Hello RHE families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful week and that you have been able to enjoy this beautiful weather. We had another week filled with fun activities and leaning.

Please see below for information about our upcoming weeks here at RHE. Additionally, please take the time to read about joining our Rolling Hills Home and School Association. We could not run our activities and events without the RHHSA and parent support.

Enjoy the weekend!

Here’s what’s in store at RHE next week…

Ever wonder where your $20 goes? Rolling Hills Home and School funds programs and events that are not funded by the district.

Assignment Books, Assemblies, Young Author Visits, Technology (chrome books), Science Fair, School Play and Field Day to name a few. Every student in the school benefits.

Our membership drive is our biggest fundraiser of the year and without your support these opportunities would not be possible.

If you haven't already purchased your membership, it is not too late! Please visit our school store and join today.

Thank you!

Home Access Center Demographic Information Update

As a reminder, at the start of every school year, the Council Rock School District requires parents/guardians to verify their demographic information through Home Access Center (HAC).

Only one parent/guardian should complete a demographic form for each child.

District/School Notifications, Emergency Contacts, Medication Authorization information etc. are directly dependent upon your completion of this form.

Box Tops

September Box Tops collection ends next Friday, September 27th. Please send you box tops into school with you child. Every classroom has a collection container.

Don't forget to double dip by continuing to clip Box Tops and scan your receipts using the Box Tops App!

Cell Phones

Student cell phones are to be used for emergency purposes only. Cell phones are not to be used in school or on school busses. Cell phones must be turned off and kept in the students' backpacks. Please be advised that the school is not responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen items.

In today's world, there are many reasons that students carry cellular telephones, but we have to collectively remind students about their appropriate use. Please see the Student-Parent Handbook for more information.

The application does not roll over for any families that received this service last year. Online application access can be found at: 2019-2020 Free and Reduced Application Packet Packet.
