At RMS, Site Council members are also responsible for keeping informed on legislative changes affecting education, allocating intervention funds, and advising the administration on important campus issues.
Thank you, teachers, parents, and staff, for attending our first meeting yesterday.

Partnering to Combat COVID-19 in Our Schools
Vista Unified will continue to follow the guidance from the SDCOE COVID-19 Decision Trees for K-12 Schools.
Individuals who test positive must isolate at home and may be released from isolation on day six, provided that symptoms are improving, they are fever-free for the past 24 hours without fever-reducing medication, and they have a negative test result from a rapid antigen test taken on or after day five.
If the individual is asymptomatic, day zero of isolation is the day the individual was tested. Day one is the first full day following the day the individual was tested.
If the individual is symptomatic, day zero of isolation is the day of symptom onset, regardless of when the individual tested positive. Day one is the first full day following the day that symptoms started.
Employees eligible for shortened isolation must continue to wear a highly protective mask at all times in the workplace around others, except when eating or drinking, for 10 days after the date of the positive test.
Students ending isolation early are strongly recommended to wear a highly protective mask when around others, except when eating or drinking, for 10 days after the date of the positive test.

PAWS of the Month: Integrity
Integrity is the quality of being honest and maintaining high moral standards. One easy way to define integrity is to think of it as “being good, even when nobody else is watching.”
