RMS Updates 

RMS reopened its doors to all students on August 31, 2020 following a shutdown recommended by our Governor. Our full operations plan is included below. The plan centers around keeping our classrooms in a way that allows children and staff to establish physical distancing.  We will maintain consistent cohorts of students to limit contact and exposure. Masks will continued to be required for Children's House through Middle Years and will follow all MDH, DHS and CDC recommendations for safety, cleaning, and quarantining. We appreciate your support and look forward to our children and staff returning to campus this fall.
