We have some fun dress days planned for this semester.

Jan. 24- Crazy Hair/ Crazy Sock Day

Students may come to school in a crazy hairstyle or with crazy colored hair as long as the color washes out. They may also wear crazy or mismatched socks that day.

Dear Parents,

The teachers in grades K-5 sent out a reminder that indicated our guideline on smart watches for grades PK-5.

The handbook reads ... "Electronic Watches (PK-5) are not appropriate for students to wear during the school day."

Examples of electronic watches are Apple watches, Android watches or watches on which you can play games, send or receive communications and watches where students may store data that would allow them to cheat. Also, any device or item that tends to distract students from instruction is considered inappropriate and may be taken up by the teacher. Lower level Fitbit watches which count steps and tell time should be appropriate as long as the student is not playing with them.


Blessings,

Mr. Priest

Dear Parents,

As the weather turns colder, we want to remind you of the RCS dress code for lower school.

Outerwear such as hoodies, sweaters, fleece wear, and sweatshirts must be ordered through Lands' End with the RCS logo or the Booster Club.

Heavy jackets of any color may be worn when outside temperatures are below 50 degree.

Thanks for your cooperation with this.


RCS Administration
