2020-2021 RS Registration

Religious School 2020-2021 Registration
Kindergarten-10th Grade

Welcome to the registration page of our 2020-2021 online registration for The Bernice & Mannie Rabovsky Religious School at Congregation B'nai Tzedek.  There are exciting plans in the works for in-person learning, virtual learning, or a blending of the two, as we continue to create Jewish learning that is meaningful to our students and families, relevant to their lives and interests, and fun. As we know more about how the secular schools will be functioning next year, we will clarify our plans and let you know.

Please complete this registration as soon as possible to help us ensure we are able to have appropriate staffing and materials to educate all children at the start of the school year. Deadline to qualify for early bird registration discount has now been extended to June 30, 2020. Registering before you transition to your summer schedule is hugely important, so please click below to take advantage of the early bird savings and sign up today for what promises to be a great year!

Religious School meets on the following schedule:

Grades Schedule
Kindergarten through 2nd Grades Sunday mornings
3rd through 6th Grades Sunday mornings and Midweek Hebrew Small Group or Private Tutoring
7th Grade Sunday mornings (first half of the year) and Wednesday evenings
8th through 10th Grades Wednesday evenings 


The opening day of Religious School is Sunday, September 13, 2020. 

3rd through 6th Grades Midweek Hebrew
One important thing has changed for this year's registration process. We are not asking our parents of third through sixth graders to choose Small Group sessions at this time. Few if any of us know what schedules will look like. Please register now, indicating Small Groups, Private Tutoring, or unsure, and we will gather your preferences for timing as the summer unfolds and information becomes available.

For students in grades 3-6, even though you're not sure about your child(ren)'s schedule for the fall, please register so that we know your children are coming! In August, all families will receive information about sessions and have an opportunity to indicate the days and times that work for each child's schedule.

Registration Form 
To begin registration, please scroll down to the bottom of this note to the "click here to begin" button. 

Here are some tips for successfully registering:

  • The form WILL ONLY let you continue when you have completed ALL fields marked with a red *. You may type N/A in any field which does not apply to your application.
  • The form will ask for health Insurance info, Doctor's name and phone, emergency contact information and permission to pick up, their names and contact info. Please have this information ready. If this information changes at any time, please email Beth with the updated information so she can update our records.
     
  • We are providing you with a list of possible uses of your child's image.  If you don't want to let us use their image you must select which uses you wish us not to authorize.  You must Opt-Out or we will assume that you have consented. If you are fine with all the items, you do not check the boxes.
     
  • Private tutoring is a great option for students who learn best in a one-on-one environment or have scheduling conflicts that do not allow them to attend on Tuesday or Wednesday for Small Groups. If you select Private Tutoring, Ronni will call you to help structure the best learning experience for your child. 
     
  • Hebrew Small Group:  Since we do not yet know whether or not we will be in the building next year or if some students prefer a remote learning environment, we have not delineated exact midweek schedules. As we know more about the 2020-2021 schedule, we will release that information to parents. Feel free to call Ronni in the interim to discuss your thoughts.
     
  • You will receive a confirmation email once registration has been submitted. If you have not received one, the website might have timed out. If you are not sure that you have registered your child(ren), email Beth. Please keep in mind the RS Office is closed on Fridays.
