End of the Year Information

Hello Panther Families and Congratulations!  As we all know, this school year has been unconventional and nontraditional in many ways, however, we are strong!  As we prepare to close out this school year, we want to ensure that all of the necessary information is received by our families.  

First and foremost, we want to thank each scholar, each family member, and each friend who continues to survive and provide so much support during this pandemic.  We are resilient and we will always rise above!

Congratulations to our Class of 2020 who will be celebrating the end of their high school journey this week at River Rouge High School.  We wish them the best on all of their future endeavors.  

For our Classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023, we hope that have completed the necessary work and requirements as this school year comes to a close.  Locker clean out was conducted last week and this week is the last week to complete all of your work . . . If you are completing Google Classroom work with your teachers, please make sure that all work is submitted online by this Friday, June 12.  For those students who have academic packets, these packets are due by this Friday, June 12 as well.  Some students have already been turning in packets to the school however, this Friday is the last day.  The high school office is open daily between 9am-1pm.  

If there are any questions, please let us know.  We will keep you informed as we have more information as it relates to summer school and the fall school year starting.  Again, we appreciate you, we miss you, and we cannot wait to see you!  Please stay healthy, stay home, and stay safe!

Hello Panther Families:

Happy Monday and Happy May to you!  Please read the reminders and updates for the high school.

As a reminder, academic packets are available at the high school today, Monday, May 4 and Tuesday, May 5 from 10am-3pm.  Academic packets are only for students who do not have access to the work on Google Classroom through a phone, tablet, computer, laptop, Xbox or Playstation.  Students do not need to do both.  This is also a time when students can drop off completed packets.  

Also, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week!  We are so thankful for our teachers and we hope that you and your child will join us in showing them our thanks.  

Finally, the high school office will now be open three days a week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 9am-1pm.  If there are any concerns or questions, please contact the main office.
