Message from our principals

Dear RES Families,

It is amazing how quickly this summer has passed. We hope your vacation time with family and friends has been enjoyable. Our staff has been busy preparing their classrooms for students to return to school tomorrow! We cannot wait to greet their smiling faces as we welcome them back to RES.

Today we will hold our virtual Meet & Greet sessions for parents and teachers on the following schedule:

Grade 1 8:15 a.m. - 8:45 a.m.

Grade 2 8:45 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.

Grade 3 9:15 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.

Grade 4 9:45 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.

You should have received your Zoom links from your child’s teacher yesterday.

We will also hold our Kindergarten Orientation and Bus ride today. Families with last names beginning with the letters A - J will visit between 1:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Families with last names beginning with K - Z will visit between 2:15 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. at the main office entrance.

Just a reminder to have your child bring an extra mask and water bottles to school with them. We will have extra masks for children, as well.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Important Reminders

RES Visitors

Due to the current health and safety precautions in place, we are limiting visitors in our building to essential business only. If you need to come to the school to pick up your child, please be sure you have a government issued ID on you for entry each and every time. Even if we recognize you, we will ask for your ID. This is our policy.

Traffic Safety

Please be reminded to follow all traffic rules while driving in our parking lots and around RES, including stopping at stop signs and adhering to the speed limit. Cars may not travel into the bus loop during arrival and dismissal.

School Dismissal Manager

If there are changes to your child's dismissal plans, remember to log in to School Dismissal Manager to update with the new plans. A reminder that 'bus' is the default for all students. Distribution of a student pick up number tag, or the data from the summer survey does not automatically inform us that your child is a pick up.
