Back To School Newsletter & Documents 2023-2024 

Greetings, RMS families:


Welcome back and here we go… ready to start the 2023-24 school year!

This is the first of messages we’ll send in the next week. Below are some quick updates for your planning purposes and attached to this email are beginning-of-the-year documents and forms. This email communication is in lieu of a back-to-school packet we historically have sent in the mail. We know it is a *lot* and we hope you can find some uninterrupted time in the next week to peruse it. We appreciate your attention!

First Days of School

  • We’ll see our 6th grade students at 9:00 am on Wednesday, September 6 and our new 7th and 8th grade students at 12:30 pm. Sixth grade students will be dismissed at 2:35 pm and new 7th and 8th grade students will be done at 1:30 pm.
  • We look forward to welcoming all students on Thursday, September 7 at 9:00 am; breakfast starts at 8:30 am and doors open at 8:15 am. Students should attend House first on 9/7. There, they will get their schedules and reconnect with friends and peers.

Parents at Roosevelt


  • We are still looking for a parent volunteer to take over our eNews publication, now with a new and improved program that is easy and beautiful to use. We estimate this is a 1-2 hour job per week and we’d love to have your help. Interested? Please contact Skye ( or Laura ( Thank you!
  • Our campus clean-up continues! We would love to see you at our current event today– Friday, August 25.  Please stop by for an hour and help us out with a few end-of-summer tasks.  We so appreciate everyone who has been able to make it so far and look forward to future events to keep our community clean and connected!  We’re also planning another clean-up event for Tuesday, September 5 all day– stay tuned for additional information.

Free LTD Transit Pass!

  • All students in 4J schools can get a student pass to ride Lane Transit District (LTD) buses for free.
  • Student transit passes can be used to travel anywhere within the LTD service area. Student passes can be used at any time—after school, on weekends and during school breaks, as well as to get to and from school each day.
  • To get a free LTD student transit pass, available as a tap card or Umo smartphone app, middle school students can request their own passes at the front office.
  • Passes are valid from September 1 of the current school year to September 30 of the following year and can be renewed by the school each year for ongoing free service.

The Start of the Year…

… is exciting and can be expensive! We invite anyone who needs additional support to contact Skye Stier ( or Alison Wagner ( Our school supply list is linked here… and though we do our best to provide every student with the supplies they need, we could also use your generous support at the beginning of the year.  Please link to our RMS School Pay to pay any fees or make a thoughtful donation.  This is also where you can purchase the RMS Yearbook and support our RMS Library.  We truly appreciate any additional funding from our families, for our families.
We’ll send more program updates soon… until then, thanks for reading and we’ll see you soon!
