STUDENT ARRIVAL AND ATTENDANCE
DROP-OFF OR PICK-UP OF STUDENTS
Parents dropping off or picking up students must enter Ransom Middle School through the East Gate and exit through our center driveway (TRAFFIC IS ONE WAY). The Drop-off and Pick-up area is in the front of the school across from the Teachers' Parking Lot.
The west gate is reserved for school buses only.
Each absence must be explained. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing notification within three (3) days of the student’s return to school, or the absence will result in an unexcused absence. Notification of a student’s absence should be completed on an Absence Verification Form that is available on the District’s website. The Absence Verification Form includes the student’s name, the date(s) the student was absent, the reason for the absence, and parent’s/guardian’s legal name.
SPECIAL CHECK OUT INSTRUCTIONS
If your child requires special check-out instructions, please notify the main office in writing on "Orientation Day" or by the first week of school.
Any student who needs to check out during the school day must be checked out by a parent or designated adult (the individual's name and telephone number must be on file at RMS).
There will be no check-outs taken over the phone. There will also be no check-outs after 3:30 PM. We are required to see a photo I.D. before a student can be checked out.
