Dear Roxana Senior High School Parents, 

The faculty and administration of Roxana Senior High School cordially invite you to attend our annual Spring Parent-Teacher Conference  which will be held on:

(Spring) Parent-Teacher Conference

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

RHS Campus 

The end of the third quarter was Friday, March 19th.  Grades are available for viewing on our Skyward Family Web Access. 

Parents may choose either in-person or remote (via Google Meet) conferences this evening.

To schedule a conference, please call Trish Talley at (618) 254-7557 no later than 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, 2021.  

This conference is provided as an opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teachers to discuss their academic and social progress from the third quarter.  We encourage all parents to take this opportunity to communicate with the teachers and staff at Roxana High School.

As in the past, there will be brief individual conferences between parents and teachers limited to ten (10) minutes.  Your cooperation and patience regarding this matter is greatly appreciated.  If you need more than the allotted time, please arrange another conference with the teacher to request an additional appointment at a later date. 

Please complete the Parent Survey at the conclusion of your conference so we can continually look at ways to improve and enhance this experience for everyone involved. 

Yours in Education,

Jason Dandurand, Ed. S.

4th Quarter RHS Parent Letter (3/22/21)

Dear Senior Parents of the Class of 2021:

Roxana Senior High School is proud to announce some upcoming events and important information as we celebrate the Class of 2021 and close out the school year.

Monday, March 22, 2021 is a remote planning day for teachers and no school for students.  The 4th quarter begins Tuesday, March 23rd.  This will be the first day of our 5 day in-person option or full remote for the remainder of the school year.  As a reminder, parking permits are still available in the main office for seniors returning to in-person. 

Graduation is scheduled for Friday, May 14, 2021 at 7 PM on the Charles Raich Field.  If weather becomes an issue, we will attempt to reschedule the ceremony at 2 PM on either Saturday, May 15th or Sunday, May 16th.  More detailed  information will be provided about our Graduation ceremony procedures in the near future.  

As the Principal of RHS, I understand this past year has been challenging for Shell Nation.  Just know, difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations!  We are excited to announce our plans for upcoming events to celebrate and honor the graduating class of 2021:  Please keep in mind, events may be subject to change due to IDPH, ISBE and our local health department regulations.

  • Thursday, April 15, 2021:  Silver Medallion Virtual Ceremony.  This ceremony is a tribute to the Top 8% of the graduating class in Madison County.  RHS Seniors who have earned this distinct honor will be showcased in the Alton Telegraph and on Edwardsville Intelligencer websites. 
  • Thursday, April 22, 2021National Honor Society Induction Ceremony.  Our RHS Senior NHS Advisors will preside over this year’s ceremony to induct new members into the RHS Chapter.  This ceremony will be in-person in the auditorium at 6 PM with COVID safety mitigations in place. More information to follow from the NHS sponsor.
  • Saturday, May 1, 2021:  Prom Event.  The RHS Prom Committee is currently developing an outdoor Prom Event for the junior and senior classes.  No outside guests will be allowed. Weather permitting.  This event is still tentative and subject to change due to ISBE, IDPH and local health department regulations.  
  • May 3-7, 2021:  Senior Spirit Week ~ Seniors Last Week.  This will be our seniors last week. The Student Council and other student-led committees will organize events to honor the Class of 2021 including a Senior Parade, Senior Walk & Graduation Practice, College Signings and a Senior Sunset.  
  • Monday, May 10, 2021:  Senior Awards & Scholarship Night.  This event is our Prelude to Graduation.  Seniors will receive honors and/or scholarships.  A special recognition ceremony will also be held to introduce our Silver Medallion recipients who will assist in presiding over the Graduation Ceremony.  This evening we will be in-person in our Auditorium beginning at 6 PM with COVID safety mitigations in place.

 Yours in Education,

Jason Dandurand, Ed. S.
