Rush County Schools will be using eLearning Days in the 2023-2024 School Year. eLearning Days will be used once the 2 built-in make-up days are used (January 15th, and February 19th). Once these days have been used, RCS will alternate between using an eLearning Day and making up the day. The days that will be make-up days will be added to the end of the school year.
Whenever possible, students should complete the assigned work on eLearning Day. If it is not possible for the student to complete the work on that day, the student will have two school days after returning to school to complete the work. Opportunities that will be provided for students to complete work that students are unable to complete on the eLearning Day include - before school hours, indoor recess times, during the subsequent school days.
Students and parents may communicate with the student’s teacher(s) on the eLearning Day during regular school hours. Communication should be done using logant@rush
Assignments will be posted by 9:00 AM on an eLearning Day. Assignments will be posted using Google Classroom. Assignments will be completed using the program(s) below.

Please make sure to access these websites from home in advance of any eLearning Day and contact your student’s teacher if you have any difficulties accessing these websites.
We understand that adjustments may need to be made and our goal is to provide the best experience possible for students and parents.
