The RISD Council of PTAs Clothes Closet provides clothing for RISD students in need so they can feel comfortable, confident and ready to learn! Students are referred to the Clothes Closet by their school counselor or nurse, and receive a full wardrobe of clothes. The Clothes Closet accepts donations of clothing, sizes 3T to adult XXL, that is cute, current and free of holes, stains or much wear and tear. The Clothes Closet also accepts well-loved clothing and textiles, but that should be placed in 

 a separate bag and boldly labeled "World Wear".

ICYMI (in case you missed it):

 

Principal Jones shared more information about the implementation of Yondr pouches for students for the 23-24 school year. Yondr pouches are soft pouches that hold cell phones and seal magnetically. Their intended purpose is to help our staff manage RISD’s student cellphone by limiting student cellphone usage during the school day. To read more, check out Mrs. Jones' message here!

  • has an IEP or a 504 Plan
  • has any disability or health diagnosis impacting them at school 
  • is taking a GT course, or has received GT services at any point in the past (including REACH or past GT courses)

The mission of SAGE is to provide support, education, and advocacy for the families and educators of SAGE students.  Please join us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/lhhssageparentcommunity/ and please e-mail Emily at emilykvr@gmail.com with any questions.  Thank you for supporting SAGE needs and SAGE educators at LHHS!

 

 

See Something, Say Something

 

RISD High School Students and Parents,

 

This message is a reminder that the safety of our school, classmates, and employees is a responsibility shared by everyone. If you see or hear something that potentially threatens the safety of anyone at school or about a classmate who may be in crisis, please say something to teacher, administrator, parent, or trusted adult.

 

Sometimes a person would prefer to report something anonymously, and for those situations, our school provides a system called Anonymous Alerts. Readily available through the high school homepage, RISD’s Safety & Security website, and bookmarked on every student Chromebook, Anonymous Alerts allows a person to make an anonymous online report about any situation that potentially impacts the safety or well-being of our school, any student, or any employee. All Anonymous Alerts reports are investigated by RISD, and if necessary, by police.

 

Please remember, situations that are true emergencies should be reported to 911, or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

 

Thank you for taking a moment to think about the safety of our school and to be prepared to say something if you see something.

Library Services - Did You Know? 

RISD Library Services offers updated Select Title Opt Out options to provide parents with an opportunity to identify specific titles to opt out of library checkout for their child. RISD recognizes that families and students are unique, and different parents may have varying expectations regarding their students’ reading lives and choices.
Parents who would like to opt their student out from access to specific titles can do so by contacting their school Library Information Technology Educator or visit the LITE website for more information or to sign up.
