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.
