The activity bus typically runs at 4:00 pm after school Monday-Thursday. Students are required to obtain a Daily Activity Bus Pass from their teacher, coach or advisor to ride the activity bus. Activity buses do not follow the regular bus routes but will bring the students within the general area of their home.
All students are asked to leave the building once the school day ends. Students who are staying after school for school work or school-related activities must be supervised. For safety reasons, any unsupervised students in the building after the 3:00 pm bell will be asked to leave the building. School consequences may be assigned to students who continue to violate this school policy.
Bus transportation is a service provided by this school district for the convenience and comfort of those students not living within walking distance of the school. Contact District Transportation for rider eligibility (651-635-1638). Bus transportation should be considered a privilege. Regulations for student behavior on school buses are sent to residents of our school district by the Board of Education. Deliberate violation of bus safety rules may result in the loss of bus privileges.
Lunch accounts are prepaid accounts. No cash will be accepted during lunch. Lunch money can be handed in at the breakfast line by 8:05 AM or dropped off in the white Lunch Money Box inside the Student Support Services office before 9:30 AM to be entered into the account before lunch. Put first and last name of student and grade in the memo area of the check. One check may be used for all family members but all students' names and grades must be on the check.
A menu is posted at the entrance to the cafeteria. Students are also offered a variety of specialty items (salad bar, hamburger/sandwich line, pizza, etc.).

Roseville Area Schools provides equal educational opportunity for all learners. The school district does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of gender, home or first language, ability, race, age, socioeconomic status, religion, physical appearance, sexual orientation, or national origin. In compliance with the law, procedures have been established for resolving complaints alleging discrimination in these areas. Any person who feels they have been discriminated against is encouraged to follow reporting procedures. Copies of the policy and the regulation are available in the Principal’s Office and at the Roseville Area Schools District Center.
There will be no effort of censorship on the part of RAHS staff. Each RAHS staff member will communicate with respect and the students will be expected to do the same. Students will be encouraged to use speech and written expression as a respectful means of communication. Students who use profanity, disrespectful slang, or graffiti will be asked to correct the behavior.
All students will have their picture taken by Lifetouch for the purpose of having a picture in Synergy as well as a student ID.

Lost and stolen cards are replaced for a $5 fee and can be paid for with cash or check
Your student will be issued a school iPad for academic use.
Each year, families are asked to purchase $30 iPad insurance through our Affinety system. Students who qualify for educational benefits are automatically enrolled and covered by iPad Insurance. No action is needed. Review details of the insurance coverage at www.isd623.org/digitallearnWhen students pick up their school-issued iPad, they are agreeing to follow the district’s expectations for student iPad use as found in the 1:1 iPad Program Family & Student Guide. You can review it at the iPad Program website: www.isd623.org/digitallearn
This site will also contain all information related to the 1:1 program including goals, policies, behavior expectations, and more.

Roseville Area Schools is committed to providing learning and work environments that are healthy and safe for all students and staff. To this end, all district schools and instructional support facilities have been designated as ‘latex-reduced environments.’ The following guidelines are in place at all district schools and instructional support facilities:
- Latex balloons are restricted from Roseville Area Schools for the protection of students and staff who have latex allergies. They contain large amounts of latex residue and, therefore, carry the most danger for allergic reactions.
- Latex products of all kinds have been removed from health offices.
- The district will make every effort to order latex-free products (natural rubber products).
In areas such as Science classrooms, latex equipment may still be in use because latex free alternatives are unavailable. If a student has a known latex allergy, latex will not be used in that classroom.
We continue to develop awareness of other latex products that are being used in our schools. We either replace them with latex free alternatives, or if replacements are not available, we focus on reducing the use of these products.
School lockers are the property of District 623 and are loaned to students for their use. School officials have the legal right to access lockers and search them at any time, for any reason, and without notice. Students are to use only the locker assigned to them. Students are not to share their combination or locker with another student and are responsible for their own possessions. The school will not assume responsibility for lost or stolen articles. School insurance does not cover personal loss or theft. Valuables and money should NOT be brought to school nor kept in lockers.
For safety and security, locks are required on each hall and physical education locker. Locks may be purchased during Back to School Open House for $5. It is expected these locks be used for the entire high school experience and are the possession of the student. Students enrolled in physical education will need two locks – one for the hall locker and a red lock for the P.E. locker. Locks will be on sale from your physical education teacher as well as the Student Support Services office after orientation. If the location of your locker is a problem, please see the Student Support Office.
Only school issued padlocks may be placed on high school lockers. We will not make refunds at the end of the school year.
Athletic lockers and lock combinations are assigned by the equipment manager. The assignments are for the sport season only.
The media center is open Monday -Thursday from 7:00 am - 4:00 pm and Friday from 7:00-3:00 pm. Students have access to technology during this time. Staff are also available to students to provide academic tutoring.
Books may be checked out for four weeks. Reference materials, calculators, and laptops (for word processing) may be checked out OVERNIGHT and must be returned to the media center before first hour the following school day.
All permits are issued through the Activities Office. All fines must be paid from the previous year before a new parking permit is issued. Students will purchase the parking permit online via FeePay. Students will not be able to purchase a parking permit if they have fines or fees.
Students who receive parking permits must observe the following rules. Violation of any of these rules and any school rule may result in the forfeiture of the parking permit. There are no refunds.
- Student parking is allowed in only designated spaces painted blue to indicate student parking. Students who park in the staff spaces or other non-designated areas may have their cars booted or towed at their expense.
- All students driving to school must have their valid parking permit affixed to the vehicle. Vehicles without a permit will be booted or towed at their expense.
- The school does not carry liability insurance to cover damage or theft of student, staff, or visitor’s vehicles and/or contents.
- Any unreasonable speed or reckless driving on or near school premises may be reported to the police liaison officer and will likely result in the suspension of parking privileges.
- Students are not to be in the parking lot or cars during school hours without permission from an administrator.
- The parking permit cannot be transferred or sold to anyone else. The student for which the permit is issued is liable for violations under that permit number.
- Student parking is a privilege not a right. Students may lose their parking permit as a result of not following school rules. There are no refunds.
Parents/Legal Guardians: Please encourage your student/s to use our district transportation and be familiar with parking regulations and procedures.
Protective drills are conducted several times throughout the school year. Each classroom will have a sign posted telling the students where they should report for tornado and lockdown emergencies, and how they exit the building for evacuation drills (fire, gas leak, broken water main, electrical outages, etc.). All drills are serious matters and should be treated as such.
- Fire Drill: Students exit the building as a class by following their teacher through the assigned exit to an area approximately 100 feet away from the building. Coats and books should be left behind. Students will return to the classroom when the all-clear bell rings. Students should not leave the school grounds during a fire drill.
- Evacuation Drill: During an evacuation, students will remain as a class and follow their classroom teacher to a designated location outside of the building.
- Tornado Drill: Tornado drills and warnings will be announced over the intercom. When drills are announced, teachers will take their classes to the assigned shelter areas. Students are to remain together as a class. The students are to sit next to the wall. In case of an actual tornado, students should sit on the floor and cover their heads for protection from flying glass and objects.
- Lockdown Drill: A designated tone will sound and an audio announcement will be made by an administrator to make students and staff aware of this kind of situation. A video announcement will help remind students to stay in their classroom or go to the nearest secure location. Students will move away from windows and doors and sit on the floor. No one will be allowed to leave the building unless directed by law enforcement. An “all clear” from administration or police will be given to leave the building or resume class time.
- Drill Procedures for Evacuation of Handicapped Students: Evacuation plans are on file with each case manager. The handicapped student will report to a predetermined location.
- Students: RAHS has a no-visitor policy. Students are not allowed to bring guests into school during school hours. Students from other schools are not allowed to shadow RAHS students during the school day.
- Adults: Parents or legal guardians who wish to see a teacher, counselor, or administrator are to call ahead to schedule a meeting time and location. All adults are to report to the security desk to sign in, receive their name tag and be escorted to their destination. This includes students who attended RAHS during a previous school year. Parents and/or legal guardians are not allowed to shadow their students during the school day.
As a district based data decision making, there are various surveys students are asked to complete throughout the year which are not advertised in advance to families. These may include: staff ratings, building/climate ratings, wellness surveys, etc. Surveys may occur as part of advisory or part of a class. Students are expected to participate in surveys unless a parent/ guardian has excused participation. To opt out of all student surveys, please leave a message in the main office at 651-635-1660. In this message, include your child’s name, grade and preference and they be excused from survey participation.

RAHS uses a 4.0 non-weighted grading system. The grade point average (GPA) for each student is calculated each trimester by dividing the honor points earned by the number of credits. Students achieving a GPA of 3.0 or better are named to the honor roll for that trimester. A cumulative GPA for each student is also calculated each trimester by dividing the total honor points earned since ninth grade, by the total number of credits taken since 9th grade. This cumulative GPA is used in determining the class rank and the Senior Honor Roll list.
The academic grades used on report cards, progress reports, and student records appear in letter form. Teachers may adopt academic regulations for their classroom as stated on their course syllabus. The numerical equivalency used to determine a student’s GPA is as follows:
|Courses with "NM" or "P" are not included In the GPA.
“No Mark” is used for students with extenuating circumstances that may prevent them from completing the work in a class before grades are put into the computer.
Students have the option of Pass/Fail grading. The forms are available online or from the Student Support Services Office. The deadline for being graded Pass/Fail must be made by mid- trimester.
Synergy StudentVue or ParentVue is available to check a student’s academic progress, attendance and health history. Parents/guardians select Parents at www.isd623.org/rahs then select Synergy Parent Portal.
While it is the student’s responsibility to see that he/she has all of the requirements necessary for graduation, the counselors will assist the students in monitoring requirements needed for graduation. Any student or parent/guardian who has a question regarding graduation status should contact their assigned counselor.
A student must be enrolled full time or participating in the diploma completion plan option in the third trimester to participate in the graduation ceremony.
The building class schedule is built using student/family course requests from registration. When a student registers for a class, they have the responsibility of remaining in the class and completing it. Student schedule changes only occur in rare instances as we base our staffing on your registration. Within the first 2 days of the trimester make an appointment with your counselor for a schedule change, if your request falls into the following acceptable reasons:
- Need a class to graduate
- Placed in the wrong level of course (i.e. Spanish III instead of Spanish II)
- Medical/physical restriction
- Missing the prerequisite
- Taken the class already
- Missing a class
- Have two classes scheduled the same period
- PSEO Enrollment
- Desire to rigor up(allowed only if there is space)
The following scheduling requests cannot be accommodated:
- Specific teacher requests
- Changes to support sports, activities or work
- Changed minds
- Desire to be with friends, have a certain lunch or certain period
Permanent records include the student’s scholastic achievements (grades and credits), standardized testing results, attendance, and health and immunization records.
A student and/or parents/legal guardians may see the student’s record by making an appointment to do so with his/her counselor. The student and/or parents/legal guardians may place any statements or items in the record if it pertains to the student’s school work. Students may request that items be removed from the file; however, the counselor may or may not grant the request. If the request is denied, an appeal may be made to the principal.
Transcripts needed for college applications or the NCAA are ordered through Parchment (www.parchment.com). To set up an account, select Roseville Area High School as your school and order your transcript. A fee will be charged for each transcript and must be paid by a credit or debit card. Transcripts needed for scholarships or PSEO applications can be obtained from Student Support Services. Students on Free/Reduced Lunch are eligible for up to four free transcripts. Please see Student Support Services.
Roseville Area Schools offers a summer school program of five weeks duration. Summer school is for the make-up of required coursework. Students who do not earn credit for a course during the school year have the option of summer school to earn credit in Math, English, Science and Social Studies. Two credits are the maximum a student can make up each summer.
A student must have their parent/legal guardian’s permission to withdraw. To withdraw, a student is to obtain a Withdrawal Form from the Student Support Services Office and have it signed by their teachers, counselor, nurse, media specialist, activities director, and associate principal. All books and materials checked out are to be returned and the fines assessed due to damaged or lost materials paid. Any course fees need to be paid in full.
- Honor Roll
- Academic Letters
- Student of the Trimester
- National Honor Society (NHS)
- Students Graduating with Honors
Membership in the National Honor Society is the highest formal academic honor conferred at Roseville Area High School. Selection to NHS is an honor accorded by the faculty, and is based on the student’s academic record, service record, leadership ability, and character.
Students who qualify academically are notified of their eligibility. A student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 based on our 4.0 point grading system, at the end of their seventh trimester. Students must provide evidence of performing a school or non-school service activity for which they have received no school credit or monetary payment. Continued service is important to membership in NHS. Each chapter must do a service project and members must be actively involved in service to school and community.
The top 10% of graduating senior students from the class rank are identified from the cumulative grade point average (GPA) /class rank computer list after the second trimester of their senior year. These students wear a silver honor cord at graduation. The top one percent of the senior class from both class ranks are honored with a medallion.
For home school students to be eligible for RAHS recognition of class rank, graduation honors, National Honor Society and academic letters, students need to have completed 75% of their credits at RAHS. Foreign exchange students are not eligible for these recognitions.

Students must follow the application process and timeline set by the post-secondary institution.
The Northeast Metro Career and Technical Center is associated with Century Community and Technical College. Over thirty career and technical programs are open to high school juniors and seniors. To enroll in NE Metro, a student must fill out an application and have counselor and/or case manager approval. Students at NE Metro will earn high school credits and, in some programs, may earn college credits.
Advanced Placement (AP) allows high school students to take college-level courses and exams to earn college credit while still in high school. Students learn the subject in greater depth, develop analytical reasoning skills, form disciplined study habits, gain confidence by meeting the challenge of college-level courses and gain experience of college-level work within the support of the high school environment. Students who are college bound and want a challenging academic program should register for AP classes. AP exams are given in May on a prescribed national schedule. Exam fees are set by the College Board. Students must register for the exam(s) on FeePay.
Naviance is a web-based post-secondary planning program that students will be taught to use throughout high school. It is a program that helps students explore college and career decisions. Seniors will use Naviance to do many of their college applications, scholarship applications and more. It is imperative that students learn Naviance in order to access tools they need for their senior year. If you have questions about the program, please feel free to call your student’s counselor. Students access Naviance by logging in at www.connection.naviance.com/rahs or the link on the RAHS website (Naviance Family Connections). Students log in with their Google Apps credentials (username and password). Parents can call their counselor or 651-635-1662 to receive their registration code.
Senior students receive a letter in September which provides the directions they need for their college application process through Naviance and should apply to colleges as soon as possible before their deadline. Letters of recommendation are requested through Naviance after talking to the teacher. Give counselors/teachers 2-4 weeks notice to write the letters. Order all transcripts through Parchment.
The Career Center offers a multitude of resources for college and career planning. It is staffed by a Career Specialist and is open and available to students and parents Monday through Thursday- before, during and after school.

SCHOOL NURSE: 651-635-1682
Managing the health office, the school nurse works with school staff to understand and meet individual student health needs and support students as needed to help them be successful at school. The nurse is a liaison between parent/guardians, school staff, and healthcare providers to address needs related to student health and educational plans (IHP, 504, IEP). The nurse maintains all health records, according to state law, is a member of the student support services team and provides referral information about community health-related resources as needed.
HEALTH ASSISTANT: 651-604-1474
The health assistant, supervised by the school nurse, performs routine first aid and administer daily medication as prescribed by a health care provider. The health assistant communicates with parents/guardians when a student becomes ill or is injured during the school day, consult with the school nurse when there is an emergency or a physical assessment of an illness or an injury is needed, or a non-routine health concern arises during the school day.
Medical appointments should be made outside of school hours whenever possible. If the appointment falls during school hours, it needs to be cleared by the attendance office before first hour on the day of the appointment. The student must bring a signed note from the parent/legal guardian indicating the clinic name, phone number, and the time the student is to be released for the appointment. Students will be expected to bring the original pass, signed by the clinic indicating the duration of the appointment, to the attendance office when they return to school to be readmitted.
When should a student stay home from school? If your student has:
- A fever of 100 degrees or more, they should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal and remains normal without fever-reducing medication
- Vomited or has diarrhea, they should stay home until 24 hours after the last episode
- Any rash that may be disease-related or the cause is unknown, check with your health care provider before sending them back to school
If your student becomes ill or injured at school, they may come to the health office to be assessed and treated. Health office staff will determine whether your student should be sent home and will contact you (or your designated emergency contact) if they believe they shouldn't remain in school.
Students are not to contact their parents/guardians directly and ask to be picked up because they are sick or injured unless their call or email is made through the health office.
Minnesota Law requires students to be immunized against certain diseases or have a signed, legal medical or conscientious exemption kept in the student health record. Appropriate documentation must be provided to the school health office in order for the student to enroll or remain enrolled. Contact the health office for information about obtaining a medical or conscientious exemption.
Medications taken at school must be accompanied by a medication permission form that is signed by a parent/guardian (and the health care provider for prescription medications). To protect our students, all medication is stored in the school health office. The exceptions are Epi-pens and inhalers as authorized by the provider, school nurse, and parent. Students may also self-carry certain non-prescription pain medication. Contact the health office for information about what medication may be self-carried and how to get the permission which is required by state law. All medication must come to school in a pharmacy-labeled bottle or the original container. A student who possesses non-prescription or prescription medication without following the procedure mandated by state law and school policy may be subject to disciplinary actions.
When a student’s ability to attend school is interrupted by illness or injury, they may become eligible for homebound instruction when the length of absence is anticipated to be fifteen or more school days. The application for homebound instruction is made through the school nurse. Allotted time is one hour per day for each day missed. When students have an extended illness that does not qualify for homebound instruction, they may request homework from teachers through the nurse or student support services.
RADD (Raiders Against Destructive Decisions) is a group that welcomes any and all students who are committed to making decisions to remain free from alcohol and other drugs, always wearing a seatbelt, never riding with an impaired driver or driving under the influence themselves. This group is committed to making positive choices in their own lives, and is committed to being advocates in creating a culture that encourages and supports students to remain free from alcohol and other drug use.
