RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use

#WEareRH - Weekly Newsletter - May 11, 2020

Curbside collection carnival

A curbside collection carnival is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, May 12th-13th, 7am-7pm. During these two days, we will be collecting all school-owned supplies. This includes textbooks, chromebooks* (seniors and underclassmen NOT returning next year), uniforms (JROTC and athletic teams), instruments, athletic equipment, and library books. *Students returning to RHHS next year should KEEP their chromebooks over the summer.*


Below is a map identifying the drop-off point for each item. All vehicles must enter on WEST CAMPUS and follow the one-way path along the bus ramp. All drop-off points are curbside - a member of the RHHS staff will come to your vehicle to retrieve the item(s) to be returned.


*Important - Seniors only - if you need your chromebook for AP tests, you may keep it and return it to RHHS after AP exams - click this link to let us know you need your chromebook for AP testing.

Yearbook update

Yearbooks have not yet arrived. Once we receive them, we will develop a plan for distribution and notify students/families.


The Herff Jones printing facility had to close temporarily due to the pandemic. The plant is operational now, and our yearbook is back in production. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

AP Exam Changes

Due to the unexpected school closure, College Board has made significant changes to the AP exam process this year. Students will take their exams at home and can complete the exam on a variety of devices. Each test will consist of Free Response Questions and will last approximately 45 minutes. The testing window has been altered as well; AP exams begin May 11 and run through May 22. Please click HERE for more information.


If you have further questions, please contact your child’s AP teacher or our AP coordinator, Mrs. Tanner (mtanner@bryan.k12.ga.us).

GSU modifying their admission requirements for Summer and Fall

Georgia Southern University first year applicants for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 are not being required to submit ACT or SAT scores as a requirement of their institution application.

According to University's Office of Admissions website, “First-year students applying to Georgia Southern University for the summer and fall 2020 semesters can be admitted without an ACT or SAT score, if they have a sufficiently high GPA.”


Counselors at RHHS encourage students to stay connected throughout the time of e-learning. Grades are going to matter more than ever without the ACT or SAT being considered for admission at GSU! Official high school transcripts will be used to evaluate a student’s academic performance and will be used in the college admission process. The COVID-19 pandemic has led the College Board and ACT to suspend many upcoming ACT and SAT testing dates. More information about these cancellations can be found at Collegeboard.com and ACT.org.


The University System of Georgia authorized the change that granted GSU prospective first-year students to meet all other admission requirements, including satisfactory completion of the required high school curriculum and all other requested documentation.

Georgia Southern enrollment counselors remain available to assist applicants and prospective students via phone and email.

Please note that the change to waive the test requirement is ONLY for first year applicants. Dual Enrollment applicants must still meet the required scores and GPA as indicated and set forth by the university.

Other universities and colleges throughout the states may or may not be adjusting dates and application criteria. Students and families should visit the school’s website they are interested in to learn about the most current information during this time.

Overdrive E-library Update

RHHS has just joined the district-wide Overdrive collection, so we now have access to even more e-books & audiobooks! Students and staff can go to https://soraapp.com/library/resaga, choose Bryan County School District from the drop-down, & login using your school Google Account. Login is the same now for both faculty AND students. Our old Overdrive page is no longer active, so please update your bookmarks to include the new RESA collection!

Counselors

RHHS has a strong team of school counselors to support our students. Students are assigned a counselor based on their last name.
