Coronavirus (COVID 19) Updates for Rocketship Bay Area Schools

Latest Update

Updated: May 1, 2020

All Rocketship Bay Area schools transitioned to distance learning on Monday, March 16 through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

Local districts, authorizers, and public health agencies announced that in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and to ensure the well-being of our students and school communities, schools will be closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.  There are no COVID-19 cases at any of our California Rocketship schools or offices. This is a public health measure to help communities mitigate the further spread of the virus.

Our teachers work so hard every day to bring your Rocketeer excellent instruction, personalized support, and engaging content. With very little notice, our teachers and school leaders pivoted from in-classroom learning to full online instruction. It’s been a lot of work, but it has also been very rewarding for all our educators to continue to support our Rocketeers. Therefore, in celebration of teacher appreciation week, we want to thank our educators with some extra time off. There will be no distance learning on May 8th and May 26th, so that our teachers can rest, relax, and spend time with their families.

Stay connected on your school’s private Facebook group. All our schools will use their school’s private Facebook groups page to share important updates and instructional information. Please be sure to create a Facebook account if you do not already have one and join your school’s Facebook group. If you need support, please reach out to your school’s Office Manager.

Free Meals for ALL Families. In order to best adhere to the area-wide shelter-in-place while still providing food for our families, starting on Monday, 3/30 meals will be available for anyone 18 or younger on Mondays and Thursdays ONLY at the following locations: 

    • San Jose (9am-1pm)

    • East Bay (9am-12pm)
      • Rocketship Futuro Academy (2351 Olivera Rd, Concord, CA 94520)

We will be handing out 3 breakfasts & 3 lunches to each individual under the age of 18. Due to restrictions on group gatherings, you will not be able to eat onsite, you will need to take your meals and eat at home. Please bring your own grocery bag to make carrying the meals easier.

State testing canceled. California has canceled all state testing for the 2019-2020 school year.
