Important: please be sure to enroll with Blackbaud and Smart Tuition now. Both of these systems will be the core tools for information gathering and dissemination as we get closer to the school year. Blackbaud will serve as a significant portal for many of the forms that we distributed in previous years via summer mailings and web pages and Smart Tuition will be used to access payment and account information throughout the school year.

If you require assistance enrolling in either system you may contact:
Greetings Husky Families,
 
We hope you are enjoying a summer of health and wellness, even if travel plans are a little more limited this year than usual. In last week’s Friday Letter, we detailed many of the upcoming initiatives and events on the way in the weeks ahead, and I hope you had a chance to join our Town Hall today to hear more. We continue in our readiness to pivot back to on-campus learning once the county comes off the Governor’s Watch List, but in the meantime we are generating programming and curriculum to make sure ALL of our students are able to find success, accomplishment, and growth as we start the year in distance learning.
 
Last Saturday, we had a chance at long last to celebrate Commencement Ceremonies for the memorable Class of 2020. It was certainly an RHP & Renaissance graduation unlike any other, but a great way to cite the individual and collective accomplishments of an impressive group. They are off to new adventures, new challenges, and new opportunities, as college choices were both near (USC, UCLA, El Camino, CSU Long Beach) and far (West Point Military Academy in New York, Colby College in Maine, Brandeis and Merrimack Universities in Massachusetts, Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, and University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa) and so many more. The full college list for the Class of 2020 can be found HERE. We will look forward to welcoming them back to campus in the years ahead as the distinguished Husky alumni that they have become.
 
Thanks again to all who joined our Town Hall today, and don’t hesitate to reach out in the days and weeks ahead as we continue to progress towards the start of the new school year. Please click the button below to view the recording of the Town Hall.
Sincere Best Wishes,


David
