Your Input Matters!
Questions? Just ask!
A: Once notified of a positive case, we use our seating records to determine any student who may have been within six feet of the positive case for fifteen minutes or more. Our administrative team inputs that information which then prompts a messenger that is sent to the parent portal email of the parent or guardian of the students identified as direct contacts.
Q: What did RMS do to encourage staff and students to wear a mask?
A: Weekly we communicate the guidelines outlined in Keep Forsyth Safe in our announcements. Masks are available upon request. It is important that parents keep children at home if they are exhibiting any Covid symptoms.
Q: When will agendas be in?
A: Agendas are in and should have been delivered to your student.
Q: Will the county continue to provide lunch and breakfast free this quarter?
A: Lunch and breakfast is being provided through the United States Department of Agriculture. This is not a county level program. It will continue as long as it is approved by the USDA.
Q: Is there a tennis training session available?
A: No, RMS does not offer tennis and has no facilities for tennis.
