  5. Past Due Tuition: The Parent understands that the student is being enrolled for the entire school year and that the tuition and fees for the year is the cost of the enrollment procedure, it is not the cost of services rendered within the school year.

If payment of tuition is not made by a family according to one of the above listed payment plans or if the parents do not maintain a harmonious relationship with the school, the staff, and the fellow parents of RMS, RMS has the right to refuse to admit that child(ren) to class, to deny admission to that child(ren), or to permanently remove the child(ren) from the school’s roster. If a family is in arrears, RMS has the right to declare immediately due and payable both the arrears and any and all tuition and fees remaining due from the family for the full school year. RMS understands that special circumstances may occasionally arise and requests that such circumstances be brought to the attention of the administration.
  6.
