Two-Hour Delay Bell Schedule 

February 2021

Dear RPHS Parents and Families,

As February is upon us, our third marking period is now underway and many of our students are beginning their second semester courses.  The Rocky Point School District continues to advance its pursuit of providing more in-person activities for our students to benefit from.  We are proud to inform you that Rocky Point High School is now offering hybrid versions of extra help periods for both in-person students and virtual students to attend during our 9th period from 1:30 pm – 2:08 pm.  Most of our high school clubs and student councils will now run hybrid meetings (in-person and virtual) for all students to attend as well.  In addition to these engaging activities, all winter sports are now underway at the varsity and junior varsity level.  We encourage your child(dren) to take advantage of these extra help periods and enrich their days with the various extracurricular activities that our staff will offer both in person and on Google Meet simultaneously.  For further information, please see our 2020-2021 Club Guide posted on the left column of our RPHS web page or click the following link: 

At this halfway point in our 2020-2021 school year, it is important to review your child’s academic progress thus far. If you have not done so already, please see your child’s report card on the parent portal:  
The start of the second semester is a perfect opportunity to have a conversation with your child about their goals both in and out of the classroom. It is our hope that your son or daughter will take advantage of the various academic supports and extracurricular opportunities offered here at Rocky Point High School. 

 Our guidance counselors have visited classrooms these past few weeks to discuss the course guide and scheduling process for the 2021-2021 school year.  The process of selecting courses should be one in which there is collaboration among the school, the student and the parents.  It is important for students to select courses that match their needs, abilities, and interests.  Our building administration, faculty, and guidance team welcome any questions you may have concerning the course selection and scheduling process.  It is important for students to challenge themselves and work to achieve the most advanced diploma possible.  An email will be sent to parents in March with information on how to review your child’s course requests.

Finally, the high school is currently hosting a virtual “Battle of the Classes”.  Our Be A Nicer Neighbor (BANN) Club is sponsoring this event to increase school spirit, build upon class unity and raise some money for our local VFW.  Students from each grade level will be “battling” in a digital word search, Jeopardy, I-Spy, Pictionary and a scavenger hunt.  In conjunction with the virtual competition, the school is hosting a spirit week as well.   More details regarding the week can be found on each class advisor’s Google Classroom.

Notable upcoming events:
Monday 2/8- Friday 2/12 BANN Battle of the Classes/Spirit Week
Monday 2/15-Friday 2/19 Mid-Winter Recess
Friday 2/26 2021-2022 BOCES Applications Due to Guidance

Please stay healthy, keep warm and enjoy the mid-winter recess.

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!
