RCE Family Update
What a great start to the school year... best of my 20 years in education! This is a credit to our wonderful students, families, and faculty/staff.
Just a few announcements below, including a school dance this Friday and a change to our morning drop off.
Let me know if you need anything,
New Morning Car Drop Off Procedures
Starting on Monday, 8/15, we will be changing our AM carline to accommodate a larger number of car riders this year. We will be bringing the AM carline around to the front of the school and adding one more entrance. This should double the number of cars we can unload at one time. I have attached a map below with the new drop-off area and the four entrances labeled.
Please help us by pulling all the way around to the front. Your son or daughter will be able to walk through the building from any entrance to get to their classroom.
We hope this helps us start school at 8:30am and eases traffic a little on Madden Bridge Road. Our afternoon carline will remain the same.
Back to School Dance
Pickup will be in the normal carline. 6th grade students will be picked up from the front of the school with 7th & 8th graders being picked up from the back car loop.

The RC Edwards Athletic Booster Club supports all student athletic programs through purchasing equipment, uniforms, meals, maintenance, and many other things.
