Digital Learning at Roswell High School
Hello Students and Parents,
Tuesday, March 17th marks the beginning of digital learning at Roswell High School! You should be receiving email correspondence from each of your child’s teachers. Students MUST BE informed that information is being sent to their FCS email accounts as well! To assure no breaks in communication, please forward any teacher emails to your child’s personal email as well.
We are dedicated to continuing your child’s education during these unprecedented times.
- Please read the Teleschool Information from Dr. Shaw.
- And, look to the FultonSchools website for ongoing updates.
Registration for 2020-21
Please check back on April 14 for instructions to register students from private school/homeschool or non-FCS public schools to attend RHS for the 2020-21 school year.
Our Hornets are a little spread out right now, but we are closer than you think. As students nest with their families and connect via teleschool, Student Services is here to answer questions, provide emotional support and continue their mission of getting students to their goals. You can reach out directly to Student Services staff with your inquiries. For more information and how to contact your counselor or any other Student Services staff, please see the Informational Flyer.
Transcripts are still being processed daily through Parchment. It’s not too late for college applications, scholarship applications and/or summer programs. If you have questions related to course registration, class selection and balance or summer school registration, reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org for a quick response.
