google Docs ran more smoothly than the Magnus App. Beginning tomorrow morning, please access the daily survey here. You can use this same link daily, so please save it. We will continue to use Magnus for electronic forms and medical records but NOT for the screening of Covid-19.

There have been some questions about carpooling. We understand that many parents depend on carpools as a reliable means of transportation. Unfortunately, there have been cases of Covid-19 in the community as a result of teens riding together. We ask that if you carpool, please make sure everyone in the car is masked, passengers are seated as distanced as possible, and the windows are down (weather permitting).

Last, but certainly not least, many families have had difficulty entering health information into Magnus. With that, we do not have documentation of many of the students who take medications while at school. If your student takes medication while at school, please have them drop the medication off in the front office before the end of the week with brief instructions on the dose and timing.

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding during what is a challenging time for all of us. As always, please be in touch with any questions or concerns that you have.

Jill Smiley
