RHS-RGS Tutoring Survey

The RHS Leadership Service Team and PTC (Parent Teacher Club) are working together to create a tutoring service with Riverdale Grade School. The goal is to have consistent tutoring sessions for grade school students, taught by high school students. This survey is going to determine how many RHS students would be willing to take part in this service opportunity.

Immunization and exemption data

Twice a year, schools must report the immunization and exemption rates for their students. We have posted our preliminary rates on the immunization page on the district website, and these will be updated after Immunization Exclusion Day in February. If you have not yet submitted your student's immunization records, please submit them to the school office as soon as possible.
