Update 1-7-2021: 2nd Semester Plan for RMS

Good Afternoon RMS Families,

We would like to welcome everyone back to the 2nd semester at Ranchos Middle School. RMS will be utilizing the same model for student learning as the 1st semester due to COVID-19 restrictions from the state of California. Distance learning will resume Monday, January 11th at 8:30am. Students will have the same schedule as the 1st semester, and be expected to report on Monday to their 1st period Google Meet at 8:30am.

Report cards for the 1st semester were mailed home the week of December 21st. The 2nd semester is a new reporting period and all grades will be starting over as of January 11th. We encourage our students to work hard this semester and take advantage of tutorial periods( daily from 11:35am to 12:00pm) as well as teachers' office hours (1:35pm to 2:30pm everyday). If you have any questions regarding the academic support for your child during distance learning please contact Mrs. Hart at rhart@gvusd.org .

Distance learning has brought many changes to our learning community, but I would like to congratulate our students and staff for rising to the challenge during the 1st semester of instruction. The online learning and instruction was incredible to observe as a site administrator. We do not know when the COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, but as soon as the state allows RMS to reopen we will be ready to welcome our Mustangs back on to campus! Please contact me with any questions or concerns at cimperatrice@gvusd.org .

Have a great day, and As Always Go Mustangs!
