District Announcements

  • Parents and students,
    I am only 10 days away from submitting our 2020 RGHS yearbook. You can still order a yearbook online by April 10 by going to:
    ID 10206520
    And type in the students name and grade
       If you received a discounted yearbook and have not yet ordered, do not order one online because it will make you pay the full $50.00. Please send me an email at ccohlhepp@vgsd.org to let me know that you want one and I will order it and you can pay for it when you pick it up. I am not sure when the yearbooks will be delivered. If anyone has any questions or concerns please email Mrs.Cohlhepp. 
    Thank you and stay safe,
    Chris Cohlhepp 
    Yearbook advisor

  • Governor Wolf Announces Closure of Pennsylvania Schools

    Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that all K-12 Pennsylvania schools will be closed for 10 business days effective Monday, March 16. The administration has been working with school districts as well as state and local officials to gather input on this decision. The Wolf Administration will continue to monitor Covid-19 in the commonwealth, and at the end of 10 days will reevaluate and decide whether continued closure is needed.

    Governor Wolf made the following statement:

    We understand that these are trying times and recognize the impact of the coronavirus on our students and communities.

    First and foremost, my top priority as governor – and that of our education leaders – must be to ensure the health and safety of our students and school communities.

    As such, I am ordering that all schools in the commonwealth close for the next two weeks.

    Be aware that no school district will be penalized if it fails to meet the 180 day or school hours requirements.

    The Department of Education will work with intermediate units and other stakeholders to support school districts with any continuity of learning plans they may be pursuing.

    Also, the Pennsylvania Department of Education announced today that it received a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to allow eligible schools to serve meals to low income students in a non-congregate setting, such as a drive-through or grab and go, during this closure. We will also work with schools to assist them with those plans.

    We appreciate your collaboration as we work together to deal with this difficult issue.
