RMS Updates 

RMS plans to reopen its doors to all students on August 31st for the first day of school. Our full operations plan is included below. The plan centers around keeping our classrooms at 50% occupancy to establish physical distancing and we will maintain small and consistent cohorts of students and staff to limit contact and exposure. Masks will 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.
