Information for Parents Concerning Data Release
A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.  

Online Forms and Fee Pay
The district has developed a Parent Portal, where parents can go online to verify the directory information we have on file for their child(ren), make changes if necessary, and submit all beginning-of-the-year forms electronically (Emergency Medical Authorization, Internet/Email Use, Photo Permission, Junior/Senior Option, RRHS Student Parking, etc). This electronic submission takes the place of paper forms.  Access the Parent Portal here.

Safety Reminder During Street Construction
Dear Parents,
Road construction on Beach Cliff Blvd. behind Kensington may cause traffic congestion during morning drop off and dismissal times. We are encouraging everyone to utilize bus transportation when possible.  When dropping off or picking up students, please utilize Kensington Road or Falmouth Street.  We have a main entrance at the east gym door and south bus loop entrance.  Crosswalks are the safest areas for students to cross.

Dropping off or picking up children on the school side of the street is safest.  If you are dropping off or picking your child from the opposite side of these streets, we are encouraging parents to escort students across the street for student safety.
