March 7 - Message to Families

Good afternoon. Today is Sunday, March 7, 2021 and this is Ms. McGrath with a message for all Raiders and their families.

As I am sure you know, New Brunswick returns to the “Yellow” Covid protocols at midnight tonight. That means that all schools will be returning to “Yellow” as well.  At RVMS this means that we will return to the set of protocols we had in place from Sept 8-Nov 22 (prior to Orange). That means:

Masks & Physical Distancing

-All staff, students and visitors will be required to wear masks in any common areas in the school as well as on the school bus. Masks are required in hallways, washrooms and in the locker area.

-Masks are still required, by staff and students, at any time that physical distancing cannot be maintained.

-Students should bring their own masks to school each day. Students should also always have a second clean mask with them.

-Students will not have to wear a mask in the classroom or when they are with their Homeroom class. Students may be asked to wear a mask, for short periods of time, when working closely with staff.

Covid -19 Screening

-All staff, students and visitors are responsible for screening themselves for Covid symptoms prior to arriving at the school each morning. Screening questions will be posted at the main entrance of the building.

Water Bottles

-All students are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle. Fountains are closed. Refilling stations are available at school but arriving with a full water bottle is a good idea. Water Bottles should be sanitized at home at the end of each school day.


-Students will eat in the cafeteria, and have access to microwaves, every other day. On alternate days, students will eat in their Homeroom classroom. Schedule attached.             Lunch Schedule 2020-2021.docxLunch Schedule 2020-2021.docx

I am sure we will continue to see adjustments and changes to protocols throughout the spring. Thank you for your continued patience and support.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school at 738-6511 or by e-mail at General inquiries should go to the main line at 738-6500.

Enjoy your afternoon!

Ms. T. McGrath​
