COVID-19 Corornavirus Information

Please be assured that the RMS Board and Administration understand and share your concern for the well being of our students, our employees and our school families during this high-stress time. We are doing everything possible to navigate this rapidly evolving situation.  We encourage you to visit the public resources linked below for the most detailed and up-to-date information on COVID-19.  

RMS Updates 

Beginning Monday, March 16th RMS will be closed.  At this time, our intent is to reopen on Monday, April 6th.  This initial closure is a 9-day disruption to student schedules due to non-student report days which were previously scheduled March 27th through April 3rd (teacher work day and spring break).  SchoolCues will be used for community-wide notices and guides may use a combination of SchoolCues and email to stay connected with families and children. Distance learning for elementary and up begins March 16th.
