operational plan and follow strict guidelines due to Covid-19. Each homeroom

Code of Conduct
With only a few weeks remaining, it is a great opportunity
for you to review the RMS Code of Conduct with your child. Our school code of

East School District and RMS continues to promote an expectation of positive
Digital Citizenship within our organization and that expectation is extended to
our community. We would like to remind our community to engage in responsible,
fair, and positive interactions both in person and online or on social media.
