Dear REMS Families,


Happy New Year!  I hope that you have had some time to spend the holidays with family, celebrate joyful moments as well as to recharge yourselves. It was certainly a great season for introspection, clarity and gratitude.  I am excited for the promise that 2021 hopes to offer all of you renewal, good health, and the continued courageous spirit of Crew.  


We are so excited to welcome back our crews to full in-person learning on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.  Monday, January 4th will serve as a workday for all DCSD teachers. While remote learning was challenging, I can’t tell you how many families have reached out to celebrate our amazing students and teachers and their ability to transition so smoothly between learning environments.  


Here are the most recent safety updates from DCSD: 

Please continue to refer to DCSD’s Road to Return for the most recent updates from our Interim Superintendent, Corey Wise. 

  • Here is the new Face Covering Guidance for students.  Please ensure that your child wears a mask that follows our new guidelines. 

  • We will continue to operate on the same schedule prior to remote learning: 

    • Monday- Thursday from 8:40am - 4pm and Fridays from 8:40am-1pm 

  • We will continue to hold the same arrival and departure procedures linked on the map included (see email) 

Please continue to check out our weekly Newsletters on our website for any additional announcements and important information. 

As always, thank you for your continued partnership in creating the safest environment for our students’ return. I appreciate your cooperation, feedback and questions regarding what is in the best interests of our students and staff. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time, and I will be happy to work with you. We are CREW! 

With warmest regards,

Trena Hand 

Interim Principal, Renaissance Elementary Magnet School
