    Homecoming 2019

    A few reminders about hallway decorations, pep rally, and the homecoming dance: 

    ·       Starting after school on 9/19/19, lockers in several hallways will be inaccessible due to hallway decorating. These lockers will be inaccessible through lunch on 9/20/19. To be safe, please take anything you might need from your locker with you at the end of the day 

    ·       Face and body painting must be done before school outside of the building. No painting is allowed inside the school. Also, when it comes to face and body paint, keep your hands to yourself, there is no “tagging” of other students permitted

    ·       The pep rally will be outside in the stadium. Seniors will get to sit and stand on the field in coned off sections and on portable bleachers, sophomores will sit on the far end of the home bleachers closest to the scoreboard, juniors will sit in the middle section, and freshmen will sit in the section closest to the school building. SGA will label these sections

    ·      For Friday’s game, please remember, no backpacks are allowed into the game. You will not be permitted into the game if you have a backpack

    ·     The dance starts at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, 9/21/19 and ends at 11:00 p.m. Please tell your rides to be at the school prior to 11:00 p.m. to pick you up

    ·     To enter the dance, you must have your ticket and school ID 

    ·      Reminder, all bags will be searched when you enter the dance

    ·      No heels are allowed on the gym floor, there will be a coat and shoe check available

    ·      There is no re-entry once you leave the dance. You cannot go to your car to get something and come back in, so please plan accordingly

    Finally, as always, the use of drugs or alcohol before, or during the dance will not be tolerated. If any student chooses to attend the dance under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, or brings drugs and/or alcohol with them to the event, the MCPS Code of Conduct will be followed.

    Student Agenda Book (2019-2020 Information, policies, and regulations) 

    Changes to information contained in the RMHS Student Handbook (Spin Book page 8). The spirit of this change is to ensure students do not have an overwhelming number of assessments on any given day. Please note the revised department assessment days outlined below, effective immediately:

    Monday: Social Studies, World Languages

    Tuesday: English/ESOL, Science/Tech Ed

    Wednesday: Math, Social Studies

    Thursday: World Languages, English/ESOL

    Friday: Science/Tech Ed, Math

    *Physical Education (PE) and the Arts may give an assessment on any day of the week.


    With respect to this policy, an assessment is a major formative or summative assessment covering multiple skills or standards, or units/chapters. Exit cards and other checking-for-understanding assessments are not considered major formative and summative assessments. Major assessments may fall under the formative, summative, or test/quiz grade book categories. A major assessment may be, but is not limited to, an exam, test, quiz, or project.  If a teacher or PLC decides to delay an assessment based on student preparedness, data, or other factors, the assessment must be moved to the next available department day. If unexpected or external factors beyond a teacher’s control (weather, holiday) delay a teacher or PLC’s assessment, the teacher(s) will work collaboratively with their class(es) to determine the next most appropriate day to administer the assessment.
