  • Device Maintenance:

    Please follow the recommended set of steps to ensure your child's device is ready for the first day of school 


    (1) Have your child fully power their laptop. (2) Bring the computer and student to an FCS school, i.e., Abbotts Hill, Ocee, Findley Oaks, Chattahoochee, River Trail, etc.,  and get close enough to the building to pick up the FCS-WIFI signal. (3) Once positioned close enough to pick up the wireless signal, power up the laptop, and restart. The update may take up to 20 minutes.(4) Repeat often during remote learning to keep your FCS laptop updated.

Great FCS Stories

  • Student Drop Off

    Please remember that student drop off begins at 8:15 AM. If you drive your child to school, he/she may not enter the building until 8:15 unless he/she has a specific pass from a teacher to meet with him/her at an earlier time. We do not have staff available before 8:15 am to supervise students, and it is not safe for them to be at school unsupervised.

  • PTO Membership Drive

    The middle school years are impactful for students.  At RTMS, you can expect an environment that is safe, respectful, and enriching, in order for each student to grow academically, emotionally, and socially.   Middle school is also a time for parents to continue their involvement, so I encourage you to become active with the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  Membership and volunteer opportunities are located at  https://rivertrailpto.com/membership/.

    Thank you for choosing River Trail Middle School.  We appreciate your endless trust and support as we help your child to reach their highest potential.
