Upcoming Events/Reminders

  • Start of Semester 2 School Policy Reminders:
    • RHS/9GA are Nut Alert Schools: That means you shouldn't be bringing foods with peanuts or tree nuts to school. You know this; it's not new information.
    • Dress Code: This isn't too big of a deal in the winter, but here's our policy:
      • No alcohol, drug, or sexual paraphernalia
      • No undergarments showing
      • No low-cut tops
      • Shirt bottoms must rest below the belly-button (ie. no crop tops)
    • Cell Phones in Class: Cell phones must be stored in the phone holders during all classes. You have done a great job with this and the classroom distractions have decreased significantly. Thank you!
    • Attendance: Tardies and absences reset at the new semester. This is a chance for a fresh start. Here's a reminder of the tardy policy:
      • 5 tardies: Detention
      • 8 tardies: Meeting with your academy principal and parent

  • Mr. Bulldog 2023 is cancelled due to lack of interest. This has been a great tradition for RHS for many years. Unfortunately, we have been unable to get enough students to participate so we will not be able to hold Mr. Bulldog this year.
