RHS Weekly Update

New This Week

Good evening Romeo High School Parents and Students,

Fall is definitely in full swing. The colors are beautiful, but I think we may have seen our last 70 degree day. Enjoy this beautiful Michigan fall!

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Osebold

Extra After School Bussing

Starting next week, we will be offering an additional bus home to RHS/9GA students who stay late for tutoring, mentoring, or clubs. This bus will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 PM. If your student wants to take this bus home, s/he needs to go to their academy office and let them know. Our Transportation Department needs to be able to calculate a route each day based on who is taking the bus. So, students have to be on the list and can't just get on the bus.

RHS After Hours Schedule 2022-2023

Fall Parent Teacher Conferences

Our Fall PTC will be on October 19th (5:00-8:00 PM) and 20th (3:00-6:00 PM). With our high school being in two buildings, and RHS itself being so large, many of our parents were unable to see all their child's teachers the last few years (especially if there was more than one child). To make things easier for our parents, we will be holding all conferences (RHS and 9GA teachers) in person, at RHS in the main commons and gymnasium (no virtual conferences). This will prevent you from having to sign up for times, walk all around the building, and visit multiple buildings. Hope to see you there!

October is College Application Month

Please check out this list of Michigan Colleges that always have free applications or are free for the month of October.

National Teen Driver Safety Week

Traffic safety advocates across the country are working to encourage parents and their teens to talk about the importance of safe driving during National Teen Driver Safety Week, October 16-22, 2022. This week, and every week, parents should have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. These rules address the greatest dangers for teen drivers: impaired driving, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and number of passengers.

Teen drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than drivers over 20 years-old, and ten times more likely to be involved in a non-fatal crash. With the help of involved parents, teens can become safer, smarter drivers. Teen drivers with actively involved parents are half as likely to be involved in a crash.

To help parents manage their teens’ driving and keep them safe, the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) has created a Parent Toolkit and video.

Teens can be the best messengers with their peers, so we encourage every high school to assign an advisor to lead students in developing a traffic safety campaign by applying for the Strive for a Safer Drive program (S4SD). Participating schools will each receive $1,000 to conduct their campaign. Once the projects are completed, student teams at each school will submit a video or PowerPoint outlining their campaign. Schools with the top-five winning campaigns will receive cash prizes ranging from $500 to $1,500. All participating schools will have the opportunity to send students to a free Ford Driving Skills for Life hands-on driving clinic next spring.

The OHSP is asking high schools to spread the word by using some or all the available tools in the OHSP Teen Driver Safety Kit. If you have questions about this effort, please contact Ms. Alicia Sledge, OHSP Program Management Section Manager, at SledgeA@michigan.gov.
