SHADE PROJECT

RMMS is under construction! The Balfour Beatty team is hard at work getting all the work done for our new lunch area shade structures. Work continues on removing earth in preparation for the new concrete footings. They will be working on moving the utilities this weekend, which will require turning off the gas to the campus. We appreciate them working on the weekend to avoid doing this work with scholars on campus.

10 Instagram & Snapchat Safety Tips for Families

Explain the repercussions of oversharing on social media

Andy Wood, TocoMail


To keep your students safe on social media, Snapchat and Instagram included, teach them not to share information with strangers, not to share pictures with anyone outside of the immediate family, and to talk to you if they are harassed in any way. This is extremely important, especially considering the anonymity social media users have and how easy it can be for them to harm your children.


For example, Snapchat's pictures disappear in seconds, but they can be saved in screenshots, or with another device – which means that users who are tempted to share explicit content are in great danger. Talking to them about the potential repercussions is crucial!

Scholars can show their actual pass or a picture on their phone. If you have lost your pass, please ask your parent to call Transportation to get a new one.
