Dear RMAE Families

Thank you to our community for continuing to be conservative and cautious by keeping your child(ren) home when not feeling well.  As a reminder, students who don’t feel well enough to participate in-person, may log in to the classroom zoom and participate remotely.  Please let the office know if you will be exercising this option so we can adjust attendance accordingly.

Another note that is remote learning related.  RMAE follows Jeffco Schools when snow/inclement weather days are called.  Moving forward Jeffco, and RMAE, will no longer close school due to weather, poor travel conditions, or other urgent issues. Instead, Jeffco will announce “district-wide remote days” either the night before or by 6am the morning of the event.  If this occurs, students will log into their google classroom and follow the “Remote Learning Plan” listed under classwork.  The remote learning plan includes times of live instruction with links as well as assignments.  Please contact your child(ren)’s teacher(s) with questions.

Your Proud Principal,

Dr. Ann Hudson

Annual Giving is THE Big Fundraiser for RMAE

Your participation is critical!

Today marks the half-way point in the Campaign. For those who still need to pledge, please take a moment to talk with your family about what a meaningful gift means to you.  For those who have already pledged, thank you!  Currently, 24% of RMAE families have pledged to the Campaign.  Please act now! Thank you for your support!
