Thanksgiving To Go

Early College of Macomb

RHS sophomores are invited to apply to the Early College of Macomb. Early College sent information home to all 10th grade families in early November. This is a program for highly motivated students to attend RHS and Macomb Community College during 11th and 12th grades, and then attend MCC their 13th year. Interested students and families should plan on attending one of Early College's informational programs at MCC on December 6th at Center Campus or December 7th at South Campus. Information about the program, eligibility requirements, and the application process will be shared at these meetings. Additional information about the Early College of Macomb program can be found in their brochure and on the Early College website. The application is online through the Early College website. The application window is open December 12, 2022-January 13, 2023.

Holiday Giving

We are blessed to live in such a wonderful and giving community. Each year, right around the start of the holidays, we are contacted by generous individuals, businesses, and families about holiday donations. If you would like to use Romeo High School to donate to Romeo families in need, we ask that you do so with gift cards. This will allow us to properly disperse the donations and do so in an anonymous manner. Denominations of $20 is ideal, but of course we're happy with any amount.

Additionally, many donors want to donate, but want the donations going towards specific items (toys, clothes, food, etc.) or not being able to be used for alcohol/tobacco. If this is important to you, here are some suggestions:

  • Be intentional where you get your gift cards from. As an example, Kohl's is an option if you want the donation going towards clothes or toys.
  • Sheena's will punch a hole in a Sheena's card that will indicate the card cannot be used on alcohol or tobacco. You must ask them for this.
  • Meijer has "food only" gift cards available at the customer service desk.

Message from the District Nurse

With the weather changing, parents have been asking for guidance regarding when to keep kids home from school and for how long. Here is some information for you all:

Sickness Reminders:

Cold, stomach bug and flu season is upon us. Here are a few reminders about when to keep your student home to rest:

  • Fever greater than 100, without the help of fever reducing medications

  • Vomiting (even if it happened once)

  • Diarrhea

  • Chills

  • General malaise or feelings of fatigue, discomfort, weakness or muscle aches

  • Frequent congested (wet) or croupy cough

  • If your student has a confirmed case of an illness from the Doctor (Strep, Influenza, Covid, etc.) please let the office know when you report their absence.

Students may return to school if:

  • Fever free for 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing medication

  • Vomiting free for 24 hours

  • Symptoms have resolved or otherwise directed by a doctor

Student Carry Medications:

Students who carry medications on them at school (motrin, epi-pen, tylenol) MUST have a doctor order on file with the Med Office. This order must be signed by the doctor and parent. These can be found on the RCS website.

–For those students that do have orders on file and self-carry medications, please remember that there is a special responsibility that goes along with carrying medication. This is a great time to have students who self-carry communicate with their teachers/coach/bus driver and show them where their medication is kept, especially if it were to ever possibly be needed in an emergency situation. Please remind your student their medication is to only be taken by YOU, the student, and not shared with others for any reason.
