We are continuing our focus on raising daily attendance for all students here at Rosemont High School! Our Chronic Absence rate, which reflects students who have missed at least 2 days each month, is at 18.8%. That’s over 250 students, which is unacceptable! Missing two days every month can keep a student off-track for Graduation! On the flip side, we had over 450 student who had perfect attendance during the month of October! Please make sure that your student attends school EVERY DAY, unless he or she is ill.
We learned on Friday that a student at our school were approached and threatened by several suspicious individuals. Although this reported incident occurred off campus and after school hours, I want to alert you of them so that you will make sure your student is cautious when walking to and from school or in the surrounding neighborhood. Law enforcement has been contacted about these incidents and is conducting a full investigation.
Beginning tomorrow, Friday, October 19th, we will no longer allow restaurant food deliveries to students. Parents may deliver food to students, but must come into the front office to do so. Students will not be called out of class. They must come to the office at the beginning of lunch to retrieve their food.
Thank you for reminding your student about this new policy. We made this announcement to students at the end of 6th period today.
PLEASE remind students to be extremely careful what they post on social media – especially anything that could be considered offensive to other people. We take this behavior very seriously, and several students were suspended for an offensive posting just last week. Take the time to discuss this important topic with your child.
On Friday, over 450 students received a certificate for perfect attendance for the month of September!! This is such a critical component of academic success, so we are very proud of all students who strive to be at school every day!
If you haven’t already filled out an LCFF form, please do so ASAP! This form is different from the lunch form we used to require. All students now eat free of charge, but we must still have an LCFF form for everyone. These forms determine school funding. For every student who does not turn in a form, the district loses approximately $2100. If you need another form, they are available in the front office.
Thanks to all of the families who attended Back-to-School Night! We truly appreciated meeting with all of you and hope you learned a lot about our academic programs. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns.

Due to a decrease in enrollment for the 2018-19 school year, we had to reduce by two teachers. Unfortunately, that necessitated a number of class changes. To minimize confusion on Monday morning, all students will receive a new class schedule in their first period class. They should check alphabetized lists on the library and cafeteria windows for their first period class, which may have changed. Thank you so much for your patience during this balancing process!

Prize drawing for students who are in attendance! Pre-registration is strongly encouraged to avoid lines.
We had a GREAT first of days of school! Students were well-behaved, respectful, and focused. During grade-level assemblies on Friday, we reviewed important grade-specific information and also discussed general expectations.
Students will receive the 2018-19 Student Handbook on Tuesday in their first period class, and teachers will review the entire handbook as students move through their classes.
