    Important Dates

           School Open for Schedule Walk-through:  August 23rd from 1-3PM

           First Day of School:  Monday, August 26th



    Home Athletics Return Next Week: Be sure to check the website under Athletics for games at home.  We hope to see you, especially at the home football game on Friday versus the Red Rams from Franklinton High.  Let's go Rams!!!!


    Sign-Up Genius for Senior Breakfast: Please send items to the front office. The breakfast is Friday, August 30th.  We need all donated items by Wednesday, August 28th to allow us to take count and fill in.  The Sign-Up Genius is https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0B44A5AE2FA3FC1-2020


    Schedule Change Requests:  Information regarding the circumstances where we will consider a change and information about how to request a change are found on the school website in the scrolling banner.


    To apply for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits Online:  Go to www.MySchoolApps.com today to apply and potentially avoid a break in service. Also, remember that 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.


    If you missed Ram Camp:  It is inevitable that some folks will miss camp.  We are going to make printed schedules available from 1-3PM on August 23rd for those freshmen and parents who want to pick up a copy and navigate the building before the first day of school.


    Seniors who missed picture week:  We will have a makeup day on campus on September 9th.


    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 WAS 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. 


    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 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.


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

    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.
