RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use

#WEareRH - Friday, 2/2/18

Special Parent Workshop - Stakeholder night, February 13th

Advisement for 2nd semester will cover a number of sensitive topics which include: bullying, self-injury, suicide prevention/awareness, and alcohol/drug awareness. We feel that these are important topics to discuss with our students in order to raise awareness and educate them about the topics as a whole. The lessons will provide key information about what to do if they're experiencing said issue, who to talk to, and also to let students know that they aren’t alone. Our goal is to break the common misconception that we aren't supposed to talk about these things. These issues are at an all-time high in today's youth, and we want to be proactive in educating our students here at RHHS about them.

These advisement lessons will simply be PowerPoint presentations on each subject that include any combination of facts, misconceptions, discussion starters, informational videos, and processes/procedures that are taken for each type of situation.

We invite you to Stakeholder night, Tuesday February 13th at 6pm. Counselors will be presenting to you some of the information that we are going to go over in these advisement lessons. It is important to us that parents are aware of what we will be covering with the students. We will have a few of our PowerPoint presentations to share with parents and also want it to serve as a night for you all to ask questions that you may have. An important piece of Stakeholder night is also to share with you the specific procedures and protocol that we follow pertaining to each situation. For example- what we do when bullying is reported, what we do when self-harm is reported, etc. We will also provide parents with useful resources that aid when faced with any of these situations.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Georgia Parent Survey

Each year, the State of Georgia gives schools the opportunity to have all stakeholders provide feedback about their schools. Students, school personnel, and parents are provided survey links to share their feedback. School personnel and students will complete their surveys during January and February. During this same time, we would also like to get as many parents to complete the survey as possible.


Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, please come to the west office, and we will gladly provide you the computer and internet access to complete this. 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. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
