Return to School

Hello High School Scholars and Families:

We are 1 week away from the return to school for our Fall 2021 semester.  It has been some time but we look forward to celebrating having our scholars in school.  As a reminder, we look forward to seeing our students on Tuesday, September 7th for the first day back to school!  We will follow all safety measures but know that learning in person benefits our scholars on many levels.  

Please find the presentation video for the Return to School Plans for high school.  You can access the video via the link below.

In addition, we have attached the following helpful information: Return to School presentation, Bus routes, and Office/Administrative contacts. 9th-10th grade students will enter the Auditorium door and 11th-12th grades will enter the Main door.  Schedules will be available on Student Connect as well as on the first day of school at their respective doors.  

We anticipate an amazing school year this year and appreciate your partnership!

Welcome Letter 2021-22

Greetings High School Scholars and Families: 

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.  We are excited to welcome our scholars back for an amazing year of teaching and learning at River Rouge High School.  We have missed you and cannot wait to see you!  To our newest Class of 2025 welcome to the high school family. 

After the last year of functioning in a fully virtual and then hybrid setting, we are excited to return to five full days of in-person instruction in the building.  Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic we will continue to follow safety protocols and guidelines.  

This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to provide a chance for scholars and families to “Re-Engage and Refocus”.  We will continue to provide amazing opportunities through our academic class offerings, after-school events and clubs, district-wide events, and new program initiatives such as our new Meta24 program.  Meta24 is an opportunity for scholars to engage in 21st century learning labs such as Entrepreneurship, Personal Care, Fashion, Multimedia Production, Graphic and Industrial Design, Gaming and Coding.  

I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to welcoming our scholars back into the building.  We will continue to work collectively with our scholars and families to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared to be successful in their endeavors after high school.  The River Rouge High School family is committed to taking care of our scholars’ academics, as well as social-emotional and mental health wellness.  

Please join us for our Return to School Orientations at the high school which take place on Monday, August 16 from 10am to 1pm for our 9th and 10th graders and Wednesday, August 18 from 9am to 11am for our 12th graders and 1pm to 3pm for our 11th graders.  We also invite you to join us for the Backpack Giveaway on Friday, August 27 from 10am to 1pm. 

We look forward to an amazing year of re-engaging our scholars and partnering with our families!  

Educationally,

Mrs. Michelle Kyles

Principal
