School Building Guidelines



Any accident occurring in the school building, on the school grounds, at practice sessions, or at any school function must be reported immediately to the person in charge and to the office.

A.S.B. Cards

Associated student body cards (ASB) are provided to the students free of charge. They are beneficial to the students in the following ways:
* Provide student identification as a member of the Reeves Middle School student body
* Allow for discounted admission to high school athletic events

Bicycles, Skateboards, In-line Skates

There is a bike rack for student use in the area in front of the school. Bikes should be locked in this area only. Students are not allowed in the bike rack area during the school day. The use of skateboards, in-line skates, and related items are not permitted on school grounds. This is an Olympia School District policy.


Electronic Policy

No personal electronics are allowed during school hours in our building.  Please see this pdf for more information:  RMS Electronic Policy


Extended Absence Form

This form must be completed for all planned absences of 3 or more days: RMS Extended Absence Form


Gum and Food

Chewing gum during class time is allowed at the discretion of the individual teachers. All food items are to be consumed in the school cafeteria. Water bottles are accepted in the classroom at the discretion of the teacher or for individual health needs.


The school will provide lockers for students' use. Items left in the lockers are the responsibility of the students. Should an item of value need to be brought to school, arrangements should be made to leave it with a staff member. A combination lock is built into each locker. It is the student's responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of his/her locker combination. A student choosing to use a locker is responsible for its maintenance and cleanliness. Lockers are intended for the storage of required school supplies, coats, and lunches. Lockers and locks will be provided in the PE locker rooms. Students are charged for the replacement cost of a lock should it become damaged or lost.

Lost and Found

A lost and found area is maintained in the cafeteria. Once a month unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity. It is suggested that students' clothing be labeled. If an item is lost, the student should retrace his/her steps, check with teachers or friends and check the lost and found. Parents are also encouraged to contact the school (596-3400 ) if an item is missing.

Personal Property

Students are discouraged from bringing items of personal value not related to their lessons. The school is not responsible for personal items that students bring to school. As with other valuables, students are solely responsible for their personal possessions. They are not to interfere with the learning environment. Should an item of value need to be brought to school, arrangements should be made with a staff.

Student Council

The student council is our students' governing body. Each first period class is represented on the council. The primary responsibilities are to establish the ASB budget, approve the expenditure of funds, promote and support improvements to the campus and school climate, and support community service activities.

Telephone Use

The office phone is intended for business use and emergencies. Students may use the office phone before or after school. If a need to use the phone arises during the day, the student should contact the classroom teacher if it is related to class or contact an administrator or counselor for other requests. Phones are located in all classrooms. After extra curricular activities, students may obtain access to coaches' phones to arrange transportation or contact their parents.

All visitors must follow our new district protocol.  This can be found at this website:
