Reminder: Parents if you are sending in money for anything- please label it with your child's name and what it is for (book order, t-shirt money, lunch account) so that we know where it is intended to go.

Morning drop-off: 
Parents please do not allow your kids to leave the car until 7:30. IF you have a HS or MS student at RMA they may get out at 7:20 with them. The older sibling is responsible for walking the elementary student to the gym. RMA does offer morning care before 7:30am for a fee.  If your child is dropped off early on more than one occasion, they will have to attend morning care and parents will be responsible for paying the fee.

P.E. Days are Tuesday and Thursday: Please make sure your child is wearing tennis shoes on those days.

We will have snack everyday, please send one for your child.  Due to allergies we will not provide a class snack for everyone.

campus if you want.

Absences: If your child is absent, please send in a signed written/typed note (emails are not sufficient) when your child returns to school.
