Principal Rogers' Updates
Welcome Rogers-Herr family and friends! We appreciate you taking the time to visit our website. Please mark your calendars and note the following upcoming events and reminders.
Adult Party; RHMS PTA Fundraiser, 8/31
Grownups, please join us for a casual affair to support Rogers-Herr Middle School on Fri, Aug 31, 9pm - 1am, at Carmen's Cuban Cafe, 108-D Factory Shops, Morrisville. Get tickets now for $15 at this link, or pay $20 at the door. RHMS staff can get in with just $10 & their school ID.
Renew PTA Membership
Your dues helped the Rogers-Herr PTA provide the following resources last school year:
- Novels for every child for One Book, One School
- 38 Chromebooks
- Monthly Staff Appreciation Luncheons
- Grants for the Faculty
- Gift cards for classroom resources
- The Spring Fling
- The 8th Gr. Promotion Breakfast
Instruction always begins promptly at 7:30am. Students arriving after 7:30am will report to the main office to sign in and receive a tardy pass to class. Parents, we depend on you to ensure that your child arrives daily between 7-7:15am (doors open at 7am). This gives them enough time to get acclimated to the school environment each morning before instruction begins. Otherwise your child will miss part of class and may feel rushed.
Unless they plan to eat breakfast, our 6th graders should go to the gym first thing every morning. 7th & 8th graders should head to the cafeteria regardless of their breakfast plans. Parents who plan to drive their child should drop kids off in the carpool line in the lot in front of our school, allowing them to enter independently. Teachers will be ready to receive and help every child.
Early Pick-Up Safety
Classes end daily at 2:20pm. For student safety, no transportation changes, including early pick-ups, will be honored from 1:45-2:20pm. Parents, please do not pick your child up from school on a routine basis before 1:45pm because it is important that they do not miss instruction. Thank you in advance for your understanding. We regret any and all inconveniences this policy may cause. Student safety will always be our highest priority.
To prioritize safety, team populations must remain balanced. That is why requests for team changes will not be approved. It may be necessary for us to make some class schedule adjustments, but all schedules will be finalized by Fri, Jul 27. To request an elective change, complete a Schedule Change Form and give it to Ms. Richmond in the main office by Fri, Jul 20. Approvals will only be granted based on seat availability.

On school days, our doors open for students at 7am and the instructional day begins promptly at 7:30. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 7-7:20am. Students arriving after 7:30am go directly to the main office to sign in, get a tardy pass, and then go to class.
Car riders and bus riders are dismissed at 2:20pm, which is when the instructional day ends. Attendance is very important and contributes to student success. We depend on parents to ensure that our students are present and on time every day.

Re-Link Shopping Cards!
Did you know that last year we raised over $2,400 for our school by just linking our shopping cards at Target, Kroger and Harris Teeter to our school? All you need to do is go to customer service at your local Kroger or Harris Teeter and ask that they link (or re-link) your shopping card to our school. Both rewards programs run Aug–May each year and you MUST re-link your card to our school ID each year. Our Kroger School ID is 94484 and our Harris Teeter School ID is 3646. Our PTA can link your Harris Teeter card for you. Just email your last name and your HT card number or the phone number associated with your HT card to Susan Roux at email@example.com. We will do the rest!
