    WILL ROGERS MIDDLE SCHOOL

     

     

    August 1, 2020

     

    On behalf of the Will Rogers staff, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year. We are excited to be back for another great year at Will Rogers. As most of you know, Sacramento County is on the governor’s watch list and all schools in Sacramento County are to begin the year in distance learning, which means, unfortunately, that Will Rogers and all other schools in San Juan Unified and Sacramento County will be continuing with distance learning. Will Rogers teachers are committed to making distance learning as successful for your child as if they were here with us in person. Our administration will be working closely with teachers, parents, students and our district so that your families’ distance learning interaction will be better than your experience in the Spring. We look forward to updating you on all of the improvements and changes that are being implemented this school year.

     

    Although I may not be able to answer all of the questions you may have just yet, below is some important information you may find helpful. You will be receiving more information about the following items next week, some of which need to be signed and turned in on the day of our material pickup (August 6th and 7th).
