COVID SAFETY AT RHS


RHS is using a layered approach to COVID Safety. The building ventilation system brings in 100% of its air from the outside and classroom air is completely refreshed approximately seven times an hour. Students and staff are required to wear masks while inside the building unless eating or drinking. Seating charts are maintained for classes, and students are asked to use QR codes inside the building to indicate where they ate lunch each day to assist with any needed contact tracing. Students are encouraged to wash their hands frequently and to use hand sanitizer when needed. Finally, students are asked to maintain appropriate distance. We appreciate everyone’s efforts in implementing this layered approach.

REMINDER - UPCOMING ONLINE PRACTICE SAT!


Final reminder to sign up for Practice SAT. Registration closes on Wednesday, Oct 06, 2021.


Students with Accommodation for time are welcome to take advantage of this online practice exam offered for this Fall.


These full-length practice tests, administered by The Princeton Review, offer students the opportunity to practice test taking strategies and determine baseline scores prior to taking the official SAT and ACT college entrance exams. Scores are not reported to anyone other than the student.
