The TidePod, which was started in early 2019, is currently in its sixth season. Graphic designed by Valerie Wang.

On Friday, January 13th, a lockdown took place at RM due to the report of a person with a gun on school property. Students were in lockdown, and then shelter-in-place from the end of fifth period until dismissal. We spoke with RM students and staff about their reactions to the situation and RM’s response.
