RMS Moves to 5 days a week of in-class instruction

Good Evening Ranchos Middle School Families, We are excited to announce that RMS will take another step forward with our reopening plan with in-class instruction occurring everyday for all students who have elected to return to school. Monday, April 5th students will work asynchronously, while teachers prepare for 5 day a week in-class instruction. All students will return to campus on Tuesday, April 6th for in-class instruction. Ranchos Middle School was fortunate enough to start this week with all students returning on Thursday or Friday so most of the COVID-19 protocols and classroom routines have been established for students and families. Here are the exciting changes to the RMS Reopening Plan. In-class instruction for all students will be Monday through Friday with school starting at 7:55am and ending at 12:25pm. Gates will open everyday at 7:40am to accommodate families who need to drop off at Sierra View or Webster. Social distancing standards will be 3ft apart for students in the classroom which allows RMS to combine cohorts. Cohort will now be approximately 30 to 1 with the new in-class social distancing standard with room to grow if more families chose to come back. Schedules established this week will remain the same for the rest of the year. Students who have elected to continue with full time distance learning will receive a new schedule on Monday, April 5th. Staff will not be taking student temperatures upon arrival. It is imperative to complete the health screen prior to 7:00am. Reminders from the first week of in-class instruction: Please fill out the Parent Square Health Screener before arriving everyday. Staff will check health screening completion by 7:00am. The health screener is the most important task that parents can do to ensure RMS stays open during the COVID-19 pandemic. (Please find the Daily Health Screener on your Parent Square app) Students who do not have their screener complete will not be allowed entry on campus until the screener is completed. We appreciate your attention to this matter before dropping your student off at school. Chromebooks need to be brought to school everyday and fully charged to ensure that your child is prepared for class. We would like to thank all of our parents and students for making our first days back on campus a great success. Every day all health screeners were completed before arrival and students did an amazing job following social distancing protocol. Finally thank you to the RMS staff for meeting the needs of reopening our school and creating a positive environment for our students. Have a great Spring Break and As Always Go Mustangs!
