Dear RPHS Students and Families:
The 2023-24 school year is well underway. While we continue to adjust to the nuances of the 9 period day, the building is buzzing with energy and optimism. I would like to thank our incredible Rocky Point PTA for donating the “Welcome Back” banners, balloons and decorating the walkways with words of inspiration for our students and staff. It truly made the building feel more inviting. Our new course offerings have been well received and we are looking forward to an incredible year!
While the arrival process is
still a work in progress, we have made adjustments to decrease the amount of
time it has taken to get into the building.
To date, we have excused students from being marked late to first period.
We appreciate your patience as the
process is streamlined. Moving forward, if a student arrives to school after 7:15AM, they should enter the
building at the RPHS main entrance, located in the front of the building. Those
students must check in with the attendance office before they report to
class. If the student has a senior
parking spot and arrives after 7:15, they should enter the building by the Gym
entrance and sign in with the monitor at that entrance.
This year, we plan to continue our focus on student engagement, academic growth and school pride and I would like to ask for your assistance in promoting these goals with your child. I cannot not emphasize the importance of maintaining good attendance throughout the year. The overwhelming majority of classes in a student’s course load are required for graduation, if a student exceeds 28 absences in a full year class or 14 in a half year class, the student will not receive credit, regardless of the grade in the class. This will likely impact graduation. Additional information related to the attendance policy can be found at: https://www.rockypointufsd.org/Assets/District_Documents/RPHS_Attendance_Policy_202324.pdf
A great way to keep your child engaged in school is to encourage involvement in as many school and extracurricular activities as possible. Be sure to monitor your child’s academic progress on the PARENT PORTAL and encourage them to monitor it themselves by checking the student portal. Do not hesitate to reach out to their teachers and counselors with any questions or concerns. Be sure to check the RPHS Club Guide located on the RPHS webpage to keep track of our numerous club offerings included in this link: https://www.rockypointufsd.org/Assets/District_Documents/ClubActivityGuide_2023-2024.pdf
During the first week of school, administration met with each grade level to review graduation, attendance requirements, as well as behavioral expectations. We reminded our students that hats, hoods and head coverings are not permitted in the building during the school day, per our district’s Dress Code. Due to safety concerns, we do not permit students to have earbuds in while they are traveling the hallways. We also reminded our students about the seriousness of bullying and the absolute intolerance on the district’s behalf for any type of hate speech or graffiti.

Lastly, an important
reminder for those of you who have children entering 12th Grade; under
NYS Public Health Law, students will not be permitted to attend school from September 19, 2023 until the proper
vaccination or documentation is recorded in our Health Office Students. All students entering Grade 12 in 2023 must have either: 2 doses of meningococcal
vaccine with the booster dose given on or after age 16 or 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine
if your child’s first dose was given on or after age 16. Please be sure make
sure your child has the required vaccines documented with the Health Office.
We look forward to supporting your child throughout this school year as they strive to achieve their goals. Here are some important upcoming dates for your convenience:
