In order to be tested weekly at school:
1) Make sure your student is registered through Primary Health. Link here
2) Every week, schedule an "appointment" to consent for that week's test. Link here
In addition, there is weekly FREE COVID testing for all RCSD students and staff.

Calling all Project Cornerstone volunteers!
Project Cornerstone has gotten the go-ahead to allow parent volunteers IN THE CLASSROOM (yay!!), to help teach our children important social emotional lessons and skills.

Announcing our first TRUNK OR TREAT event!
Friday, October 29, 9am-11am
Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to decorate their car trunks. Cars will be parked in the parking lot that morning, and students will get an opportunity to parade through the parking lot in their costumes, and view all the decorated trunks!
Due to COVID, parents can only observe the parade if they are in a car (or sit in a friend's car).
Yearbook Club needs old digital cameras
The Yearbook team is working out details to restart the Yearbook Club for 4th and 5th graders.
Do you have an old digital camera gathering dust? Consider donating to the Yearbook Club, so our "press team" can take photos and create an amazing yearbook!
Have extra kids' face masks, or gently used toys?
The school is going through lots of face masks (imagine 400+ students dirtying and breaking face masks!), and is looking for any donations of kids masks!
Doing some fall cleaning and finding any forgotten toys? The school could use any gently used toys as prizes for PBIS and recognition of other good deeds on campus.
Bring any donations to the front office!
