RCMS is currently accepting students for our Extended Day Program (EDP). The purpose of the Extended Day Program is to provide a quality afterschool experience where each child receives academic support, gains social emotional skills, and develops deepened relationships in a safe and nurturing environment. EDP runs every full school day from 3:30-6 and follows the GCS calendar. The program is not open on half-days, teacher work days or holidays. There is a $40 registration fee and the fees are listed below:

Interested in receiving text messages about school cancellations and other schedule changes?
The GCS Alert Form-English and GCS Alert Form-Spanish can be found by clicking the appropriate link. The form is only for parents who currently have a landline listed as their “Primary Contact Phone” and wish to receive texts about school cancellations or other emergency schedule changes. Parents who already list a cellular phone as their primary contact will not need to take action to receive this service. Additional information from the District.
Parents, please be reminded that our school policy regarding early dismissal asks that parents not seek an early dismissal after 2:45. Early dismissals at any time are disruptive to the school day and are particularly problematic in the last 30 min. of our instructional day.
