5.Students of Rufus King International High School: The IB mission is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, caring students who help to create a better and more peaceful world. To that end, let’s all do our part to show respect for all and follow the school policy for students participating in after school activities. Students must be in their after school activity by 3:00pm. School safety will sweep the building and you may be asked to leave the building if you are found in the hallways. Please be at your activity at 3:00 promptly. Also, if you think there is someone in our building who doesn’t belong here, you have a responsibility to tell someone right away. Together we can continue to make Rufus King a safe and fun place to learn.
