Big picture


On Monday, March 22nd, Rowan County Schools reurned to in person instruction five days per week. Students will continue on the four block schedule, rotating Green and White days for the remainder of the year.

Green Days - M, W, F1 - 1st Period, HR, 5th Period, 7th Period

White Days - T, TH, F2 - 2nd Period, 3rd Period, 4th Period, 6th Period

  • MISSING/INCOMPLETE ASSIGNMENTS: Please encourage your child to complete all assignments for their classes this week so that they can start on the right path. We want your child to be successful, completing this week's assignments will be helpful moving forward as we transition to face to face schooling.

  • MASKS: Everyone is required to wear a mask when they enter the school building. Masks must be worn correctly covering the nose and mouth.

  • MORNING DROP-OFF: Drop off begins at 7:15am. For students being dropped off at school by an adult, they will continue to pull around to the front of the building.

  • AFTERNOON DISMISSAL: Afternoon dismissal procedures will remain the same as well. First Bus Riders be released at 3:05pm. Parent Pick up students will be released at 3:10pm. Please pull up to the front of the building and remain in your vehicle. It might take students a minute or two longer to get to you, as there will be more guardians/students trying to connect. Second Bus Riders will be released at 3:15pm. Please remember that students are still not able to ride the bus home with other students unless it is part of their regular transportation routine.

  • ABSENSES: If a student must be absent from school for non-covid related sickness or other reasons, it will be their responsibility to collect the work they missed from their teachers upon the student's return. Please contact the office if your student cannot attend school that day. If a student has a covid-related absence, please contact the RCSHS front office (606-784-8956) for additional information.

If you have any questions concerning return to daily in person instruction, please call the high school at 606-784-8956.
