Hey Raiders!

Week 2 and things continue to move along smoothly at RVMS!

I have a few messages for families:

1.   We continue to work with the District to update our bus information but we still have many errors in the system. Please check the bus information regularly at the website below. You can also sign up to receive notifications of any changes/corrections to your child’s bus info.


2.   Please help us keep our Raiders safe. Do not enter the bus area (past the concrete planters) during morning drop-off of after school pick-up. Students can meet you in either of the lower parking lots or over by the rink but you cannot enter the area between the traffic circle and the building as this poses a safety hazard to our students.


3.   Please register your child in Cashless Schools (click on the “make a payment” button on our homepage). This system is used for all sports and activity fees, trip payments, yearbooks, student fees etc. Being registered before you need to, insures that your child does not miss some of these opportunities.


4.   Speaking of Cashless Schools, our student fee is $35 and is now due for all students. We will not ask you to do any fundraising during the school year, but that does mean that it is really important that student fees be paid. This money goes to support some of the activities, trips, awards, equipment etc. that need to be purchased each year to support the many, many opportunities we provide our students.


5.   Our Open House/Meet the Teacher is scheduled for next Thursday, September 19th from 6:00-7:30 pm.


6.   Bayside Middle school has a speaker booked Thursday, September 26th to discuss consent and risky behaviour in the era of social media. The topic is specific to Middle School concerns. See attached flyer.


As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. You can reach me at or, on my direct line, at 738-6511.
