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
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
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.

and cafeteria windows for their first period class, which may
have changed. Thank you so much for your patience during this
