Monday *Pick up your child's device, a hot spot if you are on that list, and instructions for logging into class. All Pre-K - 4th will be better served by using the tablet or computer provided by the school because they are pre-loaded with their apps and/or passwords. 5th - 8th should use their own computer if possible to free up availability for those who don't have their own. Pick up schedule....... 10 - 11, Last name A-H 11 - 12, Last name I - R 12 - 1, Last name S - Z 5 - 7 PM, Working parents or if earlier times don't work with your schedule * Students will be expected to log in for class each day and complete their assignments in order to receive credit and be counted in attendance. This is not sit and review mode. Your teachers are prepped and will be teaching/assigning regular class assignments each day. The day will be shorter because of things such as recess, lunch, class changes, etc. But their classes and assignments will be that of regular school. *Because some students will not get their device until late, tomorrow will be short, check-in activities to get both students and parents acclimated. *Monday is a regular day for students who have been virtual all along. Wednesday * Textbooks and supplies will be distributed. * Meals for Wed - Fri will be distributed to ALL students. * Distribution times, 11 AM - 2 PM or 5-7 PM. Come at whatever time is best for you.
RMS Reminder................ Today is a NO SCHOOL day. Do not worry about logging in for class. Distance learning will begin Monday. Additional information will come later. Stay safe and healthy.
NO pre-K through 2nd grade students have come into contact with the staff member that has tested positive. Students in these grades will NOT need to quarantine unless they have an older sibling in grades 3-8.
RMS Parents, This is an update concerning notice of a staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19. This staff member is in contact with all 3rd-8th grade students. Therefore, all 3rd-8th grade students will need to quarantine at home for 14 days ending September 24th. It is the recommendation of the health department that siblings to these students quarantine as well. As always the health and safety of our students and staff, and families are our number one priority. For this reason, as an added layer of precaution, we will be cancelling school tomorrow, September 11th. On Monday September 14th, our entire school will transition to distance learning for two weeks. Additional information will be given later concerning distributing technology devices and meals. If your child begins to exhibit symptoms of COVID-19, please contact you medical provider for testing. If your child does not exhibit symptoms, there is no need for testing, just quarantine. As always, our school appreciates our Rocky Mountain parents and community's support. We will continue to face these challenging situations together. If you need to reach me, you can contact my cell at 918-797-0318.
