In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, school for children in River Falls was very different. Health and safety guidelines had students working from home more, and heavily dependent upon materials and assignments delivered over the internet. In some areas of the school district, internet is limited or not available, but cellular “hot spots” could provide internet access in those locations.
Funds from the RFCF Forever Fund, added to other district and grant resources, helped students and their families better navigate their at-home learning experience during the pandemic. Hot spots allowed for students to optimize their distance learning opportunities by allowing them to connect with classroom teachers, review online curricular materials, submit homework and maintain school to home connectivity with their teachers.
The River Falls School District is grateful for the contributions provided by the River Falls Community Foundation. Your donations made a positive impact on student learning!
