RVHS Welcome Letter 2020


New Student/Parent Orientation

New students and parents are required to virtually attend/watch our orientation on August 10. This will be a Zoom meeting. Click here to join the meeting. The orientation will be recorded and placed on the web.


RVHS has been blessed to have amazing teachers and staff who care deeply about students. Over the past few months, RVHS has had a number of staff changes:

  • Mrs. Blakemore, Mrs. Fullington and Mr. Wrisley retired in June.

  • Mrs. Donnelly has transferred to Susan H. Nelson School.

  • Mr. Mann was hired as the Assistant Principal for RVHS.

  • Mrs. Cunningham has moved to room 18 and will teach Apex

We are very excited to welcome four new staff members to the Ranch:

  • Ms. Jereczek, RVHS Biology and Earth/Space Science and ASB teacher.

  • Mrs. Medina, RVHS Math and Physics teacher

  • Mrs. Sindermann, RVHS secretary

  • Mrs. Webb, RVHS English 11 teacher

RVHS Student Schedule and Elective Survey

All students need to complete a survey indicating whether the student prefers an Early Schedule or a Schedule. The survey also asks what electives a student prefers to take. Failure to complete the survey may result in a student’s schedule and elective being chosen for the student. (Click here.)

RVHS Graduation Requirements

At the recommendation of the RVHS teachers, the School Board voted to change the graduation requirements for the RVHS. The changes will take effect with the class of 2022. This year’s seniors will continue to follow the previous graduation requirements.

Here is a summary of the changes:

No Online Option at RVHS

Due to RVHS’s small school size and limited number of classes and teachers, at this time we will NOT offer the option for students to remain in online school when students are able to return to campus. We are investigating options for RVHS students who need to stay online . Possible options may include 1) enrolling at their traditional high school, or 2) enrolling at Susan H. Nelson Independent School.


RVHS’s teachers and School Site Council made the decision last Spring to initiate the use of iPads. Each student will be issued an iPad while they enroll at RVHS. Students will be able to use iPads at school and at home. Teachers will be tasked with finding creative uses of the iPads through project based learning.

Textbook and iPad Checkout Days

Students will receive a physical or digital textbook for each of their classes along with an iPad. Please be sure to attend your scheduled time. Checkout Days are August 12 and 13.

All students are required to schedule a pick up time by using SignUpGenius (click here).

On your Checkout Day, please park in the bus loop or the student parking lot off of Margarita Street and walk up the ramp to the campus where you will be directed. (The front will be CLOSED.) Students may attend alone or may bring ONE parent/guardian. Masks and social distancing are required.
