RMS Parent Newsletter and Updates 2/7/2021
Dear RMS Families,
Our district will reopen for in-person learning on Monday, February 8. Families that have been directly contacted about a quarantine involving their students should not return to school until their designated date.
Parents are reminded that students should be kept home if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 and contact the school and district nurse.
Our district administrative team, teachers, and nurses have reviewed practices and protocols for our return and an emphasis on complying with mask mandates, spacing, and other safety aspects of our school day can be expected.
Throughout these last few challenging months, we have been focused on providing the highest level of education and protecting the safety of our students, staff, and community. Everyone has been asked to do a lot to help us meet this shared goal. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.
We are excited to return back to a regular schedule for our remote and in-person students on Monday, February 8th.

School Day Schedule
Below is the school day schedule for the second semester. Please note that doors open for students 10 minutes before the student day begins. Elementary students should not arrive on campus before 8:00 am, as the doors will not be open to them and there will be no before-school care available. Remote students should be logged into their classes no later than 7:20.
New District's Strategic Plan
Mr. Enix presented the final draft of the district’s Strategic Plan, which was the result of input from the community, staff, parents, and students during a process that began in October. The 35-member Steering Committee developed draft statements and gathered input in a community survey with more than 200 responses.
A 40-member group of community and district members crafted the Action Plan. The Strategic Plan focuses on four areas: Student Learning, Communication, Culture, and Fiscal Responsibility. The Board is expected to vote on approval of the Strategic Plan at the next meeting Wednesday, February 17.
Thank you to the many people who participated in this process by serving on a committee or providing survey input.
