Rothenberg Closure, Food Pick-up & Remote Learning Schedule - February 6-10, 2023

Good afternoon Rothenberg Families, 

This is an important update about our school building and educational plan for the remainder of the week. The mechanical issues at our school building is a result of a malfunction of a water valve that significantly flooded the school. At this time, the extent of the damage is unknown, especially to our electrical and HVAC systems. All water must be pumped out of the building, building engineers then test all systems and city officials must inspect the building to allow it to safely reopen. 

Rothenberg Preparatory Academy will operate on the below schedule to ensure students are fed and engaged in learning. 

  • Tomorrow, Tuesday February 7:  No classes but families can pick up a 10-day food pack between 1 and 3 p.m. at the school. There will be no entry to the school, but our dining services team will be distributing the food packs at our main entrance.
