1K for Samantha Davis
Monday, Oct. 1st, 4-5pm
Message from student Savannah Dyar:
Some of you may have heard the sad news about the death of Samantha Davis this past weekend. She was a Cross Country runner from Union Pines High School in North Carolina, and she passed away just a few hundred yards from the finish of her race in Charlotte, NC. We’ve all heard of tragedies like this when it comes to sports, but the closeness of her death really hit home considering she ran XC (as do I and many of my friends) and that this happened during a meet. After I found out that my best friend and Samantha attended the same high school, I immediately contacted my friend and asked her if there was anything I could do; she said that local schools and the teams that attended the Charlotte meet are running 1k’s in honor of the last split Samantha was unable to finish, and that it would be greatly appreciated by the community if we would participate and spread the recognition for Samantha by taking videos/pictures and posting/tagging them as well (the tags will be available at the 1k).
Although sad, River Bluff has an opportunity to “Do Good” and rally together, showing support for Samantha, her family, and the community. I invite anyone who is interested to join myself and the RBHS Men’s and Women’s Cross Country teams to complete the 1k for Samantha, which will be held at the track on Monday afternoon, Oct. 1st, at 4:10 PM.

Signing Out Procedures
A reminder to parents regarding signing students out during the school day. Someone from the student's sign out sheet must come in and show ID to dismiss a child. We do not accept phone calls or emails for dismissal. You can come in on Monday to sign your child out during the week but only up until Friday of the same week. Also, if you are dismissing your child during ILT, then it is helpful to have made arrangements with the student ahead of time. We appreciate your help to assist in making this process efficient.
Counseling and Advisement Assignments for Students
Counseling and Advisement Team
The Counseling & Advisement team is working towards a more intentionally focused program to provide students with the best support. Rather than counselors having students in all grade levels (9-12), we are realigning to be able to more appropriately serve students’ transitional needs at the different levels. This realignment will also more closely mirror our CREW design allowing students to stay with their school counselor their 9th and 10th grade years and then have another counselor their 11th and 12th grade years.
