May 2021

Dear RPMS Parents & Guardians:

The month of May promises to be full of activity. We have a full month of classes to cover a challenging curriculum as well as a later than normal, but highly anticipated start to Middle School spring sports set to begin on May 10th. Additionally, the week of May 3-7th is Teacher/School Staff appreciation week. I wanted to thank all of our teachers, nurses, and support staff for all they have done during this challenging school year. Their perseverance and dedication have helped Rocky Point be on the fore front with regard to addressing the challenges of instruction in a world that is ever changing due to the complexities of Covid.

The New York State Assessments in Math will take place on May 4th. Hopefully, you have received our letters regarding the testing procedures at the RPMS. The only students who will come into the building on Tuesday, May 4th will be students who are participating in the Math exams. Eighth grade students not enrolled in Living Environment will have the option to take the NYS assessment in science on June 7th. Please feel free to contact the RPMS with any questions you may have regarding the testing days.

As this incredibly unique school year draws closer to an end, there have been some inquiries regarding end of the year activities, especially for our 8th Grade students. Unfortunately, as a result of Covid limitations and restrictions, the RPMS, like most middle schools in the state, will not be able to host a “Moving Up Dance.” However, plans are well underway to provide our 8th grade students with a special day for them toward the end of June. On, Wednesday, June 23, our 8th grade students will enjoy a picnic lunch, receive their yearbooks, socialize with their classmates, and enjoy a Kona Ice provided by our Rocky Point PTA. We are excited to announce that on Thursday, June 24th, we will host an “in person” “Moving Up” ceremony. We are planning on hosting 3 separate ceremonies where the students and two guests per student, will be able to attend an outdoor ceremony. Student groupings will be arranged alphabetically, and as is the case with any outside event, subject to the weather. In the unfortunate event there is rain forecast for that day, we will host an indoor ceremony that will be limited to students only, as we do not have the ability to host guests indoors. If that were to occur, the event would be live-streamed and posted to our district website. We will share additional detailed information regarding these activities as well as final examination procedures before the end of the month.

Please keep track of your child’s fourth quarter grades by accessing the parent portal regularly. It seems hard to believe but we are already four weeks into the quarter which will end on June 15th. Please keep in mind that a grade may appear on a report card that is below a 50. Fourth quarter grades are also used to determine academic eligibility for fall sports in August /September of 2021. If a child fails two classes, they will be placed on academic probation which will require mandatory extra help attendance if they wish to participate in athletics or clubs. If a student fails three or more classes, the child is considered academically ineligible and will not be permitted to play sports or participate in clubs. (There is however an appeals process). Please use the link to access the parent portal: http://rockypointufsd.org/parentsstudents/eschool_parent_portal

May 4th – NYS Math Assessment

May 10th- First Day of MS Spring Sports

May 17-25- 5th Grade Class Visits
