Welcome to RMS!

July, 2019

Greetings Rifle Middle School Families,

We are refreshed and eager to partner with you in another year of teaching and learning. Welcome families of our incoming 6th grade students - we look forward to having you as part of the RMS community!  We are excited to have kids back in our classrooms and hallways, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for life and learning.  

The master schedule will stay much the same this year with the first bell at 7:45 AM, the tardy bell at 7:53 AM and kids released for the day at 3:59 PM (let’s call it 4:00!).  

We know how important communication is and we will continue to use our website, FaceBook page, auto dialers, and marquee to provide the information you need. The entire school district is using a new platform for our website(s) and it will officially launch Thursday, August 1. If you are a member of social media, we hope you will join our FaceBook page where we will post information, pictures, and our daily video announcements. The official RMS Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/RifleMiddleSchool/  Questions posted to our Facebook page are generally answered quickly.  Don’t hesitate to call our office if you need information.

This school year our students will be assigned a Chromebook to use during the school day as needed for learning in their classes. We will be providing information to you about how damage or loss of the device will be handled.

We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to go on Power School or contact the office to verify we have a correct daytime phone number, updated contacts in case of an emergency, as well as other correct information. 

We will continue to keep the focus on learning by requiring that kids turn off cell phones during the school day and either put them in their lockers or otherwise out of sight. They will be able to use them before and after school. Messages to students can be communicated via the front office during the school day at 665-7900. We are asking for your support as we fulfill our obligation to provide children with an excellent education by limiting the cell phone distractions. 

TOGETHER we will make it a fantastic year!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Nipper
