News and Notes from the Principal
With a much needed and well deserved Holiday Break behind us, we are looking forward to ALL that the second semester of the 2021-2022 SY has to offer. While the second semester will certainly provide a number of opportunities for engagement and active involvement in school happenings, I wanted to take this moment to revisit expectations and provide resources to both our students and parents reading this newsletter:
- E-Cigarettes, Vaping, THC Pens, Etc. - With an ever-changing society, it seems as if tobacco companies, popular social trends and less than stellar influences have sensationalized the use of the abovementioned products. At RHHS there is a zero-tolerance policy for such paraphernalia/products and will be dealt with accordingly as to not increase usage or popularity amongst our most-prized possessions our students. Please see the resource linked here from the CDC for more information on this epidemic that continues to sweep the globe amongst teens and young adults.
- Appropriate Dress (See Above) - Times changes, popular styles shift amongst teens; but ultimately dressing for success has an impact not only on students feeling well prepared for school but also being presentable amongst peers in a school setting while meeting the expectations outlined in the BCS handbook. Students unable to meet the expectations will be handled accordingly with appropriate discipline consequence as to not impact the learning/teaching happening within the walls of RHHS by those unable to meet the standard.
- Timely Arrival - Being on time is an Expectation - Now and Forevermore! Set your alarm and get to class before the 7:30 bell rings. In addition, transitioning throughout the halls and making it to class on time shouldn't be a major hurdle or accomplishment. Late arrival results in loss of seat time which ultimately impact teacher instruction and student achievement.
- Extracurricular Involvement - Is your student involved either extracurriculars at RHHS? If not, why not? Research has shown that students that are actively engaged in school outside of the day-to-day educational expectations make better choices, make better grades and exhibit a greater sense of school pride all the while doing something they enjoy. We have an extracurricular option to meet the interests of ALL and if we don't reach out to me directly about the opportunity to get something like that started!

We look forward to welcoming all of our Wildcats back to RHHS on Wednesday, January 5, 2022.
See Ya, Love Ya, Bye!
