News and Notes
Fun Fact Friday - With a growing population of students comes growing opportunities for engagement! Did you know that as a HS student, your child could engage in dual enrollment college level courses - receiving both HS credit and college level credit simultaneously? While we have continued to see increased enrollment in this area, we wanted to ensure that you specifically were aware of the various options afforded to our students. Maybe this is your first child in HS, maybe you were not aware of Dual Enrollment options. If either of these describe you and you would like to learn more, read on.
The purpose of the Dual Enrollment program is to promote and increase access to postsecondary educational opportunities for Georgia high school students while increasing high school graduation rates, preparing a skilled workforce, and decreasing the time and cost to postsecondary credential completion. Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Program provides funding for students who are dually enrolled in a participating public high school and post-secondary institution in Georgia. Students take postsecondary coursework for credit towards both high school graduation requirements and postsecondary certificates, diplomas, or associate degree requirements. Georgia has created a singular program known as Dual Enrollment for eligible students in grades 10-12. Students may enroll on a part-time or full-time basis as Dual Enrollment students and take college courses at their high school or a postsecondary campus. Students will receive high school and college credit simultaneously when attending and passing eligible dual-enrollment college classes.
For additional information, be sure to check out our RHHS Counselor Website that specifically spells out the requirements and provides more information on how to engage in this opportunity! Click here for additional information.

Attention 10th Grade Parents/Guardians
Is your teen 16 years old or turning 16 before August 2nd 2023? If so, they will need proof of a booster to the meningococcal vaccination (MCV4) before being allowed to attend school in August.
If your teen is already 16 years old, it is strongly recommended that you contact your healthcare provider or the Bryan County Health Department before the summer rush.
This MCV4 booster is only given at the age of 16 or after. If your teen has a summer birthday, please make arrangements to ensure that they are ready to start school on August 2nd.
Meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial illness that affects the brain and causes shock, coma and death within hours of the first symptoms. Georgia law requires students be vaccinated against this disease.
Please submit a Certificate of Immunization (Georgia Department of Public Health Form 3231) to the school clinic prior to August 2nd.
