    RMS Traffic Flow Procedures

    RMS Traffic Flow Map

     As we know, the beginning of the school year can be a bit overwhelming in regards to the amount of information that you receive. That said, for this reason we wanted to reshare our building’s traffic flow procedures with you so that we can work together to ensure our students arrive and leave RMS safely. The information that was shared out via email on Tuesdayevening was simply a reminder about current procedures, and to remind families that using the grassy area between RMS and McDonald’s as a drop off and pick-up location is not permitted. This area is private property not owned by the school district, and having students cross the traffic flow line in order to get to or from this area is simply not safe.

    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.

  • Flu Symptoms

    flu symptoms This flu season has been particularly rough. As a reminder, the flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. It can be spread from person-to-person through the air by coughing or sneezing or by touching an infected surface and carrying it to your nose or mouth. Check out the graphic below for symptoms.

     

    If your child develops flu-like symptoms, keep them home from school until at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever without the use of medicine. We recommend consulting with a doctor and making sure your child gets plenty of rest and fluids.
