Parent Info Letter - 2018-2019.docxParent Info Letter - 2018-2019.docx


Hello! Today is Tuesday, September 25th and this is Ms. McGrath calling with a few messages for Raiders and their families.
I have attached a letter outlining emergency procedures. Please review this letter which contains very important information for families and is also posted on the main page of our website. Teachers are also reviewing our Emergency Procedures with students.
We have had a few questions about dropping off/picking up students at RVMS so I have a few notes for you:   
-students cannot be dropped off before 7:55 in the morning; they should also not be left waiting at the rink before this time as there are no teachers on duty to monitor them. Regular school hours are 8:40-3:10 and students are expected to be available to attend during those hours.
-when families are dropping off their children in the morning, or picking them up at dismissal, they should not enter the “school side” of the traffic circle. We recommend parking either at the parking lot near the Zamboni doors at the rink (soccer field side of the school) or in the lower parking lot at the Epworth Park entrance to the school.
-when families are dropping off or picking up students during the school day, as this is outside of bus loading times, they may come up to the school and park in that area but be aware that your car will not be able to move at any time when buses are present.
We are still looking to collect student fees from about 65 students. Our fees cover the cost of your child’s agenda, an annual trip to the Imperial Theatre and other student events and activities at the school. We do not ask families to participate in any fundraising for the school but we do need this student fee to fund our activities and ask that you send in this fee if you have not already done so.
School Pictures were on Monday and your child should have brought home the proof sheet. Photography Flewwelling will be picking up the picture orders on Monday, October 1st so please return your orders by that time. If you require a retake, you must return the proof and indicate that you would like a retake on October 11th when the photographers return.
All Middle and High School students in the District will be viewing a video title “Caroline’s Story” and learning about allergies, anaphylaxis and what to do in these emergency situations. If you would like to preview the video you will find the link in the email version of this message and posted on the school website at:
Finally, my PSSC has suggested that we move to an e-mail only version of this weekly message…and I am happy to oblige. This means that you won’t have your phone tied up and have to listen to my voice each week. Beginning next week, this will be an e-mail only message. If you want to continue to receive the phone message version, please contact me here at the school.
That is all for this week. As always, you can reach the school at 738-6500 or my direct line at 738-6511, or e-mail me at at any time. Information is also available at our website at
Thank you and good evening!
