School Opening Information for September 2016 – We are starting our 50th Year

As the fall and new school year approaches, parents and guardians are asked to note the following:

Supply List – To help ensure that your child’s year gets off to the correct start, parents should view the link Junior High Supply List 2016_2017. This list can also apply to senior high students. If you are in a position to supply these items, it will certainly help your child get off to a flying start in the fall.

If it helps, please know that having a Cell Phone is NOT required. In fact, we will be looking to discourage the bringing of these devices to school. If a student needs to call home, they will be permitted to use the phone at the office between classes, at recess and lunch as in the past. Cell Phones are now the number one distraction for students in school and are not needed for class. A calculator is needed for Math, Science and testing. Cell phones will NEVER be permitted to be used as a calculator.

Bus Route Changes – The contractor for Roncalli Central High has changed. The number of actual bus routes has also been reduced from 8 to 5 routes. The new bus route descriptions are available by clicking the link New Bus Routes for Roncalli Central High 2016. Please note the start time for each run and gauge your wait times accordingly.

Opening Day and Week – All students will return to school on Wednesday, September 7th as per the schedule below:

  •  Grade 7, 8, & 9, will come in from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM. Bus runs will begin about 8:10 AM. Please gauge wait times accordingly.
  •  Level I, II, & III, will come in from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Bus runs will begin at about 10:10 AM. Please gauge wait times accordingly.

Junior high students will be returning home at 11:00 AM and Senior High students will be returning home at 1:00 PM.

Thursday and Friday, September 8th and 9th, will be full days of regular classes. Thursday will be Day 2 on the schedule.

FINALLY, with our 50th year on the horizon, we are certainly expecting an exciting year. We ask everyone to check back to this page in late September as we will be forming a committee to plan celebrations to mark this significant milestone during the summer of 2017.
