School Starts on Monday, August 13th! The school day is from 8:30-3:30 and the building opens at 7:50 each day.
Meeting Place After School:
One other suggestion for those new to Rice, please make a plan of where to meet after school if you are picking up your child. We often have lost parents and want to ensure they are found quickly! We will release our 6th grade students a bit earlier on the first day of school, but each day after that all students are released at the same time (3:30) and they are able to leave out any door (we don't have a release like elementary schools). The more prepared you are as far as a meeting place, the less stressed you will be after school on the first few days!
The traffic around Rice Middle School can be very frustrating since we have the majority of our students being picked up or walking home. Please remember to always be patient around the school, we want to ensure our students safety is the priority. We have posted the Traffic Plan and some Traffic Tips on our website, please review this prior to the start of the school year. Thanks in advance for your help and support. You can always report unsafe driving to the Plano Police.
We look forward to a great school year!
