Third Grade

Dear Parents,

The handbook reads ... "Electronic Watches (PK-5) are not appropriate for students to wear during the school day."

Examples of electronic watches are Apple watches, Android watches or watches on which you can play games, send or receive communications and watches where students may store data that would allow them to cheat. Also, any device or item that tends to distract students from instruction is considered inappropriate and may be taken up by the teacher. Lower level Fitbit watches which count steps and tell time should be appropriate as long as the student is not playing with them.

RCS Administration

Dear Parents,

As the weather turns colder, we want to remind you of the RCS dress code for lower school.

Outerwear such as hoodies, sweaters, fleece wear, and sweatshirts must be ordered through Lands' End with the RCS logo or the Booster Club.

A solid color heavy coat (non-RCS) may be worn outside on those really cold days.

Thanks for your cooperation with this.
