Dear Parents & Families,
We're thrilled to introduce a new feature in our district app called Rooms! This platform is designed for seamless communication between staff and families, making it easier than ever to stay informed about school updates and activities.
As we roll out this new tool, we're starting with a small group of teachers, all spring sports coaches, and our Middle School and High School Principals.
While not all staff members will immediately transition to using Rooms as their primary communication tool, we're moving in that direction and aim to have full implementation by the beginning of the 2024-2025 school year.
Stay tuned for more information and resources as we continue the rollout. Effective communication is essential to our school community's success, and we're excited to embark on this journey with you through Rooms!
Due to the impending weather on Saturday, 1/6/2024, all RCPS events are canceled for tomorrow.
Enjoy the snow, and please be safe!
How does RCPS help students prepare for their next steps after high school? In this special episode of RCPS Community Partner Cafe, student host Leo Johnson talks with two RCPS seniors about their plans after high school. Leo, Clayton, and James reflect on their time in RCPS, share what helped them along their current paths, and provide tips for students and parents looking to get more involved. https://www.rcps.net/page/rcps-community-partner-cafe

SHS Events for the week of 10/23/23
Today was the first of a two day field trip for 9th grade Environmental Science students. Students visited Grand Caverns Park to test the quality of the South River by completing a water testing lab and searching for macroinvertebrates in different parts of the river. Students also toured Grand Caverns. A big thank you goes to Ms. Swartzentruber and Mrs. Crannell for putting this experience together for our students.
Football and Senior Night schedule changes due to impending weather on Friday.
Hope to see you at a Senior Night Event this week!
We are looking forward to seeing you at SHS events this week.
Your Marching Trailblazers were first overall in Class A. They won Fan Favorite, Best Percussion, Best Visual, and Best General Effect.
JMU's Parade of Champions is a premier band competition on the east coast!
They may be small in number, but they are large of heart and talent. They work hard each day to represent SHS well in events they take part in. We are EXTREMELY PROUD of this family of Trailblazers.
ITS A GREAT DAY TO BE A BLAZER!
Good Luck to our Marching Trailblazers as they compete in the Parade of Champions at James Madison University.
