Rolling Hills Elementary Community Forum regarding upcoming Renovations and Move – 2019-2020 School Year

As you know, Rolling Hills Elementary will be undergoing a complete renovation during next school year (the 2019-2020 school year). We are excited about the transformation that will be happening at our school. During the renovation, Rolling Hills Elementary will be housed at the former Richboro Middle School (98 Upper Holland Road, Richboro, Pa 18954) for the 2019-2020 school year. Currently, Wrightstown Elementary is housed at this location during their current renovation. There has been a lot of planning to help us prepare for next school year and for the renovations.

During the evening of Tuesday, February 19th, parents are invited to a Community Forum at RHE. Specific information including the location and time are located below. Parents will have the opportunity to learn more about the upcoming renovation and move to the former Richboro Middle School. A presentation will be given by Doug Taylor, Director of Operational Services. Andy Ro, Director of Transportation, will also be in attendance. Besides being a change for all of us, all of our students who currently walk to school, will be assigned bus transportation for next school year.

The evening’s presentation is designed for parents and guardians. We will be conducting transition activities for our students later this school year.
