RMS Community..... Yesterday, Governor Stitt released new policy that would affect quarantine protocols for public schools. We have not seen any written guidance concerning this matter. RMS will not be implementing this policy. Rather, we will continue to follow quarantine protocols set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Adair County Health Department. We will continue our daily preventative measures with students and staff that we have had in place since July. The safety and well-being of our students, staff and community will remain a top priority. We appreciate our students, staff and parents support in following set guidelines in order to assure everyone’s safety.
RMS parents.... We received word this afternoon that a student has tested positive. Every parent of that class has been notified concerning whether or not their child needs to quarantine. If you did not receive a call from Mrs. Ketcher, your child is not in that class and has not been exposed.

RMS 5-8 grade basketball and cheerleading parents - I have received word that one of the referees at Tuesday night’s game has tested positive. His tracing team said he may or may not have been contagious. His contagious window is right in the bubble concerning quarantine. The unfortunate part is it is Friday evening and my contacts with the health department are not available. Out of extra caution for everyone’s health, 5-8 players and cheerleaders who were at the game Tuesday, should quarantine definitely through Monday. I will speak with authorities on Monday and let you know their decision ASAP. In the meantime, quarantine at home and monitor for any symptoms. If you have and questions or concerns about COVID and the symptoms, please let me know.
