    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 shot The Republic School District, in cooperation with Jordan Valley Community Health Center, is offering
    free seasonal flu vaccine to Republic students as supply allows.
     
    The following conditions would prevent your child from receiving flu vaccine: allergy to vaccine components and moderate or severe illnesses.
     
    If you are interested in your child receiving the inactivated influenza vaccine (Flu Shot), please complete and sign a consent form and return to your school nurse by October 15th. CLICK HERE FOR THE FORM.
     
    Take note: The consent form asks for the student's commercial insurance information so that it can be billed. If insurance does not cover immunizations the vaccine will be paid for by the VFC program. Either way, the vaccination is FREE to all families.

  • School Picture Retakes Update

    This message is in regards to the delay in receiving school pictures. The district has been in contact with Lifetouch, the vendor who takes and develops school pictures, and they are very apologetic about this situation. They have informed the district that they have recently implemented new software and it is causing an unexpected delay in getting pictures returned to families. That said, they are ensuring that families will receive the original pictures prior to currently scheduled retake days EXCEPT FOR SWEENY ELEMENTARY. For Sweeny only, picture retake day will be rescheduled for a future date to be determined and will NOT take place on October 2. As soon as a new date is determined for Sweeny we will share out. Thank you for your patience!

  • New Visitor Management System

    As we kick off the new school year, we are also kicking off a new visitor management system that will help us electronically record and check the sex offender registry for anyone who visits and accesses our school buildings.  If you plan to visit our schools for class parties, as a guest speaker, volunteer (additional background check form still needed https://www.republicschools.org/Page/1189), to have lunch with a student, contractor, etc. you'll need to bring with you a state issued picture ID as a way to check in with our front offices.  We are excited about implementing this system as it helps us continue our focus of creating a safe and secure learning environment for our students and employees.

We have been notified by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) that Individual Student Reports (ISR) are available.  For students currently in grades 6-12, ISRs will be distributed on September 9 for those who participated in state assessments last spring.  For students currently in grades 4 & 5, ISRs will be distributed to families during Parent Teacher Conferences the week of October 28 (more information to come).  
     
    Information for how to interpret your child's results will be included with the ISR.  If you have any questions or would like to see your child's report prior to the distribution times, please contact your child's school counselor or Jennifer Renegar, District Test Coordinator (732-3605, ext 6014).
