As Ritenour plans to transition to Phase 2 of its Return to Learning Plan for Ritenour High School students in January 2021 for the second semester, we wanted to give families the opportunity to choose if their student(s) want to attend school virtually or the hybrid in-person option for the remainder of the school year.
Beginning this year, Ritenour will not be required to make up days when school buildings are closed due to unexpected short-term closures such as inclement weather, illness or utility outages. Instead, the district will implement an Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) Plan on these days.
