RIO HONDO – The Rio Hondo Bobcats will zoom into the 2020-21 school year on Monday, Aug. 24.
The students of Rio Hondo Independent School District will attend classes virtually for the first five weeks of school with the option of returning to campus on Monday, Sept. 28. Students who do not have a computer and/or internet access at home should contact the assigned school for accommodations. All students should pick up their work packets and schedules from their assigned schools if they have not done so already.
During the period of online/remote learning, student breakfast and lunch meals may be picked up from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the elementary, middle or high school.
According to Superintendent Roger Ellis, plans and procedures may continue to change as the school year unfolds, but the education of the students will continue.
“We will work through this pandemic and continue to problem-solve so that our students receive a safe and quality education,” Ellis said “Though the school year is starting in an unconventional way and there will be more safety protocols in place when the students return to class, it is all to ensure that our students start and finish the school year strong.”
