Charles Co. Summer school starts July 7, make-up courses free for students  - The Southern Maryland Chronicle

Hey Parents! This year RSMS has an awesome opportunity to offer many of our students...summer school! We have roughly 20 spots remaining in EACH grade level. Summer school runs August 2-13 from 8:00-12:00 each day. Students will spend half the time focusing on reading and half the time focusing on math. Transportation is provided from Story City to Roland and the shuttle bus will leave the elementary at 7:45 each morning to bring students to RSMS and deliver them back to Story City by 12:15. If you live in Roland you will need to provide your own transportation to RSMS. There is no charge for summer school this year. Please email Sarah Jensen at sjensen@roland-story.k12.ia.us or call the office ASAP to confirm attendance. Thanks and we look forward to the summer school opportunity for our students!

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, 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. 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 a dedicated 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.
