Return to School

We are so excited to welcome our Rose Hill Rockets back to school on September 8th.  This year is going to look a little different. Our 2020-2021 Return to School page is where RHES will post updates, reminders, and frequently asked questions regarding the start of the 2020-21 school year.

Welcome Back Letter from Admin

Dear Families,

We know how crucial the parent-teacher relationship is – now more than ever before. Should you ever have a question or concern, please reach out to your child’s teacher via email or call the main office and we will have the teacher reach out to you. Teachers have built in virtual meeting times at the end of each day Tuesday-Friday to meet with you and in addition that is when they can return phone calls. We also know that due to our current telework status, it is very easy to work non-stop. We are asking our staff to ensure that they find time to recharge in the evenings and on the weekends so that they can be fully present and their best selves for your students during the school day. This means that they may be stepping away from their FCPS email in the evenings and on the weekends.

We appreciate your patience and all the support and positive comments you have shared with us. Please know how much we value your partnership.
