Principal's Corner

Dear Rundlett Middle School Families,

Thank you for all of your support as the school year continues. Here is your GLC 2.0 Blue Duke Nation weekly update for the week of October26, 2020. 

Transition to Hybrid- Continues!
Please remember that Cohort 1 students attend/access school on Mondays and Thursdays. Cohort 2 students attend/access school on Tuesdays and Fridays. Wednesdays are flex days for all students.
If your child is attending school in person, please remember the following:
  • Don’t forget to complete a screening at home.
  • Please remember to bring the following:
    • mask(s)
    • water bottle
    • headphones/earbuds
    • Chromebook (charge it tonight) and charger
    • supply kit (pencils/pens/erasers/glue stick/markers/scissors/colored pencils) 
    • a sweatshirt/coat for outdoor learning (depending on the forecast)
    • an independent reading book
  • If you and your child have traveled outside of New England this weekend, your child will have to quarantine for 14 days. Students will not be able to attend school even with a negative COVID-19 test until the quarantine period ends. Please contact our school nurse if you have any questions.

End of Day Student Pickup
We need your help when picking up students at the end of the day. Here are some reminders from our Safety Officer:
  • Please do not block the entrance to RMS.  When this happens traffic gets stopped out on South Street and the busses can't get into the driveway.  Also, this creates a concern for emergency vehicle access.  There should be NO cars stopped in the RMS drive way between the ADS parking lot and South Street.

  • If the pick-up line is full entering vehicles should begin filling the second lane to avoid blocking the entrance.

  • Parents should think about finding an alternate pick-up location. An example would be Conant St. by the football practice field.

  • Due to the current situation, we expect a larger amount of parent pick-ups.  If you are going to pick up your child at the school and choose to enter the Rundlett Driveway to do so, please know that you may be stuck in traffic for a short period of time.  Please have patience.  Once the kids are dismissed the parent line moves relatively quickly.

  • During RMS dismissal, there are NO drive through lanes available. 

Blue Duke Care Closet
We wanted to remind you that the Blue Duke Care Closet is a service offered to any RMS family in need of assistance with food and hygiene products at home. Families may request to join at any time by emailing carecloset@sau8.org. The Care Closet offers weekend food bags and provides food for families over school vacations. This year there will also be resources available for holiday meals in November and December. 
NHSAS Testing
RMS students, both remote and hybrid, will be taking the NHSAS assessments in math, writing and reading during the first three weeks of November. We will be sending out a much more detailed letter tomorrow. Please check you email.
