Over the past several years, we have looked to enhance both the physical appearance of our buildings and the learning environment for our students. This summer, with the support of the ROWVA Public Schools Foundation, ROWVA Alumni, and the ROWVA Community, the Chemistry Lab renovation project began. As the superintendent, I have waited anxiously for this project to become a reality. While it is nearing completion, it will not be finished by our scheduled first day of student attendance. Our students, teachers, and community deserve to walk into a building that is ready to educate the minds of ROWVA Students on the first day of school. It is with sadness that I inform you that the start of the school year for teachers will be moved to August 19, and the first day for students will be August 20, 2019. I truly apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. If you have further questions, please contact me at the district office: 309-483-3711. We are excited to get everyone back in school, and I am looking forward to a great 2019-20 school year.
