January 28, 2021
Dear Parent or Guardian:
I am pleased to share information about an Extended Day Program designed to help your child succeed in school. You have been notified that your child is not making adequate progress and needs additional support to be successful.
Your child has been selected to participate in the Extended Day Program based on their standardized test scores, other assessments, teacher observations, and/or classroom performance. Students who participate in this program will have the opportunity to gain skills and strategies to improve their mastery of critical standards and skills.
Our Extended School Day program will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:15PM until 5:15PM and Saturdays from 9AM-12PM beginning February 8, 2021 and ending on May 22, 2021. This program is entirely free. Student to teacher ratio will be approximately 20 to 1. Bus transportation is available using community depot stops and not your students’ regular daily stop. High School students will have the option to request a Pasco County Public Transit bus pass in lieu of school transportation.
As an academic enhancement program that focuses on specific skills, if behavioral concerns or attendance issues develop, we may need to reconsider a student’s participation in this program. Space may be limited, so it is possible that you could be placed on a waiting list for participation. If you would like your child to be considered for the Extended Day Program, please click on and complete the link on the RRHS website which is included here: https://rrhs.pasco.k12.fl.us/mform/view.php?id=106065 by Monday, February 1, 2021.
Dr. Toni Zetzsche
