Important! Coronavirus Concerns and Resources
Dear Rose Hill Middle School families. RHMS PTSA understands that these are uncertain and unprecedented times that can lead to heightened anxiety and stress for our students and families. For that reason RHMS PTSA has collected a group of links to websites to keep you informed and link you to relevant resources. Please know that RHMS PTSA has been working year-round, using your generous donations to ensure that all our students (including students from families in need) are provided for through: supplemental fresh fruit for RHMS students' Pantry Packs, our mini grant program, our scholarship assistance fund, emergency preparedness supplies, student planners and more. You can continue to support the work that we do by making a tax-deductible donation to our organization. Please note that many area employers will match employee donations to a 501(c)(3) organization like ours. 
You can also help RHMS families in the following ways:
  • 1. Donating gift cards that will be distributed by RHMS to families in need. Many of our students that rely on the school for breakfast, lunch and food over the weekend (Pantry Packs) have parents that work in the service industry and they have lost their jobs. These families were on a tight-rope before the COVID-19 shutdown and now they are in dire circumstances. Gift cards for grocery store purchases can be mailed to: Gift Card Drive, 4040 - 168th Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052.
  • 2. Volunteering with the Eastside COVID Community Help group. Volunteers sign up to buy and deliver food to community members that are food-insecure, immuno-compromised, or quarantined. Families who need food can request help from this group here.

RESOURCES AND INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19
 
LWSD Resources  
LWSD is working to provide services during the school closures from March 12 to April 24, 2020. For the most up-to-date information, please visit the LWSD Coronavirus (COVID-19) website.
MealsGrab and Go student meals for students will be provided at the six middle school sites across the district. Meals must be preordered here. The district is working on delivery options. Pantry Packs will distribute weekend packs on Fridays at the middle school meal sites. Please check the Pantry Packs website for the latest information in case of changes.

Childcare: Please take the LWSD Childcare Interest Survey by Monday, March 16 at Noon. Priority will be given to families who are healthcare workers/first responders. NOTE: Our initial survey that went out to families closed on Monday, March 16. We are working on creating child care spaces for those families who are healthcare workers or first responders. If you missed the first window, and still need care, please complete the form. You will be contacted by appropriate staff (Extended Day, YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs) and they will let you know where space is available.

Education: The district is planning for non-graded, educational opportunities for students during the closure at home. Educational resources with supports for at-home learning is available at the LWSD Remote Learning Resources website
The district is working on obtaining and distributing laptops and wifi hot spots for the students in our district who do not have these options at home. Here is a survey being used to help determine the need for technology equipment in our community:

From our Play Co-Producers

Thank you to everyone who came to see Disney's Lion King Jr.!  The students worked incredibly hard and delivered great performances.  

Congratulations to all our performers and stage crew – you did a fantastic job!  Thank you to former RHMS students Ashley Locke and Max Fanning for returning to provide guidance and mentorship to our cast.

Thank you to all our parent volunteers. A program like this is impossible without your support.  

Finally, a huge thank you to My Floss Productions, specifically Heidi Jensen, Andrew Pang, Stephanie Locke, and Molly Hall. Your direction and hard work insured a successful production and experience for our students.  

Plans for next year's play are in discussion and will be announced at the start of the 2020-2021 school year.  

Thank you!

Danelle Mathews, Evelyn Chambers, and Yuni Yu
