Home Leave Information

Students are expected to make their own arrangements to travel home for home leaves and vacations. Students wishing to ride school transportation should make arrangements at the business office at least three days prior to the leave day. Rio provides bus transportation to Manteca, and Sacramento (and points en route) on home leaves and vacations at a moderate cost to cover expenses. See Transportation Schedule below for drop off locations and times. Student-drivers of carpools and occupants all must have written parental permission.

All leaves and vacations begin at 12:00 pm on the designated days unless otherwise indicated. Rio buses and vans will leave at 12:00 pm from the cafeteria parking lot. Dorms will close at 3:00 P.M. on leave days and will re-open at 3:00 P.M. Sunday or the day the leave ends. Students who are not picked up before the dorm closes or are dropped off before the dorm opens again will be charged a $10.00/hour supervision fee. Students should return to the dorms by lights out on the day the leave ends. If students need to be picked up after 8:30 P.M. each student will be charged $10.00 for transportation.

In order to visit the home of a student’s roommate, friend or family member, the following must be complete:

– A written invitation from the host family on file.*

– Written permission from the visiting students’ parents for the specific occasion.*

*Phone calls will not be accepted.
