Publicaremos la traducción al español en "El Informativo" a principios de la semana que viene.
Hello, Ram Fam,
Thanks to those who supported Reindeer Days!
Thanks, also, to all who have served in our armed forces as we remember you and those who have served all of us on Veterans Day. As one whose family has served, I am deeply appreciative of the commitment and sacrifices you have made on behalf of your fellow countrymen. Bless you.
Remember that the building will be closed on Thursday and Friday of this week in recognition of our veterans and in recognition of everyone’s need to take a breath.
School Psychologist Appreciation Week: Some of you have worked with our wonderful School Psychologist, Kelly Compliment. Mrs. Compliment is truly a gem. This week has been School Psychologist Appreciation Week. If you have had the pleasure of working with her, it surely would be nice to send her an email to thank her for the excellent work she does. For one, I must say that it is an honor to work with such a knowledgeable and devoted advocate for students!
Parent Information Night (9th-11th Grades): RHS Student Services will host virtual presentations on Nov. 16th from 6-7:30PM using the format that we had last year. We will send more information as the event approaches.
Driver Education: I just wanted to let you know that we have heard that there are longer delays than anticipated by Jordan Driving School. Due to the limited number of driving instructors and the backlog due to the pandemic, the current backlog for the driving portion of DE is 7-8 months. As you know, the classroom portion of DE has been suspended while they provide the driving portion instruction to catch up. It is my understanding that Jordan Driving School is communicating directly with parents about the delays, but I felt that the general school population should also be aware.
Mask Requirements for Indoor Sports re. Spectators: As we transition to winter sports, remember that face coverings are still required indoors on school campuses. The distance between students and adults should be a minimum of 6 feet to the greatest extent possible.
Parents Invited to free virtual summit for tips on student engagement, behavior support and self-care In these free virtual sessions, parents can learn from experts who will offer strategies, solutions, and encouragement to help students and families thrive during these unusual times. This unique event is a collaboration with the National Center for Youth Issues. The first sessions will be offered on Nov. 18. Full schedule and registration links.
