Two RPHS juniors won honorable mention awards in the 2013 Missouri Writing Region of the Scholastic Writing Awards Contest. Deja Sterling won the award for her poem, “I Have No Color.” Samantha Huffman won the award in the category of persuasive writing for her piece titled, “Contradictions: Exposing the Raw Character.” Both girls are students of Teacher Jeannie Frazier. Their pieces will be published in “Missouri Youth Write,” an online publication that will be available in June.
The following protocol is used to determine the use of bus transportation for students between the two high school buildings:
If the air temperature is not predicted to be at or above 20 degrees by 9 a.m., buses will be used for transportation. Icy conditions on sidewalks, parking lots, and the connecting road between the two buildings will also warrant the need for bus transportation. Wind conditions and possible wind chill concerns will also be taken into consideration and will be a discretionary decision of the administrative team. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the front office of either building at (816) 892-1400 or (816) 892-1550.
