RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use

#LND - LeaveNoDoubt - August 31, 2018

Wildcat Online Store - Now Open!

Richmond Hill High School and the School Store are excited to announce the launch of our online store. RHHS has partnered with BSN to create a full service apparel website that allows the customer to customize any of the items to fit their need. All of the Athletics, Clubs, and Organizations are represented in the website as well. We are excited to see the Richmond Hill community outfitted in RH gear! A special thank you to Mr. Stacy Bennett for his work in getting the online store up and ready.

Please visit our online store often for your Wildcat gear...


Dress for success

Thank you for all of your help in making sure your child is dressed appropriately for school. Today, teachers were encouraged to revisit our expectations regarding length of shorts/dresses/skirts as well as dress code rules.

Beginning Tuesday, September 4th, we will have a renewed sense of helping students follow dress code. Our goal is not to embarrass or shame students - please know this upfront. We will enforce the dress code, and we will do this with as much care and respect as we can offer.

If a student is out of dress code, he/she calls a parent to get appropriate clothes brought to him/her or we lend the student something we may have on hand.

The wind shorts/track shorts/nike shorts do not typically meet length requirements - so if your child is a fan of these, please check that they are long enough to meet school dress code requirements.

Class Dues

RHHS student dues will be uploaded to students’ MyPayments+ account on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. Dues are $30 per year. Students only pay for the years he/she attends RHHS. The deadline for paying dues without incurring a late fee is December 1, 2018. When paying on MyPayments+, you will see a payment of $45. Please do not be alarmed by this. In an effort to streamline our payment process and make bookkeeping easier and more accurate, we have already included late fees into the total amount. To avoid paying late fees, please use the discount code "December1" - this will reset the cost to $30.

February 22, 2019 is the final date to pay dues in order to get a prom ticket covered by payment of dues. Any junior or senior student who wishes to go to prom and does not pay dues before February 22, 2019, will have to purchase a prom ticket for $125. Students who have not paid dues in past years must pay those dues as well as dues for this year by the due date in order to receive prom ticket or to be able to participate in graduation week events and graduation ceremony.

Senior Picture Makeups

Lifetouch will be at RHHS on Saturday, September 8th for Senior Makeup pictures.

October 13 has also been opened for Senior Portraits. These are the final two dates.
