    Random Student Drug Testing to be Implemented 

    Board policy JFCI was approved by the Republic School District Board of Education on June 15. This policy implements random student drug testing starting for the 2017-18 school year. As previously communicated, this will impact students in grades 7-12 who participate in the covered activities, athletics and privileges listed in the policy FOUND HERE. As a reminder, the purpose of this policy is not to levy discipline, but rather to help prevent substance abuse among students, to encourage treatment for students with substance abuse problems, and to ensure that students have the opportunity to attend school and participate in activities in a fair, safe and healthy environment. To read more about the process in which the district followed to implementing this policy CLICK HERE. Information will be sent to applicable students in mid-July regarding the required consent form and process.  

    Per the policy, each student wishing to participate in covered activities and/or to receive district parking privileges will be required to complete and submit a consent form within the first 10 days of the school year and/or prior to the first day of practice (see the policy for specifics as a second enrollment period is available for RMS students). Information on the policy, including a copy of the consent form, was mailed to 7-12 grade families July 17. A copy of the consent form can also be found HERE.

    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.
