RHS Weekly Announcements | October 9, 2020
Hello, Ram families!
Happy Friday to you!
Materials distribution Wednesday, October 14th
Select teachers have prepared materials for students to pick up in preparation for second nine weeks. I know that Math 1, 2 and 3 students have workbooks that some folks collected when they came in for pictures. If your Ram is in Math 1, 2 or 3 and you have not gotten the workbook, please plan to come by school between 8 AM and 3 PM on Wednesday. Select other teachers have also prepared materials and will notify students if they need to gather materials for the second nine weeks.

National Achievers Society Interest Meeting
There will be an interest meeting on Monday, October 12th at 3PM for students who are interested in becoming a member of NAS. Those who are interested need to email Ms. Key at email@example.com for a code to enter the Google Meet. Please do not wait until the last minute to request the code as she needs time before the meeting to prepare.
Please support RHS PTSA through the purchase of a $5 Belk charity ticket (RHS PTSA keeps 100% of proceeds) and you will receive $10 off your first purchase with your charity ticket sale. Easy way to buy the perfect gift for your student, mom or someone else that deserves to be spoiled which also can include you!

These forms have been updated to extend the no fuss through October 31st (instead of 9/30/20) & the membership form has the Amazon link updated to include Rolesville High School PTSA because there was another Rolesville in a different state.
Regarding Use of the Fields and Courts at RHS
Except for use of facilities for athletics workouts when appropriate, the fields and courts are not to be used. WCPSS posted this at the start of the pandemic and has not lifted these restrictions. I genuinely do not want anyone to get in trouble for trespassing, so I am sending a reminder today.
Remaining Asynchronous Days for RHS
As many of you are aware, WCPSS has determined that each school can designate one day per week as an asynchronous day. Oct. 14th and 28th have been set as RHS asynchronous days. Students will have assignments that must be submitted and will be used for attendance purposes. Staff will use this time for feedback to students, meetings such as IEP meetings, tutoring with individuals and groups of students, planning with their like-content colleagues and more.
Senior Makeup Pictures
We have Nov. 12th as the date for these. We will send more information as we are prepared to address senior pictures.
Immunizations for Seniors, including Virtual Academy
We are making one more attempt to get the shot records for our seniors. Per state law, whether a student is on site or in virtual school, shot records are required. We will have to exclude students (suspend) beginning October 12th if we do not have records. Is is extremely important to contact Jane Stever (firstname.lastname@example.org) to share a copy of your senior’s shot record if you have been contacted regarding absence of a record.
If your student has a WCPSS-provided Chromebook, it is very important that the computer be shut down every night. There are updates that are pushed out overnight and need to run when the computer is turned in the morning. PLEASE have this discussion with your Ram to help the computers run well.
What if my Ram’s WCPSS-issued Chromebook or Hotspot is not working properly?
WCPSS has a family help desk to support your needs. Please visit https://www.wcpss.net/domain/17256. You will complete a form online to which a WCPSS employee from the Help Desk will respond with a call to you.
Virtual Senior Parent Night
While we are still building the senior year as we go, the counselors have provided a link to a virtual presentation that we normally share in our auditorium. Senior parents, please take time to listen to the presentation to help you know what to anticipate for the senior year.. This presentation is online on the Student Services page. The presentation has been recorded in Spanish as well as English. The presentations will stay online to allow parents to view it. There is also an FAQ form for parents to submit questions after they view the presentation.
The 2020-2021 yearbook is going to be a book to treasure for years to come. Make sure to purchase early to get the LOWEST PRICE of the year. If you choose to personalize your book (students can choose from monograms, crests, name stamps) you will be able to choose 4 FREE Icons as well during this Back to School Promotion! See more details about this offer here. Please note – this offer ends on October 23rd. You may click here for easy purchase online at http://jostensyearbooks.com/?REF=A01123709
Financial Aid Advisor
Our new advisor, Linda Taylor, will begin working in her role on Sept. 14th. She will be available for our school on Wednesdays from 9AM - 2PM. She will be working onsite most of the time. The financial aid video has been posted to our website. I just want to be certain that parents are aware that they can make appointments to speak with her. I am not certain how she will want to be contacted just yet, but I want to put it on your radar. You are always welcome to call the school and ask for the Student Services Department to connect with her.

If you must come to school
I know I have said it, but please come prepared. You must wear a mask, follow social distancing guidelines and sanitize when you are here.
If we can handle things remotely
Anything we can handle remotely, let’s plan to do it remotely. We will hold virtual meetings with parents, Student Services, etc. We are happy to schedule them. We all just need to get our virtual work calendars in sync!
Have a great weekend and stay RAM STRONG!
