Madera County remained in the purple tier this week so unfortunately RMS is still at least 4 weeks out before reopening. In order for RMS to be immediately ready to reopen we would ask those families who haven't completed the RMS Reopening Survey to please submit it as soon as possible.

Coffee with Chris Update 9-22-2020

Good Evening Ranchos Middle School Families,

Coffee with Chris was held today to discuss how distance learning is working for our students. Here are a few topics that were addressed in the meeting:

* Parents asked about GVUSD applying for a wavier to reopen our schools. This topic is not on the board agenda for tonight's meeting, but parents are still welcome to attend. Parents attending the meeting have the opportunity to make public comments. Parents following the board meeting via Zoom do not have the ability to make public comments, but can still follow along to be informed.
Here is the Zoom link: GVUSD Board Meeting Tonight 6:30pm @ Liberty HS

* Parents can access student grades through Aeries, and using Google Classroom to verify is your child has turned in assignments is a great tool as well. Please contact Mrs. Hart with any questions.

* Parents can track student attendance via Aeries to confirm that their child's attendance is correctly entered each day through the Aeries Parent Portal. We understand that the internet can be unstable for our students so we appreciate it when parents communicate "connectivity" issues. This allows us to clear absences. Please contact Mr. Imperatrice with any questions.

* Parents asked about support for our students who might be struggling with the lack of social and emotional interaction. RMS has a excellent website designed by our school psychologist, Mrs. Roos to help with some of these struggles. Mrs. Roos is a great resource for our students. Please click on this link to view her website. Mrs. Roos Website

* Parents asked about how much independent or asynchronous work should be completed on a daily basis. Students should be expected to complete 2 hours of independent work each day. This is a state requirement to account for the afternoons when students are not on Google Meets.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding these topics or anything else.

Have a great night, and As Always Go Mustangs!

Ranchos Middle School 6 Week Progress Report Friday, September 25th
On Friday, September 25th is the end of the 1st 6 weeks of the school year. RMS will send home 6 week progress reports to help communicate the academic progress of your child. The grades being sent home are not final grades. Final grades will be issued at the end of the semester on December 18th. If your child is under a 2.0 GPA, administration will be contacting you to establish the necessary intervention to improve your child’s grades.

Ranchos Middle School ASB Elections
On Friday, September 25th we will hold our annual ASB elections. Students will elect a new President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. All 7th and 8th grade students will be voting in their 5th period class on Friday, and the winners will be announced that Friday afternoon via Parent Square. We look forward to starting our ASB events with our new leadership!

Ranchos Middle School Attendance
RMS attendance for the new school year has been incredible. Our daily attendance rate is higher than it was last year. We appreciate everyone’s continued support with calling in Internet/computer issues and when your child isn’t able to attend class or is tardy. Students are marked tardy if they are not in their scheduled Google Meet at the official start time. Again, we appreciate your patience and communication with these issues.
