The students have not been on campus and the staff member has not had contact with any students in the last 48 hours so no quarantines are required for in-person students and staff.

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.

RMS Parents.... Rocky Mtn. will be open for in-person learning next week, Nov. 16-20. The county numbers continue to climb. Other schools have been hit and have a lot of staff and students out. Right now, we have sent one class home due to the 2 positive students reported earlier in the week. We did this in order to reduce the risk of exposure and spread to others. Other than that, come Monday we will have 7 students and 1 staff member in quarantine due to outside exposure. We will continually monitor our #'s and will make decisions for in-person and distance learning as needed. Remember, we went to distance learning when our numbers were high, while other schools stayed in session. We will keep you informed if our status changes so that you can better prepare for your family. If you decide distance learning is the best choice for your family next week, we will support you in that decision. Because the #'s are so fluid, I need you to let us know this weekend if you find out your child needs to quarantine, happens to test positive, or you are choosing distance learning. Please call or text me at 918-797-0318. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always reach me at school or on my cell. As parents, you are doing a marvelous job of keeping us informed so that we can ensure the safety of others. Thank you for being such a valuable partner in our school! I hope each of you have a happy and safe weekend!
RMS Parents.... We had an additional middle school student test positive today. Both students were exposed outside of school, but they are in the same grade. In order to limit exposure and spread to any other students within our school I quarantined that entire class this afternoon. Remember if your child is experiencing a headache, low grade fever, cough, sore throat, or upset stomach please do not send them to school. We will continue to work together in order to keep everyone safe and our school open.
RMS Parents..... This notice is to let you know that we have received word that we have 1 individual at the middle school who has tested positive. This individual has not been at school for several days. However, we are working with health officials and if any child is identified as needing to quarantine, we will notify those parents. At this time, this is the only positive case in our school. As always, we will remain diligent with our protocols and continue to monitor our numbers within the school. Please continue to do your part in stopping the spread and reducing the number of positive cases in our county.
