Monday is Labor Day, and all schools are closed. Enjoy the holiday with your families. We will see you bright and early on Tuesday. Parents – please help me encourage timely arrival at school. We have seen an increase in tardies to school over the past week. Remember, excessive tardies can result in disciplinary consequences as well as a loss of parking privileges.
Students parking on campus must register their vehicles. Wednesday and Thursday of this week, Officer Zirpolo tagged cars with warning notices that did not have the proper parking hang-tag. If your child drives to school, please make sure he/she has registered the car and that the car displays the issued hang-tag.
Yesterday, most students received their ID cards. While students are not required to wear these or have them on their person, students are able to use their IDs to check out books in the library as well as receive a $1 discount on all home game tickets at the gate. We hope to find local community members who will support our RHHS students by offering discounted purchases with their IDs.
Picture day is next Wednesday, September 3rd. Picture information went out through 1st block teachers earlier this week. If you didn't get a form, please have your child stop by the front office.

These are the future leaders that will serve with honor and skill in the United States Armed Forces."
