Raleigh Charter High School challenges college-bound students in a creative and supportive atmosphere to become knowledgeable, thoughtful, contributing citizens.






 
Inclement Weather Procedure

Should the weather interfere with our normal school schedule as is sometimes the case in North Carolina, please listen to WRAL-TV (Channel 5) or WRAL-FM (101.5 FM) or log on to www.wral.com for information on Raleigh Charter High School's either closing or delaying the opening of school. You can also check our Twitter and Facebook pages for announcements. We decide independently of other schools or systems whether to alter our regular schedule.

We make our decisions about closing due to weather based on the best information we have. We try to consider weather conditions for most of our families, but this can be difficult since our students come from many parts of Wake County and some other counties. We understand that parents need to make decisions about travel for their students based on conditions near their homes and how comfortable they are with traveling under those conditions. Therefore, if RCHS is open, but a student is not able to get to school because of local weather conditions, we will fully support that decision.

Logging in to the RCHS Website
RCHS Community
It is vital for our parents to log into the RCHS website to update contact information. With current information, the school can ensure timely communication with families, especially in the case of urgent or important announcements. Your RCHS login can also be used to view events on our calendar which are not open to the public and to view contact information in the Parent/Student directory. Parent userids are also vital to the success of our online sign-up system for Flex and Community Workdays. Each parent is assigned their own userid. Please note the following information concerning RCHS logins.
EACH NEW PARENT was sent an email with information about his/her id/login on August 6th. Please use the information in the email to log in and update your information. There is no need to request a parent ID. Check your spam folder to be sure it didn't get caught in there. In compliance with the FERPA requirement of an opt-out period, new students and parents will not have access to nor be displayed in the Parent/Student directory until August 22.
NEW STUDENTS will receive their RCHS network logins and RCHS email accounts during new user sessions conducted during the first week or so of school.
RETURNING STUDENTS needing their network or email passwords reset will need to come see Mr. Ennis or Ms. Smith once school is in session. (room 216) Students cannot request password resets online or via email.
RETURNING PARENTS can log in to the website by going to the login page (click User Login on the RCHS homepage) and typing in their UserName and password. Reminder: a parent's userid is the email address which is on record with RCHS. If a parent email address has changed since the last login, the parent should log in with the previous email address and update this information. If you have forgotten your password, type in your username and click "Forgot your password?". An email containing a temporary password will be sent automatically.
If you have any concerns, send a brief description of your problem to logins@raleighcharterhs.org.
