Starting tomorrow (August 31, 2021) masks will required for students and staff while inside the school building, in alignment with District 11's policy. This decision is in response to the El Paso County Public Health COVID community transmission rate now surpassing the District’s 200/100K threshold for elementary grades. Please remember to send your student to school with a mask.
Remember: Tomorrow from 5:00-6:00 is Open House at RCA. Stop by, meet your students' teachers, and check out some of the cool new stuff we have in the building -- like our new art room!
Please consider donating gently used uniform clothes to RCA when your students outgrow them. We use these for kids who need an emergency change in the middle of the day. We especially need clothes for boys in all sizes. Thank you RCA family!
Remember tomorrow is Red Day for our Kindergarteners!
