Tech Safety Tip

Here at SR we always want our students to be safe- both inside and outside of school. As you know, technology can be challenging to ensure our children's' safety. Just a reminder that your child's RUSD G-mail platform and student electronic mail system are primarily meant for the purpose of completing school assignments, communicating with teachers and school staff, to access outside resources related to school assignments and homework, and for students to communicate with peers to collaborate on school activities.

Please refer to the Student Use Agreement should you have any questions.
