    August Graduation Event: Aug 1st at JQH Arena
    RHS enjoyed hosting a drive-through graduation event on Saturday, May 9. Professional photos can be downloaded for free at https://brashers.shootproof.com/.
     
    Our seated graduation ceremony has been scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at JQH Arena on the MSU campus beginning at 1:30 p.m. RHS will continue to monitor recommendations from the Greene County Health Department along with requirements set by JQH Arena over the coming weeks leading up to seated graduation. That said, below are some general important items for the event. Additional details will be shared as the event date gets closer.

    GRADUATION PRACTICE:
    * Graduation practice will take place on July 31 at 10:00 a.m. at RHS. Logistical details are being discussed to allow social distancing of students. However, attending graduation practice is a requirement in order for students to participate in the seated graduation ceremony.
    * Additional graduation day protocols will be shared at this practice.

    DAY OF SEATED GRADUATION:
    * Students should arrive to Hammons Student Center by 12:45 p.m. on August 1. Security will be at the entrance to check students in.
    * Caps and gowns should be brought, but not yet worn. No alterations (decorations) to caps and gowns should be made.
    * Business casual dress is preferred. Males must wear ankle-length pants.
    * All personal items (phones, purses, keys, etc) should be left with a family member or in your vehicle.
    * Doors to JQH Arena will open for guests at 12:00 p.m.
    * A certificate will be distributed to graduates during the ceremony since diploma covers and diplomas were already distributed during the drive-through graduation event.
    * Graduates are reminded to uphold behavior standards as any disruptions would lead to removal.
    * Photos will be taken and free digital copies will be available for download following the ceremony.
     
    HEALTH PROTOCOLS:
    * JQH Arena requires that all graduates and employees participating in the event must wear a mask. Graduates and employees will be provided a district logo mask to wear. However, graduates will be able to remove their mask to receive their certificate and if speaking at the podium.
    * Graduates will be socially distanced.
    * Spectators are highly encouraged to wear masks.
    * JQH Arena has determined that each graduate will be provided 8 tickets for guests to comply with capacity rules. Tickets will be distributed to graduates at graduation practice.
    * For those unable to attend, the event will be streamed. More details on this are forthcoming.
    * JQH Arena ushers will escort spectators to their seats to ensure distancing guidelines are taking place.
    * Families will be asked to exit the facility using multiple exits and to adhere to social distancing when meeting up with graduates outside of the building. Guests are not allowed on the event floor.
    * To limit contact, graduation programs will not be distributed at seated graduation. However, these were distributed during the drive-through graduation event in each graduate's packet. One extra copy per graduate is also available for pick-up at RHS after seated graduation, and a digital version of the program will be sent to families and posted on the RHS website in July.

District Announcements

  • Seated Summer School

     
    We are looking forward to seated summer school 2020! Elementary seated summer school will be July 6-24 and July 6-16 for middle school and high school students. Registration closed on June 16.
     
     
    We are incredibly excited to have students and teachers back in our buildings! Over the last several months our administrative team has been working on summer school and fall re-entry plans and protocols that will keep students and employees healthy while balancing the need for normalcy at school.
     
    To create these plans and protocols committees made up of individuals representing various viewpoints and employee groups collaborated to develop recommendations. The committees researched best practices from schools and businesses around the globe and consulted with DESE and health officials, including the Greene County Health Department. Every effort has been, and will continue to be, made to create healthy environments for our students and teammates. CLICK HERE to see the protocols.

  • Office Visits, Specifically Federal Programs

    In an effort to keep visitors and employees safe and healthy, visiting our offices may look a bit different. Specifically, we are asking that visitors to our Federal Programs Office for items like residency waivers adhere to the following requests. The reasoning is because the length of visits to this office is usually longer than others and the set-up of the office space is also a bit different than others across the district. Thank you in advance!

    1. When possible, please schedule an appointment to complete a residency waiver by calling 735-3715.  
    2. Please limit the number of people present to complete the residency waiver. 
    3. To expedite the process, please bring your identification and proof of residency to your appointment. Accepted proofs of residency include: real estate contract, rental agreement, electric bill, gas bill, or water bill.
