News and Notes from the Principal
A short week complete and a full week ahead! With the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 occurring tomorrow - we took time today to reflect on those brave men and women of that tragic day. With this, Aiden Gray shared the following with our staff and student body: "Tomorrow, September 11, is the 20th anniversary of a horrifying event in our nation’s history. On this day, terrorists launched the first foreign attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. Passenger aircrafts were hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Heroic passengers of a fourth plane foiled a final attempt at the nation’s capital.
In all, 2,977 victims lost their lives on that fateful day, including first responders who gave their lives rescuing others. However, our nation rallied. A wave of patriotism swept our country to combat terrorism around the globe.
Please join us in a moment of silence as we remember those we lost on 9/11/2001, and for all those brave men and women who, as first responders or soldiers, still keep us safe and free."
We are most certainly in a great place and work best when commonly aligned to a vision of unity, solidarity and respect! I am appreciative of the stakeholders, staff and students that continue to work together to truly make RHHS a great place regardless of the obstacles we must overcome! We truly are #BetterTogether!
While we continue to monitor COVID within school and community, I do ask that parents continue to commit to keeping children at home should they experience any of the following:
- COVID Symptoms
- (+) COVID Test
- Mandatory Quarantines
- Symptomatic Student w/Pending Test Results
As we are working to maintain a safe and sustainable environment for ALL students, our teachers will ensure that students are able to engage in activities outside of the face: face instruction should they be experiencing sickness in any capacity as well as working with students to make up assignments/information that may have been missed along the way!
Should you ever have a question or are just looking for avenues in which to connect with RHHS, be sure to follow our Social Media, check our website, submit questions in the form at the bottom of the page or email/call us directly! We are honored that you have entrusted us with your children and want to continue to partner with you to make this high school experience the best yet!
Be certain to take some time this weekend to rest, relax and rejuvenate. With Homecoming festivities around the corner we look forward to all the excitement to come! Stay tuned in and read about the opportunities within this newsletter!
