Dear RMS Parents and Families,



It has been wonderful to see our Cohort 1 students this week. Although it’s a much smaller group than we are used to, it’s been so great to see students in the building.  We recognize that making a decision to stay virtual or return under Plan B is difficult and unique for each family based on your situation.  We respect those decisions and continue to be committed to helping ALL students succeed during these unique times.


1. Spring VA / Plan B Choices: All families will receive a message today regarding what your student is signed up for in the spring.  If you believe you receive the wrong message, please contact me so we can get that information updated.


2. Morning Carpool Temperature Checks: With colder temperatures arriving we know that a nice warm car is the best!  However, we realized yesterday morning that it is also causing temperatures to register high.  Please consider turning the heatdown or rolling the windows just a bit as you are arriving to school.  If a student registers 100.4 or higher we will need to wait a few minutes and conduct a re-screening.


3. Remote Learning Days Next Week: As a reminder, next Monday and Tuesday are RL days.  No students will report to school.  These are “Live Instruction” days, so it is important students follow their regular remote schedule and are attending live classes / completing work.


4. PTA: Our PTA has been hard at work behind the scenes and you will soon be able to sign up for the PTA and purchase/order spirit wear online.  During these challenging times we made an intentional decision to limit fundraising this year.  


However, One fundraiser that many people have taken advantage of and asked us to offer this year was the “Attraction Coupon Books”.  There is absolutely no expectation or pressure to sell books, but if you are interested in doing so we wanted to provide that opportunity.  This is also a great change to simply buy one for yourself.  Here is all the information you need to know:


We are kicking off our Annual Attractions Coupon Book Fundraiser today! We need your support to help pay for updated and improved school technology.


The 2021 Wake County Edition is valid Now and has over $5,900 in Savings for ONLY $20!

5. Fall Picture Update:


Plan B, Cohort 1 students will have their pictures taken this coming Thursday, November 19th.


VA students who have signed up for a spot tomorrow (Thursday, November 19th) can come at your designate time.  When students arrive they should come to the front entrance and wait on a yellow “6 foot sticker” until they have been screened.  They will then be taken to the room where pictures are being done.  Students will be directed to exit out the side front entrance doors.

Plan B, Cohort 2 students will have their pictures taken on Friday, December 4th.


VA Students – December Sign Up: We are offering another date to sign-up for pictures.  The date is Monday, December 14th from 3:30 – 5:30 pm.  You can sign up by going here.


Plan B, Cohort 3 Otters will have their pictures taken on Monday, December 14th during the school day.


Pictures must be paid for online and students will need to bring a printed or screenshot picture of the proof of payment to provide to the photographer.  Simply go to and click “order pictures”.  Use code FM354724.


6. Interims: We will not be sending an interim report home due to the unique nature of our current situation.  It is critical you are checking PowerSchool to see your child's grades.  If you do not have access to Powerschool, please contact us right away so we can assist you with getting that set up.  If you would like more information about your child's grade or current progress, please reach out to their teachers.
