Hello Bulldog Families,
As the end of the year approaches, I want to take the opportunity to thank you for being our partner in your child’s education. It has been an unusual year with the ups and downs of the COVID pandemic, and your support has been crucial in supporting us to make RBSMS a great school where our students will succeed!
Please be aware that starting in May students will participate in the FSA Reading and Math assessments along with FSSA Science and other end of course exams. It is crucial that students are present at school and take the assessments serious. As you may have read, this is the state’s final year of for the FSA Reading and Math; however, the scores will be used to place students next year and they will count towards our school letter grade.
We want to ensure that all students finish strong. Please make sure that you are monitoring your child's grades and attendance in myStudent. If you have any questions for teachers about your child's grades please email, or call them.
I am excited to welcome the following new members of the Bulldog family: 8th grade counselor Ms. Lourdes Vales, 6th grade Social Studies teacher Ms. Samantha Ballmann, 7th grade ELA teacher Ms. Kimberly Frank, and Parent Involvement Coordinator Ms. Judy McNaught.

Notification of Inspection for Asbestos Containing Materials in Public Schools
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final rule, 40 CFR Part 763, Asbestos Containing Material in schools, commonly referred to as AHERA. This rule requires all Local Education Agencies (LEA’s) to identify asbestos containing materials (ACM) in their school buildings and to take appropriate actions to control the release of asbestos fibers.
All inspections for Raymond B. Stewart Middle School have been completed and a Management Plan describing the results of the inspection and the action plan to control any asbestos found during the inspection, where applicable, has been submitted to the governor for approval. A copy of this plan is located in the administrative office of this school and at the Pasco County Schools Maintenance & Facility Services Department and is available for review upon request.
