10/5/18 Principal’s Message


Hello Falcon Families - As we approach the one year mark of the Sonoma County fires, I want to share with you my plan of action on how we as a school site will address this day. When our Fire Club advisors asked the club members what date they felt marked the year passing, the group acknowledged that for them, it was  Oct. 9th, because that is when they were most impacted. As a result, Tues. Oct 9th will be our day of remembrance. I have heard from some families that they intend to keep their children home as they want to be together. I do understand that need. My objective for the day it to mark the passage of a year, by focussing on the resiliency of our community, the growth which has occurred and the positive aspect of paying it forward.


  • The day will begin with a morning announcement talking about the aforementioned topics.

  • Students will be informed that we are donating our surplus donations of backpacks and such to a school in Redding California.  As Middletown Middle School paid it forward to RVMS, we will pay it forward to another school in need. Together we are stronger.

  • We will have a double lunch period for our fire club, so they can be together.  There will be some snacks provide and an opportunity to share if they choose.

  • Our counsellors will be available throughout the day to speak to any students who may need assistance.

  • The rest of the day will be business-as-usual, because that is what our kids are telling us they want.


Fire Remembrance Events

As the one-year anniversary of the October 2017 wildfires approaches, remembrance events are being planned throughout Sonoma County. Below is a sampling.


I am proud of our Rincon Community and the strength and resiliency we have shown during this trying year.
