EGMS Weekly Update
October 19th - 23rd
Join Chess Club!
This year our chess club will be fully online. Our sponsor, Chess For Success, has set us up with a new system. We'll be running October through Spring Break, as usual, with the possibility of some spring play after break, too. They are currently working on virtual tournaments, as well.
For this system, parents must sign up students online. That information is in the attached flyer. We'll have our first meeting on Monday, October 26, and will meet every Monday and Wednesday online at 2:45. We hope to see you then!
If you have any questions, please email your chess coach: email@example.com

2020/2021 Parent Volunteer(s) Needed!
We need your help. We are in need of a yearbook advisor this year. Someone who can get creative about what this very unique year's book should look like. If you're interested, please reach out to assistant principal, Megan Storey @ firstname.lastname@example.org
CDL Learning Continues
RSD Nutrition Services will provide curbside school meal pickup for all children 18 & under on planned school days 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. & 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. outside at these 10 school locations:
Redmond High School
Ridgeview High School
Tom McCall Elementary
John Tuck Elementary
Vern Patrick Elementary
Hugh Hartman Elementary
M.A. Lynch Elementary
Additionally, we will provide access to meals at two outlying locations
At the bus stop (behind the fire station on Quail & Shad Rds) on CRR 9AM-9:30AM
At Diamond Bar Ranch Park (NE) 10:30AM-11AM
These meals will be grab & go (non-congregate) and breakfast and lunch will be packaged together. They may be picked up by either children themselves or a parent/guardian on their behalf at NO CHARGE through December 31, 2020. No identification will be necessary.
Please be patient as we adjust our staff, production, and operations to best meet the needs of our community and also understand that we too are facing unprecedented supply chain issues and rising food costs. Given our resources, we’ve tried to make school meal pick-up as safe and convenient as we possibly can. Please also consider that your participation in our program extends your personal food budget, may be a comforting routine for students, is confidential and not just for low-income families, helps to utilize existing inventory (less food waste), and helps us to keep our local school meal program financially afloat.
As a last reminder, understand that under the National School Lunch Program, which will presumably resume if/when students return from Holiday break in January 2021, meals will return to being charged based on meal benefit eligibility status. Therefore, meal benefit applications are currently being processed for the 2020-21 school year and can be completed either on-line using a computer (not optimized for mobile devices) or via print/mail by visiting the RSD Nutrition Services webpage at http://redmond.k12.or.us/departments/nutrition/.
We look forward to getting our students back in our school cafeterias!
