Important School Security Measures

Thank you for your close attention to the following reminders to keep RPS safe.

  • All RPS campuses are closed to the public during school hours. Please do not use RPS grounds as a place to walk, a way to cut through, or for any other reason.
  • All visitors must have an appointment with a staff member or a purpose for their visit.
  • Once granted access to the building, please do not hold the door open for a different guest entering the building.
School Bus Routes and Stops

We have been receiving a large number of questions and requests about student bus routes and stops and are trying to respond as quickly as possible. If you have any questions or requests, please utilize the Transportation Inquiry Form in order to guarantee we can respond to your request. Voicemails and emails sent directly to an individual can get lost in the large amounts of communication we receive at the start of the school year. Thank you!
