Important Information

March 16, 2020

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

This letter is to inform you that an extended learning plan has been developed and will be implemented immediately while school is not in session. Learning will occur virtually at the direction of your student’s teachers. Each subject area teacher will communicate expectations regarding the completion, submission and grading of the assignments on a weekly basis.

RMA students and their families should check their email and class websites periodically for any updated assignments and feedback. Please reach out to your student’s teachers with any questions related to assignments. Thank you for your cooperation and support as our school community moves forward with the responsibility of educating your children during these uncertain times. The health and security of your families is upon our minds and we wish you nothing but the best moving forward.

Refunds for Spring Sports Participation Fee Mailed March 23

Due to the cancellation of all athletic competition from March 13 through at least April 6, River Mill Academy will issue refund checks to the parents of our spring athletes for the $50 participation fee.

Refund checks were mailed on Monday, March 23. If are are expecting a refund and have not received it by March 27, please contact Debbie Carlson at dcarlson@rivermill-academy.org.  


Credit for School Lunches Pre-Ordered through March 31

All school lunch pre-orders for the period March 16-27 have already been credited back to the student's lunch account. Now that schools will be closed through May 15, the remainder of lunches ordered will be credited back to the student's lunch account. If you have any questions about your child's lunch account, please contact Angela Upchurch at aupchurch@rivermill-academy.org or Danielle Schoch at dschoch@rivermill-academy.org.


Before & After School Care Program

The Before & After School Care Program will not operate during the mandatory state-wide school closure. We bill a week in advance for the Before & After School Care Program, so the charges for week of March 16-20 have already been added to parent accounts. Child care accounts for the weeks that we will be out of school have been credited. If you have questions about your child's Before & After School Care account, please contact Angela Upchurch at aupchurch@rivermill-academy.org
