Afternoon Student Pick Up Procedures

Thank You Parents for embracing our change to the afternoon pick up process!


As a reminder, students who are car riders should be picked up in front of the school only! No student pick ups should take place in either of the student parking lots.

Student Tardy Process Updates

It is important for all students to be in class on time, every day and every class period. We will continue our process for ensuring that students get to class on time each block. Starting this week, there will be 3 tardy stations set up for students who need a tardy pass.


After 5 tardies in a quarter, students are assigned to serve a day in ISS.

Make Up School To Start this Saturday!

The State Department of Education has reinstated the Seat Time Policy for the 2021-2022 school year. This means that FA's (Failure due to absences) have returned as well. Students who have been absent more than 6 times from a class, will need to attend Make Up School in order to receive credit for the class. The only absences that do not count towards the 6 absences are those absences directly related to COVID, where the nurse communicated a need to quarantine or isolate or students out for a school sponsored trip/activity


Make Up School sessions are $20 per session. The dates for make up school are as follows:

October 16th 8:00am- 4:00pm

October 20th 4:00pm-7:00pm

October 27th 4:00pm- 7:00pm

November 3rd 4:00pm-7:00pm

November 6th 4:00pm-7:00pm

November 17th 4:00pm-7:00pm

December 1st 4:00pm-7:00pm

December 8th 4:00pm-7:00pm

December 18th 8:00am-4:00pm


Mrs. Gamble will begin notifying students on 10/4 if they need to attend Make Up School. She will be sending Canvas messages to students with the number of hours that they will need to make up. Failure for students to make up this time, will result in them not receiving credit for the course.


If you have any questions concerning Make Up School, please contact Mrs. Gamble (803-980-2116 or rgamble@rhmail.org)
