Message Regarding School Opening 2020-2021

Plans for 2020-21 School YearThe River Mill Academy Board of Directors and school administrators announced that all students in Kindergarten through 12th Grade will begin the 2020-2021 school year on August 12 under Plan C: Remote Learning Only of the recently published StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit (K-12). A remote learning plan has been designed until the end of the first nine weeks of school, which is scheduled to end on October 9, 2020. 

We recognize that there is no substitute for the quality education our students receive while in the building; however, the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. Given the current increasing infection and hospitalization rates in our surrounding areas, we cannot justify putting members of our community at risk. 

New guidelines and tools have been put in place to improve the quality of remote learning for our staff and students. These guidelines, along with class schedules and teacher assignments will be released to our families in the coming weeks.
