Norsemen Food Pantry is Open!

Attention Roland-Story families! The food pantry is available to all of our families in the district who may need assistance. The food pantry, thanks to support from the Food Bank of Iowa and our local chapter of Kiwanis International, will offer non-perishable food items, frozen food, dairy products and produce, as well as a variety of paper products and cleaning supplies.


Every Sunday from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

Appointments are not necessary. Families are asked to bring bags, boxes or laundry baskets to carry food home although some boxes will be available. To make a donation to the Norsemen Food Pantry or ask questions, please call Roland-Story Middle School at (515) 388-4348.



To improve the safety for our students, RSMS has created a new location for parent pick-up and drop-off on the NORTH side of our building.  Parents have the entire stretch of Elm Street (now a ONE WAY STREET) to drop off their child with sidewalk access into our building.  We ask that students use the sidewalks available instead of walking through the grass or mud.  Please click on the link below to see a map of the new location.  Any questions please call Mr. Town at 388-4348.

Athletic Physicals

Any student, grades 7-12, planning on participating in school sports this year is required to have a physical, insurance, risk form, and concussion form on file in the office prior to practicing.  Please come to the office for the proper forms to take to the doctor or download the form below. The doctor does not usually have all the necessary forms to fill out.

Yearly Physicals and Changes to Vaccine Requirements

A yearly physical is an important part of your child's health & well-being. Physicals are valid for 13 months and cover the sports physical requirements, as well as ensures you are informed of all vaccine requirements and recommendations. This is an excellent time to call your McFarland provider for a check up.
