RVHS Weekly Newsletter

Friday May 21st 2021


Hello Eagle families,

The light at the end of this tunnel is getting brighter by the day. Juniors have 8 days left on campus and 3 days in an asynchronous format. Seniors have 6 days on campus and only 1 required asynchronous day. The end is very near.

You are certainly aware that the numbers of COVID-19 cases has drastically reduced over the past month or two. That is great news for all of us. While we are anticipating that the county will significantly reduce restrictions on June 15, we are obligated to continue to following the current guidelines which include:

  • the wearing of masks on campus both inside and outside,
  • maintaining social distance of 3 feet indoors and 6 feet outdoors.
Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.

Finish strong!

Tim Dignan
