It's Time to Signup for Dual Enrollment!
Jumpstart2College, the Dual Enrollment Partnership with Crafton Hills Colleges, provides students the opportunity to take college courses on RUSD high school campuses for FREE. All courses are transferable to Community Colleges, UCs, and CSUs, and earn students both college credit and high school elective credit. (ART 124, however, also counts toward a student's high school graduation fine arts requirement because it is taught by an RUSD high school art teacher.)

Athletic Academic Support
If you are a student athlete and are in need of academic support then come see Mr. Norman in room R-34 at the times listed. I have almost every textbook available in my room and access to laptops. It is a great time to catch up on make-up work, study for exams, or get help on assignments.
In R-34 with Mr. Norman*
- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday during 6th period (we will arrange a best day with your coach)
- Wednesday and Thursday at Lunch
*Mr. Norman is a RHS math teacher but is willing and able to provide help in all subjects. Tutors can be arranged.
If your student is sick for more than two days or you know he/she will be out for more than two days, you may contact Mrs. Avila the Counseling Office Clerk at ext. 30141 to request homework. It is most effective to email the teachers directly with a cc: to the student's counselor.
If you know your student will be out for an extended period of time in advance, please contact Mrs. Ridgeway to complete paperwork for Short-Term RISE. She can be reached at ext. 30104.
