Dear Ron Russell Families,

Summer Hours:  Please call ahead to arrange your visit before stopping by to ensure someone is available.  Office staff is limited during the summer.  Summer hours are 8:00AM-3:00PM generally.

Incoming 6th Grade Orientation Begins Promptly at 8:30AM on Thursday, August 30 in The Commons:  The format is changing and will no longer be a drop-in.  There is a set schedule with presentations, so please put a reminder in your calendar now.  Parents will learn information and strategies to help their child transition successfully from elementary to middle school.  Students and parents will meet the staff, get class schedules, meet their classroom teachers, practice with lockers and more.  We look forward to seeing you.

First Day for 6th Graders is Tuesday, September 4.  School start time is 8:20AM and dismisses at 3:00PM.

First Day for 7th-8th Graders is Wednesday, September 5.  Remember that every Wednesday is a late start which means that school begins at 9:40AM.

Parents Prepare:  Sign up for ParentVUE to stay on top of your child’s academic, attendance, and behavioral progress.  Join the Ron Russell Facebook page to see upcoming events and celebrate our students’ successes.
