Parents can drop off and pick up their student's on the east side of the building. The west side of the building is reserved for staff parking and bus traffic only.

the q

Can a student's class schedule be changed?

the q

The master schedule of classes at RCHS is based on specific course requests by students and parents made during the spring semester. It is important that students discuss course choices with their parents, teachers, and counselor because teachers are hired and assigned so that students have the opportunity to take the courses they request. Every attempt will be made to schedule students into the courses they choose. † Once the school year begins, schedule changes will not be made unless an error was made in the selection of courses that will affect the student's graduation plan.

The following criteria will result in schedule changes:

  • The student is a senior and is not scheduled in a course required for graduation
  • The student is misplaced in a course (no prerequisites, previously earned credit, etc.)
  • Student schedules may need to be changed in order to balance class sizes or to accommodate teacher workloads

† Please refer to the AP/PreAP contract for details about the AP-PreAP Exit Process.

House offices are based on the first letter of the student's last name. Ex. John Doe would be in Alpha House because Alpha House serves students with last names beginning with letters A-F.

the q

How do I report my student's absence?

the a

Guardians are encouraged contact their student's House office to notify them of the absence. When students return to school there must be a note turned into their House office within three days of their return.

It is critical that notes be turned into a student's House office in a timely manner to ensure that the absences are not considered unexcused. Notes from parents (containing dates, times, reasons for absences, and parent's daytime phone numbers) or medical notes (containing the office phone number and the date and time of treatment) are due the day a student returns to school, but may be accepted up to three days after an absence. Without a valid note within three days, an absence will remain unexcused. If a student leaves early for any reason, they must still bring a note to get the absence excused; even if the parent checked them out in the front office or the nurse sent them home.
