Georgia Parent Survey

We encourage our parents to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey. You may complete the survey using a personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, please come by RHPS, during school hours and our staff be happy to assist you.

Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey.

Reminders for parents

Electronic devices:

RHPS students are not allowed to have cell phones or any other communication device turned on during school hours unless by a doctor’s request. If it is determined by a licensed physician or surgeon to be essential for the student's health, that student will have a written plan including the doctor's verification for cell phone/communication device use which has been approved by the school administrator and which is on file in the school office.


If a student brings any of these devices to school, it will be powered off and placed in student’s bookbag until the end of the school day. See page 39 of BCS Student Handbook for more information.


Transportation changes:

If it is necessary to change your child's transportation, please send a note to your child's teacher the morning of the change. If it is after the school day has started, please call the front office to make changes.


Breakfast:

If you would like your child to enjoy breakfast at school, please be sure you have communicated this information to your child's teacher. If your child is a car rider, they should arrive by 8:45 to enjoy breakfast at school.


Medication:

Do you have a child that needs to have medication in school? Students are NOT permitted to carry medication to/from school or be in possession of any medication except under specific circumstances. Medication of any form (over the counter or prescription) must be registered. Medications must be delivered by parent or guardian to the school clinic and signed in with the nurse.

7 Mindsets - 100% Accountable

The 100% Accountable Mindset teaches the importance of being responsible for our own happiness and success. Being 100% Accountable means deciding not to be victims of the past and recognizing that the future is not predetermined, so our lives are what we choose in the present moment and each moment moving forward. In these lessons, we help students focus on recognizing our fears and excuses. This mindset is about the importance of breaking down barriers and taking responsibility for our thoughts and actions. It also allows us to free our minds and focus our energy on taking the critical steps toward our goals.

What is PBIS?

The Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports program is based upon a philosophy of recognizing positive contributions of students. Our goal is to help each child develop self-discipline. The home and school share the responsibility for developing good citizens. Parents, teachers, and students must work together to maintain a safe and positive learning environment.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR!

We are pleased to announce the U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended the federal program that offers free school meals for all students during the 2021-2022 school year.


The intent is to ensure children have continued access to free meals regardless of families’ ability to pay. BCS will serve a delicious and nutritious breakfast and lunch each day that school is in session. All of the meals meet nutrition standards established by USDA.


For children who want a little extra food at lunch, we will continue to offer various snacks and entrees’ at an affordable cost to parents.


School meals contribute to students’ well-being and readiness to learn! No application required. All students eat free!
