Bus transportation to school for Regents Exams is provided in the MORNING ONLY.  Students should report to their regular bus stops at the same time they are picked up for school during the school year.  Bus transportation to school for afternoon Regents Exams is not provided.  Therefore, if parents are unable to provide transportation to school for an afternoon exam, students should take the morning bus to school and report to the cafeteria where they may study until the start of the afternoon exam.

I would like to wish you and your family a very happy and healthy summer, and I hope to see you at one of our end-of-the year events.

Sincerely, 

Susann Crossan, Principal

 


 Positive Attitude and Actions will make a difference!
“Better happens when nobody’s watching.”

Stay to the right: -when you walk in the halls, when you drive in your car, and when you make decisions,
Always remember to do what is RIGHT!

Be polite: -use words like please, thank-you, and excuse me
-practice good listening techniques and develop patience

Keep it clean: -have pride in our facility; keep the building, the cafeteria and your lockers clean
-use clean language; using inappropriate curse words reflect your character

Lock it don’t lose it:
-you are responsible to spin the dial and lock your locker after each use
-cell phones need to be turned off and out of sight during the school day

Watch your web: -college admissions, coaches/recruiters and employers all search and review social media
-be conscientious of what you post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
-inappropriate, hurtful posts on social media that disrupt our learning environment will
result in disciplinary action

Dress your best: -clothing that is too revealing or distasteful is not acceptable
-school is where you work and learning is your job; your dress should reflect this

Nothing but nice: -comments don’t have to be mean or hurtful
-if criticisms are not constructive, please keep them to yourself until you are able to restate
them in a positive way

Enhance your transcript and résumé each day:
-your transcript is a reflection of your ability and work ethic; work towards the most
advanced diploma possible
-your résumé summarizes your character and leadership qualities including
extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, and employment
-student engagement is essential for learning; be accountable for your future

Attendance counts:
-attendance is a reflection of your commitment and work ethic
-students are required to be present for 8 periods each day
-no more that 28 absences for full year course or 14 days for half-year course

Promote Rocky Point Pride:
-get involved and support each other through academics, clubs, music, theater, and sports!
- be kind and promote acceptance; the character of the student body dictates the culture of
our school. Do your part to make Rocky Point High School the best we can be!

“Every moment of our journey is leading to something bigger. It’s up to you to read each
situation, make every decision, and control the flow of the game…..and your life!”
Dream Big!
