RMAE Happenings

EnrollJeffco - You should have received an email from our District on Monday about EnrollJeffco.  We would like to take a moment to clarify its impact on our community.  Every year, we ask our current families to complete an internal, intent to return to RMAE form.  This intent to return form is being replaced with EnrollJeffco.  All current RMAE families will need to indicate whether they are returning to RMAE, or choosing a different school within the District, through EnrollJeffco during the First Round Choice Enrollment Period (JAN 22 - FEB 8, 2018).  We will be sending out a link for you to complete this online form as soon as the District makes this new process available.  Let us know if you have any questions.
