Parent Letter - 12/2/22

December 02, 2022
By Bill Sharp

Dear Parents and Families of RCS,

The in-between times of Thanksgiving and Christmas can leave us feeling a bit overwhelmed and pulled in every direction so it is a great time to stop, breathe, and think about how thankful we are.  Here at RCS, we daily count the blessings God pours out on the staff, students, and families.  “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.” (Hebrews 13:15).  We are grateful for:

  • God’s provision in staffing, as He brought a blessing in the form of Mr. Weir, a Middle School English teacher, to replace Mrs. Williamson who had to move for family reasons.
  • The $475 was raised by the RCS Yard Sale to help buy food and other needs for the Good Samaritan Inn.
  • The 128 shoeboxes were collected by the Elementary students for Operation Christmas Child.
  • Over $3,700 raised from the RCS Auction to help pre-fund our financial assistance

I’d like to remind you of the protocol involving sickness for you and your student:

  • If your student develops a fever or complains of continual sore throat or headache, please keep them home.  They may return to school once they have been fever-free WITHOUT MEDICATION for 24 hours.  Although a sore throat could be due to a number of factors, consider testing for strep; follow your doctor’s recommendation for treatment and return to school.
  • If your student tests positive for COVID, keep them home for a minimum of 5 days from the onset of the first symptoms.  If they are symptom-free after 5 days, they may return to school, but we recommend they wear a mask for the next 5 days.
  • If your student has been exposed to COVID but is asymptomatic, they should wear a mask for 10 days and should get tested on Day 6 after first exposure.  If they develop symptoms at any time, they should isolate themselves and follow the steps listed above.

Here is an easy way to support RCS by just “doing what you do”.  If you shop at Kroger (or know anyone else who shops there), all you have to do is link your Kroger Shopper’s Card to RCS.  Here is a link to do just that - https://www.kroger.com/i/community/community-rewards.  Please tell/encourage anyone you know who shops at Kroger to link RCS to their Shopper’s Card.  Thank you!

Praying for peace and safety over you this week; we are thankful for each of you and your partnership with us.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
