ATTENDANCE: It is mandatory for parents & students to attend the Family Orientation Program. Students are expected to attend the Summer Engineering Institute on each scheduled day. Daily, prompt attendance is mandatory. Parent/Guardian must submit a written excuse to RMEP (prior to any absence when possible) each day a student is absent. After three (3) excused absences, the student will be dismissed from the program without a refund.

DECORUM: RMEP expects proper behavior during all facets of the program. The staff will make every effort to provide for the students’ comfort and safety and will monitor all periods of activity, including field trips. We look forward to having an orderly and enjoyable learning experience.

ATTIRE: Represent yourself at all times; this is not a sports camp or social club. Casual but neat dress is acceptable. No short shorts or bogus neck chains. Young ladies should wear tops and bottoms that adequately cover the body; young men are not allowed to wear net shirts or sleeveless T-shirts. Closed shoes (no sandals or heels) are a basic requirement for field trips. Above all, remember that the building and classrooms are air-conditioned and can get rather cool, so dress accordingly. The RMEP officials reserve the right to enforce the dress code accordingly.

EVALUATION: Students and parents will be asked to evaluate the entire program.
