"Order Student ID Badge". Students must wear an ID to enter the building and are required to wear it at all times during the school day. This button can be used to request and pay $5.00 for a replacement ID online.


"Student Early Release". Is the best way to get your student out of class. You can send the request at least 2 hours in advance.


"Verification of Enrollments (VOE)" Will make getting a VOE easier for all. These take time to process, so we ask that you make your request at least 3 business days prior to your DPS appointment.


"TV Announcements". Parents and students alike are able to view the announcements that are shown on the screens around the RHHS campus.
