Dear RMS Parents and Families,
I hope everyone has had a great week! We continue to work hard behind the scenes to prepare for the 2020 – 2021 school year. We hope to make it a year to remember…for all the right reasons 😊. This email includes many important items so please read carefully.
Despite COVID-19, this continues to be a requirement. The state has indicated they do not plan to make a change to this requirement. We have approximately 130 7th grade students we need shot records for. If you have these, but have not submitted them please do that as soon as possible. You should scan or take a picture of the shot record and email it to our Data Manager, Jenny Walker, at firstname.lastname@example.org If you still need to get these shots please do so ASAP and then send Mrs. Walker a copy of the shot record.
When the change from Multi-Track Year-Round to Single Track 4 was made, along with the addition of the Virtual Academy (VA) option, we were forced to realign our team structures. Typically, we would direct you to Powerschools to see your child’s schedule and teachers. We anticipate that will be available around August 26th.
I will send a message once Powerschools is available. Once that happens you can expect teachers to work with students and parents to navigate and understand the system.
We know you will need to know your child’s teachers and schedules prior to the first day of school (August 17th). We will be providing a paper schedule, along with many other important pieces of information to have a successful start to the school year. Please see below for more information about what you can expect to receive and how we will get that information to you.
Some of the information (not all-inclusive) you can expect to receive include:
For families who do not currently get my weekly emails they will also not get an acceptance email. They have still been accepted, but may need to contact the school to confirm. I share this so that as you are talking to friends you can let them know this information.
Additionally, please let them know that if they would like to begin receiving my weekly emails they should email Jenny Walker, our Data Manager at email@example.com to update their contact information.
I would like to close by saying thank you so much to many of you who have sent words of encouragement and shown your support within the community. This has been no small task to prepare for a year during so many unknowns, but we are doing it. I am so impressed with our staff who have put in countless hours to be ready for August 17th. As we continue to move forward, we will need your patience, flexibility, and grace more than ever! We are committed to making 2020 – 2021 a great year!
