Welcome to 2019! My hope is that everyone had a restful and happy holiday season. We happily welcomed all of our students at RHS back today (01/07) and look forward to the upcoming spring semester.
Eighteen weeks have come and gone this school year, each packed with events and milestones for our students in the realm of academics, athletics, and fine arts. The coming months promise just as many opportunities. From the continuation of our winter sports season to spring sports season, band and choir assessments, prom, and graduation, we are gearing up for the final stretches of the year. What a great year it has been!
Report Cards will go out on Thursday, January 10th. Any student with a failing course grade or loss of credit will have their report card and a letter sent home via mail. Excessive absences letters will also be sent home during this time. If you receive one of these letters, please contact my office to arrange a meeting time with your child.
Going forward, each month has at least one scheduled calendar day when school is not in session. On January 21st, we will celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. If your student is looking for ways to participate in giving back on this day, surrounding areas of the state have many opportunities to volunteer. Have your student see one of our counselors for help in seeking out opportunities if they so desire.
We look forward to meeting your child's needs during this last semester of the school year. If I can be of any service, please contact me or my office for assistance.

Closed Campus Policy
All schools in the District shall operate closed campuses. Students are required to stay on campus from their arrival until dismissal at the end of the regular school day. Students may be given permission to leave the campus by a school official and must sign out in the office upon their departure.
Students may not leave campus at anytime during the day without a parent signing the student out. Exceptions to this would be for an appointment with a doctor or dentist, death in the family or other emergency, or students scheduled to attend college/vocational classes on another campus.
A parent must be present to sign the student out through the school office during lunch. Phone calls will not be accepted except in cases of emergency.
Please help our school by ensuring this policy is followed for the safety of all students on our campus.
Anyone found violating this policy will be directed to our campus administrator and our School Resource Officer.
Student Grade Reporting System
Students and Parents may access grades at any time via the Home Access Center (HAC). Many parents have sought out how to view grades and attendance from home. For usernames and passwords of your HAC account, please contact Ms. LaKita in the high school office.
First semester grades are due in E-School on Monday, January 7, 2019. Report Cards will go out on Thursday, January 10, 2019. Any student with a failing grade or loss of credit will have their report cards mailed home to the address on file in our system.
Google Classroom, a feature previously used at the junior high and on some elementary campuses, is now being utilized to publish assignments and allow students the opportunity to submit online.
These features are tools used to enhance the overall learning experience, not to create entire online courses. To access your student's Google Classroom accounts, contact your child's teacher. For questions on Google Classroom, please contact the high school office.
