K-8 Personal Items Pick Up at Clifford

K-5 Pick Up



  • Kindergarten - 2nd Grade: Pickup Tuesday 5/26 between 10:00-3:00
  • 3rd-5th Grade- Pickup Wednesday 5/27 between 10:00-3:00


There will be staff in the drive through circle to help you find your items while you wait in your car. At this time, we will also be collecting classroom books that you may have borrowed from your teachers. If you could bring those in a bag labeled with the teacher’s name, that will help us get them back to their correct classroom. If you have children in multiple grades at Clifford, we may ask you to return during that pickup window since we will have minimal staff on site to coordinate collecting all these materials. We appreciate your flexibility and your understanding. Mrs. Parrish will be on site coordinating this effort, so if you have questions you can email at tparrish@rcsdk8.net.


Middle School Item Pick Up



  • 6th Grade-Pickup- Thursday 5/28 10:00-1:00
  • 7th Grade-Pickup- Thursday 5/28 1:00-3:00
  • 8th Grade Students- Pickup Friday 5/29 10:00-3:00


We would like families to get these items in a way that is without any contact as possible. You will need to come to the upper parking lot and pull up to the gate by the blacktop area near the upper field. We will have a staff person retrieve items from your students locker while you wait in the car, so the process will take a few minutes. If you have children in multiple grades at Clifford, we may ask you to return during that pickup window since we will have minimal staff on site to coordinate collecting all these materials. We appreciate your flexibility and your understanding. Mrs. Parrish will be on site coordinating this effort, so if you have questions you can email at tparrish@rcsdk8.net.

Provide Input on School Attendance Boundary Change at the RCSD Board Meeting on 5/20/20



RCSD seeks the input of the community as the school district studies its attendance zone to shift the current attendance boundary areas of neighborhood schools. The district’s school boundary change study comes after the moves and mergers of programs and consolidation of schools. A demographer’s presentation to the Board of Trustees will take place on May 20 during the RCSD Board Meeting. Click here to learn more about how you can provide your input. The final Board approval will take effect for the 2021-22 school year registration.
