• Rolesville HS Weekly Updates     | July 12, 2019

    Important Dates:

           AP Course Drop: July 12th (were due by 3 PM today)

           Tux and Drape Pictures:  July 29th through August 2nd (See below)

           Ram Camp:  August 7th



    Rising Freshman Ram Camp-August 7th:  If you have a rising 9th grader or know of one, please share.  We will host Ram Camp on August 7th from 8 AM - 12:00 PM.  (NOTE TIME CHANGE) Go to the RHS website to the scrolling banner to register.  As the pictures change in the banner, you will see one that announces Ram Camp on August 7th.  When you click on the picture, it will take you to a registration link. We will send information and a reminder in July, but we would like to get the word out ASAP to allow you to plan for your Ram to be in attendance.  Note that we take freshmen pictures during Ram Camp to take one thing off the freshman plate when school starts, so we will not have another full round of pictures once school starts (only a makeup day). Make sure your Class of 2023 Ram looks good for the picture! We also have students meet staff and walk the building.  We look forward to seeing our new Rams then!


    Bus Transportation for 2019-20:  Keep in mind that the deadline to apply for bus transportation changes or simply to apply for regular bus transportation for 2019-20 is July 29th.  The WCPSS Transportation Department will process requests in the order that they are received. The department plans to release routes online on the WCPSS website on August 16th. Requests for dual stops, alternate stops, before and after care needs, etc. will begin to be received on Sept. 25th. 


    Fall Sports Pictures:  I got an email earlier this week to remind us that Fall Sports pictures will be taken on August 6th.  Information will be sent home with athletes. It will explain Strawbridge’s package options and the times for the pictures.


    PTSA Activities in August:  We have started making plans for August events that will require the assistance of parents.  We will have Sign-Up Geniuses for Back-to-School Teacher Breakfast (Aug. 20) and Senior Breakfast (Aug. 30).  We will need both food/drink and folks to set up, distribute and clean up. There will be more information to come.  If you happen to be a business owner and want to donate the drinks or some food item in particular, let me know. We will make a note and then not add it to the Sign-Up Genius.  I believe we had some parents secure very specific donations like biscuits or drinks as they already had those items available. I am just planting the seed now to make sure you are on the lookout for more information.


    Free and Reduced Lunch for 2019-20:  There is a change that is very, very important regarding the carryover from last year to the next year.  I want to make sure families are aware. The new time limit for carryover from the prior year is 30 operating days or until the application is processed, whichever comes first.  Remember that if students in the same household are on different school calendars, the deadline for benefits will be different dates. The deadline for traditional schools will be October 8, 2019.  Families will receive a meal benefits card in the mail with instructions about how to apply. Paper copies will also be available at RHS when school begins. Students may request a copy from the cafeteria manager if paper is preferred over electronic application.  


    Lunch Prices for High School:  Full price = $3, Reduced = $0.40






    Class of 2019 Diploma/Graduation Pictures:  I sent an email on earlier but want to repeat the link here.  Please refer all questions to Strawbridge Studios. Students were provided with a card and contact information at rehearsal.  https://vando.imagequix.com/g1000732050 


    A and A/B Honor Rolls for 4th Quarter:  We have updated the honor rolls on the wall outside Student Services.  If your Ram was on the honor roll, remind him or her to check it out the next time he or she is in the building.


    Parking and Lunch Pass:  I am sure you are wondering when we will post information regarding both of these.  We are awaiting final information before we make payments available online in addition to the requirements.  We will let you know as soon as we are clear to post.


    Students who have AP Courses for 2019-20:  Make sure you are doing your summer work if your teacher requires it!


    Schedules for 2019-20:  We are still in the process of scheduling for 2019-20. Please do not call the school to discuss yet, as we are working diligently to complete and review them.  It will take a few more weeks. We will notify you when we are prepared to share them. Also, we will remind you of the schedule change guidelines and requirements when we get closer to the time that they can be requested.


    Rising Senior Tux and Drape (AND CAP AND GOWN) Pictures:  Strawbridge sets up at our school rather than have students report to a studio.  This summer, several photographers will be on site during the week of July 29 through August 2.  Strawbridge is going to send a letter to the address we have in PowerSchool and it will have an appointment date.  If you cannot make that date and time, you will call Strawbridge to either reschedule for another RHS day and time or another WCPSS school that is also doing the same thing but at different times for Strawbridge. If you do not get a letter by the third week in June, I suggest calling Strawbridge.  If they send me an appointment list, I will let you know we have a list on site. Also, there are postcards in Student Services that juniors need to pick up. It explains how you can save $10 on a package. The card is required. We will post this information on the banner of the homepage, also. (Note:  Strawbridge includes cap and gown as part of the session.)
