--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Carpool Safety

For the safety of the students, please utilize the carpool side of parking lot (behind the brick River Trail sign) for student drop off and pick up. The bus lane is reserved for the school busses which have the right of way.



Beginning Monday, August 13, 2018, RTMS will no longer be accepting cash|checks for PE Uniforms, lockers, field trips, club dues, fines, etc. All payments will be made through Online School Payments. OSP is a simple, safe, secure and convenient way for parents to make online payments, which means students no longer need to carry cash|checks into school.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Student Drop Off

Please remember that student drop off begins at 8:15 AM. If you drive your child to school, he/she may not enter the building until 8:15 unless he/she has a specific pass from a teacher to meet with him/her at an earlier time. We do not have staff available before 8:15 am to supervise students, and it is not safe for them to be at school unsupervised.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Volunteer Registration

        The RTMS faculty and staff are very appreciative of all of our involved parents and volunteers.  Please be aware that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District must complete an application every two years, even if a person has completed an application in the past.   All volunteers must renew for the 2018-2020 school years. The registration process can be found on the FCSD District Website under Community / Partners and Volunteers.  All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing.  Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process.  It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on government issued ID.  Thank you for volunteering with our school.
