Thanks once again to our school staff and local law enforcement for protecting our schools. Staff discovered potential social media threats in neighboring counties overnight (2/20) that urged us to use extra caution today. While there were no direct threats to RRGSD, it is always our first priority to take every precaution necessary to provide a safe learning environment for our students. #KidsAreOurCustomers
Parents: Please be aware we have cases of flu, strep throat, and stomach virus in our community. We are taking every effort to see that your child is healthy while at school. We are wiping down desks throughout the day and doing extra cleaning after hours. We ask if your child has any of these symptoms, please keep him or her home until all symptoms are gone for 24 hours. If your child has a fever, please keep them home until the fever is gone for 24 hours without fever lowering medication. If you have any concerns over your child's health, please contact their medical provider. It's not too late to get a flu shot. The Halifax County Health Department has flu shots available from 8:30-4:00 pm. The phone number is 252-583-5021. #KidsAreOurCustomers
