Veterans Day Recognition

RMS would like to recognize all the US veterans in our community (RMS Teachers, staff, grandparents, family members, friends, neighbors, etc.) for Veterans Day. Please complete this form for each veteran to be recognized. We are very grateful for the dedication and service in our Country. Thank you! Form must be completed by November 6th.

Breakfast & Lunch Menu Changes

Due to supply issues, there are times when breakfast and lunch menus will have to be changed after their publication. Our amazing cafeteria staff updates these changes in our Riverwatch MealViewer App. We apologize for the changes but are thankful to our cafeteria staff for providing nutritious options every day.

Picture Pickup for Virtual Families

Virtual families, if your student had their picture taken on picture day, you can pick up the photo package and/or picture proof TOMORROW, Thursday, November 5th. If you wish to purchase pictures after looking at the proof, the package includes directions to do so. There will be a retake/makeup day in the future for students who need it.

You will pull up in the usual parent pick up line near the front doors. Our staff will assist you as you remain in your vehicle. Please do not park in a parking space.

Pickup Time:

Thursday, 11/5 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

Picture Retakes

Any student who missed picture day or who purchased pictures and would like a retake can take pictures on January 13th. A schedule will be sent out closer to that date, and there will be an opportunity for virtual students to sign up for an appointment. If you wish to have your child's picture retaken, please save the picture package as they will need to turn it in on retake day.

Extra Halloween Candy?

RMS counseling office is collecting extra Halloween candy to make goodie bags for the teachers and staff. Donations are greatly appreciated and can be delivered to the counseling office.
