For urgent safety issues, RSM administrators/staff may blow whistles during outdoor activities and/or passing periods. If the whistles are blown, ALL students will immediately stop and sit where they are until further instructions are given. Any failure to do so will result in disciplinary action. Whistle Drill! What is that? Fire/Earthquake/Disaster: When it is safe to do so, all students will quickly and calmly head to the main field inside the track and report to their homeroom teacher.
Lockdown/Lockout: All students will IMMEDIATELY head into the NEAREST door and remain absolutely quiet in the locked area until the all-clear is given. FIRE AND LOCKDOWN SITUATIONS DURING PASSING/SNACK/LUNCH Welcome to RSM!
