Make-Up Picture Day Reminder and Basketball Ticket Sales

Good evening Rossview community,


This is Jonathan Allen, your Rossview Middle School Athletic director with information about our basketball season and a quick reminder about picture day on November 2nd.


Picture day November 2 is for our virtual students, students absent from the first picture day or newly enrolled students. Any of these students may arrive to have their picture taken between the hours of 12p-6p November 2nd. They may enter the side door by the theatre, in the front of the school. There will be a sign marking the entrance. Please ensure they don’t wear green and they wear a mask into the building.


Also, with the first home basketball game on November 2, I wanted to share important information regarding the 2020-2021 season and the safety protocols.


First, there will be no ticket sales at the door  this year. All tickets will be pre-sold  through the GoFan platform for $6 and your ticket will be sent directly to your device. This purchase will be validated at the gate. Due to social distancing regulations, a limited number of tickets will be sold for each home game, so please keep this in mind when purchasing.The link to purchase tickets can be found on the ROMS webpage as well as the school Facebook page and the link below.




PLEASE NOTE: There is an option for both home/away tickets. Contact ROMS Bookeepting at 931-920-6150 ext. 1399 or ROMS Athletic Director Jonathan Allen at ext.1013 if any issues arise.


Also, CMCSS guidelines require every fan, coach, player, and official to have their temperature checked before entering the facility. For fans, temperature checks will take place at the gate upon entering. Please respect social distancing guidelines while waiting. Additionally, please do not attend if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID 19 or have been in recent contact with a known case of COVID 19.


CMCSS guidelines also require the use of facial coverings if within 6 feet of others or 15 feet if using a projected voice except in children under the age of 2. Please respect this policy while attending CMCSS sporting events. Social distancing guidelines of 6 feet must also be maintained, and fan seating will be clearly marked to ensure spectator safety. Hand sanitizer will also be available in several locations during events for spectator use.


We appreciate your help in keeping our school community safe while we cheer on our Hawks and look forward to seeing you at our first home game on November 2nd. JV will start at 4:30 followed by varsity girls and boys. Thank you, and if you need any assistance please email me at  [email protected].

Spring Semester Enrollment

To effectively prepare for the spring semester, we will be asking families to reflect on the first quarter and make a decision for each student for the second semester, which begins in January. We realize it may seem early to decide, but it is imperative to allow time for counselors and staff to create new schedules for students and teachers. Please know that consistency for students is a top priority. However, both virtual and traditional students could be impacted by changes in scheduling or teacher assignments.

After fall break, all parents/guardians will receive an electronic form asking them to select either a traditional or virtual learning setting for each of their children’s spring semester. Parents/guardians will need to complete this form by Monday, November 2. If your child has been learning virtually, please consider the following when making your decision:

· Has your student been able to regularly connect to the learning platforms and participate in Zoom sessions?
· Has your student been able to complete and submit the assigned work regularly?
· Has your student been able to master grade-level standards?
· Will a Learning Mentor be able to assist as expected, January-May?

The decision you will be making is a commitment for the entirety of the spring semester. If you would like to read more about virtual learning, please see the link below.

After reviewing the handbook, if you have questions or need additional information about virtual school please contact our main office. Please click here to learn more about the current health and safety guidelines in place for the traditional setting.

As we move into the second quarter, here a few reminders:
· All Students – Attendance Matters! Please turn in or email Angelica Rowe ([email protected]) parent notes or doctor’s notes when your student misses school. The expectations are the same for traditional and virtual students.
· Virtual Students – Teachers will be notified by the district when there are widespread connection issues. Your student is expected to fully participate to be counted present.
· Virtual Students – If your student has an issue with a computer that requires a work order, please complete the work order and drop the computer off at school for repair.

Thank you for your continued support of the students, faculty, and staff of Rossview Middle School.
