RHPS: We are Connected
July 19, 2021
It is almost here.... 1st Day of School!!!!
The RHPS Faculty and Staff are excited to welcome our students to school on Tuesday, August 3rd.
PRE-K & KINDER CAMP
This school year, we will again host our Pre-k and Kinder camp prior to the first day of school. Our hope for this time is to get our youngest Wildcats familiar with the building prior to the first day of school. We hosted this for the first time last year and students seemed much more comfortable on the first day of school and knew exactly how to get to their classrooms. You will receive details at open house on the 29th.
NEW TO RICHMOND HILL?

PROCEDURES FOR 2021-2022
Bryan County Schools is excited to welcome back our students to the 2021-2022 school year. All schools will host an in-person Open House as we prepare for another successful school year. Please take advantage of this time to familiarize your child with their classroom, teacher, and school building. This will help prepare them for a smooth first day. Please note the following school procedures:
- First Day of School- Students will report to their homeroom class independently on the first day of school. We will continue the same drop-off routine used last year. If you plan to bring your child on the first day of school, please utilize the carline.
- Lunch Guests and Volunteers- We will follow the same procedures for lunch guests as last school year. Due to safety, we will be unable to accommodate lunch guests. However, we are very excited to have the opportunity to welcome volunteers back into our buildings for the 2021-2022 school year. Volunteers are a crucial part of what we do each day, and we will be able to start scheduling volunteers after Labor Day. We will share information regarding volunteer orientations in the near future. An orientation is a required component prior to being able to volunteer at any Bryan County school.
Thank you for partnering with Bryan County Schools as we strive to create a safe, academically-focused learning environment for our students. We look forward to an amazing school year!
CAR RIDER LINE
● Dismissal - Car riders have an assigned number. Parents may pick-up their children by driving through the car rider line with the child’s car tag displayed on the driver’s side dashboard. Please keep this card visible until the student is loaded in the vehicle.
Car rider tags are distributed before the school year begins. We can not release students without a car tag. If you have lost/misplaced your tag, please go directly to the front office to obtain a temporary tag prior to entering the car line.
● Morning drop-off for students will take place along the back of RHPS. We will use the entire sidewalk to unload students on the driver’s side of the car.
● Please do not drop your child off before 8:25 AM as we cannot guarantee adult supervision until that time.
● If your child would like to eat breakfast at school, they must be dropped off in the car line prior to 8:45.
● The car rider line will close at 8:55. Students will be marked tardy if they are not in their classrooms at 9:00. If you arrive after 8:55, please bring your child into the front office to sign-in.
● At the end of the school day, children will remain in a supervised area until someone picks them up from school. To pick-up your child, you must enter the car rider line. Refrain from cell phone use while in the car line.
● Your car must be totally stopped and placed in PARK before your child will be permitted to step out to enter your vehicle.
● For the safety of your child and staff members, we will load on the driver’s side only. Please work with your child to practice buckling and unbuckling themselves to allow for timely loading and unloading of cars. For your safety and convenience, we have a buckle zone that allows you to pull over and assist your child to buckle up, if needed.
● Please follow the established traffic flow to keep the line moving.
RHPS students are not allowed to walk independently. Walkers must be accompanied by an adult or a responsible sibling.
All walkers and bike-riders will complete a Walker/Bike-rider application. Once approved, you will receive a walker pick-up tag and your child will be in the walker pick-up area at dismissal. If your child is normally a walker/bike-rider and there is inclement weather, please use the car line. Walkers and bike-riders are limited to students who live within 1 1⁄2 miles of RHPS. Bus transportation is available for all other students.
Due to safety concerns and to keep traffic flowing efficiently, please do not park and walk up to get your child.
Traffic Patterns for RHPS/RHES/GWC
RHPS Parent Handbook
Print and bring the completed form along with any medication or medical supplies your child needs to have at school. For example, epi pens, inhalers, diabetic supplies.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR!
We are pleased to announce the U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended the federal program that offers free school meals for all students during the 2021-2022 school year.
The intent is to ensure children have continued access to free meals regardless of families’ ability to pay. BCS will serve a delicious and nutritious breakfast and lunch each day that school is in session. All of the meals meet nutrition standards established by USDA.
For children who want a little extra food at lunch, we will continue to offer various snacks and entrees’ at an affordable cost to parents.
School meals contribute to students’ well-being and readiness to learn! No application required. All students eat free!
