R-H Senior Information

Randolph-Henry Senior Class Information

 The purpose of this communication is to provide assurance and information to the Randolph-Henry High School seniors and their families as they work to navigate the current closing of schools and the closure of their senior year. Randolph-Henry High School will be mailing letters home to each senior the week of March 30—April 3 regarding graduation status and other information pertaining to graduation items. Below is some information that seniors and their families may find helpful.

Based on communication from the Virginia Department of Education, seniors who were in good standing prior to March 13 in courses required to graduate will receive waivers for those requirements. We will be communicating individually with any student who may have additional requirements in order to be eligible for these waivers. There are no items that need to be submitted at this time.

With regards to a graduation ceremony, with all schools in Virginia currently being closed through the end of the academic year, there is not currently a clear date for graduation. However, we want to assure all seniors and their families that it is our intent to hold some form of graduation ceremony for the seniors at some point. Once we are given more clarity with regards to when gatherings such as a graduation ceremony will be allowed, we will be communicating a plan for recognizing the seniors.

We do not plan to hold a senior banquet at this time. Students who receive a scholarship will be notified by the organization or one of our counselors. We will recognize students receiving scholarships at graduation. The school will find a way to return any baby pictures that students submitted for the senior PowerPoint.

Graduation Items: Everyone who ordered graduation items through Herff Jones should have already received their items. If your student still needs graduation items, they can still order those online at www.herffjones.com. We also have some items (cap and gown, tassels, announcements) in the main office for sale.

Submission of ScholarshipsWe want to encourage all seniors to continue to work on scholarships to help fund their post-secondary goals.  The scholarship bulletin is available through this link https://tinyurl.com/ScholarshipsRHHS.  Please email Mrs. Kaylei Jones, senior counselor, at joneska@ccps.k12.va.us for any scholarship-related questions. 

 

Each scholarship should have information about how to submit it.  Many will have an address to mail it, but some will say to turn it in to Mrs. Jones.  Students can mail scholarships or drop them off during office hours at the main office.  Office hours are currently M/W/F 9:00—1:00. If students need a transcript for a scholarship that is to be submitted to Mrs. Jones, please put a note with the scholarship and she will include it for you.  If you need a copy of your transcript for other scholarships this can be requested at the main office but it helps if you call ahead.  Recommendation letters can be requested of teachers by email.

Senior Bios for Graduation Issue of the Newspaper: Mrs. Jones sent out the information about senior bios through the Senior Remind group on March 25.  You can email your responses to those questions to her at joneska@ccps.k12.va.us.

Join the Senior Remind Group: If you are not a member of the Senior Remind group, you can join by texting @rhclass20 to 81010 or by downloading the Remind App and using the code @rhclass20

College Transition and Financial Aid Information: Seniors needing assistance with college transition, application, or financial aid questions can contact Mrs. Jones or Mr. Ahmad Rudd, College Advisor, at ruddar@ccps.k12.va.us

Payment of School Debt: If your student still has debt to be paid off prior to graduation, please contact the school to set a time to pay that off.

We hope this helps to answer some of the questions surrounding graduation and end-of-year items for seniors. If you have any further questions, please contact Shep Critzer at 434-542-4111.
