Principal Letter-Residency, iPad Distribution, and Start Date Information

Dear parents and guardians, good evening. The Royal staff looks forward to having your student attend Rancho Del Rey Middle starting Monday, August 3. Please see the following start of school announcements and updates for your information.

First a reminder that all incoming 7th grade students and students who are new to the school district and Rancho Del Rey are scheduled to pick up their school issued iPad at Otay Ranch High School on Wednesday, July 29th from 8 to 2 PM per the set alpha schedule by last name. Please see the attached iPad pick up memo. The same information is located on our school website link at- http://rdm.sweetwaterschools.orgiPad Pick up Information: English, Spanish

In preparation for the start of the new school year parents will also need to submit your proof of residency and your child’s immunization record with the required vaccinations including the Tdap shot. I have attached a copy of an immunization FAQ for your reference as needed. Immunization FAQEnglish, Spanish

We have set a two day drop off schedule on Thursday and Friday, July 30 and 31st for you to submit your proof of residency document and vaccination record. An acceptable residency verification form includes an SDG&E bill, water bill or other acceptable document outlined in the attached residency affidavit: English, Spanish

Please include the signed and completed affidavit along with a copy of your proof of residency in an envelope with our child’s full name. If you have not previously submitted your immunization record to our school nurse, Ms. Michelle Bell via her school email please include a copy (not the original) of your child’s immunization record/card in the same envelope.

We have set the drop off schedule by alpha as well as a school route map (see attached). If your work schedule does not permit you to go to RDR at the designated time you may drop of the documents on either day between 12 and 6 PM. The purpose of the set times is to minimize the wait time in the drive thru process.  If you are not able to attend either of these dates we will schedule additional drop off dates during the first two weeks of school. Please be sure to adhere to all health guidelines including staying in your vehicle and wear a face covering to ensure everyone’s health and safety. Residency Drop Off Directions: HERE   and Alpha Breakdown: HERE

I am also attaching the RDR bell schedule for the new school year. Parents and students will be receiving instructions on how to access your child’s class schedule which will be made available on your Infinite Campus Parent Portal on Friday, July 31. We will also be sending you instructions on how to link to your child’s teachers accounts by Friday as well. This will enable them to receive and send correspondence with their teachers at the start of the first day of school on Monday, August 3rd. Bell Schedule: HERE

Finally, we will be scheduling textbook pick up starting Wednesday, August 5th thru Wednesday, August 12 with a similar alpha schedule for both 7th and 8th grade students. Students will be given class orientations the first week of school and will not need their textbooks at that time. More information to follow regarding this schedule next week.

We will continue to send out additional start of the school year information between now and next week to provide you updates. Thank you for your continued partnership in our common goal of providing your child with a quality education. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Respectfully,

Juan Ulloa
