On August 22, RRHS students in the Class of 2023 and parents/guardians of students in the Class of 2023 were sent a survey to consider a change of date for Commencement. The survey was sent in response to input we have received from parents/guardians, students, and staff asking for consideration to change the date of Commencement.
We received 221 responses to the survey which asked:
