General Information & Expectations

  • ATTENDANCE Students are expected to attend school regularly and on time. Classes begin at 9:30. To be prepared and in class, students should arrive at school by 9:20. Appointments during the school day require a note or phone call from the parent/guardian requesting early release permission.  Students turn notes into the Attendance Office before school.  We ask that parents come in with ID to the Attendance Window to sign their student out for any appointment.


  • CLOSED CAMPUS Students may not leave the school grounds during school hours or upon unloading from the morning bus or reaching campus.  


  • SCHOOL BUS PROCEDURES In order to promote safety and efficiency, the school district has set specific regulations for riding the school bus.  The driver is the official in charge and that control is absolute.  The administration of this school will support the driver without reservation.  Violation of bus rules, displays of disrespect toward the driver, other adults, or fellow students will cause loss of bus riding privileges. Students that need to ride a bus other than the one assigned to them, or get off at a bus stop other than their own, must have written permission from their parent/guardian. Students will submit the parent note to the main office.  Phone permission will not be accepted


  • LOCKERS Each student will be assigned a locker and issued a combination. Combinations should not be given to anyone other than the occupant of the locker.  Lockers are not to be shared. If any locker problem evolves, notify the office immediately.  Student lockers are the property of the school and are subject to search.  


  • ELECTRONICS Student cell phones and other electronic devices are expected to be off and away during the school day. When students enter the doors to school, devices should be turned off and put away. When the dismissal bell rings at 4:05, students are allowed to access their electronics (Door to Bell Expectation).


  • BACKPACKS Due to limited space and to eliminate safety hazards, backpacks MUST be stored in student lockers.


  • LUNCHES Students will have a 30 minute lunch period every day. RCMS has three lunch periods. Parents can log on to LINQ Connect to set up low balance alerts or deposit money into your student’s account. Lunch money can also be accepted in the cafeteria, not the main office, between 9:00 a.m. - 9:25 a.m. 


  • CLASS FEES Most elective courses require a class fee. Class Fees can be paid to the Book Keeper with cash, debit/credit or checks made out to RCMS. Families participating in the Free and reduced lunch program are eligible for a waiver for all class fees.


  • STUDENT MEDICATIONS Students may not take any prescription or nonprescription medication while at school without appropriate documentation. Medication (prescription or over-the-counter) that is needed for your child to remain in school must come in a fully labeled original container and you must fill out and sign the medication assistance form available in the office or on our website under the Parents tab.  Only small containers can be kept @ school due to limited space. All medications will be stored in the office in a locked cabinet. Medications may not be carried by students unless a physician gives permission to self-medicate with an inhaler.
