Parents of freshmen and incoming new students are invited to a parent orientation program in the auditorium from 8:30 am – 9:30 am.  During this program, parents will be welcomed by the RHHS administration and athletic director who will share information about the school and extra-curricular activities. They will also learn what they might expect from their transitioning students: physically, emotionally, and academically. Additionally, current and previous RHHS students will share their experiences successfully navigating high school and then answer questions.  The program will close with practical information about how to be involved in students’ education and extra-curricular activities.
