There will be a meeting for those who will be in grades 9-12 next year and are planning to try out for the volleyball team. Both parents and athletes are invited to attend. The meeting will be held at 8pm in the RHS Media Center on Tuesday, April 26th. 

The meeting will be brief (30 minutes max). We will be going over the High School Clinic (spring and summer schedule), tryouts, and athletes will have the opportunity to purchase gear for the season. If you have any questions email Coach Struck at


Thank you for not parking in the maroon parking stalls in the north parking lot between 2:30 & 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturday mornings. We would rather not tow your vehicle as it is expensive for you to retrieve it!  Park in a yellow stall and you will be safe! Thanks for your cooperation. Always assume there will be a range…

Effective immediately, we will begin refunding lunch money to any senior with money remaining in their account.  Seniors will be able to come to the office, at the north end of the cafeteria, and obtain any funds remaining in their account.  Once any money is refunded, seniors will only be allowed to buy lunch with cash.  We ask that no checks or online payments be made after a senior receives their refund.

If a senior has a sibling within the district, the money in their account at the end of the school year will be transferred to a sibling's account.  This does not include siblings who attend charter schools.  If you have any questions please feel free to call me.
