Dismissal Changes for Students

It is important that parents call before 3 PM to request changes for dismissal. This allows sufficient time the office staff to communicate changes to the teachers and students. Last minute calls are very stressful during dismissal. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Parent and Doctor Notes

When a student is absent from school, it is required that parents provide a note stating the reason for the absence. If the student has been to the doctor's or dentist's office, please provide the doctor's/dentist note. Without a parent's note or doctor's note, the student's absence is considered unlawful. Notes must be provided within 10 days of the absence.

TITLE I Information

RES Vision:

RES is a progressive community of learners collaboratively supporting each other through intentional planning in a risk-taking and trusting environment, leading to rigor, student autonomy, and mastery of content standards in all learning settings.

Parents Right to Know


The Federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) contains several provisions that promote a parent/school partnership through communication. One such provision gives parents the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers. A parent may request the following information:


  • Any college or university degree, major or certification held by the teacher
  • Whether the teacher is certified by the State of Maryland to teach a particular grade level or subject area
  • Whether the teacher holds a conditional teaching certificate
  • The qualifications of the paraprofessionals serving the student


If you would like to request the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers or paraprofessionals, please submit a written request to the principal. The principal will provide the information to you within 30 business days of the date of your request.


Parents may also request information on the level of achievement and academic growth of their child, if applicable and available, on each of the State academic assessments.


Parents will receive timely notice if the student has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.


Parents May Request Teacher Information


The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 provides parents of students attending Title 1 schools the opportunity to request information about the professional qualifications of their child's teachers. Parents of elementary students may request in writing to the school principal information about their child's teacher including college/university degrees of certification held, subject area of the teacher's degree or certification, and Maryland certification status. Additionally, if your child is served by paraprofessionals, parents may request their professional qualifications.


Parent Information Resource Center


Parents are encouraged to visit our Parent Information Resource Center (PIRC) located in the lobby outside of the front office. The PIRC has a variety of parenting resources and informational brochures and flyers. These materials are all free. Parents can find the School Improvement Plan, RES School Family Engagement Compact, booklets from The Parent Institute on topics such as “Seven Habits of Highly Responsible Students; Help Your Child Balance School and Extracurricular Activities; and Helping Children Learn to Resolve Conflicts.” Parents can also find information regarding Caroline County Recreation and Parks, Caroline County Library, Imagination Library and Maryland Department of Health . Please be sure to check out our Parent Information Resource Center next time you come to the school.
