Sophomore and Junior Parent Night with Student Services

Please join us as we walk through important information for 10th and 11th graders. While they are not ready to apply to college just yet, it is never too early to begin planning. Additionally, let's make sure your student is on the right track for high school and RCC degree graduation.

Please join us Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 6:00 pm. Students will receive a link in their student emails to share with parents. We will also email parents for whom we have emails.

We are selling RECHS merchandise from now until September 11th. This is a fundraiser for the 9th grade team. Please show your support for your school and buy your raven wear soon!


Parent Observers in PowerSchool

All students are using the online learning management platform, Canvas, for their high school classes. All of our high school teachers are using Canvas for their classes. Parents are able to join the class as an observer and see their child (and only their child's) academic performance. If you would like to join your child's class as an observer, please email your child's teacher. If you are unsure who to email, you are welcome to email me, (Shea Grosch and I will forward your email to the correct teachers.

For Seniors

Effective in the 2020-2021 school year, two doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine are

required for North Carolina students. One dose is required for individuals entering

the seventh grade or by 12 years of age. The second booster dose is required for

individuals entering the 12th grade or by 17 years of age, whichever comes first.

The requirement for the second dose is new this year. Please turn in your shot record to the school office as soon as possible. The deadline is September 3, 2020. If you have questions regarding this new requirement, please feel free to call our school nurse, Monica Hurley, at 336-625-1137.


Students and parents, please remember we are taking attendance each day. Even all remote students, need to check-in with their teachers and complete their work daily. Students who are only in college courses, still need to complete attendance with Ms. Blackmon each day. It is imperative that every single student communicate with their high school teachers each day.
