Dr. Justus, Principal


Message - April 2020

Dear Parents, students, and community,
We miss our students during this Covid-19  shutdown. We hope to see everyone very soon!
While nothing can replace face-to-face interaction with an educator, access to instructional materials is essential during an extended closure. Beginning the week of April 6, 2020, RCS will offer optional assignments and activities to keep students engaged throughout the COVID-19 shutdown. New assignments will be added for each week of the shutdown. Also, BHS teachers in all content areas will be sharing supplemental resources via their websites and will provide feedback on submitted assignments, although a grade will not be given.
Parents, if you need anything, please do not hesitate to call or email. We will take care of you!
