    Good afternoon! On behalf of the school district, everyone is on Spring break, including Ms. Moyer. This request was received and is being processed. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and patience while staff works on this. Please do not expect further reply from administration this week. They have worked so incredibly hard since last March 13. As board chair, I have strongly encouraged each one to just enjoy this break. Thank you, in advance for understanding.

     

    Sincerely,

    Kimberly McMichael
    RCS BOE Chair

    Thank you so much,
    Dr. Deirdre Moyer
