A/B Day Schedule Adopted for Fall 2020
On July 16, the Texas Education Agency announced the eligibility of large 5-6 A high schools to adopt a hybrid model of learning. As an administration, we were glad to see this opportunity come to fruition as we had expressed the potential need to do so back in July. As a result, RCHS will adopt an A/B Day Schedule for the Fall 2020 semester. We will re-evaluate the schedule at the semester break.
As of July 31, about 25% of high school students are opting into online learning which does not support the social distancing recommendations set forth by TEA. This model has the potential to reduce our student population of over 2,000 by half on a daily basis. We know that this decision impacts your family, and we are aware that this added change brings more questions. Please remember that guidance from the state has been updated a number of times and portions of this plan are subject to change.
- Alpha & Beta House students will attend school in-person on Mondays and Wednesdays. They will attend school virtually on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
- Gamma & Delta House students will attend school in-person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They will attend school virtually on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
- A student’s 7-period schedule will be the same in-person and virtually.

Due to health and safety recommendations by TEA, many students will pick up lunches in the cafetera and kiosks and take them to a classroom to enjoy. They will have 1 hour for lunch and small group tutorials or group/club meetings as desired.
