Kindergarten Registration

Enroll your child now for 5-year-old kindergarten for the 2021–2022 school year. Families may enroll their students online this year for convenience and the safety of our students, their families and our staff.

You can learn more about the kindergarten online enrollment process here.

RCES Book Drive

RCES is having a Book Drive this week (May 3-May 7) to collect books for classroom libraries, grades pre-k through 5th. If you have any children’s books you would be willing to donate that your children no longer read, there will be a box in the lobby for you to drop them off! Whether you choose to donate or not, have a conversation with your child about how there are needs in our community and we can help solve those needs by doing acts of service and donating goods!

RCES Legacy Walk

We invite all graduating high school seniors that attended RCE to join us for our annual Legacy Walk on Friday, May 28. See details below, and please share with any graduating seniors you know!

Please make sure your child has a mask

Please make sure you are sending your child(ren) to school with a mask. We have run out of our supply from the district at the beginning of the year and are continuing to spend money on disposable masks. It would be very helpful to us if you could ensure your child has a mask each day. It is a good idea to keep extras in the book bag for those days they might forget one! Thank you for your help with this!

Tardy Bell rings at 7:40

The tardy bell now rings at 7:40 am (rather than 7:50) and dismissal will begin at 2:10 pm (rather than 2:00 pm). Doors are locked at 7:40, and you must walk your child into school if tardy.

Transportation Changes & Early Dismissals

Please make sure you communicate ALL transportation changes through a phone call to the front office at 821-4200 before 1:30 pm. Early dismissals will not be made after 1:30 pm. Do not communicate transportation changes via an email or note to the teacher.

Morning and Afternoon Car Line


  • You may use both lanes in the morning, just like we do in the afternoon. Begin the "zipper method" merging at the same point in line that the afternoon zipper merge starts.

  • You may drop off in the front car line OR the bus loop.

  • Always exit from cars along the sidewalk curb. At no time are children to exit from the left side of the vehicle.

  • Please have students ready when they reach the unloading zone. Use your time in the line to find a mask and get it on, gather book bag and lunch box, put on jackets, etc. The quicker our students exit vehicles, the quicker the line will move.

  • At no time should children be dropped off in the parking lot or sent across the crosswalk alone. An adult is required to walk the student ALL THE WAY ACROSS the crosswalk for your students' safety.

  • Parents and drivers should not leave their vehicle to assist with unloading or unbuckling students.

  • In the afternoon, parents and drivers should not leave their vehicle to assist with buckling students. If you need to assist your child with buckling, please move up to the gold cone. If you need to exit the vehicle for this, please pull into a parking space for your safety.

  • Please have car tags displayed in afternoon car line until your child is loaded.

Technology Troubleshooting Guide

We have created a RCES Family Troubleshooting Guide for our families. Please refer to this document when technology issues arise. If you still have trouble, please contact us at rcestechnicalhelp@lexington1.net.
