District 196 Social Studies Survey
District 196 students in grades 6-12 will be taking a survey in the upcoming weeks to help provide anonymous feedback regarding their experience within their Social Studies class. The information from this survey will help our Social Studies teachers think about how we teach, the materials we select, and the classroom experiences of our students. As with all student surveys, we will have a copy of the survey available in the main office for parents to preview.

End of the Year Grade-Level/House Event:
As we plan for the end of the school year the RMS staff will continue to emphasize the importance of high expectations at RMS. The end of the year grade-level/house celebration and culminating events will be for those who are behaviorally eligible. Students receiving two or more behavioral referrals 20 days prior to the culminating celebration (May 13 or after) will not be eligible to participate in this celebration event. School staff will notify parent/guardian(s) when a behavioral referral has been assigned.

RMS Summer Academy
RMS Summer Academy invites were emailed to families of students invited to attend. More information will be emailed to the parents of registered students closer to the June 21 start date. If you have any questions, please contact Andrea Loger at andrea.loger@district196.org or 651-423-7573.

Student Drop-off and Pick-up
As our student enrollment continues to grow at RMS, our student drop-off traffic in the morning does as well.  I’d like families to take time to review the expectations for student drop-off so we can increase efficiency and student safety during this morning routine.  Please review this drop-off map to best understand how morning drop-off should go.
 

1.    Vehicles should pull all the way up to RES (or as far as possible) when dropping your RMS student off.  Stopping in front of our visitor parking lot creates a traffic jam behind you and on Highway 3.
 

2.    Drop-off should occur next to the curb in the drop-off lane.
 

3.    Have your child exit the car as quickly as possible to keep our drop-off moving.
 

4.    Leaving early and allowing extra time is helpful. The most popular time for student drop-off is around 8:30 a.m. so please plan accordingly.
 

5.    ALL doors on the south side of RMS are unlocked at 8:15 a.m. This means pulling all the way up to RES allows multiple options for students to enter the building.

District 196 Food & Nutrition Message:
Through special funding from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, students will continue to have access to free meals for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. However, we have some updates regarding the availability and distribution of our free meals. We will no longer serve meals to the greater community, as we refocus on providing meals during the school day to our in-person learners. We are grateful to our community for supporting our efforts to ensure students across Dakota County had access to nutritious meals.
 

In-Person Learning students will still have access to free breakfast and lunch, as well as take-home meals to support them on Wednesdays and weekends.
 

Digital Academy students, enrolled in the full-time distance learning model, will still have the option of picking up a free seven-day meal kit at any of our secondary schools. Beginning Wednesday, April 21, meal kits for our 196 Digital Academy learners will be available to pick up on Wednesdays from 10-11 a.m. at any secondary school. If your family would like to pick up seven-day meal kits, please provide updated information by completing this seven-day meal kit survey. Completing this brief survey assists our Nutrition Services Department in preparing an adequate number of kits.
 

For information on local food resources, please review our list of local food shelves and community meal opportunities. If you have any questions, visit our website at District196.org/meals, email nutrition@district196.org or call 651-683-6956.
