Board of Directors (BoD) Updates and Information

RMAE BOD Safety Measure/ Protocol Reminder

One of the benefits in attending RMAE during this time is the ongoing use of the Microbial Air System and Electrostatic sprayers (including in each special classroom) throughout the day to safely disinfect when students are not present in those classrooms and areas of the school.

RMAE’s Safety Measure/ Protocol Reminders are intended to support in-person learning and continued safety of the RMAE Community. They are in no way an indication that RMAE’s status has changed. Thank you for your support of RMAE
