Ramsey Middle School is an innovative, academically challenging environment that empowers each learner to explore possibilities, act with integrity, and create positive change within one's community and the world.
Dear Ramsey Community,
I want to communicate our needs for making adjustments to our 1:1 technology program at Ramsey. I am working closely with our Technology Council, District IT Department and our staff on the best most sustainable model for Ramsey and our students. Technology is one of the founding cornerstones of Ramsey. We want to sustain our technology for student learning. We are finding that travelling back and forth with students is causing some more frequent damage to the iPads. We are not losing the 1:1 model at Ramsey, however we are moving to a 1:1 cart model. Students will have access to iPads on a daily basis at school.

Our February 28 Community Voices: “What should be the name of our school?” event is fast approaching. Our list of possible new names for Ramsey Middle School has been reduced to five finalists, which will be discussed that evening. For more information, see the event invitation.

Principal Rathke has been discussing the dress code with students, staff, and other interested parties. If you’d like to give feedback on the current student dress code, please take the dress code survey.
Student safety is a priority at Ramsey. It is vital that we set an appropriate entrance and exit plan for our students, to be followed by all Ramsey families. At the start and end of the school day, there is to be no student drop-off or pick-up in the 50th street parking lot (door 1). Door 1 is for staff and visitors only. The only times a student should use door 1 are:
Students being dropped off at the start of the school day, or picked up at the end of the school day, should use door 7, on 49th Street. Students should not be dropped off or picked up on Nicollet Avenue; this is bus only.
Students arriving and departing by bus should use door 2, the school's main entrance.
Bikers and walkers may enter and exit through either door 7 (49th Street) or door 2 (Nicollet Avenue).
If you are visiting Ramsey during the school day, you may park in the 50th Street lot, buzz in through door 1, go to the office, sign in, and get visitor's badge.
Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe at Ramsey!
Currently, 343 Ramsey students have overdue books. Notices have been emailed to students, but students can also look online at any time to see what books they have out. To check on overdue books:
MPS is committed to being a safe haven for everyone. We know that recent current events have raised questions for some immigrant and refugee families. We want to lend support wherever possible.
