With être, rentré gets a letter S in the plural sentence, but not with avoir. Is it a rule?
This relates to:Rentrer can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning -
Yes, this is a rule. With être the participle is accorded in gender and number to the subject.
Alex est rentré tard.

Bonjour Nataly !
To complete Chris's answer, here's a link to our lesson related to the agreement of the past participle (here rentré) with auxiliary être.
Note that in some specific cases, you might also agree with the auxiliary avoir, as explained in that more advanced lesson :)
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !
