Each week we focus on a vocabulary to support character development. Our intent is from students to build their working word bank by using these terms in their everyday vocabulary. You can help us by using them at home as well.
Help us help your child each school day by ensuring they are fully prepared for face-to-face instruction.
- Students must bring their devices fully charged each day.
- Students must bring their chargers each day.
- Students must bring the required materials (paper, pencil, journal, etc.) for their classes each day.
- Students must have on a clean mask (provided by parent).
- Students must wear a face shield (provided by the school).
These are the very basics that are required for your child to have a successful learning experience. When students aren't prepared it slows down learning for our virtual and face-to-face students. We are in a pandemic currently and do not have extra staff, space, nor materials for students who come unprepared. We are not sharing materials. Therefore it is each household's responsibility to ensure students arrive at school fully prepared each day. Parents please help us help your child by making sure they prepare all materials nightly; then check their backpacks, and bring them to school daily.
If you are experiencing technical issues with your child's computer, please email email@example.com providing details of what you are experiencing.
Support the Dallas Mavericks on gameday Mondays by wearing your RPM blue Mavs T-shirt.
In order to encourage a college-going culture and emphasis on higher education, students across the district are encouraged to wear college t-shirts on Wednesdays. We look forward to seeing our students on Wednesdays looking like future college students!
RPM Spirit Day
Every Friday we wear school spirit shirts representing Rosa Parks/Millbrook or LancsterISD. Make sure to post pics in your Spirit gear. For those who don't have school spirit shirts, we encourage you to wear our school colors Orange and Black. #WEBONation
We are on a roll RPM Family. We ended last week with 98% attendance on Thursday and Friday. Let's keep it up by meeting and exceeding our goal of 98% attendance every day!
The Lancaster Independent School District attendance policy will be followed for both online and face-to face instruction. Students are expected to attend class meetings online AND complete assigned tasks to demonstrate engagement in learning and mastery of concepts. Student attendance in MANDATORY as absences may result in denial of credit. Attendance is taken daily during each synchronous class meeting (Reading, Math, Science, Writing, Social Studies).
Keep in contact with teachers and provide our attendance office with proper notice of absence. Students unable to attend face-to-face due to quarantine are still expected to complete assignments and attend synchronous class meetings when possible.
