Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is wonderful that spring has arrived and increased hours of daylight are upon us.  It is important that our students remain focused on learning, as it is easy to become distracted with the nice weather and springtime activities.  Academic focus is important this time of year as third quarter grades are assigned and students begin to prepare for their year-end exams.  Thank you in advance for helping your children stay on course for a successful school year.

I would like to inform you of important changes regarding required health exams.  Beginning 7/1/18 all New York State public school students must have a health exam when they enter school in Pre-K or Kindergarten and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11.   In addition, all incoming 12th grade students must have proof of having been given Meningococcal vaccine in order to attend school.  Please call the high school health office at x-7515 if you have any questions.

Our guidance staff has been busy meeting with students regarding their selection of courses for the 2019-2020 school year.  It is important to speak with you r children about their goals and future plans so their educational schedules are aligned.  I encourage students to take advantage of the many elective classes that are offered to enrich their educational experience.  Your child’s course selection is available to view on the parent portal and you can request changes through an online form.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s guidance counselor.

Upcoming events at Rocky Point High School include:

April 1st  First day of the 4th marking quarter
April 2nd Thespian Dinner Show
April 4th Senior Citizen’s Prom

 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!
