Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome Back! Registration for the 2020-2021 school year is fast approaching. Many things are very different compared to last fall, so we have made a number of changes for this year’s registration to make it as convenient, efficient, and the least congested as possible. Please read this carefully as there are multiple options to accomplish the goals of registration both in person and virtually.
Schedules: We will be sending out every student’s schedule for the 2020-2021 school year on Tuesday, August 4th at 5:00 pm by email to both parents and students. We will also be handing out printed schedules for all students on the first day of school.
If you would like to request a schedule change, you can use this link:
Schedule Change or Appointment Request Form to virtually request that change or to schedule an appointment to discuss a schedule change. Counselors or administration will contact you about that request before the start of school. Requests for schedule changes or appointments must be completed before August 10th to be completed before the start of school
Fees: The only fees for this next school year are optional.
Activity card: $15.00
Locker use fee: $5.00
(Backpacks: Students WILL be allowed to carry backpacks around campus this next year. This is a change from previous years. Because of this, some students may opt not to get a locker.)
If you would like to request fees online and pay at a later date or opt out of these fees online, you can complete this form here: Fee Request/Opt Out Form
Students who request a locker through this link will be assigned a locker and will receive the locker number and the combination with their printed schedule on the first day of school. Students who request activities cards (delivered typically in September) or yearbooks (delivered in May) will receive those when they are typically handed out if the fee is paid by that time.
If you received your schedule, submitted any changes online, and completed the fee request or opt out form online, then you do NOT need to come to in-person registration.
For all others, in-person registration will be organized by last name instead of by grade. We request that only one parent and the students being registered come to registration at their scheduled time. All people who come into the building will be required to wear a mask and to social distance while completing each step of registration. (Masks will be available at the door if needed) Cash, checks or credit / debit cards will be accepted.

6th Grade: We encourage our incoming 6th graders to come with a parent to take a tour of our campus during their designated registration time even if they do not need to complete any registration steps. Teachers, counselors and administrators will be available to take students around for a brief tour and to answer questions.
Supply Lists: They can be found on our website (http://rs.tfsd.org/), or at most local stores. Some classes may request additional supplies specific to their individual classroom needs (i.e. a notebook for a specific class).
First Day of School: School will begin on Wednesday August 19 at 8:40. Attendance will be taken on the first day of school.
Attendance and Absences: For safety purposes, parents must verify each day a student is absent. When your child is absent from school for any reason please call the school at 733-4875 by 10:00 AM each day. Someone is available to answer the phone beginning at 7:30 AM each day. If your child has not been verified by 10:00 AM on the day your child is absent we will make every effort to contact you to verify your child’s absence.
Athletics: All athletes must have a current physical examination from a local physician on file prior to the first practice. *All practices will be held at RSMS.
RSMS Tentative Fall Tryout/Start Schedule: To be announced Monday August 3rd.
Bus Information: Parents are asked to request bus service online. Visit the district website: https://www.tfsd.org/parents/enrolling-your-student/ to submit your bussing request.
Birth Certificate on File: All students attending the public school must have their birth certificate on file in the school. Idaho Code requires that each student have a certified copy of the birth certificate. If you do not have this record on file, please plan to do so.
Proof of Immunization: The Idaho Code requires that updated immunization records be presented prior to enrollment in our school. Please be sure your child is properly immunized before enrolling in school. Without proof of immunization we cannot enroll any child.
