In order to promote a safe and non distracting learning environment, Royal High School will be enforcing our Dress Code. Students are asked to wear clothing that is appropriate for the school or work setting and should be appropriate, modest in nature and non distracting to the learning environment (BP/AR 5132).
● State law requires that footwear be worn at all times.
● Students must wear an appropriate shirt at all times. Including during sports practices. Examples of inappropriate shirts are: sleeveless undershirts, tube-tops, see-through tops, backless tops, strapless tops, or low-cut or stomach baring (midriff) tops, and muscle shirts.
● Clothing that advertises or promotes alcohol, drugs, violence, or other inappropriate activity is not acceptable.
● Undergarments of any kind should not be visible.
● Shorts and skirts are to be at fingertip length.
Violation of the Student Dress Code will result in requiring the student to change to more appropriate attire (physical education clothes or school spiritwear). Additional school consequences will be given to repeat offenders.

CAL GRANT PROGRAM (11th and 12th Grade Families)
The Cal Grant program is operated through the California Student Aid Commission. This statewide program provides cash assistance for eligible students attending college in California. Cal Grant awards range from $5,000 to $12,000 and are for students who are pursuing an undergraduate degree or vocational or career training. Cal Grants do not have to be repaid. In order to qualify for consideration, students must have at least a 2.0 GPA and meet other eligibility requirements. For more Cal Grant information, click here. California Education Code now requires public schools to submit all 11th and 12th grade student GPAs each year (this includes adult aged 12th grade students). Families have a choice as to whether or not their individual students are included, and the law requires that schools must provide families an opportunity to opt-out of this filing. (California Education Code section 69432.9) If you choose to opt your student out, you must complete the form emailed this weekend and return it to the RHS Counseling Office by Sept. 30th. Please be advised, however, that students who opt-out may not be able to qualify for free Cal Grant monies for college from the State of California. For questions for the opt-out, please contact Aaron Dobson, Assistant Principal. For any other Cal Grant questions, please contact your student's counselor or Brittany Hong in our College and Career Center.

FOOD DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
Attention Parents and Students:
Please be aware that food deliveries from outside vendors such as Door Dash, Uber Eats and Grub Hub will not be allowed to deliver food to the Royal campus unless it is during our scheduled lunch time. Students may not leave class to receive food deliveries. Food may only be delivered to the front office and not delivered over the fence or through the gates. The office will not accept fountain drinks or any drink that does not have a sealed lid. The student's name must be clearly labeled on the food item. Failure to follow these guidelines will jeopardize any food delivery services at Royal High School.
ST. ROSE OF LIMA PARKING LOT
Attention Parents and Students: Please do not use the St. Rose of Lima Parking Lot to drop off and pick up your students. They have asked us to relay that their parking lot has had very heavy traffic and their parents can't get in to pick up their students from their own school. You can meet your students off of Arcane in the back of the school, on Hudspeth to the East of the school, or in either parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
THIS WEEK: Clark University
Click here for Admissions Info
Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info
Acceptance Rate: 56%
DETAILS: Clark University’s motto is “Challenge Convention, Change Our World,” an idea that students and faculty alike at this small university take to heart. “All aspects of [the school], from the dining hall menus to the syllabi in literally every department, focus on how students can make the world a better place whether it be social, environmental, geopolitical, economic, medical, or anything in between.” Therefore, it’s not too surprising that undergrads report that they are encouraged to “actively [connect] their academics to something bigger and more meaningful.” Moreover, they’re also quick to note that Clark is both “a small liberal arts college [and] a research university,” an incredible combination that affords many academic opportunities. Clarkies are privy to “phenomenal” professors who “care deeply about each and every student.” They push students students to “engage in discourse that may seem uncomfortable or foreign,” and they are “very willing to help students outside of class.” As one amazed undergrad elaborates, “I can’t tell you the number of times professors that I maybe only had one time went above and beyond for me—writing recommendations, forwarding me calls for conference abstracts, helping me find research opportunities, and more.” All in all, Clark is a “liberal arts school that challenges academic conventions and its own inner-workings to constantly give its students chances to grow.”
Clark Student Perspective: “People don't fit into boxes here. Someone could be a star athlete and a great actor majoring in biology and English. I love that about Clark; everyone is so uniquely them, but also very down-to-earth and not caught up in themselves all the time.”
