RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use
#LND - BACK TO SCHOOL Edition - July 27, 2018
Thank you, everyone, for taking a role in our success. Many hands make for light(er) work!
I look forward to seeing everyone Thursday for Open House!
Chromebook distribution/laptop registration next week!
We are asking that ALL students to make arrangements to register their student owned device or check-out their assigned school issued chromebook prior to the first week of school. For three days (7/31,8/1,8/3), RHHS will be open to meet with students to declare which option (use an RHHS issued chromebook or an approved personal laptop) they will take, and complete the device registration process. In order to make this process efficient, devices will be assigned or registered for network access over the following dates in the West Campus LiNK;
Tuesday, Jul-31; 8AM - 8PM
Wednesday, Aug-1; 8AM - 8PM
Friday, Aug-3; 8AM - 8PM
Page 4 of the “Student Device Acceptable Use Guidelines” must be signed by the student and guardian and the student who is using the device must be present to collect/register their device. This process takes 20-30 minutes.
If you have questions about any part of our 1:1 plan, please email me.
Student schedules should be accurate for a large majority of our students. If a student has an error, a class missing in his/her schedule, or an unbalanced schedule (more academics one semester than the other), he/she will submit a schedule change request electronically. The schedule change is link is below-
Comcast Internet Essentials

Free and reduced lunch applications
The free/reduced lunch application can be printed from this link, or you can pick up this form from your child's advisor during Open House. I strongly encourage all students/families to consider applying for this. If you need assistance completing the application, please call the school - we are always happy to help!
Back to school Blood Drive!
RHHS will be hosting our 2nd Annual Back-to-school Blood Drive on Friday, August 3rd, 8am-2pm, in the RHHS West Campus Gym. Click below and see the poster below for additional information. Every pint counts - please give!
Open House - Thursday, August 2nd
This year, RHHS is offering an informal Open House from noon-5pm for returning 10th, 11th and 12th grade students. These students/parents may visit the school between 12-5pm on August 2nd to visit their child's advisor and meet teachers. It is less formal because these students are returning to RHHS and generally have fewer questions than our rising 9th graders and new students. I encourage returning students and their parents to use this option if they would like. Returning students are certainly always welcome during the formal Open House, 5-7pm.
*The school store will be open and will have RHHS swag for sale!
School start time changing
School begins on Monday, August 6th at 7:30am.
Office Hours for RHHS
RHHS office hours will be 7am-3:30pm beginning Tuesday, July 31st.
Student parking: parking permits for all go on sale July 16
Regular parking permits went on sale Monday, July 16th, for $65. All students parking cars on campus must obtain a parking permit - even Dual Enrolled students.
On the first day of school, August 6th, all vehicles parked on campus must have the required parking permit displayed.
Students may begin picking up their parking decals during office hours. These will be available from Ms. Kiser in the attendance office.
Taking care of our students - RHHS Counseling Newsletter
Last year, we began including this section in our weekly newsletter. This section focused on the social/emotional topics related to schools and students. The information was written each week by our counselors and usually tied into our weekly advisement lesson.
This coming year, the counselors would like to expand their communication to you. Our counselors will be producing a monthly newsletter. This will be written and sent out at the end of each month. This monthly newsletter will include grade-specific information, timely updates, and a continued focus on social/emotional wellness.
I want to thank our counselors for taking this initiative and improving upon an already strong practice!
Below you will find email contact information for our counselors. Please always know that we are here to help.
