February is for Love at Rose Hill

Being that February is a month filled with Mustang love, friendship, and positive Mustang energy, I would like to wish our entire Mustang family a Happy Valentineโ€™s Day! I feel blessed to be your elementary principal and I am proud of our children, families, staff, and surrounding communities. In fact, I am thoroughly convinced that Rose Hill Elementary School has the greatest students in the world! I love everything about our school. I love our work ethic. I love our kind Mustang hearts. I love that I have an amazing teaching and support staff. Every morning during announcements we work on a character trait of the week. This week we are learning about GENEROSITY. Being generous is when you look forward to giving rather than receiving. I love that we have such generous people here at Rose Hill. I love that we have learned to say thank you, please, and I am sorry. I love that a Mustang sorry means not only an apology, but a commitment not to make a poor choice again. How is that for Valentine love? Please keep supporting our staff and our school. Thank you for your kindness, smiles, and support with behaviors, homework, and modeling the importance of a solid education.

The Reynoldsburg Police Department brings Books & Badges to Rose Hill Elementary school

This year the Reynoldsburg Police Department started the Books & Badges program. This program enables police officers to read to elementary school students then gives every child a copy of the book the officer reads. These fun events encourage literacy and allow the officers to bond with the kids at Rose Hill Elementary school. The students also have an opportunity to ask the officers questions about their jobs and lives. We love this partnership with our RPD!

Covid- 19 - Monitoring Symptoms

Monitoring of Symptoms

Reynoldsburg City Schools School Nurses will take a primary role in letting students and staff know when they need to stay home due to symptoms of COVID-19.

We ask that all families monitor symptoms and keep students home until they are asymptomatic. Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

โ— Fever or chills

โ— Cough

โ— Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

โ— Fatigue

โ— Muscle or body aches

โ— Headache

โ— Loss of taste or smell

โ— Sore throat

โ— Congestion or runny nose

โ— Nausea or vomiting

โ— Diarrhea

โ— Repeated shaking with chills

Anyone one with symptoms or a fever over 100-degrees Fahrenheit should stay home.

***Students must be symptom free WITHOUT the use of medication for 24 hours to return to school. ***

2021-22 Winter Weather Information

Dear Raider Families,

We are fast approaching the time of the year when snow, ice and extreme cold may cause disruptions to our school schedule. We wanted to share information about what factors determine a โ€œcalamity day,โ€ where school is canceled or delayed. We also wanted to share the various ways you will be notified of school closures.

What is a Calamity Day?
A calamity day is defined as: a school closure determined by the Superintendent for inclement weather or other public disastrous event. A calamity day is considered a non-instructional day. RCSโ€™s Central Office will remain open during calamity days unless otherwise noted.

Monitoring Weather Conditions:
We closely monitor the weather forecast and have provided helpful links on our website ( for snow and extremely cold temperatures throughout the winter months. We also maintain communication with the local road crews and police, and drive neighborhoods.

When assessing the safety of the morning commute, our focus is on school transportation. Are the temperatures and wind chills causing a frost-bite risk for children waiting 15-30 minutes at school bus stops (generally about -15 to -20 degrees wind chill)? Can school bus drivers navigate their routes with proper traction and visibility? Is the timing of the weather event such that city crews will not have time to plow or treat main roads?

Closures vs. Delays

Whenever possible, the decision to close or delay school will be made the previous evening. However, announcements may be made as late as 6:00 a.m. depending on a variety of factors.

When Reynoldsburg City Schools CLOSE:

  • All evening activities in the elementary and middle school buildings are cancelled.
  • High school evening activities may take place depending on the weather throughout the day. Communication regarding such events will be made by relevant coaches or advisors.
  • Preschool is cancelled.
  • Transportation to Eastland-Fairfield Career Center is not provided.
  • Community groups scheduled to use school facilities (e.g., Park and Rec, Scouts, etc.) will have their events cancelled.

When the Reynoldsburg City Schools DELAY:

  • AM kindergarten is cancelled.
  • AM preschool is cancelled.
  • Eastland-Fairfield Career Center morning bus runs are cancelled.

Parents, you know your children best. If you are concerned for your children's safety getting to and from school or activities, we respect your right to keep them home.

Communication Tools

When the decision to declare a calamity day is made, we use multiple avenues to communicate. As technology is not always fool-proof, we rely on several messaging channels to alert the community of any schedule changes. Those channels include:

  • Notifying local television and radio stations
  • Posting on social media: Instagram (@ReynSchools), Twitter (@ReynSchools), Facebook (@reynschools)
  • Updating the website ( and the REYN App
  • Sending emails, texts and phone calls to families

If you are not sure if the correct contact information is in our system for you to be notified, please call your building secretary. In addition, check your email spam folders for any emails that do not go to your inbox.
