Sick children do not perform well in class and can expose their classmates to a virus or other illness. If your child complains that he/she does not feel well, please check his/her temperature before sending him/her to school. If your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more before you give him/her Tylenol, Advil, Motrin or some other appropriate fever-reducing medication, keep your child at home.
Your child should not return to school until he/she has been fever-free without the help of Tylenol or another product for 24 hours. When your child does come back to school, he/she should go by the nurse’s office and have his/her temperature checked before going to his/her classroom.
Items are beginning to accumulate at the RCE Lost and Found. Please make sure your student checks the Lost and Found for any items that may belong to them. The Lost and Found is located at the end of the 400 Hall.
M.E.N. at Work, standing for Meeting Each Need, is a community-involvement program, unique to RCE, which will encourage and promote volunteerism among fathers, grandfathers and other male community members. Through this program, we aim to better support and meet the needs of our students, as well as better identify and utilize resources and members within our community.
Our Rangers really enjoy having our M.E.N at Work volunteers helping to open car doors! You will recognize these volunteers by their bright orange vests. Currently our M.E.N at Work help out on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month. We are looking to expand to other volunteer opportunities.
Interested in joining M.E.N. at Work? Reach out to our school counselors via phone or email!
