  • Student Email Format Change

    On August 1 the format of student email addresses in grades 7-12 will change to match student network usernames.

     

    The new format will be: (networkusername)@republicschools.org

    In most cases this will be (last two digits of graduation year)(last name)(first name initial)@republicschools.org, but there are exceptions depending on legal names provided to the district. 

    For example, student John Smith will graduate in the year 2020 so his email address will be 20SmithJ@republicschools.org.

     

    This change will take place on August 1 so for students to login to their school email accounts they simply type in this new format and THEIR CURRENT PASSWORD. Student passwords will not change through this process.

    Cross Country Camp is just around the corner.  We will be hosting camp at JR Martin Park from 6-8 on August 1, 2, and 4th. Please note, we will not be having camp on August 3rd. Camp will consist of learning techniques, pacing, nutrition, teambuilding, games, and running.

    RMS Is a Latex Aware Campus! 

    Parents:

    Please note that products containing latex are not allowed at RMS when school resumes session in August. Students in our school have latex allergies, some severe.  Because allergies can be so severe and life-threatening, we are asking for support of all Middle School staff and families in checking their child's belongings for latex before sending them to school.  We thank you in advance for your precaution and respect in helping us to keep our school safe for all. Most common products would include balloons, rubber toys, adhesive tape, bandages and rubber/latex bracelets.

     

    (1) Please be mindful as you are sending in items from home.  This includes supplies for classroom projects and special occasion decorations. We want to maintain a latex aware campus to keep our students safe.

     

    (2) Teachers and staff will watch for items that may contain latex and remove them from the premises. This includes balloons, balls, rubber cement, toys from home, rubber bands and duct tape. If we cannot, with 100% certainty, verify that items are latex free we will error on the side of caution and remove them or ask the nurse immediately. If your student is bringing a questionable item from home please contact the school nurse to determine if it can safely be at school.

     

    (3) Please know that the PE and playground equipment the students are currently using has been properly treated. Please help us educate your child as the mere presence of this equipment may make them think their football from home is also safe.

     

    (4) Again, thank you in advance for your caring and attention to this matter to keep our Middle School safe for all students. AVOIDANCE is the only way to keep our high risk students from having a medical emergency happen at school.
