IMPORTANT CHANGE TO SCHEDULE ORIENTATION

7/24/2019 9:50 am

Due to ongoing construction at Rice, the originally planned Schedule Orientation on July 31 has to be cancelled.  The new date for Schedule Orientation will be Tuesday, August 6.  This will be a time when students will be able to find their lockers, locate their classes, pick up spirit wear/school supplies/PE uniforms and get ready for the new year.  We are sorry for the inconvenience, but appreciate your patience and support while the building is being completed. 

 

Schedules will be released online on Friday, August 2, at 4:00, so students will be able to see their classes ahead of the schedule orientation.  Please bring a printed or digital copy of your child's schedule.  If you are picking up school supplies or other items ordered from PTA, please be sure to also bring a copy of your receipt.

 

The schedule for the August 6 Schedule Orientation is as follows:

6th Grade: 8:00 - 10:00

7th and 8th Grades: 11:00 - 1:00

 

We look forward to seeing you there!
