A Reminder from the Nurse
Illnesses are beginning to creep up in our area. Please remind your child to cover their cough, wash their hands frequently (especially after using the bathroom or blowing their nose).
Per district policy:
· If your child has a fever (100.4 or higher), they should not come to school. They must be fever free for 24 hours without medication to return to school.
· If your child is vomiting or has diarrhea, they should not attend school. They should be diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school. They should also be able to eat 1-2 meals without vomiting before coming back to school.
· If you follow these policies, this should help prevent the spread of these illnesses.
Interested in receiving text messages about school cancellations and other schedule changes?
The GCS Alert Form-English and GCS Alert Form-Spanish can be found by clicking the appropriate link. The form is only for parents who currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” and wish to receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes. Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will not need to take action to receive this service. Additional information from the District can be found HERE.
Parents, please be reminded that our school policy regarding early dismissal asks that parents not seek an early dismissal after 2:45. Early dismissals at any time are disruptive to the school day and are particularly problematic in the last 30 min. of our instructional day.
RCMS Grade Level Policies can be found HERE and also under the Parent and Student tabs, above.
