Summer Asssignments
Preparing for the 2018-2019 School Year

Students are reminded that most English classes, as well as AP (Advanced Placement) classes have summer assignments. Typically, the only summer assignment for incoming 9th grade students is English.

The reading assignments for English 2 vary by teacher. All students will receive their class schedules with the names of their teachers in the summer mailing packet. Packets will be delivered in early July.

Summer Hours
RCHS Office

During the summer, the office has abbreviated hours. From June 11 through August 3, the school office will be open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9 am-2 pm. However, we will be completely closed from July 2 through July 13. Regular office hours (8:30 am-4 pm) will resume on August 6.

A Note to Students About Schedule Change Requests
RCHS Office

Please make all requests to change 2018-2019 class schedules in writing. The student making the request must submit a sheet of paper to the school office with the following information: name of the student, the course to drop, and the course to add. All requests must be signed by a parent or guardian, and mailed to the office or turned in during office hours. Upon submitting the request, the student must also send an email to last year's teacher in that subject area and ask the teacher to email Ms. Huddleston with their approval.
