Hello RHE families!

They day is almost here…Halloween! The excitement has been rising for the students. It has been an exciting week here at RHE. For Red Ribbon Week, the students have embraced the theme of each day about making healthy and safe choices. Thank you to Mrs. Aubel and Dr. Sandberg for organizing our weekly events.

Our annual Halloween festivities will begin with a parade on Wednesday, October 31st starting at 2:30 p.m. Please see the letter Halloween Letter 2018 - RHE . Parents may cheer on our costumed students on the back playground. For school security and safety reasons, parents who are coming for the parade are not permitted inside the school. Only those parents who are RHHSA Homeroom Liaisons will be permitted to help with the party. We love when parents come to the parade in costume; however, we ask that parents not wear masks that disguise their identity. Please remember that costumes incorporating weapons and/or depicting violence are not appropriate to bring to school. Our school strives for a climate of non-violence. Additionally, we are strongly discouraging clown costumes.

Please remember that only the RHHSA homeroom representatives and visitors approved by the office/health office will be able to attend the parties.
