Where Excellence is the Standard - Week of May 2, 2022
Randle High School Updates
We are beginning our 2022 STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) EOC (End of Course) administrations. If your students take Algebra I, Biology and US History are required to take the test.
May 3 - Algebra I
May 4 - Biology
May 5 - US History
Remember that the tests are timed; therefore, it is imperative that students be on time and at school on these dates.
- Please try and schedule doctor’s appointments around these dates so students can be in attendance.
- Please remember that on these testing dates students are required to be monitored at all times until they finish the assessment.
- This being the case, we ask that you remember that lunch will be closed to all parents to ensure proper monitoring of students.
- Due to the fact that we will have students testing in all parts of the building, we will be a secure testing site.
- We are asking all visitors and parents to make arrangements to volunteer or visit on other days.
- Get a good night's sleep prior to your test date.
- Eat a solid breakfast the morning of your test.
Remember all High Schoolers are required to pass the Reading & Math STAAR tests in order to qualify for graduation. If any students are unsuccessful on the first administration, they will have a second opportunity to retake an exam late this summer. Specific dates will come out later this month.
We truly appreciate your support in providing a stress free and quiet testing environment.

Cell Phone Policy
We take your child’s education seriously. As we prepare for the upcoming STAAR End-of -Course exams, we wanted to place an importance on minimizing distractions. Beginning Monday, March 7, 2022, we are instituting a no cell phone policy during class.
Students are allowed to bring cell phones to school and are allowed to use them before school, during lunch, and after school. Phones should not be visible and in use between passing periods or during class, unless students are provided permission by the teacher. Cell phones have become a distraction.
For clarification, cell phones can be in the student's possession, but the phone must be put away during the instruction. If a student has their cell phone visible, without teacher/staff member permission, they will be asked to give their cell phone to the teacher/staff member. They will receive their cell phone at the end of the day from the front office. The following information will be posted in every classroom:
- Phones must be put away at ALL TIMES during instructional time, unless there is an instructional purpose GIVEN by the teacher. If you refuse to follow this expectation, it will result in a discipline referral. (NOTE: Phones are allowable before 8:15 AM, during the student's 30-minute lunch time, and after 3:40 PM.)
- Ignoring a teacher or staff member when they ask that to put away your cell phone will result in a discipline referral.
- All students must have their planner hall pass signed by a teacher to be out of their scheduled class. Students without a pass will receive a discipline referral.
- Instigating, participating, or video recording any type of altercation, harassing/bullying, or any other student code of conduct offenses with your cell phone will result in a discipline referral and possible alternative school placement.
Please know that educating our Randle High School students is our number one priority, and we place a precedence on having a safe and secure school. We appreciate your support and partnership in maintaining an environment and culture where learning is the focus.
