Reminders - dress code and cell phones

On Monday, October 30th, all of us - students and faculty/staff - are making a renewed commitment to following expectations for dress code. Students need to remember that the length of shorts/skirts/dresses must extend beyond the fingertip with arms at side.

For many students, this will mean the "sofee" or "wind" shorts will not be acceptable. Thank you in advance for helping your child choose appropriate attire each day.

As the temperature changes and it begins to get colder, please also remember that blankets are not allowed at school. Students are certainly welcome (and encouraged) to wear appropriate sweatshirts, sweaters, and jackets.

We will also begin to limit access to cell phones during classes. Students may have their cell phone before and after school, at class change, and at lunch. During class, cell phones may NOT be accessible to students. Cell phone access and use during instruction poses a noticeable distraction. This expectation is being enforced in every class, every block.

Class Dues

Class Dues are $30 each year. Students pay only for the years that they were at RHHS. Dues must be paid online using MyPaymentsPlus. All dues must be paid by Friday, December 1st. Students paying after December 1st will incur a $5 late charge. For Juniors and Seniors, these dues cover the cost of your prom ticket. The deadline to pay dues and have the prom ticket included as part of your dues is FRIDAY, February 23, 2018. If you do not pay dues by February 23, 2018, and you choose to go to prom, you will have to purchase a prom ticket separately at a cost of $125. Thanks for paying class dues before December 1st.

Taking care of our students

Identifying factors that contribute to stress is an important step in limiting stress. Recently, I read an article that noted social media as an increasingly significant factor. The design of some apps seems to increase anxiety in some users, and the constant "inbox" of information and stimuli can lead to us to feel like we have lost control. Therapists and educational experts recommend limiting "screen time" for teenagers as the best way to reduce stress that can be caused by social media.
