    Message from the Superintendent – Dec. 9, 2020

    Hello Roosevelt Community,
    I hope this message finds you well. At Roosevelt, our top priority is the safety, health and the well-being of our students, staff, and community. As we deal with the most challenging of times, we continue to make decisions based on the best interest of our Roosevelt students, staff, and families.


    Per our last communication, we made the decision to remain in a virtual learning setting at least until Winter Break. We have continued to monitor Maricopa County health data and currently the data is showing that the COVID-19 positivity rate has unfortunately increased exponentially within our South Phoenix community. Those data sets can be located at Maricopa County website.


    As a result, our district team has made the difficult decision to delay the start of an in-person learning option until at least the beginning of 3rd trimester, which occurs in mid-February, data permitting. For now, we believe that it is the right decision for our school district to remain in an all-virtual learning setting. We understand the importance of in-person learning and are committed to offering an experience, once it is safe to do so. Additional details and information will be provided in January 2021.
    We will continue to refine our virtual learning environment to provide a high-quality experience for all students and staff and will remain committed to providing the needed support for students and families to be successful this academic year. This means ongoing support with meals, broader on-site care support at all schools and technology/internet support. Please reach out to your school campus principal, teacher, counselor, social worker, or family engagement coordinator if your family is in need of any type of support.


    We would like to encourage you and your family to remain vigilant during this winter/holiday season by wearing masks, maintaining social and physical distance from other people outside of your households and continuing to wash hands frequently. It’s more important now than ever, in order to stop the spread of the virus.


    Please know that we are committed to working together to make the best decisions for all of our students, staff and families regarding a safe in-person return to school. As always, thank you for your support as we continue to make the best, most informed decisions for our district and community. 

    Be Bold. Be Well. Be Safe.
    Quintin Boyce, Ed.D.
    Superintendent

    RSD Taking Care of the Community 

    The needs of our community during this pandemic and school closure have been tremendous – but so has our amazing RSD community! Our district and campuses have stepped up to meet these needs and our remarkable employees continue to be on the front lines serving our students and families.

    During the week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, several schools purchased and donated turkeys and other food items for hundreds of our RSD and South Phoenix families. On Friday, November 20, our RSD team of social workers, family engagement coordinators, teachers, and school administrators came together to help feed more than 1,900 family members during a huge food distribution event held at John F. Kennedy and Greenfield Schools’ parking lots. The line of cars was literally lined up all the way down 10th Street and down Baseline Road. This particular effort was in partnership with St. Mary’s Food Bank and led by social workers, Jennifer Beaty and Fernando Araiza.

    Kudos to every RSD staff member who has been stepping up to serve meals, provide food boxes, gift cards, masks, and other donations to our students and families during this season.

    You are extraordinary front-line workers and we appreciate all that you are doing and so do our families. Many would not have had a Thanksgiving meal without RSD Angels like each of YOU!!! Watch Video of RSD in Action!
      


    Grateful for our Amazing Governing Board Leaders 

    As we reflect on all that we are grateful for this month – at Roosevelt we are very grateful to have great leaders. At our November 10, 2020 Governing Board meeting we highlighted our amazing resilient Governing Board Members, who passionately care about this community and who are helping to transform the lives of our “beautiful young people.” Our five Governing Board Members, President, Mr. Lawrence Robinson, Board Clerk, Ms. Michelle Campuzano, Mrs. Rosa Jones, Mrs. Norma Munoz and Ms. Nancy Pina-Gray, truly exemplify and demonstrate the vision and mission of this district  – and they have stayed the course during the most difficult of times and with tremendous fortitude – to make this district a successful, innovative and inclusive learning environment – and an overall beautiful place for every student to learn and every employee to work. We created this short video to honor them.


    Family Engagement Workshop Opportunities 

    Our district provides resources, workshops and events to help our families thrive. During this pandemic, it's even more important for us to come together and help each other. We will continue to update the Family & Community Engagement Workshop page frequently with new, virtual workshops and events. As you will notice, some of the virtual events are district-wide for all parents and families to attend and some are school based. 


    Bold Virtual Teaching Highlight Video

    As we all know, the 2020-21 school year has started off a lot differently than in prior years. Our students and teachers have boldly adapted to the methods of remote learning. This is in large part due to the commitment and dedication of our incredible Roosevelt teachers, who continue to navigate through these current circumstances to provide innovative learning at the highest levels possible.  Here is a short video highlighting some of the bold and innovating teaching that has been happening virtually. You will see clips from the Phoenix 11 TV segments, teachers virtually instructing their classes from their classrooms and our Exceptional Student Services team providing both online instruction and 1-on-1 services to our amazing students. Watch video below to see amazing teachers in action! Thank you for all you do!
