Still Want a Yearbook?
If you have not yet pre-ordered a 2018 yearbook, you still have time. There are approximately 100 books remaining.
MONDAY, APRIL 30, 2018 will be the last day to purchase a yearbook online or at school.
After Monday, April 30 any/all remaining books will ONLY be sold on distribution day on a first come first served basis. Cost on distribution day is $90.
To reserve a book online, go to jostensyearbooks.com.
To purchase a book at school, you can pick up an order form in the front office or in F201 and bring the order form and payment to the front office or F201. If paying with cash, you must pay with the exact amount ($85) when purchasing at school.
We do not have a specific date set for distribution day until we get an accurate date from the publisher - we are predicting distribution day will fall sometime between May 7 - May 11.
If you are unsure as to whether or not you have ordered a book, there is a list outside of room F201 with names of everyone who has purchased a book as of today (4/16/2018).
We did not sell books on registration day, so previous purchases would have been done online or by students bringing payments to the school.
We also have about ten books remaining from previous years. To purchase older books, students will need to see Ms. Powell in F201. Prices for those books are as follows. (Payment with a check to RBHS or exact amount in cash).
2016-2017 (Perspective) $40
2015-2016 (Boundless) $30
2014-2015 (Momentum) $252013-2014 (Burst) $15

Signing Out Procedures
A reminder to parents regarding signing students out during the school day. Someone from the student's sign out sheet must come in and show ID to dismiss a child. We do not accept phone calls or emails for dismissal. You can come in on Monday to sign your child out during the week but only up until Friday of the same week. Also, if you are dismissing your child during ILT, then it is helpful to have made arrangements with the student ahead of time. We appreciate your help to assist in making this process efficient.
Counseling and Advisement Assignments for Students
Counseling and Advisement Team
The Counseling & Advisement team is working towards a more intentionally focused program to provide students with the best support. Rather than counselors having students in all grade levels (9-12), we are realigning to be able to more appropriately serve students’ transitional needs at the different levels. This realignment will also more closely mirror our CREW design allowing students to stay with their school counselor their 9th and 10th grade years and then have another counselor their 11th and 12th grade years.
