  • ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • The correlation is evident:

    • Students who attend the daily Google Meets and live lessons achieve substantially higher academic results. On the contrary, inconsistent attendance and participation correlate with inconsistent academic results. 
    • Students who seek support & engage with their teachers see grades increase.

    • Students who consistently follow a daily schedule/routine have better academic performances than students who do not.

    • Please see our RHS Distance Learning Helpful Tips

    Speech Team is starting soon!!!
    The Speech Team is an extra-curricular activity with components of drama, debate, and other activities, all with a fun twist. If you would like to improve your skills in performance, presentation, reading or writing, or just want to be in an activity built around supportive fun, this could be for you. There is no speaking in front of large groups or anything scary, just small groups speaking and performing with and for each other. It is a very safe, enjoyable activity. If you would like more information, please fill out this form and we will be in touch. This is not registration, it just gets you on the email list.

    Covid-19 Updates 

     

    Continue to report positive Covid Cases:  We continue to need to have you report all positive Covid-19 cases to your school’s health office or on this link.  We will need to have the positive documentation on record for when we return to school and activities.  Please note: Once you have had a positive Covid-19 test, you do not need to be quarantined if you are a close contact of a COVID-19 positive case for 90 days (3 months) after you are released from isolation.  

     

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q:  Why do we need to quarantine if we feel good and have tested negative? 

    A:  COVID-19 spreads easily from person to person, so that is why health experts recommend avoiding large crowds and busy places, and staying at least 6 feet away from people you don't live with. When the Minnesota Department of Health guidelines require quarantine for someone, it is because the person has been exposed to the virus. In this situation, the person could be infected and could spread the virus, even though they feel well. 

     covid


    Q:  If my family hasn’t gotten flu shots this year, should we still get one?

    A:  Yes, getting a flu shot this year is particularly important because, like Covid-19, influenza is a respiratory virus and we want to do everything we can to minimize having two respiratory outbreaks circulating simultaneously in our populations.

     

    Anytime you get together with people who do not live with you, even in someone’s home, the risk of getting Covid-19 goes up for everyone.

     

    Stay safe!

    When you hear the word “apprentice,” what do you think of?

    Do you think of medieval times with knights and blacksmiths in training hammering hot metal swords on an anvil? Or do you think of Jedi Knights in Star Wars training padawans?

    While the term apprentice is oftentimes referenced in historical or fantasy books and movies, the pathway to becoming an apprentice in the field of construction is a very real and legitimate form of education and training that sets young people up for a lifetime career.

  • RHS STORAGE SHEDS

  • Out of Storage Space? Let the RHS Construction students help you!

     Sheds for sale    

    Purchase the shed material from the local home improvement store of choice and let the RHS Construction program erect the building.  To meet curriculum requirements, shed dimensions are 8' wide x 12' deep or 10' wide x 12' deep.  Both have 8' high walls that offer over 750 cubic feet of storage space.  Each shed includes a 36" x 36" vinyl-clad window and a 6' x 7' steel roll-up garage door providing ample light and a door large enough for your riding lawn mower, patio furniture, and other seasonal items.  Textured, pre-primed LP SmartSide, and cedar trim allow the owner to paint or stain using your chosen color. The owner selects the color of architectural roof shingles and other finish/material options available. New shed construction will begin in early February 2021 at the start of the Construction course.
