    Join the RUSD PTA and Help Enhance the School Experience
    The RUSD Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a membership-based organization that combines the efforts of parent volunteers, teachers and administrators to enhance the school experience for our children.  
    The PTA coordinates parent volunteers and sponsors many events and activities throughout the year - there are literally hundreds of opportunities, big and small, to get involved. It is our hope that every family in the district will participate in PTA, both as members and volunteers!
    Please use the checklist below to help get your family off to a great start this school year: 
    1. Sign up for PTA Membership, yearbook, birthday books, spirit wear, etc. - all in one place online:
    One and Done PTA Membership and Shopping  
    2.  Check the District Calendar regularly for upcoming events.
    Message from Our Nurse
    Dear RUSD Parents,

    To ensure safe and accurate administration of medication to students during school hours and in compliance with California Education Code Section 49423, all medication, including over the counter medication, must have authorization by you AND your child's health care provider prior to being administered at school. These forms are available in the school office and on the RUSD website. The following must be provided if medication is taken during the school day:
    • An Authorization to Administer Medication form (available here under "Other School Health Issues") is required for ALL prescribed and over the counter medications and must be completed by both the legal parent/guardian and the treating physician BEFORE any medication can be administered. A new Authorization to Administer Medication form must be completed at the beginning of every school year and whenever a change occurs.
    • Medication must be delivered to school by the parent/guardian in the original container, clearly labeled with your student's name. Prescribed medication must contain the original pharmacy label with the student name, physician name, name of medication, instructions, and expiration date. Medication will NOT be accepted in unlabeled containers or baggies.
    • Medication will be stored in the Health Office unless the health care provider and parent authorize the student to carry and self-administer medication without assistance or supervision as specified in Ed Code Section 49423. If medication is to be carried and self-administered by the student, the parent/guardian, student, and health care provider must sign the Authorization to Carry Emergency Medications section of the Authorization to Administer Medication form-students may NOT carry over the counter medication in backpacks without this portion of the Authorization form completed and a copy filed in the school office and/or carried along with the medication. Consequences for carrying unauthorized medications can include suspension.
    • Medication must be picked up by the parent/guardian or other authorized adult during the last week of the school year. Any medication left at school at the end of the school year will be discarded.

    Thank you for your cooperation in maintaining a safe environment for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse or contact the school office.
    The Authorization to Administer Medication form is available here under "Other School Health Issues".
