NEW VISITOR CHECK IN SYSTEM
We will have a new visitor management system starting January 7th.  All visitors will be required to present their ID to be scanned in the office prior to going on to campus. The check in process may take a little longer initially since the office staff will need to check you in and out for each visit.  Please be sure to allow extra time when you come to check in.  Thank you


GATE Testing 

The 2020-2021 school year GATE identification test will be administered at the District Office for students currently in 2nd – 7th grade.  The students will take the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, OLSAT, that tests abstract thinking and reasoning ability.  Students must attend one of the testing dates on the OLSAT Parent Permission Form in order to complete the testing by the district.

The Parent Permission Forms are on our district website @ www.rcsdk8.org  Click on the Main Menu and then under Programs – Gifted and Talented Education.  All forms must be returned to the District Office by December 20, 2019 if you would like your student tested. There are no exceptions as materials are ordered based on the number of returned forms. Make sure you check the RCSD website for more information regarding GATE services and testing.
