September 2021

Dear RPHS Students and Families:

I hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful summer vacation and are ready for a new school year filled with many exciting learning opportunities.  As we are off and running in this new 2021-2022 school year, I am happy to report that our building is filled with positive energy and anticipation as we are all hoping for a year where academics and extracurricular activities thrive once again.  Although we are certainly taking precautions to provide a safe learning environment, we are optimistic that this school year will continue to evolve to include memorable experiences for our students both in and out of the classroom.  I am confident that our faculty and staff are ready to embark on a new journey with your children and promote the mission of our school.


The mission of Rocky Point High School is to empower our students

to be ready to learn, to be ready for life, and to have the courage to do what is right.


We will 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.  As you know, consistent student attendance and parental involvement in school activities are instrumental in a successful school year.  I encourage you to frequently engage your son/daughter in conversations concerning academics and extracurricular activities at RPHS.  Our TEAM at Rocky Point High School offers students many outstanding opportunities to learn, grow and expand as young adults throughout this school year.  It is our goal to create a unique “Rocky Point Experience” for your sons and daughters each day they come to school.


I am grateful to be working in a district with wonderful community involvement and in a school with a team of enthusiastic and dedicated teachers and support staff.   Our students are bright, talented, and ambitious. I ask that you encourage your children to strive to earn the most advanced diploma possible.  Students need to have a vision that includes goals and dreams.  Turning dreams into reality will take focus, determination, and discipline. We look forward to supporting your child throughout this school year as they strive to achieve their goals.

Positive Attitude and Actions will make a difference!
“Better happens when nobody’s watching.”

Stay to the right: -when you walk in the halls, when you drive in your car, and when you make decisions,
Always remember to do what is RIGHT!

Be polite: -use words like please, thank-you, and excuse me
-practice good listening techniques and develop patience

Keep it clean: -have pride in our facility; keep the building, the cafeteria and your lockers clean
-use clean language; using inappropriate curse words reflect your character

Lock it don’t lose it:
-you are responsible to spin the dial and lock your locker after each use
-cell phones need to be turned off and out of sight during the school day

Watch your web: -college admissions, coaches/recruiters and employers all search and review social media
-be conscientious of what you post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
-inappropriate, hurtful posts on social media that disrupt our learning environment will
result in disciplinary action

Dress your best: -clothing that is too revealing or distasteful is not acceptable
-school is where you work and learning is your job; your dress should reflect this

Nothing but nice: -comments don’t have to be mean or hurtful
-if criticisms are not constructive, please keep them to yourself until you are able to restate
them in a positive way

Enhance your transcript and résumé each day:
-your transcript is a reflection of your ability and work ethic; work towards the most
advanced diploma possible
-your résumé summarizes your character and leadership qualities including
extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, and employment
-student engagement is essential for learning; be accountable for your future

Attendance counts:
-attendance is a reflection of your commitment and work ethic
-students are required to be present for 8 periods each day
-no more that 28 absences for full year course or 14 days for half-year course

Promote Rocky Point Pride:
-get involved and support each other through academics, clubs, music, theater, and sports!
- be kind and promote acceptance; the character of the student body dictates the culture of
our school. Do your part to make Rocky Point High School the best we can be!

“Every moment of our journey is leading to something bigger. It’s up to you to read each
situation, make every decision, and control the flow of the game…..and your life!”
Dream Big!
