RMS Bathroom Policy Students are encouraged to maximize their time throughout the school day here at RMS. Therefore, it is encouraged that students use the restroom at designated times (between classes or as teacher designates). However, this is not always possible; therefore, students will have the opportunity to go to the restroom in class three times per semester. After the third restroom break, students will serve lunch detention as a result. In order to ensure this policy is followed, students will initial next to their name on the teacher’s restroom log when they must go to the restroom during class. This policy does not pertain to students that have a medical condition that would create a need to use the restroom more frequently.
If you refuse to follow the classroom rules and procedure there will be consequences.

Severe Infractions Any student who uses profanity, fights, threatens to harm others, treats others with cruelty, damages school property, property of the teacher, or others, or is disrespectful (as defined by the teacher) will be sent to the office office IMMEDIATELY.
