Thoughts from the Front Office

Dear RMS Community:

We have reached the final day of school for 2021, the shortest of the year.  The focus will honor that brevity as well.  Please enjoy the break from school, time with loved ones, hopefully good weather, and some time for restful reflection.  We cannot thank you enough for your support during this crazy calendar year.  Lighter days are coming.

RMS will be closed for the duration of the beak.  We have asked teachers to refrain from assigning or grading work - trying to give everyone time to recharge in anticipation of 2022.  We will check emails periodically, but hope that everyone takes this opportunity to unplug and pursue your own passions.  

Until January 3rd, please stay safe, be well, and take care of each other.
