Papillion-La Vista School District

Welcome to the Rumsey Station Elementary Website!

Great learning opportunities are happening at our school every day!
Sarpy County Hosting Mock Mass Shooting Exercise Drill on May 28 
On Thursday, May 28, 2015 the Papillion-La Vista School District along with the Sarpy County law enforcement agencies,  all other Sarpy County school districts, fire and rescue, emergency management, Sarpy/Cass Health department and numerous other agencies are partnering together to conduct a mass school shooting exercise drill.  This drill, known as Operation First Bell, will test the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) recently developed and implemented throughout Sarpy County. This mass exercise will include over 200 role players, victims transported to the hospitals and a complete school evacuation and reunification. The entire exercise will take place at Papillion-La Vista South High School. It is important for parents and community members to be aware this is only a drill.
       Sarpy County is the first and only county in Nebraska to implement the SRP.  This mass exercise will be one of a kind in testing a county-wide response.  Student safety is a top priority and participating in an exercise such as this allows us to be certain we are prepared if anything ever happens.  If you have any questions, please contact Annette Eyman at 402-537-6200.

Box Tops


We had a great Box Tops 4 Education collection!  We collected a total of 9,108 box tops, which means that we raised $910 for Rumsey Station.  Last year for the month of October, we collected 10,208.  Hats off to Mr. Johnson’s classroom – they had the highest total with 1,216.  The highest monthly classroom collection in Rumsey Station history is 1,504 (Mr. Johnson, Oct 2012).  For his first place win this year, Mr. Johnson will receive a $20 gift card to the store of his choice and his students will all receive a prize.  Coming in second with another very high total was Mrs. Denos and her students.  They collected 1,001.  And third place goes to Ms. Vaughan with a total of 614.  Those classrooms will also receive prizes.  Finally, honorable mention goes to all those classrooms with collections of 500 or more – Mr. Schuetz, Ms. Christen, Mrs. Hall, Ms. Hunt, and Mrs. Schwartz.  The students in each of those classrooms will receive prizes as well.  Keep it up!
