Lets Support Our Principal and his family 

Dear RCHS Family,

Some of you may know that there has been some illness and hospitalization in the Craft family. Those who were ill are recovering, but slowly. If you are able, please sign up to deliver some meals to our Principal’s home. They are a family of 5, and you can drop the meals off  at 250 Keyes Mill Rd., Buena Vista, or at the high school.

Molly Kay Moore has generously set up a meal train. Please sign up here: https://mealtrain.com/mnr496
As always, email us with any questions.

Thank you,

Tinni Sen, on behalf of the RCHS PTSA Executive Committee

“We certainly recognize that parents are anxious and looking for answers about how the school year will open in the fall. The fact that the information we receive changes almost daily from one or more of the agencies we collaborate with to ensure a safe return makes providing accurate information to families difficult at times.
While all of our information is subject to change due to the fluidity of this pandemic situation, we have developed a FAQ page that may be helpful to some of our parents.  The link for the FAQ is here: https://www.rockbridge.k12.va.us/Page/536  This document has many answers to some of the most commonly asked questions over the past few weeks.  It would be wonderful if you could help by encouraging parents to be patient and flexible as we continue to make changes and the situation evolves.
We are planning a Community Virtual Town Hall for August 13 at 6pm in which anyone in the community may participate. Here is the ZOOM link to the Community Virtual Town Hall: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84727442830?pwd=UTdDRmNjUGlUMFlwbGc1aWt3UE9yUT09   Please feel free to pass it along.
Also, we’ll be accepting questions ahead of time so that we can hopefully answer those more quickly and post most of them to our FAQ page.  If you have parents who would like to take part in this by submitting a question, here is the link to follow:  https://forms.gle/BH4LXu5gPh2tV2r86
Thanks to you and the rest of the RCHS PTSA for all you do to promote the wonderful things happening at RCHS.  Every new school year brings challenges.  There is no doubt this school year will bring far more.  We appreciate your partnership with RCHS in navigating these unchartered waters.”
