Dear Truman Families,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I hope you enjoyed a relaxing summer filled with wonderful memories. Our staff has been working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. We look forward to seeing our returning students and are excited to meet our newest Bulldogs.

At Truman Elementary, we believe that each child has the potential to succeed, and we invite you to partner with us in helping your child reach their full potential. Together, in partnership with family and community members, we’ll engage students in meaningful, active learning and empower them to do and be their best. 

We’d like to invite you to join us at Open House! Due to COVID-19, things will look a little different. In an effort to reduce risk, please do the following: 

Attend during your scheduled time. Classroom teachers will reach out via email or phone to make your appointment for August 18 or 19. 
Minimize the number of people in attendance.
Follow the designated flow of traffic.
Practice social distancing while in the building

Wear a face covering.

Please make your way to the classroom first for your scheduled appointment. You can drop off all school supplies at this time. Following your visit with the teacher, head to the gym to gather important information from our nurse, transportation department, food services, and PTO. If you have not completed the online registration process, please be prepared to complete the paperwork during Open House. If you fall in a high-risk category and would like to request an appointment, outside the designated evenings for Open House, please request this when scheduling an appointment with your classroom teacher.  

Please note, school pictures have been scheduled for Thursday, September 17. 

Finally, I would encourage you to visit the district webpage www.Rolla31.org/Return_To_Learn to read Rolla Public Schools re-entry plan. Please note, due to COVID-19, some items found in the Truman Student Handbook (e.g. arrival and dismissal, cafeteria procedures, and attendance incentives) have been modified for the 2020-2021 school year. You’ll find those details in the Truman 20-21 Handbook Addendum, found on our website. After you’ve read RPS’s re-entry plan and our addendum, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns at 573.458.0180. 

We look forward to seeing you and your child soon. I’m confident we will have a phenomenal year filled with learning, collaboration, and fun!
