Ramsey Weekly Update
Message from the Principal
Attention ALL RMS Families:
Click the Buttons Below to Complete the Required Back to School Forms for 20-21
Parents and guardians will:
- Complete all, annually-required school and district forms including the Technology Use Agreement (for student iPad use), field trip and media permission forms.
- Add or change primary and/or alternative addresses to ensure accurate school-bus transportation to and from home and/or childcare addresses. Please complete iUpdate by the deadline of September 6, 2020. Click the button below to complete the iUpdate.
Every SPPS family should complete an application for Education Benefits/Free or Reduced Price Meals. Not only does this help us identify families in need of assistance, it also allows the District to receive federal dollars for classroom programming.
A new form must be completed each school year. Additionally, families who have completed an application and have experienced a change in household income or size are encouraged to complete a new application. Click the button below to complete the application.
Buses are delivering meal boxes to homes, with curbside pickup at select schools. Only families who do not receive meal deliveries should pick up meals.
If you have not already registered for home meal delivery, please click on the button below.
The IB-MYP (International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme) is the backbone of our curriculum and instructional practices at Ramsey, but it also helps our scholars develop into caring, knowledgeable global citizens who are ready to take on anything. I have been impressed by the way that students (as well as staff) have been demonstrating the IB Learner Profile traits already this year, especially being risk-takers as we embark on Distance Learning 2.0. It is important that students continue to work on being good communicators with their teachers (using email, office hours, and synchronous learning time) to get the support they need. I look forward to sharing more about the IB-MYP at Ramsey in the coming weeks. Feel free to check out our website or send me an email for more information.
