The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. If your household is eligible, you can receive: >Up to a $50/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals >A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50) Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. The FCC has announced that consumers can begin applying for and enrolling in the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program on May 12, 2021. The program will end when the fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.

Remote Learning Day Tomorrow Good Afternoon R-PEL Families, A short time ago Mr. Edwards communicated to our community that we will have a remote learning day tomorrow. All R-PEL teachers have communicated their learning plan to their students for tomorrow's remote learning. Many teachers and parents have also been in communication regarding the details about their remote learning opportunities. While the plan is for us to be asynchronous (meaning videos, websites and links through an online platform), there may be some variation based on what the teachers feel is best for their students. All information will be communicated to the students via Google Classroom and SeeSaw. Please know and understand that this is our first "remote" snow day...so there may be some bumps. Have a great night! Paul

Good morning Parents and Guardians, There was no “playbook” for how to “do school” in a pandemic. As such, we’ve researched, learned, implemented, adjusted, succeeded in some cases, and temporarily failed in other cases. One thing we haven’t done is stopped trying to do our best for our kids. One thing we’ve heard consistently from parents about our “virtual or remote” environment is “We want R-P teachers teaching our kids.” Well, while it won’t be easy, we have figured out how to make that happen, while still honoring every request for either F2F (face-to-face) or virtual. If you want to learn the specifics, at the end of this message is a 14 minute YouTube video where I explain what will likely be happening for the 2nd semester. The video was created for us to use as a springboard for preparing for 2nd semester. It is relevant to each of you and your students as you prepare for the 2nd semester, beginning on January 25, 2021. If you don’t want to watch the video, here is the “gist”: Whether you choose F2F or Virtual, it will be with a Reeths-Puffer teacher. There are multiple ways to accomplish this, and they are spelled out in the video. IF you fell in love with Edmentum first semester and would be devastated to not have it, we have a limited number of licenses for 2nd semester. You would just need to let your child’s building Principal know that. Because this is NEW information (R-P teachers teaching virtual), it is only fair to re-survey people to get their choice based upon this new information. Expect a survey to come out from your student’s building Principal this week. I’m asking that you consider your choice and we need 100% of parents to complete the survey. At the deadline of the most recent survey, only 79% of people had made a choice. We can’t make great decisions for kids and staff without accurate information. The survey will literally be one question; F2F or virtual for the 2nd semester. FOR SPECIFIC DETAILS- Please watch the video NEXT STEPS- 100% completion of 2nd semester survey Here is a link to the video: https://youtu.be/co8nul9LHeI Stay well, Rockets! Sincerely, Steve
