Face To Face Start Dates


Superintendent’s Update – September 16

Click here to watch the superintendent’s update. Dr. Stone talks about the third first day of school and the RISD COVID-19 Notification Portal. Other highlights include:

  • High schools are finalizing preparations for the return of students on Monday for those families who made the choice to return for face to face instruction.

  • The universal mask requirement is for everyone. Social distancing is for everyone.

  • Whether our schools are able to stay open for face to face instruction depends directly on whether people not only follow health and distancing protocols while in school but also that students and adults make those same good choices when outside of school.

  • RISD is going to be consistent and relentless with risk mitigation protocols.

  • If a positive case is confirmed among a student or staff member, the Health Services team, which is on call seven days a week, will work with schools and families to conduct contact tracing.

  • Extracurricular activities are returning. Coaches and adults will wear masks at all times. The only time players will have a mask off is when they are actively playing in a game.

  • All adults and spectators who attend an athletic event are required to wear a mask.

  • All parents or secondary students are encouraged to complete a brief online student health screener each school day.
Dr. Stone has provided weekly updates throughout the pandemic. Previous messages can be found here.

Reminder - Wednesday September 16 Is An Early Release Day
Early release days were added to RISD’s student academic calendar in 2018-19. Students will be released two hours early on Sept. 16, Oct. 28, February 24 and April 14. This includes both face to face and virtual students.

After-school programs, bus schedules and other portions of the daily schedule will be adjusted by two hours on those days. ACE schools will release three hours early.

The days were added as a direct result of requests from RISD teachers through surveys and interviews, and will provide teachers with more dedicated time for instructional planning.

Parents of students in half-day programs and Pre-K should check with their child’s school about the impact of early release days on special programs. Students receiving special education transportation will have their bus service altered to meet early release times.

Parents with questions about early release day schedules should contact their child’s school

A/B Calendar Available
Under the Blueprint, one of the changes for the 2020-21 school year includes all students in grades 7-12 following an A or B block schedule each day, with days alternating throughout the instructional year. Class periods have been extended to 90 minutes, and students will have half their classes on A days and the other half of their classes on B days, alternating each day. The RISD Student Academic Calendar has been updated to note each instructional day as an A or B day. Early in the week of August 17, schools will inform parents when specific schedules for each student are available.

Census Deadline Moved Up To September 30
Richardson ISD is providing information to educate, encourage and engage our school community about the 2020 Census, and we encourage your participation.

The Census Bureau has moved up the deadline to complete the Census to September 30. RISD will keep its Census website up through the extension.

The Census has only 10 questions and is available in 13 languages other than English. And, for the first time, you can respond by mail, phone or online. By responding to the 2020 Census now, you will have done your part to ensure your community gets its fair share of federal funding and representation in Congress.
