RMS Is a Latex Aware Campus!
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.

Over the last few years our community has experienced many changes in regards to where people are living within our school district. That said, this has created disparity regarding the number of students in each of our elementary buildings. To best meet the needs of our students and to help us achieve our mission of "preparing each student for a successful future", it is important that each of our elementary buildings have similar numbers of students being served in them. We've been monitoring these changes, and brainstorming ways to address this disparity over the last several months. In doing so, it has been determined that the best solution will be to update the elementary boundaries which will be implemented for the 2019-20 school year. Visit https://www.republicschools.org/boundaryupdate for additional information. Impacted families will be notified via mailed letter and email the week of February 25.
