School Update as of 3/24:

Yesterday, Governor Kemp announced the need for new restrictions to be put in place in order to help remain safe. One of these measures prohibits RTCA from having students in a normal classroom setting until at least April 6, 2020. Considering this information, we have decided that it is in our best interest to keep students away from school until at least April 13, 2020. Our regularly scheduled spring break is April 6th through April 10th. If we are able to return, we will do so on April 13, 2020. This is the same time table that the GISA has set for athletics.

These are very stressful times that we are facing and it will take an extraordinary amount of patience from everyone to maintain a working relationship between all members of our school community. Teachers and administrators are here to help. If you need us, please reach out and we will do whatever it takes to help provide instruction for our students.

Thank you and take care,

Travis Absher
Head of School
