Upcoming School and Staff Events
Freshman and Sophomore 101 / IGP and Honors/AP Night
Monday, Nov. 19th, 6-8pm
This is a reminder of our Freshman/Sophomore 101 IGP Family Meeting which will be held on Monday, November 19th at 6:00pm in the RBHS PAC. We will be going over important dates, graduation requirements, and reminders on selecting courses for next year. This meeting will cover information you should know going into your IGP (Individual Graduation Plan) meetings. You will also have the opportunity to attend our AP/Honors Course Fair at the conclusion of the presentation if you choose.
It will be incredibly helpful if students bring their iPad with them to be able to log in their PowerSchool account to show you their course selections that evening. Only students have this access through their account and not in the parent account.
If you will be attending and require a language interpreter, contact the Counseling & Advisement Office as soon as possible so we can make arrangements.
Wednesday, Nov. 21st, 8:15am to Friday, Nov. 23rd, 3:45pm

Signing Out Procedures
A reminder to parents regarding signing students out during the school day. Someone from the student's sign out sheet must come in and show ID to dismiss a child. We do not accept phone calls or emails for dismissal. You can come in on Monday to sign your child out during the week but only up until Friday of the same week. Also, if you are dismissing your child during ILT, then it is helpful to have made arrangements with the student ahead of time. We appreciate your help to assist in making this process efficient.
Counseling and Advisement Assignments for Students
Counseling and Advisement Team
The Counseling & Advisement team is working towards a more intentionally focused program to provide students with the best support. Rather than counselors having students in all grade levels (9-12), we are realigning to be able to more appropriately serve students’ transitional needs at the different levels. This realignment will also more closely mirror our CREW design allowing students to stay with their school counselor their 9th and 10th grade years and then have another counselor their 11th and 12th grade years.
