Principal's Message

Hello Bulldogs Families,


I want to thank all of our families for the wonderful support they have provided this school year. We continue to deal with the effects of Covid, and your involvement/awareness of your child’s health plays an important role in our school’s efforts to deal with this pandemic. Please review info about this important topic so you understand the district procedures that are in place. While face coverings are not mandatory, they are highly recommended to help stop the spread of Covid.


There are many important topics included in this newsletter. First, I am in need of parent members for the RBSMS School Advisory Council. I have included the dates/times of the meeting. Please email my secretary, April Luneack aluneack@pasco.k12.fl.us you would like to volunteer. We need you!


Finally, I would like to let you know that our students have a great opportunity for participating in the Sarah Vanderberg After School Tennis program at RBSMS. Join us starting Tuesday, September 21st for an 8-week tennis and education after-school program exclusively for Stewart Middle School students! The program will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:30 p.m. at our school’s tennis courts. The last day of the program is November 11. Please complete the registration form (Click here) included in this issue of the Bulldog Bark and email it to Aluneack@pasco.k12.fl.us or have your child return the form to the back office if you would like to participate.


Looking forward to a great year,

Shae Davis, RBSMS Principal

If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on a school campus or school district office. All three self-screeners – the Student Self-Screener, the Employee Self-Screener, and the Visitor Self-Screener – are accessible from the district’s COVID-19 protocols page and are posted on each school web page.
