Bulldog Block/Power Hour

At RCHS we are making a schedule adjustment to our lunch and tutorial/club time in the middle of the school day. Freshman and sophomore students will be scheduled in Bulldog Block for thirty minutes and will have a designated lunch during A or B Block. Bulldog Block allows 9th and 10th graders the opportunity to focus on their academics, tutorials, accelerated instruction and to learn the skill of scheduling their time for clubs and academics. .


Juniors and Seniors will continue to have the full hour for Power Hour which incorporates their lunch, tutorials, clubs and more. Seniors only have the opportunity to sign up for off campus lunch during the Power Hour time with parent and administrative approval through forms in Family Access. We will review this information the first day of school with all students in class meetings.
