March 15 - Message for Families

​Good afternoon! Today is Tuesday, March 15 and this is a message for all Raiders and their families.

As you know, the province has lifted all Covid restrictions and protocols in schools. However, many, many of our Raiders (staff & students) continue to wear their masks. We support this choice, as well as those Raiders who choose not to wear a mask.

We do still encourage everyone to practice good hand hygiene and hand sanitizer is available in every classroom. Teachers are also asked to continue the practice of sanitizing desktops at the end of each class.

We are very excited to return to a more “normal” RVMS. ASAP has started and the schedules for each grade are attached and are posted on our website (look in the “About Us” tab). Students may have the privilege to participate or leave at 2:35 but may also be expected to stay until the end of the school day, which is 3:10.

Tryouts for varsity volleyball continue this week. Second tryouts are Weds for the boy’s team and Thursday for the girl’s team. Tryouts are closed to spectators and participating students will need to be picked up at 4:00. Once tryouts are completed, team rosters will be posted (likely early next week).

We continue to encourage our Raiders to use their cellphones appropriately. We have a much more flexible cellphone policy than many schools as we see this as a learning opportunity, but we have advised our students that we may revert to the stricter district policy should we continue to have students violating the policy. There are absolutely no photos or videos to be taken at school and phones must be turned off during class time unless that teacher, that day, has given permission to use your phone.

Please support us by reminding your child that the use of phones during school is a privilege and requires them to be responsible phone users.

Spring also brings Report Card season and some other school holidays. Please check the list below.

As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at or, on my direct line, at 738-6511.

Ms. T. McGrath
