As mentioned on page 19, we currently follow prevention protocols
(including masking) for the safety of our staff and participants in all of
our in-person classes. Many photos in this catalog were taken prior to
COVID-19 or in an area where social distancing and other safety protocols
were followed.
Greetings from the Community Education
Youth Enrichment Program!
We wanted to reach out to say THANK YOU to all our participants past, present, and
future. This past year has been one of many trials and tribulations. We had to pivot
and then pivot some more. We moved from nearly all in-person learning to adding
several take-home and online opportunities. Through it all, our commitment to the
youth in our community has remained steadfast. Our goal of providing opportunities
for all youth to develop skills and knowledge to carry through life is stronger than
ever. We couldn’t do it without your continued support!
As we resume and increase our in-person learning opportunities this winter and
spring, we will continue to offer several online courses and some take-home
opportunities as well. With the return to more in-person learning, the safety and well-
being of our community is a top priority. Reduced class sizes, individualized supplies,
masking, and spaced seating are just some of what you will continue to see. Learn
more about the safety precautions we have in place on page 19.
Once again thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you
all soon!

Community Education is working alongside Rochester Public Schools
to bring forth a summer of learning and opportunity even better than
before. Due to ongoing changes, details are still in the works. We can’t
wait to share it with you soon–stay tuned!
Check out these two Summer 2021 courses
available for registration beginning March 1st!
GRASP SUMMER ACADEMIC
REVIEW
GRASP is an academic workbook correspondence
program designed for students to review and maintain
skills that were learned during the school year over the
summer months. Students complete nine lessons in
math, reading or both over the summer. Each lesson
takes about one hour to complete. Online or paper
work book options available!
MATH-BY-MAIL: STANDARDS BASED PRACTICE
With creative problem solving, multiple choice, short answer and vocabulary
embedded into an 8-week course of independent study, students will maintain
or increase the level of their math understanding in addition to reviewing the
recommended targets suggested by grade level in the Minnesota School
Academic Standards of mathematics. Students will then receive 8 packets to
complete at their own pace throughout the summer.
Make sure your contact information and student’s profile is up to date
in our registration system so you can be the first to know about our
summer plans!

COVID-19 Prevention Standards
RPS Community Education developed the following COVID-19 Prevention Standards under the guidance of the
Minnesota Departments of Health and Education and the Centers for Disease Control to minimize exposure to the
novel coronavirus. All prevention standards are subject to change as new guidance becomes available.
We remain committed to providing high quality opportunities for children to build new skills, to explore their future,
and to connect with one another and with positive adult role models
Class Design
Classes/camps enrollment will be limited as to ensure
adherence to requirements determined by Rochester
Public Schools, Olmsted County, and the State of
Minnesota.
Classes/camps will make all reasonable attempts to not
combine or mix with other individuals or groups.
All classes are assigned to one or more dened indoor
and/or outdoor learning spaces. Staff will restrict activities
to those places, and any assigned path between them.
Within the learning space(s), staff will remind participants
to maintain physical separation of at least six feet from
one another (12 feet for activities with signicant physical
exertion, such as an exercise class or sports camp).
Staff will limit any closer proximity with participants to no
more than brief interactions within six feet (less than 1 min).
Learning materials will be provided for individual use,
wherever possible; staff will separate any shared materials
and sanitize them between uses.
Staff will discourage all physical contact in class/camp,
including handshakes, high-ves, etc., and suggest
alternate, non-contact greetings and celebrations for
participants to use (snaps, claps, call/response, etc.).
Health & Hygiene
Participants and staff will wash hands frequently to reduce
transmission of germs, including, but not limited to, arrival
for class, before and after class/camp set-up, before and
after transitioning your group to another space, before and
after using any shared equipment.
If hand washing is not possible in a situation, staff and
participants will use hand sanitizer instead (RPS Community
Education will make hand sanitizer available, where
feasible).
RPS Community Education will encourage participants to
bring their own rellable water bottles, to avoid needing to
drink from shared water fountains.
RPS Community Education will follow mask requirements
determined by Rochester Public Schools, Olmsted
County, and the State of Minnesota. In the event those
requirements do not align, Community Education will
follow requirements currently in place within Rochester
Public Schools.
Drop-off & Pick-up
Parents/guardians and children must maintain social
distancing of at least six feet from non-family members,
including staff and other participants.
Parents/guardians must perform a health status
screening based on current Centers for Disease Control
(CDC) guidance, persons showing any symptoms should
NOT attend class.
Upon arrival children should wash their hands prior to
entering the learning space; parents/guardians should
not enter the group’s learning space.
Sanitizing
RPS Community Education requires frequent sanitizing of
high touch surfaces. In RPS buildings, maintenance staff
will perform this duty for xed building features (e.g.,
sinks, doorknobs, light switches, stair rails). Community
venue owners who host Community Education
programs, and transportation vendors who transport
Community Education participants agree to ensure this
happens.
RPS Community Education requires instructors/coaches
to sanitize any shared materials and equipment between
classes/camps with EPA-approved cleaners capable of
eliminating the novel coronavirus.
Exclusion
According to the CDC’s current guidance, people with
these symptoms may have an illness they can spread
to others: fever of 100.4 or greater, sore throat, cough,
shortness of breath or difculty breathing, new loss of
taste or smell, new onset of severe headache, nausea
or vomiting, and diarrhea. Additional symptoms may
be identied by the CDC. Adults/children with any
of the symptoms identied by the CDC, without an
alternate medical explanation provided, or who have
had exposure in the last 14 days to someone with these
symptoms, are not allowed to participate in Community
Education programs until they are no longer required to
self-isolate or quarantine based on CDC guidelines.
If a participant exhibits signs of illness during a program,
we will separate them from the group and call parents/
guardians to pick them up.
