In full compliance with the Ministry of Education COVID-19 Health, Safety and Operational Guidelines for Schools, RSGC will operate in a year-long program from Grades 9-12. Classrooms will be physically set up in a way to allow for normalized student numbers, removing any unnecessary furniture to provide as much space as possible between students. Students will rotate through their Day 1 schedule for a four-week period of school days, at which point they will move to a Day 2 schedule for a four-week period of school days before returning to Day 1 again.
This model provides us with the consistency of everyone in a year-long structure, but the benefits of a smaller course load approach, four or fewer courses at a time. This modified approach also limits contact with those on campus, allows reliable traffic patterns, and provides flexibility transitioning to a remote model, should it become necessary. It also allows us to consider moving to our pre-pandemic 8-day schedule, allowing for flexibility as noted.
