We hope this update finds you well and that you are all becoming more comfortable with distance learning. We appreciate your flexibility and patience as we navigate these uncharted waters.  We are incredibly proud of all the work your children and our teachers have been accomplishing.  Although we are living through a significant historical event, we are missing our students and our colleagues!  We wanted to reach out to provide a few updates on our Middle Level Flexible Learning Plan.

Now more than ever, our sense of control and calm have been threatened by COVID-19, social distancing, and drastic changes in routine.  Increases in stress, anxiety, worry, and emotions related to isolation are unavoidable.  Prior to school closing, we planned to launch the Stop, Breathe & Think Classroom pilot program.  Stop, Breathe & Think Classroom is an educational software that supports Social Emotional Learning through mindfulness activities personalized to a student’s emotional state.  If we were in school, the expectation was that our students would engage in at least one emotional check-in and meditation each day.  The great news is that our students and staff can start this practice from home!  We STRONGLY encourage our students to start now. Students can practice individually and/or families can practice these mindfulness activities together.  The use is unlimited and very easy to access.

I am hoping that you had a relaxing February break with your children.  I wanted to remind parents and students about bringing valuables to school.  All students have been assigned a locker and students have been asked to secure their personal items in their locker.  That being said, I would encourage students to leave any items of value at home.  RLMS is not responsible for any personal property that is lost or stolen. We will always investigate theft and loss but cannot always ensure recovery of items that are missing.

I would like to emphasize the importance of regular school attendance.    We recognize that there are times when illness, a family emergency, or a religious observance makes it necessary for a student to be absent.  If you must take your child out of school for a family vacation, it will be the responsibility of the parents and the student to submit a “Notification of Extended Absence”.  Extended absence forms can be found on the RLMS website under the “PARENT” link.

Gobble Gobble!  Is anyone else feeling like Thanksgiving is so late this year?  I cannot believe the Thanksgiving holiday is finally here.   We will be having our Annual Basketball Bash on Wednesday, November 27th during the ½ day of school.  Our cheerleaders, chamber choir, jazz band and boys and girls basketball teams will be highlighted during the event.  It’s a fun filled time where teachers and students interact both on and off the court in fun and games.

I wanted to send a reminder to parents and students regarding our school safety protocols.  The safety and security of the students and staff at Roger Ludlowe Middle School is our number one priority.  Our Emergency Protocols include procedures for many different types of events.  Scenarios may include fire drills, lockdown drills, relocation drills and evacuation drills.  All drills are designed to have students and staff practice and train in the event of an actual emergency.  All staff has received safety training from both the Fairfield Police Department and administrative team on a wide range of emergency procedures.

I feel so thankful to be part of the RLMS community.  Our teachers, parents and students always seem to find time and energy to give.  Our Student Leadership Club recently raised funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Norma Pfriem Organization.  I recently met with our Counseling Office and we were discussing families in need and the holidays that are quickly approaching.
