Career Day Speakers Needed
We will be hosting our annual RMHS Career Day on Friday, February 28, 2020 (half day). Career Day is an opportunity for members of our professional community to share their experiences, interests, and lessons with our students as they look to future careers and opportunities. Guest presenters will have 20 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions and answers per class for approximately 5 classes. The event time will be 7:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We are also offering an opportunity for presenters to stay and exhibit until noon at the Career Day Exposition, which will take place on Main Street.

This is a friendly reminder that students should not be parking in the assigned numbered parking spaces in either parking lot. These spaces are reserved for staff.

Vehicles are subject to tow at owner's expensive if in violation of the rules listed above. Parking permit applications for second semester are currently under review. Parents will receive an email notifying them if a student has been approved for second semester.

2019-2020 Student Policies Advocacy at Richard Montgomery
Check out this document to see how students, parents, and staff all work together to advocate for the needs of our students.
Student Agenda Book (2019-2020 Information, policies, and regulations). *Please note that Spin Books were published prior to our phone number changes. So the numbers listed in the Spin Book are incorrect. New numbers are listed above and in the staff directly. 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.
