End of the Year Schedule for Students

It is hard to believe we only have 8 more days until Wednesday, June 16th, which is the last day of school for students. For planning purposes, here is the end-of-year schedule as well as the 2 hr. early dismissal schedule for students.

  • Friday, June 11: 2 hr. early dismissal for all students (in-person and virtual)
  • Monday, June 14: 2 hr. early dismissal for all students (in-person and virtual)
    • This is the last day of in-person school for students who attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays (A-Day students/last names A-K).
    • These students attend school virtually on June 15.
  • Tuesday, June 15: 2 hr. early dismissal for all students (in-person and virtual)
    • This is the last day of in-person school for students who attend school on Thursdays and Fridays (B-Day students/last names L-Z).
    • These students attend school virtually on June 14.
  • Wednesday, June 16: two-hour early dismissal for students/student last day (asynchronous day)
  • Phase 2 students will continue to attend school four days per week until the end of the school year. The last day of in-person learning for Phase 2 students is Tuesday, June 15.

All traffic should enter the drive-through celebration from Willow Lane and exit onto Oak Avenue.

We look forward to seeing our Rising High Schoolers!

Parents of Rising Seventh Graders - Updated Immunization Record Required

All incoming 7th graders need to submit an updated immunization record that shows that they have received the two required immunizations for 7th grade (meningococcal MCV4 and Tdap). If your child has already received these immunizations at a recent well-visit, please send us a copy now so that it can be processed. If your child is due to receive them soon, it can be sent to us over the summer. The immunization record can be sent via fax at (301) 934-2982, via email to, or dropped off to the main office.

Please note that if we do not receive this documentation by the start of the 2021-2022 school year, your child may be excluded from school. If you have any questions, please call (301) 753-1787 and ask for the school nurse.
