Principal's Message


     I would like to welcome everyone to a new school year!  The staff and I are exited to get the school year started. This message is to help guide parents, students and staff to a successful start to the year.  We will be posting school information and updates on schoolpointe App and the RVMS PTO Page on facebook,  Our  building goals will be to keep all of our students safe, and to help them to show academic growth.  We have been planning academic instruction to help meet students learning needs and will be working with  students on how to use technology and student portfolios during school and for  home instruction if needed.  It is important that Staff and parents communicate  and support all of our students as they begin a new school year.  We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your students.


Procedures for the School Day:

The first day of School for students will be August  25th. 

Parents may drop off students starting at 7:15 am.  Please use the first lane marked Student Drop Off,  drive around to the side entrance at the corner of the building.    VERY IMPORTANT, Do not park or drop off in the front of the building.  This is the Bus Drop Off Zone .  Student will be coming off of several buses at one time.   Parents and visitors should use the parking at the side of the building in the morning if they need to park.  . Students will need to wear a mask while on a bus, while in the school building it is recommended that students wear a mask, but not required at this time.  Students will need to have a mask in their book bag encase they may need one.  Sixth grade students will report to the cafeteria.  7th and 8th grade students will report to the gym for breakfast   Students who are riding a school bus will  enter the school at the front entrance and report to their grade level area for breakfast.
