“Students and families, during the current COVID situation staff are working from home and are not able to check their office voicemail on a daily basis. For best results, please email your student’s counselor with questions and concerns. Keep in mind that it may take some time for a response due to the extremely high volume of messages. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding as we work with you to ensure the best possible outcome for your students.”
Welcome Back Knights!
Hope everyone had a great and safe summer! I have attached the infamous Schedule Change Form for your use (it is in PDF so fields are fill-able). As we all know the start of this year is NOT traditional which will cause some of our practices to be altered a bit, such as this form. You do not need teacher signatures (as this is not possible) but we do need evidence of parent approval via email. Please know that "Preference" changes are not being honored with this form as they have been in previous years. Due to scheduling restraints the changes that will be honored are for example:
1. Student scheduled in a class successfully passed in Summer School 2. Level changes - ex. IM-1 to IM-2 or vice versa 3. IEP or Program Changes (relating to Special Education students)
RLHS hosted a College Fair for nearly 600 seniors in the Twin Rivers Unified School District. The students had an opportunity to meet with representatives from public and private colleges throughout California.

Advanced Education students may enroll in up to two (2) Los Rios college courses during any semester or summer session. And the normal enrollment fee of $46 per unit is waived for Advanced Education students enrolled in these courses who are California residents and for certain non-residents.

The Advanced Education Application includes more detailed information on fees, program eligibility, guidelines and restrictions.
Submit an official high school transcript, or official record of completed coursework and achievement levels
Meet with a Los Rios college counselor for approval
Submit appropriate college assessment results, when applicable, to ensure a prerequisite level and/or appropriate class placement
Find your enrollment date and time on the District's eServices student services portal, and then register in-person at the college where your enrollment has been approved.
