The high school's new tardy procedure is pretty simple: "The school day begins at 7:30 AM daily. Students will be considered tardy to school/class if they are not in class when the tardy bell rings" it begins.
The tardy procedure goes hand-in-hand with another change this year that makes it even more critical that students arrive at school on time: first period begins at 7:30 AM. Homeroom will be held between first and second periods. If a student comes to school late, he or she will be missing the beginning of first period. [read the rest of the tardy procedure here - PDF]
The dates and times are as follows:
Monday, August 10 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Tuesday, August 11 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm
Wednesday, August 12 from 8:00am -12:00pm (the school doctor will be in to provide physicals and conduct physical maturity tests for Advanced Placement Process)
All exams will be held in the HS Health Office.
Herbicide was applied early Friday afternoon - July 31 - to the high school football/soccer field. The purpose of the herbicide application was to re-establish a healthy, dense grass surface for the safety of student-athletes.

RCS employees will be striping the fields today - Tuesday, Aug. 4 - and a football camp is expected to begin on Wednesday, Aug. 5.
Proper notice was given to parents, students, staff, neighbors and those individuals who have previously requested such notice. [read the notice here - PDF]
