I am hoping that you have had a safe and restful holiday. Personally, I was able to “turn off” and enjoy time away from technology and catch up with family. I am writing to you to remind you that Wednesday, January 6th is our first day of our adjusted Wednesday schedule. Cohort A will attend in person tomorrow. Cohort B students will attend virtually in a google meet according to the adjusted Wednesday schedule. Cohorts will alternate each week according to the January/February cohort schedule. It is essential that your child attend each of their classroom “meets” when at home.
As you may already be aware, we will be revising our Wednesday schedule at the middle school level as of 1/4/21.
I am again asking for your assistance to help us enforce students wearing appropriate clothing to school and during remote learning Google “Meets”. I am beginning to see more and more “belly tees” and midriffs (the kids have no idea what this means if I use that word). Please make note of what your child is wearing when they leave the house in the morning.
RLMS is able to offer several clubs, activities and music ensembles during hybrid learning. Please note that some of these groups will meet virtually, some will meet in person by cohort and some will meet in a combination of the two. We make every effort to run as many after school clubs as possible. After school busing will not be available. Parents/guardians must provide transportation.
The RLMS staff continues to work to improve school to home communication. I frequently hear from parents “my child tells me very little about his/her day”. In an effort to support parents in school conversations and clarity of what is being done in the classroom, we are publishing a WEEKLY Curriculum Corner link on the RLMS web page under the “Parent Link”. The information provided will give parents/guardians some great insights and sentence starters like “I hear you are talking about being a good reader and writer. What does that mean to you?” The hope is for you to hear more about your child’s day at RLMS. As always, feel free to contact the teacher if you have specific questions or concerns. Teachers will also be posting information about upcoming "meets" and assessment dates.
Dear 6th Grade Parents and Students:
Welcome to Roger Ludlowe Middle School! We understand the challenges that we have all faced over the past few months with distance learning, social distancing and wearing masks. Our hope is to engage you in the exciting year ahead! Crew and cohort information should be listed in your Infinite Campus portal. Crew and supply information can be found on the RLMS website under the “Parent” tab. Please review this information carefully and note that lockers will not be used at this time. All students will need a bag or backpack to carry supplies during the school day.
Dear RLMS 7th and 8th Grade Parents and Students:
We are excited to have you back at Roger Ludlowe Middle School! Crew and cohort information should be listed in your Infinite Campus portal. Crew and supply information can be found on the RLMS website under the “Parent” tab. Please review this information carefully and note that lockers will not be used at this time. All students will need a bag or backpack to carry supplies during the school day.
I realize that this has been the year of “unknowns.” I hope this letter finds you healthy and enjoying your summer vacation. I am looking forward to the upcoming year at Roger Ludlowe Middle School and I anticipate some exciting opportunities for all of our students. Please mark your calendar that opening day for all students is Tuesday, September 8th.
As we get closer to the start of the school year, we understand there are many questions that you may still have about what the school year will look like. We apologize that we have not had an opportunity to communicate more frequently about the start of school. However, guidance from the Governor and Commissioner of the Education has been changing over the last several weeks, causing us to work closely with Superintendent Mike Cummings and the central office staff to design a re-entry plan.
Beginning on Monday, November 16, 2020, the middle schools will be moving to a more synchronous model of instruction for our students' at-home days. Please click this link to read through the details of this shift and the updated student responsibilities that will accompany this change.
