School Motto - Work Hard Be Kind
Please help support RAMS Unite students travel to Catalina Island to participate in the Catalina Environmental Leadership Program in October. This unique program gives students the opportunity to develop skills in: communication, teamwork, friendship building and knowledge and respect for the outdoor world.

Boy's Basketball Information
Any 7th or 8th grader interested in taking part in boy's basketball needs to get a sports physical and have it on file in the office prior to the first day of practice. Additionally, students need to turn in a $50 athletic fee and the sports packet to the front office in order to participate. The packet can be picked up in the front office during normal business hours. Students can sign up for a sport they're interested in.
While COVID protocols have been adjusted for the start of the school year, the virus is still a part of our community. Please be aware of the guidelines MCSD is requesting from schools. Based on state health department guidance, these guidelines are subject to change.
If a student tests positive for COVID-19:
- Families should report a student’s COVID positivity to their child’s school front office.
- The positive student needs to stay home for five days (from the start of their symptom onset or positive test day if no symptoms) and may return to school activities on day six if their symptoms are abating (i.e., they are feeling better and have no fever, or continue to be asymptomatic).
- MCSD recommends the positive student wear a mask upon their return for days six through day ten, though masks are not required.
- Contact tracing and quarantine are no longer required for other individuals at school or activities, but leaders, teachers, coaches, and school staff will be vigilant for symptoms and spread.
When in doubt, please keep your student at home if they are sick. School work can be made up and teachers will work with families as issues regarding illness absences arise.
