Message from the Principal

High School & Middle School Phase II (10/22/2020)

Spanish High School & Middle School Phase II (10/22/2020)

October 2020

Dear RPHS Parents and Families,

I would like to start this letter by extending my sincere gratitude for your patience, cooperation and understanding throughout this past month as we transitioned our students and staff back into the high school. As the building principal, I am extremely proud of how all of our students and staff have responded throughout this entire month. Our staff communicated the many new adjustments that have been put into place this fall; and our students have followed their directions, and have adapted very nicely.

As September was a month where all of us were testing out this new hybrid and virtual learning experiment, October will serve as a month to implement some revisions, improvements and additions to our plan. Starting on Monday, October 5th, we will transition our full virtual and remote students from completing periodby-period attendance forms to a more streamlined, one-time daily attendance form to be found on grade level and cohort specific attendance Google Classrooms. An informative letter, directions and a frequently asked questions sheet was sent out through a “ConnectEd” message on October 1st.

Additionally, beginning on Monday, October 5th, the Rocky Point Athletics Department will be launching the start of voluntary, pre-season sports practices. Our student athletes will be given the opportunity to train with members of their own school cohort in the sport(s) of their choosing. Please look for more information on this new initiative from our Athletic Director, Charlie Delargy, and from our varsity and junior varsity coaches. These pre-season training sessions will be reserved for RPHS students only at this time. In addition to this, RPHS clubs and student government have been approved to begin virtual meetings using Google Meet. Students should look out for club/activity promotions on our advisor Google Classrooms and on our high school social media platforms. We encourage all of our students to get involved in these newly approved activities to further enrich the “Rocky Point High School Experience.” Our staff is very excited to get these groups together and to begin working with our students.

Finally, all of our RPHS students will be issued a North Shore Public Library card with which they will be able to access thousands of digital resources, book titles, audiobooks, as well as free online tutoring and SAT prep. Our library and media specialist, Jessica Sciarrone, will be assisting our students with this registration process. As you can see, there is much to be excited about in these upcoming months!

Quick Reminders:

Students will follow the “Virtual Wednesday” schedule should the school suddenly need to switch to a remote learning day.  Students will not be admitted into the building before 6:50 am

Virtual and remote students must log into all of their Google Classrooms and complete their assignments

When learning on remote days, students must complete their daily attendance forms before 10:00 am each day in order to get attendance credit

Students must attend the entire Google Meet sessions and show their screens in each of their assigned classes on Virtual Wednesdays  Please reach out to your son/daughter’s teachers if you have a question about a class.

Please reach out to your son/daughter’s guidance counselor if you have a general question about their academic program or a school-related issue.

I will continue to keep you informed of important information by posting news in the Virtual Backpack, ConnectEd messages, through our district website and on our @teamrockypointhighschool Instagram page. If you have not done so already, please follow us. For all information regarding your child(ren)’s grades, please check the parent portal. I look forward to continue working collaboratively with all of you.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Best Regards,

Jonathan Hart Principal
