Class of 2021 - Celebrating our Seniors

This page is dedicated to the Class of 2021. Please visit this page to receive all the news and up-to-date information on events, highlights and activities to recognize the Class of 2021!

Please view this letter from RCS High School Principal Dr. Patierne related to the district's efforts to celebrate and recognize the Class of 2021. To read the full letter, visit here.

The chart below represents three things:  activities that we hope to do, things that have already been planned, and things that we have already done.  Over the course of the next four months we would like to move as many activities as possible from the “hope” and “planned” stage over to the "completed” stage.  To accomplish some of the ideas below we will need the restrictions of the NYSED and the ACDOH to be lessened or lifted.
