Principal's Corner

A Message From the Principal

I want to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! Our primary goal is to provide each RCHS student with an excellent education that serves the whole child. Each subject area has its own content standards from the State of Virginia that are taught, but even beyond those, we hope to provide your child with an education that allows for creativity, curiosity, and individuality. We have much to be proud of at Rappahannock County High School and I look forward to continued success this school year.

It is our desire to communicate with our families on a regular basis. Important dates and announcements can be found on the school’s website at www.rappahannockschools.us. Parents are strongly encouraged to sign up for a parent portal account. This account will allow parents to stay up to date with their child’s academic progress. If you have already signed up for an account previously then continue to use your username and password for that account. If you have never created an account then please speak with the Guidance Department about getting account information for your child.

I ask for your assistance in following our new visitor procedures. If you plan to visit the school during school hours please bring a driver’s license. Our receptionist will ask you to state your name and reason for the visit at the buzzer. As you enter into the enclosed portico area please go to the window to the right of the blue doors. From there the receptionist will assist you. A driver’s license is only needed if you plan to enter the building beyond the enclosed portico area during the regular school day. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Please read the handbook carefully as it outlines school procedures and practices. Give careful attention to the revised Student Code of Conduct which is a separate document this year. We want to have a safe, orderly, and productive school year and your support is greatly appreciated. Do not hesitate to call the school at any time with questions or concerns. I remain available to you.
