Kindergarten completed the human body unity by completing life sized replicas of their human body.

Winter Weather Closure and 2-Hour Delay Procedures

As we approach the winter months and the possibility of delayed starts and snow days, we are writing to remind you of our inclement weather policies. RMAE will follow Jeffco Schools for closures and delays.  Jeffco Public Schools rarely takes snow days or implements a delayed start time. We live in an area where snow is typical in the winter and unless the storm is extreme, school will not be cancelled. Parents and guardians can always make the decision to not send their children to school that day if they feel it is unsafe. Our schools are flexible with late arrivals and will always excuse a student absence when called in by a parent or guardian. Click here for more information on Jeffco school inclement weather policies.
