February 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians

Hopefully esteemed meteorologist, Punxsutawney Phil is correct and we will be cruising into an early Spring!  It is hard to believe the school year is more than half way complete.  

The month of February brings some important items that you should be aware of as parents. Be sure to speak with your child about selecting courses for their schedules for the 2020-2021 school year.  Counselors will be visiting the classrooms in the coming weeks to discuss and distribute scheduling worksheets. Feel free to contact your child’s counselor with any questions following these classroom visits.   The week of February 10th- 14th is Spirit Week in the RPMS.  Monday, is “RP Spirit” day, students are encouraged to show their school spirit by wearing Rocky Point apparel.  Tuesday is “Sports” day, wear your favorite team’s jersey or hat.  Wednesday is “Mismatch” day, students should wear clashing outfits.  Thursday is “Pajama” day, students should wear cozy attire that is appropriate for school, please remember, students may not wear slippers.  Friday is “Grade Level Color” day, 6th grade should wear red, 7th grade should wear white and 8th grade should wear blue in preparation for our annual “Battle of the Grades” event that will take place during the school day on Friday, February 14th.   The RPMS’ annual “Poetry Slam” will take place immediately after school on Wednesday, February 12th.  School is not in session the week of February 17th -21st for Mid-Winter Recess.  As a reminder, the RPMS and RPHS have recently unveiled our new eSchool Student Portal, which permits students the ability to log in and view their own attendance, grades, as well as, other important information.  It works in a similar manner as the eSchool Parent Portal, students can create a log in and stay informed of their progress throughout the year.  Lastly, Officer Lynaugh from the SCPD will be coming into the building and presenting important information to our students about internet safety.

As a reminder, students who want to stay after school to watch an athletic event, must go home on their regular dismissal bus as there is no supervision for them between the end of the day at 2:15 and 4:00 or 4:30 athletic event start time.   Students may come back up to the building at 4:00 to root on their friends and fellow students.  Also, if you are allowing your child to walk off school grounds at the end of the school day, please send in a signed written note authorizing this to the RPMS Main Office.  Students who leave the school grounds are not permitted to use the late bus transportation.

The weather during the month of February may bring about the necessity for weather related issues.  If inclement weather leads to a decision for school to be closed or for a two-hour delayed opening, please check the following radio/TV stations:  WALK FM 97.5, WBLI FM 106.1 or TV– Cablevision News 12, as well as, via the District’s Blackboard Connect telephone notification system.  The weather may also result in the district utilizing Inclement Weather Bus Stops at times.  These may be called for at any time during the day so it is recommended you review the inclement weather stops for your child, as soon as possible.  (The Inclement Weather Stops are accessible through your Parent Portal account, click on the inclement weather bus stop link under your child’s regular bus stop).  If you require assistance with the Parent Portal, please call 631-744-1600, extension 7726.   

The RPMS “Virtual Book Bag” continues to be a source for viewing flyers and important information at the Middle School and in the community.  Please visit our Virtual Book Bag site:
