  • Update from Our Principal

    I hope you have enjoyed summer—relaxing, recharging and getting ready to start the new school year. Our entire staff is thrilled to be back to in-person learning! We look forward to welcoming everyone on the first day of school, Wednesday, September 8, 2021!

    Due to a shortage of bus drivers, RCSD had to modify arrival and dismissal times for select elementary schools. The NEW arrival and dismissal times for our Kindergarten through grade 6 students have moved back thirty minutes from the 2020-2021 school year.

    Effective September 8, our Kindergarten-Grade 6 students begin school at 9:30 am and dismiss at 4:00 pm. Arrival and dismissal times for Pre-K Students remain the same at 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

    Important Dates:

    1. 9/1/21 5:30 pm Virtual Orientation on Zoom video conference. You may join 2 ways:

    1. On the Zoom App, enter meeting ID: 944 6333 2886 & passcode: 958533 or

    We are a joyous and nurturing community with the common goal of enriching your child’s life and developing responsible and caring students. We promote high-level learning in a safe environment. I eagerly look forward to greeting everyone on September 8, 2021. Together we will make this school year a positive and successful one!
