GOOD FRIDAY PRAYER SERVICE & SCHEDULE

Roncalli High School will hold its annual Good Friday prayer service on Friday, April 19, beginning at 11:00 AM in the RHS Family Room.

In years past the public has always been invited to this prayer service, but given our serious parking challenges this year due to construction we do encourage people to seek out another Good Friday prayer this year. We will be excited to welcome our guests back in 2020 when next year's Good Friday prayer service is held in our spacious new gym with ample parking.

Dismissal time for Roncalli students should be at approximately 12:30 PM.

Our all school Good Friday prayer service is a special time for our students, teachers and staff members to be in prayer together. We respectfully ask that parents not request for their student to leave RHS prior to our prayer service. If the need does arise for a parent to make this request, they will be required to send a note with their child ahead of time and come into the school building and sign out their child. For legal reasons, students will not be allowed to sign themselves out nor will parents be able to sign out students other than their own children.

Thank you for your assistance in making this a holy time of prayer for all of our students, teachers and staff.

TWO SCHOOL CALENDAR CHANGES

All of the changes the state has put in place with the graduation required ISTEP test for sophomores has led us to make two changes to our school calendar for April when this test is administered. Given the length of these tests and their importance to the students, we feel it best to utilize a delayed start for the rest of the school on two days and use this time for administering the ISTEP test to the sophomores (and any juniors/seniors still needing to retest). Thus, the following changes have been made to the school calendar:

  • April 8 - School will start at 9:30 AM: All sophomores will report to school at the regular time of 7:30 AM.
  • April 15 - School will start at 9:30 AM: All sophomores will report to school at the regular time of 7:30 AM.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes our families but we feel strongly that this not only provides our students who are testing the best environment but also provides the best use of instructional time for all other students as well.

RONCALLI HIGH SCHOOL PROM DRESS CODE

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.
