 The campus will be closed while students and teachers are on Thanksgiving break from Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24. Please make sure that students attend school Monday and Tuesday we will still have plenty going on in classes and attendance is important! On behalf of the faculty and staff at Rockdale High School, I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!

For those of you traveling to the football game tonight please be safe and cheer loud! Go Tigers!

Christmas Round-Up: The high school will support Christmas Round-Up by collecting items for the food drive. We will have bins in the office and all items must be received by end of day December 6th: 9th grade – canned chicken / 10th grade – cornbread mix (2 pkgs = 1 item) / 11th grade – instant potatoes / 12th grade – Ramen Noodles (6pkgs = 1 item). Students can donate 1 of each item for a service hour. Beginning 11/13 students may also turn in items to Mrs. Thomas to replace detentions (1 item) and Saturday School (3 items).

* Drivers Education: In the past Rockdale ISD and iTigers has contracted services for Driver’s Education due to changes with the provider and increased prices we will not be offering Driver’s Education classes this summer.
