Thank You Students

Thank you to the students who helped out today at RBHS.  We started the process of moving to the new building.  Many desks, boxes, books, and other items were moved from various rooms.  We could not have done it without all of the student help.  Thanks again to everyone.  It is a great day to be Rocket when you great students like we have here at RBHS.

End of Year Information for RBHS Students & Parents

Dear Parents:

The end of the 2013-2014 school year is near. Here is some end-of year information to help you plan your schedules.

Final Exams:

Final Exams will be Thursday May 29 (Periods 1, 3, 5, 7) and Friday, May 30 (Periods 2, 4, 6, 8). Both days school will be dismissed at 2:10.

June 2, 2014:

The last student attendance day will be June 2, 2014. Certain Freshman will be taking the PARCC End-of-Year assessment pilot in Algebra. Sophomores will be taking the PARCC End-of-Year assessment pilot in English. I have moved this pilot to the last day in order to minimize disruption to classes. I was originally looking to do this pilot the day before finals. All other students will be assigned to various teachers to help in the process of moving from the old building to the new building. The school will be providing lunch to all students who are here on Monday. Most likely it will be pizza. Even though it is not going to be a day where students are going through their class schedule, it still is a student attendance day for freshman, sophomores and juniors. If your student can not attend that day, please notify the main office.

Report Cards:

Report cards will be emailed to parents by Friday, June 6, 2014.

Lunch Account Balances:

All lunch balances will be rolled over to the new school year. If a graduating senior had a balance either a check will be issued to refund the balance, or the balance will be transferred to his/her sibling.


Any fees or fines that have not been paid (i.e. textbook damage and library fines) will be posted to the fee/fines section of the parent portal.
