Good afternoon from your Rome Superintendent. Today we have received the news from the Governor and State Superintendent that schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This is not the news we hoped for, but the safety of our children and community is priority number 1. With this announcement, I would like our families to know that we will continue our Remote Learning Packets and meals through the last Thursday in May. When the Governor announces the end of the stay at home order we will be able to make a decision about a possible graduation ceremony in June or July. Please know we are working diligently to provide the services our students need. If your family needs additional meals please let is know ahead of time so we can provide them. Stay safe. Mr. Estill

On this day we will also be delivering the meals too, so our normal locations will not be open for meal pick up on Monday. Stay safe and continue social distancing.
