To clarify, the district has access to a new grant program that will give you free internet at home using a hotspot. If you replied to the survey that you had reliable internet access, but are using your smartphone data, the hotspots will be made available to you so you don’t have to use phone data. You’ll receive 3 gigabytes of data per month plus additional data at a slower speed...all at NO cost to you or your family. These hotspots will allow you to complete class assignments away from school using a district Chromebook. The hotspots will however have the same filtering capability that we have on campus.

Principal Tammie Williams and Coach McDaniels presented his family with a plaque. Earl's impact reached far beyond the Yellow Jackets’ gridiron where he earned the respect and camaraderie of the many graduates of the district and as a mentor to many young people, leaving a legacy of dedication and devotion to his alma mater as the “man with the mic" and the "Voice of the Yellow Jackets". #JacketPride
All this year our students will be looking for ways to "Be the Change" they want to see in the world. Our RRHS HOSA and Life Skills classes will be collecting donations over the next couple of weeks for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. We're specifically collecting school supplies and baby items. #bethechange #servewithpassion
