The Transportation Director and I have been driving the roads this afternoon, and if the plows can't keep up, travel will definitely be unsafe prior to buses going out in the morning. In order to give everyone adequate time to prepare for this, ROWVA will utilize a remote learning day for tomorrow, February 15th. Because we are using a remote learning day, as long as it is safe, there will be evening activities as scheduled. I will update you all if this changes. Please stay safe and warm, and be ready for a day of learning tomorrow. - Superintendent Sornberger #rowvastrong

Due to inclement weather, tomorrow will be a remote learning day. Please follow the procedures that we normally do on these days (7-12 will be in session from 8-12 and elementary students should check Seesaw or Google Classroom). We hope this day will allow students to both learn and stay safe. If you have questions or need help tomorrow, do not hesitate to reach out via email to the teachers. Our goal is to make tomorrow as smooth as possible for the students so that they can still enjoy time to relax and spend time with family after their learning time. As always, I want thank you for your willingness to work together through this crazy year. Every day, each one of you shows what it means to be #rowvastrong - Superintdent Sornberger

The ROWVA School District will be out of school on January 26, 2021 due to inclement weather. The school district will not be utilizing a remote learning day for students. The district will be taking a snow day. I have had several inquiries about what a “Snow Day” looks like now in the world of remote learning. We have had enough taken from us this past year. I loved the first snow day as a kid and had great memories of being outside and taking in nature. As we educate through a pandemic, we must remember that kids need to be kids, and a snow day is the perfect reminder of that. This does not mean that we may not utilize remote learning days in the future for inclement weather. What it does mean, in this instance, is we want students to take a break and enjoy the opportunity to experience the magic of a snow day. #rowvastrong
As this school year continues to challenge us, Mother Nature has decided to remind us that she is still here ready to let the snow fly when necessary. With that being said, we will release today at 1:00. Our goal with an early release today is to get everyone home safely before the conditions for travel worsen. #rowvastrong
The following after school extracurricular activities are cancelled for today: Weights JH volleyball JH boys basketball HS girls basketball

To the ROWVA CUSD 208 Community Since April, the administration and Future Ready team have been working hard to prepare for the upcoming school year. Although this is the case, there are still a few items that are not in place that I feel are vital to opening safely. In order to give these items time to arrive, we will be utilizing two more of our allotted remote learning preparation days to start the school year. These will count as attendance days, so we will not be making them up at the end of the year. Our first day of student attendance will now be Monday, August 24th. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes everyone, but I want to make sure that all of our safety precautions are in place before we bring our students back into the building. If you have any questions, please contact the district office 309-483-3711 with concerns. Sincerely, Superintendent Sornberger
