Ranger Weekly Update

August 23-29, 2020

 

Book Distribution is This Week

Due to COVID, Rincon is required to issue textbooks in a “drive-thru” fashion. Although this is not an idyllic way to distribute books, we have been planning and preparing in hopes that the process will function as smoothly as possible. Please see the details and schedule below...

  • Return any textbooks, library books, class books, calculators and/or other supplies that were school-issued during the 2019-2020 school year at this time, as well. (excluding school issued computers unless they are not being used)

All Staff Members Working the Distribution Will Wear Masks

  1. Following the schedule below, cars will enter the administration building gate into the Arcadia parking lot loop, located at the far east side of the school.
  2. Cars will follow the parking lot circle and stop in front of the bookstore station.
  3. Parents and/or students will remain in their vehicle at all times.
  4. An employee will greet you at your car and ask for the student name, spelling of the name, and student ID number.
  5. The student’s books will then be rounded up according to his/her current schedule.
  6. Books will then be scanned and checked out to that student and delivered back to the car through the car window.
  7. Cars will exit out the softball gate, south of the school to eliminate as much traffic back-up as possible.
  • Students who miss class to come pick up books will be excused from their ZOOM meetings.
  • We encourage families/students who do not have access to a vehicle to bring an empty bag or backpack to make carrying the books home easier.

-Students/families without access to a vehicle can report to the administration building and will form a line in the shade near the bookstore station, wearing a mask, while observing social distancing.

We will do our best to get families in and out as quickly as possible. However, please keep in mind, there may be some vehicles that have multiple students in them requiring our staff to find multiple books corresponding with several classes, which will take some time to gather. For families who have students at multiple grade levels, you only need to make one trip to the school for the books. Thank you, in advance, for your patience, understanding and adherence as closely as possible to the schedule. Our staff is willing to brave the heat to make sure our students have the materials they need to be successful in their ZOOM classes.

We will be closing promptly each day at 11:30 a.m. We will not be accepting cars that drive through the gate at 11:30 a.m. so please plan to arrive within your designated time frame, at least fifteen minutes prior to 11:30 a.m.

Tutoring Opportunities

  • After Hours Tutoring: Starting Monday, August 24th, there will be after-hours tutoring available on ZOOM for students who need support with their studies. Tutoring will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-4:45 p.m. by certified teachers.

 

General Studies/Technology Support                      ZOOM ID# 858 0187 7307

 

English/History Support                                                 ZOOM ID# 884 3048 9264

 

Math/Science Support                                                   ZOOM ID# 869 3488 18942

 

Students may join the tutoring session anytime during 3:15-4:45 p.m. if they have questions or need help with their studies. Sometimes working with a teacher other than their own teacher in a smaller one-on-one setting may help students to understand the material more clearly.

 

  • Conference Period: Teachers are required to be available on ZOOM two mornings a week to provide individualized support students who need it. Students can log on to their teacher’s zoom during conference period to get direct support from their teachers.

 

  • Unity Club: The Unity Club is students tutoring students. It can be useful for students to hear from other students who have a strong grasp of the material. We also know that teaching material to someone else helps even those who are excelling to develop a deeper understanding of the material when they have to explain the material to someone else. If you are interested in this option, click on the link below…

 

 

Athletics

For questions about athletics, please contact our Athletic Director, Kellin Lovegren at Kellin.Lovegren@tusd1.org or our Activities Assistant, Tina Rowe at Kristina.Rowe@tusd1.org

 

Please reference the email that was sent out on August 18th for detailed information.

For families whose students still need school meals, click on the link below for more information.

www.tusd1.org/GrabAndGo   or call 225-4700 for more information.

 

School Counseling Support for Students

Counselors have been working hard to develop a schedule to provide remote social emotional support to our students during this time. Their schedule includes activities such as informal lunch time hang out sessions where students can go to socialize during their lunch break, freshmen meet and greet sessions, self-care support groups, AP and Dual Enrollment student sessions, etc. all designed to give students a remote social experience so they can be more connected to their peers. Please see the attachment for the complete list of counseling department social and support sessions that will be offered.

 

Scholarship Information

See the attached College Bulletin for information on scholarships, college, and contact information from our College and Career department.

 

Families Still Needing Technology Assistance

Please contact Vicki Saunders at vicki.saunders@tusd1.org or call and leave a message at 232-5706. Messages will be returned in the order they are received. 


 
Students Interested in Reading: Library Resources

If you have a student who is looking for a good book to read, your RUHS library has a couple of suggestions for connecting them with one. 

The Pima County Public Library has an excellent assortment of YA ebooks.  It is straightforward to get a library card online or by phone. You will be able to check out books and read them on a tablet, phone, or computer. Find more information at: https://www.library.pima.gov/getalibrarycard/ 

 

If your student would rather have a print book, we are offering curbside pickup! This service will take place on Wednesdays, starting August 26th from 4pm – 5pm, in front of the school on Arcadia.  If you are walking up, please wear a mask.  

To check out a book: 

  • Place a hold on the book in the library catalog. (https://ruhslib.weebly.com/catalog.html) or by emailing a librarian. Students will receive a confirmation email from a librarian. (frerking@tusd1.orgor kim.grimes@tusd1.org
  • Pickup and Dropoff will be every Wednesday from 4pm-5pm.
  • Please return previously checked out books before checking out new ones.
  • When books are returned, we will quarantine them for 3 days before reshelving or recirculating.

Rincon Weekly Update

Week of August 16-22, 2020

 

Remote Learning Continues…

Originally, we were hoping to be able to allow any students who wanted to return to school on August 17th the opportunity to return. Unfortunately, health and safety guidelines do not permit this to happen at this time.

Until further notice, the vast majority of Rincon students will be required to continue learning from home until further notice.

Based on guidance from the Pima County Health Department for our schools, we currently have limited capacity for students returning to their school campus.  Due to health department COVID Data, we are prioritizing “At Risk” students who require in-person support services.  If you have not been contacted by Rincon staff directly, your student does not fall into our “At Risk” student group, which means your child will continue to learn remotely at home until health department guidance allows for increasing our capacity for students in the schools.

If you are a family that needs child supervision, but your student(s) do not fall into the “At Risk” category, see the information below shared with TUSD by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

For the month of August, the Boys & Girls Clubs is providing a day program for youth ages 7-17. The program runs daily from 8:30am-5:30pm and they serve breakfast and lunch.

Youth may bring their laptops or school work to the program and they will receive assistance from the B&G Clubs staff.

There is a $50 flat fee for the month of August and there are scholarships available

***Social distancing and safety measures will be enforced.
***Please be advised, space is limited and acceptance is determined by a staff to youth ratio of 1 to 8.
***At this time, this program is only for the month of August and will be assessed next month as schools make decisions about their method of instruction.

https://www.bgca.org/?fbclid=IwAR1hIAh4WN0kyHLFP3TJDuAeGprAe_8RW1Ycuv3lpeM0QgHSjQFknfx-rio

 

ZOOM

If your child is ever experiencing issues getting on to ZOOM using Clever or Teams, there is another way to enter a zoom meeting effectively using the ZOOM ID number.

 

Go onto zoom.us>Click on Sign In>Sign in using tusd email and password>Click on Join a Meeting>then follow the prompts to enter the meeting ID number (and password if there is one)

 

This should help your child get into zoom even he/she cannot access Clever or Teams.

 

Once in the ZOOM meeting, please encourage your child to use their camera while present in ZOOM meetings. Teachers are eager to get to know their students and the “face to face” interaction enhances student engagement. This is preferred by most teachers, knowing that it is easy for students to log into zoom without their camera on, then disengage from the activities because they are not on camera.

 

Teachers will be utilizing a variety of methods to ensure students are engaging in the zoom sessions. At times, these activities will result in points issued toward student grades. If a child is not engaging, they may miss out on the opportunity to earn participation points which could have a negative impact on their overall semester grade.

 

Attendance During Remote Learning

Teachers are taking attendance in zoom meetings. Student attendance is still being collected and reported to the state. If your child is going to miss or missed a zoom meeting, you may contact Vicki Saunders at 520-232-5706 and leave a message to report the absence. Please leave her a brief message with your child’s first and last name. There is also a feature on ParentVUE that parents can update under the attendance tab, labeled time tracker where parents can verify that their child was working if they could not attend class. Vicki will be able to walk you through this process. However, it is important to remember that during remote learning, students are still able to work and complete their assignments posted in Teams, even when they are not present in their zoom meetings, so they should be looking in Teams to stay on top of their daily work, even when they have to miss a zoom meeting.

 

ACT for Class of 2021

TUSD is planning to give our current seniors the ACT they missed last Spring as school is allowed to return. If we are back in full session by October, TUSD high schools will offer the ACT to all of our Class of 2021 students this October.

 

Site Council Parent Members Needed

If you’ve been looking to get involved as a parent at Rincon, Site Council is a great opportunity to be a part of Rincon’s decision-making body. The site council meets one Tuesday a month, typically from 3-4 p.m. We will begin the year holding site council ZOOM meetings until we can resume to in-person meetings. If you are interested in serving as a parent representative on the site council, please contact our site council president, Helen Voysey, at Helen.Voysey@tusd1.org Our first meeting will be held August 18th via zoom from 3-4 p.m.

 

Open House Meet the Teacher Night Via ZOOM

August 18th from 5:45-7:25 p.m. detailed zoom schedule is forthcoming

Athletics

At this time, athletics have not been given final approval to begin. However, starting next week, TUSD has given athletic department the approval to begin conditioning session, outdoors, that are socially distance appropriate. More information regarding this process will be forthcoming from our athletic department very soon.

 

Teacher’s Hours

As you all know, our teachers put time into developing their lessons, pulling resources and grading student work that extends well beyond their teacher contract time. However, it is especially important during this era of remote learning that students and parents remember that teachers have families and private lives the same as everyone else. Teachers are expected to be available to students and families from 7:45 a.m.-3:15 p.m. This means that if students are emailing their teachers for help or with questions at 7:15 p.m. they will most likely not get a response until the following day. We set the expectation for our staff that they are to respond to email inquiries to the best of their ability within 48 hours of receiving them. Students who have questions or need help with work should be attending their teacher’s conference period hours in the morning where they will get immediate feedback and support.

 

Thank you to all our families for their patience and grace as we develop and learn new systems to serve our students to the best of our abilities. We are so excited to be back in session and to be seeing our students again!

Rincon Weekly Update

March 7-13, 2021

This week marks the end of the third quarter, indicating that we are halfway through the second semester. Official progress grades will be posted in ParentVUE the week of March 15th. Although these grades will not be posted on a student’s transcripts, they are still an important indicator of performance this semester. However, it’s important to note that with half a semester left, students still have the opportunity to

turn their grades around in the last 9 weeks of school. Make sure your student stays motivated to finish the semester strong.

Information about summer school and summer programs will be forthcoming. We will most likely be able to share out summer information in mid-April.

Graduation Update

TUSD is making it a priority to offer some form of in-person graduation ceremony this year. Right now, if this approved by the Pima County Health Department (PCHD), students would be allowed to bring two guests to watch their graduation in-person. We are hoping that as time progresses, the COVID situation will improve and we may be able to expand the number of guests each graduate is allowed to invite. However, this plan is contingent upon the PCHD approving a graduation with the hope that COVID numbers will continue to decrease. Graduation for seniors will be May 27th at 7:00 p.m. in our stadium.

For the family members at home who cannot watch the ceremony in-person, Pixalot will be streaming the ceremony, live, free of charge.

In-person vs. Remote Information

This section has information for students who are continuing REMOTE LEARNING:

If you are a family that chose the hybrid model, you may skip this section.

 

REMOTE LEARNING

Students who have chosen the remote learning schedule, will attend zoom classes in the afternoons, exactly the way they have been. The only difference is that instead of having their three zoom classes spread-out throughout the day, they will have all three of their zoom classes back-to-back on Mondays/Tuesdays/Thursdays/Fridays. Wednesdays will be a full day of periods 1-6 zoom classes.

 

  • Attendance is expected and will be taken in the zoom classes.
  • Every hour of live instruction in zoom will be accompanied by one hour of asynchronous learning.
    • In simplistic terms, your student will have one hour of homework for every hour of instruction.
      • It is recommended that remote students develop a schedule for their learning by either getting up in the mornings to work on their asynchronous work from 8:00-11:00 a.m. prior to their live, zoom instruction beginning OR by continuing their asynchronous studies from 3:15-6:15 p.m. after their zoom classes have finished.

 

REMOTE LEARNING BELL SCHEDULE Starting March 22nd 

  

This section has information for students who are beginning In-Person LEARNING:

If you are a family that chose the remote model, you may skip this section.

 

In-Person LEARNING

Students who have chosen the hybrid learning schedule, will attend in-person classes in the mornings following *strictly enforced safety protocols. On Wednesdays, the campus will be closed for deep cleaning and all students will attend periods 1-6 on zoom, in the same fashion we have been using this year.

 

SAFETY PROTOCOLS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION

Only students who have chosen the in-person, hybrid model can report to campus on March 22nd. We have been keeping a careful eye on class sizes and will not have room to accommodate additional students safely.

 

  • All students MUST wear a mask at all times, covering their nose.
    • If a student is not taking this requirement seriously, for the protection of themselves and everyone around them, they will be required to return to the remote learning model as this violates public health code.
  • Students must observe 6 feet of social distancing.
    • Hallways/stairwells are divided in half. Moving foot traffic will always remain on the right side of the hallway/stairwells, much like a roadway.
    • Student congregation, holding hands, hugging, high fiving, etc. is not permitted.
    • When standing still in lines or waiting outside of classrooms for teachers to finish disinfecting their rooms between classes, students must stand on a green dot floor marking.
  • All students MUST bring their portable learning device (laptop/ipad/tablet) with them to school, fully charged every day as they will be used in class in place of textbooks and handouts.
  • There will be no “free roaming” on campus. Students will not be allowed to use the library, auditorium, gymnasium, counseling offices or any other common area to hang out before, during or after school.
  • Breakfast will be served for those who need it starting at 7:45 a.m. Students must sit at a green dot table marking in the lunchroom while eating or may take their meal outside.
    • Please do not arrive on campus prior to 7:45 a.m.
  • As an added safety and security measure, all students will enter campus through one of the two open gates off Arcadia Blvd. All gates will be open at dismissal.
  • The gate between the administration building in the ramada area will be used for all students to enter campus.
    • Students will not be permitted to use the administration building as a pass through to the other buildings.
  • Lunches will be served as grab-n-go meals, so that students may take a lunch with them as they are exiting campus. On Tuesdays, food service will pack two meals into the grab-n-go lunches so that students will have meals for Wednesday when they are participating in remote learning.
    • Campus will be cleared in after school at 11:45 a.m.
    • If you are picking your student up, please make sure you are here before 11:45 a.m.
  • Students will not be allowed to play football, soccer, or basketball in the center courtyard or on the basketball courts.
  • Water fountains will be taped off for personal use.
    • Please make sure students bring a full water bottle to school.
  • At this time, no lockers will be issued as there is no way to properly social distance students while utilizing the lockers.
    • Backpacks are recommended to help protect students’ portable learning devices.

 

The school will follow all Pima County health and safety guidelines.

 

All students must conduct a health check each morning at home prior to arriving at school. If any of these questions prompt a YES response, the student MUST stay home.

 

  1. Have you been in close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 within the past 14 days? Definition of close contact: In contact with someone for longer than 15 minutes and less than 6 ft from someone without the use of face covering.
  2. Have you had a fever (100° or greater), felt feverish, or have had chills in the last 72 hours?
  3. Are you experiencing any new or unexplained respiratory symptoms including a cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, or runny nose?
  4. Are you experiencing any new or unexplained muscle aches, headache, fatigue, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea?
  5. Have you experienced any new or unexplained change in your sense of taste or smell?

Students who have these symptoms, call out sick with these symptoms or who report to the nurse’s office displaying these symptoms must begin the quarantining process immediately. A guardian will be required to pick up a student with these symptoms from school. Please see the attached document regarding COVID-19 protocols for illness and quarantine duration. 

Academic Protocols and Procedures

  • Attendance is expected and will be taken every period.
  • Every hour of live instruction will be accompanied by one hour of asynchronous learning.
    • In simplistic terms, expect your student to have one hour of homework for every hour of instruction.
      • It is recommended that hybrid students develop a schedule for their learning by continuing their studies from 1:00-4:00 p.m. when they get home from school, following their lunch break.

 

In-Person LEARNING BELL SCHEDULE Starting March 22nd 

 

Parking Passes: Rincon has enough parking passes for all student drivers. For students who will be driving to school, please complete the Student Parking Registration form and email it, accompanied by a photo of the student’s driver license and insurance card, to Areli.Zapata@tusd1.org for processing. When students arrive on campus, they can pay the $6 fee in the finance office.

  • For the first few days of school, we will allow students to park in the student parking lot off Arcadia Blvd. by the softball field without a parking. We will start enforcing parking permits starting the week of November 16th.

 

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Route: Please see the attached student drop-off map that is attached. We ask that you not stop to let your child out until you have turned the corner after the auto shop bay. This helps to prevent traffic back-up and keeps the line moving smoothly.

 

 

School Map and School Tour: For students new to Rincon, please open the attached school map. Our student council will be sharing a school-tour video of Rincon on Instagram. If you’d like to refer to the campus map while watching the tour, go to the rinconstudentcouncil page on Instagram and follow along. School personnel will also be available on campus to help show new students where to go.

  • Students: Please write down or bring a printed copy of your schedule, with room numbers on it, so you know where you need to go.

 

Have a great four-day school week and enjoy your spring break!!! This information will be sent out over spring, as well, to help remind families of the upcoming changes in our bell schedule.

Rincon Weekly Update

January10-16, 2021

 

Happy New Year, Ranger Families!

As everyone is most likely aware, there has been a spike in COVID-19 cases across Arizona. Unfortunately, this means we will have to continue remote learning until further notice. The upside…our students have a full semester of remote learning under their holsters (that was a corny Ranger reference ??) so the hope is that their experience last semester will help them to find greater success this semester. We have a lot of resources available to support students! Please make sure your student is taking advantage of all the help that is available to help them succeed.

 

Books and Technology

During remote learning, our finance office is still open to help families with their technology needs and to collect/distribute text books from 7:30-11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

During these hours your student can get a student ID,  pay fines and fees, receive books you are no longer using or check out books.

Students who have fines for books from last school year need to return the book/s or pay the fines if they have lost the book.  We’d prefer to have the book but if it is absolutely not found you can pay the fine or there is other options available.  There are ways to replace a lost book which may be cheaper than paying the fine. Please call our office at 232-5613 or 232-5642 for more information.

For students who need to return books or drop off paperwork, etc., we also have a “drop-box window” open in front of the administration building Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. if you cannot make it to the books store before 11:30 a.m.

 

Winter Sports Cancelled

We just received word from the AIA that all winter sports have been canceled.  This may be difficult for some students, especially those seniors who will not be able to compete in their final season.  If there are any athletes who express a need to talk or need some help coping, please have them reach out to their counselor.  Our coaches are feeling the loss, too.

The FAFSA opens every year on October 1st. Every year you are in college, you need to fill out the FAFSA- it’s like a renewable scholarship. The first step in filling out your FAFSA is establishing an FSA ID (your username and password) for both you and your parent at www.fsaid.gov  Once you have your FSA ID, you can begin on your FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov What Is the FAFSA? The FAFSA is an acronym that stands for the Free Application for Federal Student AidColleges and universities use this form to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, educational loans, and work-study programs.

If you're hoping for any government or school financial aid for college, you have to file a FAFSA. See the attachment for the FSA ID and the FAFSA worksheet to see all of the information you will need to properly fill out the FAFSA.

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan

 These have been hard times for all of us. Don’t give up and remember, every failure brings success that much closer. Have a wonderful week!

Rincon Ranger Weekly Update

Benchmark Exams

Please encourage your student to try his/her best on the benchmark and to take them seriously as they will be used to assess student mastery of the standards they are learning.

When: 
• Quarter 1 - BM Window: Sept. 21 – Oct. 8
• Quarter 2 - BM Window: Dec. 7 – Dec. 17 (Writing Prompt: Nov. 28 – Dec. 17)
• Quarter 3 - BM Window: Mar. 1 – Mar. 11

Purpose: TUSD benchmark assessments will be administered to all students in the same course and/or grade level in the district on a quarterly basis for Quarters 1, 2 and 3. They will focus on reading and mathematics skills, reflects the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards, and are aligned to the District’s curriculum pacing guide. These assessments are intended to measure students’ progress through the curriculum. Teachers can use these interim assessments to evaluate the degree to which students have performed selected standards from that quarter in their classrooms and can compare their results with the district averages.

Benchmarks will be administered using state testing protocols to provide practice opportunities in advance of state testing. 

Testing Protocol:

NEW: 

-The benchmark tests in grades 6 – 12 will be timed to discourage students looking up answers. 

-For remote testing, cameras must be ‘on’ to monitor students during testing.

• Grades 9-11: 75 minutes for ELA and 75 minutes for Math
• Grade 12: 45 minutes for Reading and 45 minutes for Math


• Students in grades 2 – 11 will take the SchoolCity Math & ELA benchmarks at the end of quarters 1 – 3 online.

• NEW: Students in grade 12 will take the ACT Math & ELA (Reading) practice test in SchoolCity as a benchmark that is required for Quarter 1 only.
 

Distance Learning Library Resource

Good news!  Students can now check out ebooks and audiobooks from the Pima County Public library through their TUSD Sora account.  No public library card is needed.  The app works the same way on a phone or tablet. This presentation will show you how to check them out.  For help, you can contact RUHS librarians Beth Frerking or Kim Grimes.

 

Mark Your Calendar

For parents interesting in learning more about Rincon's Title I status, we will be hosting a parent meeting on ZOOM September 30th at 5:00 p.m. The ZOOM link will be sent out in next week's weekly update. 

 

Reminder: Report Student Absences

Don't forget, even though we are participating in remote learning, we still need to have parents contact the school when students are not going to attend their ZOOM classes. Students who accumulate too many absences in any particular class are at risk of being dropped from that class if we do not have a parent contact us related to the absence. Please call 520-232-5602 or email Vicki Saunders at vicki.saunders@tusd1.org if your child will be absent from a zoom class. 

 

Pima College and U of A Virtual Engineering for Students

Students will get a behind-the-scenes insight to what engineering work actually looks like. Local engineers will come into our Zoom call, do a quick presentation on their company, their career, and their personal experiences coming into the engineering profession, and will finish with a student-centered Q&A. The show is scheduled for next week, 9/21 - 9/25, and will feature different engineering companies for every afternoon of that workweek. See attachment for details.

Reminder: Students MUST Use TUSD Accounts

As of Friday morning, Sept. 4, the Zoom meeting option has been locked so that only TUSD-Authenticated Users will be able to join teacher-ledZoom meetings. This security setting was suspended at the start of the school year to facilitate student access but now needs to be restored for CIPA compliance.

- All Zoom classroom participants will have to authenticate using their TUSD credentials.

Only Zoom accounts based on email addresses ending in tusd1.org and s.tusd1.org will be able to join Zoom classroom meetings

 

Student Email

Students should be checking their TUSD email at least once a day Monday-Friday. Teachers use this to send out reminders and information pertinent to their classes. Students’ email address is matric#@s.tusd1.organd their password is the same as their log-in password. They can find access to their emails by going into their Clever account, clicking on the red Office365 icon, then clicking on the blue, envelope looking icon labeled Outlook. Outlook houses TUSD email. Doing this will help students to stay more connected to their classes and teachers. Also, this can be used for students to communicate with their teachers.

 

Free Meals

USDA announced yesterday that is has extended the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) waiver through December 31, 2020 (or until federal funding runs out). What this means is effective starting 9/2 we can revert back to operating under SFSP for which meals are free to all children 18 and under, which applies to our meals on site (for the few students who are currently attending learning labs) and Grab-n-Go meals on our bus routes. TUSD no longer has to only provide meals to TUSD enrolled students and no longer has to account for each meal based on individual student eligibility for free, reduced or paid meals. This is great news to make meals more accessible to all in our community during these challenging times. Please share with family, friends and neighbors who may benefit from free meals at our Grab-n-Go bus stops.

Ranger Weekly Update

August 30-September 5

 

Student Online Security and Tech Support

All students were given a generic password when they enrolled at Rincon. To eliminate the opportunity for students to easily hack into to student accounts, we encourage all students to change their passwords to protect their information. This will help alleviate the opportunity for students to crash ZOOM classes, posing as someone else. Please see the attachment below for instructions on how to change the password. If you run into difficulty doing this, contact Vicki Saunders at vicki.saunders@tusd1.orgwith your name, student ID number and the new password you want to use, and she can easily reset your password for you.

 

Also, all students were issued a TUSD email account. For all students, it is their matric number followed by @s.tusd1.org  The password will be the same password they use for their log-in. Please encourage your student to check their email regularly, as teachers will send out notices, reminders, etc. that will help your student to stay on top of what is going on in their classes.

 

IF any parents are struggling to support students with their online learning, feel free to pop into our “General Studies/Technology Support” after school tutoring session any time, to get some individualized help with navigating TEAMS, ZOOM, Clever and StudenVUE. Mr. Lantz will be available to help and if he cannot, he will take your name and pass it along to someone who can follow up with you to assist. See tutoring schedule below for days, times and the zoom link. You will need to use your student’s zoom account in order to log-in.

 

Another technology resource available to our families, if you are struggling with your device, is TSAnswers@tusd1.org This is a TUSD resource where technology questions are fielded by TUSD technology technicians. They will be able to assist you if you are having issues with your laptop.

 

TUTORING

There is tutoring available for one-on-one help Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-4:45 p.m.

  • Tutoring is led by certified teachers.

General Studies/Technology Support                      ZOOM ID# 858 0187 7307

 

English/History Support                                                 ZOOM ID# 884 3048 9264

 

Math/Science Support                                                   ZOOM ID# 869 3488 18942

Students may join the tutoring session anytime during 3:15-4:45 p.m. if they have questions or need help with their studies. Sometimes working with a teacher other than their own teacher in a smaller one-on-one setting may help students to understand the material more clearly.

Conference periods are also available for students to receive individualized help from their own teachers, two mornings a week.

As we are moving into week four of school, if you notice your student’s grades slipping, please encourage him/her to utilize these opportunities to get extra help, even if the extra help is related to learning how to navigate their technology more effectively.

 

Student Code of Conduct

If you would like to review the 2020-2021 Student of Code Conduct, it is located at TUSD1.org/TheCode

Please note, we have had some students engaging in inappropriate behaviors in ZOOM class sessions and in the class message boards. Please discuss this with your student to ensure that he/she is aware that the Student Code of Conduct will be enforced related to these behaviors. This is another reason it is essential for students to change their passwords and do not share them with anyone.

 

ACT/SAT Update

Due to COVID and our current situation of having all Quarter 1 instruction online, TUSD has decided that we will not be able to provide ACT in October for the 2021 Cohort. Due to social distancing it is not possible to provide safe testing and proctoring for our students and staff. Thankfully, Arizona Colleges are not requiring ACT for college admissions or merit aid for the 2021 cohort. This means that our cancelation of the ACT will not negatively impact Arizona college prospects for this cohort. If you have any questions please let me know.

 

Information Shared by the University of Arizona....

Merit scholarships for the 2021-22 academic year will be awarded based on students’ Core GPA as defined by the Arizona Board of Regents. Additionally, SAT and/or ACT scores will not be required for application to the following colleges for the 2021-22 academic year: College of Architecture; College of Engineering; College of Nursing; Eller College of Management; Planning & Landscape Architecture; and the University of Arizona Honors College.

More information about scholarships and our merit aid chart is available by clicking here.


Why has the University of Arizona made this change for the 2021-22 academic year?

COVID-19 has impacted many students’ ability to take the SAT and/or ACT due to more frequent test cancellations and fewer testing days and sites. Many universities across the country have also decided to suspend their SAT and/or ACT requirements for the 2021-22 academic year.

Will this impact the university’s admissions standards?

Our admissions standards are set by the Arizona Board of Regents and will not be changing. We have always been test-optional for admissions, but this year we are also removing the test requirement for merit scholarships. Arizona Wildcats are some of the best and brightest students in the nation, and we are confident that our next incoming class will be no exception.

If you’re doing this, why aren’t you test blind this year?

Our admissions practices have always followed a holistic approach that considers students on an individual basis. Many factors, including a student’s academic record and GPA, extracurriculars, notable experiences, and background, are considered before offering admission. Test scores have always been just one factor in a wider array. It became apparent with the many challenges this year that test scores are better suited to help a student clear an academic deficiency than add any additional stress or burden.

How will the university recognize AP/IB and honors classes, along with other accomplishments?

We value students who work hard and have big aspirations, and these qualities don’t go unnoticed. To reward students who have gone above and beyond, we offer a Dean’s Exemplary Award that is designed to acknowledge the completion of rigorous coursework.

How will the university enhance its student support and retention initiatives?

Students have access to a number of free resources, including academic support via the THINK TANK and SALT Center, as well as career guidance through Student Engagement and Career Development. Our Arizona Assurance program provides individualized support for Arizona students from low-income families, while First Cats helps first-generation college students cross the graduation finish line.

April 4-10, 2021

Mask Requirement: Thank you to all of our students, parents and staff for adhering to the mask requirement while on campus. We appreciate everyone’s respectful cooperation. The governor’s executive order did not undo former legislation that requires masks in schools.

Student IDs: All on-campus learners should have a student ID by the end of this week. If you are an in-person student and do not yet have a student ID, please make sure you stop into the finance office to have one made, as it will be required, moving forward.

Weekend Academy: If your child needs to recover a credit and cannot take summer school, weekend academy is a prime opportunity. Please see the attached information. The last session of the school year starts April 19th. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get back on track before the year is over. Also, for seniors who are worried about not graduating on time, this opportunity could help! See attachment below for registration information.

College Bulletin: See Attachment

Senior Events-

Graduation Update: TUSD has been given the “green light” to hold outdoor, in-person graduation. We have also been approved to extend the number of tickets graduates will get from 2 to 4. Each graduate will get 4 tickets to distribute as they see fit. Only people with a ticket will be admitted to the graduation ceremony, including children and seniors. Even though it is an outdoor event, masks will be required.

Senior Breakfast: We will hold our senior breakfast the morning of May 26th on campus starting at 8:15 a.m. To limit the amount of guests, this year only senior graduates will be invited.

Senior Meeting for Graduates and Parents: We are planning to have a senior meeting on ZOOM as soon as testing is over. We will then follow up and have another meeting on ZOOM for parents, who would also like to hear the same information. Meeting info will be sent out in the near future. Make sure all graduates have reached out to Jostens to get a cap and gown for the graduation ceremony. If you have questions or concerns related to your senior’s graduation status, please email your student’s counselor.

Senior Prom Event: Our student council is planning a small, outdoor senior prom event at the end of May. This year, the prom will only be open to seniors, to keep the event smaller, to allow space for distancing. Keep your eye out for details from our student council.

 

Thank you to everyone for your patience as circumstances are continuously changing. We are doing our best to keep you informed and plan things as quickly as we can in accordance with the changes.

 

TESTING INFORMATION (Reminder)

*Rincon High School will be administering standardized testing starting next week. Please read the testing plan carefully.

NOTE: THERE IS A SURVEY TO COMPLETE AT THE END OF THIS EMAIL TO HELP US PLAN FOR HOW MANY STUDENTS WILL BE ON CAMPUS and HOW MANY TUSD COMPUTING DEVICES WILL BE NEEDED.

  1. All tests, with the exception of the ASVAB, will be taken online, at school. Students MUST bring their TUSD computing device with them, fully charged, to school for testing. We will have computers available for students who do not have a TUSD device. Students MUST use a TUSD device for testing, due to testing security regulations.
  2. We will do our very best to keep students socially distanced during testing.
  3. All students are required to wear a face mask covering both their nose and mouth while on campus.

 

Next week, April 5-9, all in-person and remote classes will operate following the same schedule we started using on March 22nd. No changes. However, on two dates, students will be testing. 

 

 

  • The following week, April 12-16, there will be NO in-person classes on campus. All students will attend class from home on zoom, following the afternoon, remote schedule. 

 

  • Only students who are testing will be on campus the week of April 12-16, following the schedule below:

April 12th: 8:00-11:26 a.m. Reading A 10th Grade

April 13th: 8:00-11:26 a.m. Reading B 10th Grade

8:00-11:26 a.m. ACT 11th Grade

April 14th: Regular Schedule on ZOOM Periods 1-6

April 15th: 8:00-11:26 a.m. Math A 10th Grade

8:00-11:26 a.m. Science 11th Grade

April 16th: 8:00-11:26 a.m. Math B 10th Grade

When testing students are released at 11:26 a.m. they will grab a lunch and head home, so they can log on to their zoom classes starting at 12:11 p.m.

*Although standardized testing is a requirement of the state, the state has made concessions related to the typical mandates for testing, as they understand some families still are not comfortable sending their students to school. Please fill out the survey below to let us know if you will be sending your child to school on their assigned testing dates and to let us know if your child would need a TUSD loaner computer device while testing, if the device he/she is currently using is not portable. The survey only needs to be completed if you have 10th, 11th, or 12th grade student.

Rincon Ranger Weekly Update
October 4-10, 2020

NO SCHOOL: Friday, October 9th Teacher Grading Day
                        Monday-Friday, October 12th-16th Fall Break

End of the Quarter
This week is the last week of the first quarter, marking the halfway point of the semester. Remember, the only grades that are officially recorded on a student’s final transcript are the semester grades. However, it’s important to keep in mind that in high school, the semester grade is cumulative, starting the first day of school, ending the last day of the semester in December. The quarter grade reflects the student’s current, cumulative grade up to October 9th, giving you a strong indication of how your student is progressing. Although these grades will not be officially reflected on a student’s final transcript, they will be used to determine eligibility for sports/activity participation and will account for, in most cases, almost half of the final grade. We recommend that all parents/guardians check ParentVUE over the Fall break to see how your student has been performing for the first half of the semester. If your student is not making the progress you would like to see, it is important that you hold your student accountable to attending conference period tutoring sessions with their teachers and to attending the after school tutoring that is offered via zoom every Monday/Tuesday/Thursday from 3:15-4:45 p.m. led by highly qualified, certified teachers.

Return to Hybrid, In-person Learning
This Tuesday, October 6th, the TUSD Governing Board will be reviewing a plan for students to return to a hybrid model of in-person learning. If you are interested in hearing the plan and the board’s discussion, the meetings are live streamed for your viewing. The meeting will start this Tuesday evening at 5:30 p.m. To watch, click on http://govboard.tusd1.org/ and scroll to the section titled “Watch the Governing Board Meeting Live!” We will all be learning about the hybrid, in-person return to school plan together. As soon as we have specific, detailed information related to the approved hybrid, in-person instructional option, we will share it with our families.  

Senior Families: The FAFSA Application is Open (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Just Opened
All seniors interested in or even thinking about the possibility of going to college, filling out the FAFSA is a MUST! Federal dollars are distributed to students for a variety of reasons. Please do not assume your family will not qualify for federal student aid. It easy for a student and/or parent to set up a FSA ID number at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm . Once you have done this, it should take less than an hour to complete the FAFSA application at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa . The money you may be able to get to apply toward college(s) of your choice could be very well worth your time. Money is distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so apply as soon as possible. If you file early, you are considered for the greatest number of aid programs because money runs out in some programs.

Interested in Being a Part of Something…
Our swim team, led by coach Stacia Reeves, is looking for more Rincon swimmers. If you know how to swim and would like to be a part of a school community, reach out to Athletic Director Kellin Lovegren at Kellin.Lovegren@tusd1.org for more information about to get cleared to participate. Swimming is a sport where the more-the-merrier. Even though you are a part of team, swimming is an individualized sport. You do not have to be an extraordinary swimmer to participate. As long as you know some of the basics strokes and can manage to learn how to do a flip-turn, this could be the perfect activity for you.

Parents: Interested in Being a Part of Something...

Our PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is still looking to recruit members. If you are interested in serving as a PTA member, please contact Laura Grijalva at slgrijalva@msn.com

Financial Aid Assistance for College Information for Senior Families

The FAFSA opens every year on October 1st. Every year you are in college, you need to fill out the FAFSA- it’s like a renewable scholarship. The first step in filling out your FAFSA is establishing an FSA ID (your username and password) for both you and your parent at www.fsaid.gov  Once you have your FSA ID, you can begin on your FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov What Is the FAFSA? The FAFSA is an acronym that stands for the Free Application for Federal Student AidColleges and universities use this form to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, educational loans, and work-study programs. Therefore, even though the FAFSA is technically the application for federal aid, you have to fill it out to receive state and college-sponsored financial aid as well. If you're hoping for any government or school financial aid for college, you have to file a FAFSA. See the attachment for the FSA ID and the FAFSA worksheet to see all of the information you will need to properly fill out the FAFSA. Have Questions, join the College Club on Thursday, October 1st at 3:00 for a FAFSA Workshop. Students and parents are welcome to join.

TUSD Parent Survey: Returning to School Feedback

TUSD will be sending out a parent survey very soon, if you haven’t received it already in your email. It is imperative that parents/guardians complete the survey as it relates to returning to in-person schooling. In order to develop an appropriate plan, our school needs to have a solid idea of how many students plan to return to school on the tentative October 19th return date. Please make sure you look for this survey in your email. It will take less than five minutes to complete.

 

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan

 These have been hard times for all of us. Don’t give up and remember, every failure brings success that much closer. Have a wonderful week!

Yearbook Photo Make-Up Day CANCELLEDNEW Selfie Option Available 

(Applies Grades 9-11 ONLY)

We were just informed by our yearbook vendor that there is a program they developed to help schools get all students pictured in the yearbook.

 We are going to cancel the make-up picture day on Dec. 10th as a result of this new technology now being available. Therefore, ALL students, faculty and staff who did not get their picture taken on Nov. 19 or 20th should utilize the selfie program.

 For students who were able to make it to the photo days on campus, their professional photo will be included in the yearbook unless they did not like it. If they did not like it and would prefer to send in a selfie following the instructions below, that is acceptable.

For students who could not make it to the photo dates on campus, please submit your selfie to ensure you are included in the yearbook.

 The link to access the selfie program is: https://high5.id/p/d3av7. Students will need their matric number, staff will need their employee ID number.

 The link for video instructions is:  https://theox.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=a80f772e-5a3a-471b-8a26-ac86010f54ad

Selfies must be uploaded by December 17th! Don’t wait! Send in your selfie glamour shot ASAP to be included in the yearbook.

*Selfies must follow the precise guidelines and parameters spelled out in the attached instructions.

**Students who have not been issues student IDs will get one within the first few days upon returning to in-person school.

 

Gift Idea for Your Student

Headphones with a Microphone! We are anticipating that at some point soon we will have a form of hybrid instruction taking place. Whether your student chooses to continue remote learning or comes to school for in-person instruction, students will need a good set of headphones to use with their laptops. Having a pair of headphones with a microphone is a big bonus, allowing students to participate in class discussions verbally, if needed. Headphones also help drown out background noise, making it easier for your student to concentrate.
