Rawson After School Pick Up

Middle school students are not allowed on Rawson property prior to 4:00 pm on normal school days. This includes the playground, basketball courts and parking lots. The only exception will be for families who have filled out the online form to allow their middle school student to pick up a sibling after school. You may fill out the online form by CLICKING HERE. Students who pick up their sibling must have their middle school ID available.
