Parent Survey

Parents we need your help.  Every year at this time we ask that parents fill out the parent survey.  This information is very helpful.  In the past we have not had as many respondents as we would have liked.  We would greatly appreciate your taking about ten minutes to fill out the survey.  You can also find the link to the survey on the Escambia County School District web page right next to the green “community” button.


Please take the time to complete this Parent Survey .

Student Arrival and Attendance Policies


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.


ALL absences must be called in each day that a student is absent (937-2220 ext. 225).

When the student returns to school, he/she MUST bring a note from either a parent or doctor. It is the responsibility of the student to make up all work that has been missed.

Any student who is tardy for school MUST be checked in by a parent. Absences related to illness or injury of the student that exceed five (5) consecutive days or a total of ten (10) days requires a doctor's note.


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.

Telephone and Cell Phone Policy

There is a telephone in the Guidance Office that students may use for EMERGENCIES only.

If your student needs to make arrangements to go home with another student, these arrangements must be made before arriving at school.

NO telephone messages will be recorded and forwarded to the students after 3:30.

Teachers can be reached by email. The email addresses are located on the school web site (Faculty Page).


Students may have cell phones; however, ALL CELL PHONES MUST BE TURNED OFF AND OUT OF SIGHT.

Violations of this policy could result in administration action being taken, to include confiscation of the student's cell phone.

Please contact the school for further information.                                  

Student Dress Code

Each student is given his or her own copy of the Escambia County School District Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.
