EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN

Roncalli High School works with local law enforcement officials continuously reviewing and updating our Emergency Preparedness Plan based on best practices learned from school experiences all across the country. Law enforcement has shared with us that a review of some school shootings shows that they have taken place during the time period in the morning prior to the start of school when students, teachers and staff are arriving on campus and entering the school. They (law enforcement) have recommended that we collect student cell phone numbers so that we can communicate directly with students if an emergency situation exists in the time period leading up to the start of school when we may have students in the parking lot, driving into school, etc.

LEARN MORE

NOTE: The school's only use of these numbers will be for emergency notification.

In the coming weeks, we are going to begin collecting students' cell phone numbers. Please notify Linda Simpkins in our IT department if you as parents do not wish for Roncalli to have your child's cell phone number.

LENTEN ALMSGIVING PROJECT

The Beginning Women’s and Beginning Mixed choirs will perform a free concert on Wednesday, February 27 at 7:00 PM in the auditorium.

Seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. Doors will open at 6:30. Come out and listen to some great music while supporting a worthwhile cause!

RONCALLI HIGH SCHOOL DRESS DANCE CODE

Romans 12:1-2 states, "I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect." In following the message of scripture, we aspire to honor God in everything we do, including our modest and dignified dress code at all school functions. The following requirements are the guidelines to ensure that every student dresses in a way to show the true beauty of the person.

LEARN MORE

Ladies:

  • FIT: The dress may not reveal all contours of the body while sitting, standing, or dancing.
  • LENGTH: The length of the dress should be no shorter than three inches above of the knee. In addition, no slit, opening, or cut in the dress should go beyond three inches above the knee.
  • CUT: Strapless or two-piece dresses are prohibited, and backless dresses may not be cut below the middle of the back. Dresses should not expose the midriff or cleavage.
  • MATERIAL: Any sheer, lace, or see-through material in the dress cannot expose areas such as the lower back, midriff (sides or front), cleavage, or the upper leg.

Gentlemen:

  • SHIRTS: Button down collared shirts must be worn with a bowtie or tie and remained buttoned at all times.
  • PANTS: Proper fitting dress pants must be worn with closed-toed shoes.

Any student that is violating the policy will not be allowed into the event until his/her attire meets the proper requirements.

If a male has a question about appropriate attire, they must seek input and advice from Mr. Banich. If a female has a question about a dress, they must talk with either Mrs. Bohn or Mrs. Armbruster before purchasing their attire.
