Dear Rye High School Parent and Student:
Summer is almost over and we are busy planning for your return. Parents, here are a few items the students will have to have to start school. Please purchase pencils, pens, and paper for the start of the school year. Students can check out a lock for a $5.00 refundable fee (only RHS locks can be used on lockers). The five dollars will be returned when the lock is returned at the end of the school year. The school secretaries would appreciate to have each item on a different check. Information for ordering/paying for pictures is on the back of this letter. Freshmen will have their pictures taken Aug. 7 and sophomore thru seniors will have theirs taken Aug. 11.
All students will receive a class schedule the first day. A drop-add period of time will occur the first week of school only. At this time students can make changes with parent permission only. Seniors will be able to set an appointment up with Mrs. Jordan. She sent all the seniors a letter with this information. This is advisable for all seniors. Following is a calendar of important upcoming dates for parents and students:
Senior student/parent meeting July 29, 2014 7:00 PM
Junior/Sophomore student/parent meeting August 05, 2014 7:00 PM
Boys’ golf practice (Hollydot) August 04, 2014 TBA
A mandatory student/parent fall athletic meeting August 04, 2014 6:30 PM
Freshman first day of school/orientation August 07, 2014 1:00-7:00 PM
First day of school August 11, 2014 7:30 to 3:45
First day of practice (all other fall sports) August 11, 2014
It is recommended that all parents attend one of the above appropriate parent meetings. Online information packets must be completed prior to laptops being issued. Parents, if you are unable to attend any of the meetings, please make sure you complete the online information packet. Your student will not be enrolled or issued a computer until this packet has been completed.
Parents of freshman are welcome to attend the freshman orientation, which is the freshman’s first day of school. However, if you cannot be here, please plan on meeting at 5:00 PM to receive valuable information regarding your child’s high school years. A pot-luck will be at 6:00 PM, please bring a dish of your choice. Drinks, plates, and silverware will be provided. This is a very important meeting for the freshman students and parents.
Laptop insurance will once again be available to purchase in the amount of $50 or at a reduced rate for those who qualify.
