If your family completed the district survey requesting a hot spot, and your student has not already done so, they may stop by the library to pick it up.


If you would like to complete the survey to receive a hot spot, you can find it here:

After School Tutoring is Back!

Does your student need help with specific classes or is in need of a quiet place to work? The library will be open after school from 2:40-3:40. Several RMHS teachers will be available to assist students during these times, by content area. See the schedule below.


***Remember, students are able to work in the library during these times, regardless of the content area. The schedule is dedicated to those teachers who are available to help by content area.***

Student Attendance Check-Out Policy

If your student needs to leave campus during the school day, we ask that you please call our attendance line to request a "Permit to Leave". We ask that whenever possible, a parent/guardian gives a one-hour notice before picking up the student or requesting they need to leave. Your student will receive a pass to leave approximately 10-15 minutes before the requested time.


Due to the security measures we have in place at RMHS, parents will have to check in at the Security Office before they can speak with someone in our attendance office. If you call ahead, you will not be required to enter the building to request your student's "Permit to Leave".


We appreciate your help with this.
