News and Notes from the Principal
If there is any constant in life, change is most certainly it! In just the past three weeks alone, we have experienced a multitude of changes that have impacted schooling, students, staff, stakeholders, etc. While these changes have impacted us all in different ways, these slight changes have been made in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID while remaining focused on our ultimate goal as educators; educating our students!
Change often creates tension, but our students and staff have been understanding of the new requirements and the regulations in place to make this eventual return to normalcy as "normal" as possible. In the midst of all the changes that took place during the 20-21 school year, RHHS continued to exceed the expectations and raise the bar in terms of academic achievement. With the latest release of statewide achievement results, the following infographic was generated to share these accomplishments of success with our stakeholders.
While we continue to monitor COVID within school and community, I do ask that parents continue to commit to keeping children at home should they experience any of the following:
- COVID Symptoms
- (+) COVID Test
- Mandatory Quarantines
- Symptomatic Student w/Pending Test Results
As we are working to maintain a safe and sustainable environment for ALL students, our teachers will ensure that students are able to engage in activities outside of the face: face instruction should they be experiencing sickness in any capacity as well as working with students to make up assignments/information that may have been missed along the way!
Should you ever have a question or are just looking for avenues in which to connect with RHHS, be sure to follow our Social Media, check our website, submit questions in the form at the bottom of the page or email/call us directly! We are honored that you have entrusted us with your children and want to continue to partner with you to make this high school experience the best yet!
Be certain to take some time this weekend to rest, relax and prepare for a full week ahead!

Superintendent Woods seeks 2021-22 Student Advisory Council
State School Superintendent Richard Woods is seeking students in grades 10-12 to serve on his 2021-22 Student Advisory Council. These students will meet with Superintendent Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom, along with other issues related to education, and will serve as the Superintendent’s ambassadors to their respective schools.
Applicants must be enrolled in a Georgia public high school (including charter schools) for the 2021-22 school year as a sophomore, junior, or senior. Virtual learning students are still considered enrolled. The Student Advisory Council will meet three times in person and once virtually during the school year; meeting dates are listed in the application. “Year after year, my Student Advisory Council is an invaluable resource as I make decisions that impact students across the state,” Superintendent Woods said. “Getting to know these students and seeking their feedback, opinions, and perspectives allows all of us at the Georgia Department of Education to make the best possible policy choices.”
Since students who participated in the previous year’s (2020-21) Student Advisory Council only had the opportunity to attend virtual meetings, Superintendent Woods will also host two in-person meetings specifically for members of that council who are still enrolled in high school. Those students have been contacted by GaDOE.
Click here for the 2021-22 Student Advisory Council application. Applications must be submitted by September 1, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Late applications will not be accepted.
Students in grades 10-12 who are enrolled in a public high school (including charter schools and virtual students) are eligible to apply.
Selected students will be contacted via email. All students may visit gadoe.org/studentadvisory on September 17, 2021 at 10 a.m. to see whether they have been selected.
Please note that we typically receive hundreds more applications than we are able to accept, and not being selected for the Student Advisory Council does not mean the student’s application was not strong.
