Active Parent

Richton School District parents with more than one student can access records for all them with one account. The goal of ActiveParent is to provide parents and guardians the ability to monitor student’s Grades, Attendance, Behavior, and Course Performance. ActiveParent provided student information as soon as it is entered into SAM (Student Administration Manager).

ActiveParent can be accessed by clicking the picture above or go to: http://ms5620.activeparent.net

Please contact the Elementary or High School Office for signup information.

RJH/RHS Students

With rainy weather a daily event, our new process for mornings when it is raining or below 35 degrees will be for students to eat breakfast and then report to their first period class.

Any students caught roaming around will face disciplinary action. This is an effort to keep students in smaller groups and to keep Jr. High and High School separated, instead of just sitting in the auditorium with many opportunities for horseplay.

Visitors on Campus

EVERY VISITOR TO OUR CAMPUS MUST SIGN IN AT THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE UPON ENTERING THE SCHOOL CAMPUS TO OBTAIN A VISITOR’S PASS.

Visitors must be approved by administration before being given a visitor pass to wear while on campus. Anyone who fails to comply with this policy is subject to being reported to local law enforcement authorities. NO teacher will allow you to enter his/her classroom to speak to a student without a pass. Students from other schools will not be allowed to visit our classes. When parents/guardians go to school to check out their children, they will have to wait in the office; they will not be permitted to visit the child’s classroom or hallway. No visitors will be permitted in school hallways unless teachers on that hallway are notified in advance by the school secretary.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POLICY. We must make every effort to enforce this rule.  It is the responsibility of this school to protect you children, so we must have your full cooperation in this matter.
