Prom 2019 - and early release on Friday, April 5

The 2019 RHHS Prom will be Saturday, April 6 at the Savannah Trade and Convention Center. Juniors and Seniors who have paid their class dues and are clear of the Obligations List can pick up their Prom ticket at lunch during the week of March 11. Any RHHS student who plans to attend Prom must be clear of the Obligations List. Students must be in attendance at school on the Friday before prom for at least half of the day in order to be eligible to attend prom.


Students attending Prom often want to leave school early on that Friday. Please know that students attending Prom must be in attendance at least half of the school day on Friday, April 5th.


This year, we are trying something new regarding students wanting to leave early on "Prom Eve Friday". We have developed a form for parents to complete and submit online. Administrators and Administrative Assistants will use the information shared on that form to contact parents and verify permission to leave early. Please help us be as efficient as possible and submit this information to us electronically through this link:

You may submit this now through Wednesday, April 3rd. The form will close at 3pm on Wednesday, April 3rd.

Advisement conferences - 9th and 11th grade

Advisors of 9th and 11th grade students will be scheduling conferences over the next few weeks. Our goal is for each advisor to have at least one face-to-face meeting each year with each of his/her advisement students.


Spring conferences target 9th and 11th grade advisement students; in the fall, we held 10th and 12th grade conferences.


If you have a child in 9th or 11th grade, please be on the look out for an invitation from your child's advisor to come in for this conference. If you don't get this invitation by mid-March, please let me or another administrator know so that we can work with your child's advisor to make this happen.
