  • Rice Middle School Virtual Open House

    Since we are not able to welcome our families into the building for Open House, we have created a virtual Open House for your to visit. Each of your child's teachers have created a 5-10 minute video with information they feel is necessary for you to view. Please take a moment to take a virtual tour of Rice Middle School as well as visit your child's teachers virtually. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your child's teacher. 

    Thanks for your continued support as we all tread through the pandemic together. We hope you all are taking care and we hope to see you in person at another Open House event soon.
