Dear Roxbury Prep Families, 

We write with a renewed feeling of hope as vaccinations become more readily available across all of our regions and as the weather becomes warmer. At the same time, we continue to feel upset and disheartened by the events around us -- mass shootings, increased violence against our Asian-American Pacific Islander community, and another tragic killing of a Black man, Daunte Wright, at the hands of the police.

During these times of challenge, we take solace in this community and we draw strength from seeing so many of our scholars now back learning and laughing in our classrooms. And we remain even more grateful for and committed to being a support to you and your children. Thank you for being a part of our Uncommon community.

School Updates

In Person Learning Update:

We are excited to welcome back all Roxbury Prep Middle School students who have chosen to attend school in-person, 5 days a week starting the week of April 26, 2021. Students and families have the option to remain fully remote for the remainder of the school year, but Roxbury Prep will no longer be offering a hybrid option (in-person 2 days/week) at our middle schools. Please check with your school leader for the exact start date at each middle school campus. The Education Commissioner has not yet set a date for high schools to return to full, in-person learning. We will update you as soon as that date becomes available.

Spread the word!

Roxbury Prep is still accepting applications for 5th-9th grade!

More new families learn about Roxbury Prep through word of mouth than any other source. Help us get the word out! Encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to apply today at www.applybostoncharters.org. Questions? Contact Roxbury Prep Admissions at admission@roxburyprep.org or 617-858-1306.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information:

If you are looking to sign up for Covid-19 vaccine in Boston or have questions about the vaccines, below are some resources that might be helpful.

Parent / Guardian Spring Survey:

Later this month we will launch our spring survey for all parents and guardians across our schools. As with our mid-year survey, this is a key opportunity for you to share your thoughts and feedback with us as we work to provide the best education for your scholar(s). The survey will open on Monday 4/26 and close on Sunday 5/9. We look forward to hearing from you!

Resources

Wellness Corner:

During the months of April, May, and June we will be sharing resources from all five of our themes this year – Intellectual, Physical, Emotional, Social, and Spiritual Wellness!

Parent Resources:

Check out this folder for some parent resources about the following:

  • Resources for remote learning
  • Parent information on Google Classroom
  • Fun virtual activities and games for the whole family

Food Baskets Available:

Roxbury Prep’s Parent Partners for Advocacy (PPFA) group is assembling and distributing food baskets for families. If you’d like to receive a basket, please fill out this survey. Your information will not be shared.

Support Funding of the Charter School Program (CSP):

Massachusetts's charter schools led the way in providing creative educational options during the pandemic with student learning gains outpacing other states across the nation. Charter schools are positively impacting children and their families and delivering game-changing outcomes for those students who need quality public schools the most. Despite so much forward movement, these facts remain: the future of charter school federal funding is still at risk.

This week is the deadline for letters to the House of Appropriations subcommittee that decides on education funding. Contact your congressional representative TODAY to make sure they don’t forget what is at stake. Help us protect public school options for students so that every child can go to a school that works best for them and meets their individual needs. Massachusetts's students are counting on us.
