Dear RMAE Parents,
Importance of School Hours—We are experiencing increasing number of students arriving late to school as well as being picked up early. This is disruptive to the school day. Our dedicated teachers start class on time and teach until it is time for dismissal. When your child arrives late, he/she is missing important information as well as disrupting others. We appreciate that emergencies arise which require an early dismissal, however these should be the exception.
A reminder that the school day hours are:
Middle 7:45 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.
K-3 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
4-5 8:00 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.
Thank you for your help ensuring your student arrives on time to get settled in and ready to learn on time as well as stay seated until dismissal.
