Message from Mr. Moore – Week of 11/23-11/24/2020

Rugby words from the principal
Due to the age of this article, the information below could be outdated or incorrect.

I would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone for their help with testing.

Score reports for these tests will come home with face to face students on 11/30, 12/1. For remote students, parents may contact the school regarding these reports. IMPORTANT: These tests give us an idea of how the students are performing with the curriculum currently. Given the circumstances of the last 9 months, please help the students put these scores into proper perspective. These scores tell us a snapshot in time and are not intended to summarize everything a student knows. They merely allow us to see how the students are doing currently.

Athletic competitions:

Both of our active sports- volleyball and cross country- begin their seasons this week. Due to our occupancy limits, only parents of players for home teams and essential personnel may attend. However, we (and all HCPS middle and high schools) are offering live streaming for all events held in our gyms. You may stream our events here: RMS Athletics Live Stream .

On Thursday, November 19, Superintendent Bo Caldwell’s farewell school tour stopped at Rugby.

This was an opportunity for Mr. Caldwell to make one last visit to our school and for our staff and students to thank him for his 36 years of service leadership in HCPS.

Progress Reports:

Quarter 2 progress reports were emailed to parents and students on Friday, November 20. This marks the halfway point of our second grading period. Please review these and contact teachers or the school with any questions you might have. It is SO IMPORTANT that families and schools work together to help students grow toward their potential.

New Temperature Screening Procedure beginning Monday, November 30.

Because the temperature scanners struggle with the cold temperatures outside, HCPS is changing the procedures when students arrive at school. Students will enter an assigned door (based on grade level). Just inside the door, student temperatures will be scanned, and the students sent to class. Obviously, if the student temperature is outside of acceptable limits, we will call for someone to pick the student up. We will begin to allow bus riders into the building at 7:15, but car riders will be allowed in beginning at 7:20. Please continue to pull all the way forward in the car rider line.
