The RUHS PTSA is proud to support Project Unified, a joint effort by Redondo Beach Council of PTAs and RBUSD, to help families in need in our RBUSD community. RUHS has "adopted" 4 families who have provided Wish List items. These wish list items are hanging on gift tags by a fireplace display in the administration building by the nurse’s office. Come by and check out the display and see if you can help fill the needs of these families during the holidays.
If you choose a tag, the gift needs to be turned in, unwrapped, to the office (To Sea Hawk Receptionist, Stephen Kelley) by Monday, December 8th. We look forward to your support!

Good afternoon, RUHS Students and Parents!
First and foremost, thank you, once again, for supporting our one to one Chromebook distribution and program.
The use of Chromebooks is mandatory at RUHS. Just like textbooks, the laptops are a part of our curriculum and instruction. Many teachers and students are currently learning how to use Google Docs and Google Classroom. Additionally, our elementary and middle school students will eventually arrive at RUHS with years of practice on the Chromebooks. (An important note: Students may only use district-issued Chromebooks in class; no personal laptops)
Please remind your child(ren) to take proper care of the laptop. This means purchasing a protective cover, carrying the laptop in a case or padded backpack (not between textbooks), and not leaving the laptop unattended. Over the past week, a few students have left laptops behind in the cafeteria or on a outdoor table or broken the screen due to careless use (ex.carrying the laptop with one hand and no cover). However, the vast majority of our students have been responsible and careful. Nevertheless, we still highly recommend the insurance option of $25 that covers the laptop for theft, loss, and damage (ex. covering $150 screen replacement). The check or money order to RBUSD can be dropped off in the office until Nov. 19th. The condition of the laptop will be confirmed at that time. One very important note, please remind your child(ren) to turn in any lost laptops. Stealing a laptop may result in expulsion from RUHS and RBPD involvement.
For any technical questions such as log-in information, students may go to the library. A password portal for changing passwords will be published in the near future. We also plan on having the ability to send mass emails to students soon. This will help with messages such as morning announcements.
With regards to the proper use of the laptops, we have only had a handful of incidents. Of course, we wish this number was zero. All of the incidents have involved students using inappropriate language in their school emails. Parents, please remind your child(ren) to use the laptops for school work only. All work on the laptops should be professional in nature. Similar to our district's expectations with regards to the use of technology by employees, we expect your children to consider themselves professional students! Personal conversations must occur on personal devices. Again, the vast majority of our students are using the laptops appropriately and we appreciate their efforts!
Finally, we appreciate everyone's patience as we work to improve our network capabilities and the use of the laptops both at home and at school. Let's all remember this is the first year of a long-term goal to ensure that all RBUSD students are technologically proficient and, therefore, better prepared for college and the 21st century workplace!
Thank you, everyone, for your support, patience, and excitement! We consider ourselves and our students very fortunate to have access to this amazing technology!
We recognize that creating a safe learning environment is a critical part of helping each child achieve academic success. This year we will introduce Sprigeo, a new online system that students can use to report bullying incidents and school safety threats. Sprigeo will give your child another medium for communicating with our school administration when bullying or school safety incidents occur. All information sent through the Sprigeo system goes directly to school administrators through a secure online connection. Sprigeo empowers all students – the bystanders and the targets – by providing a simple and anonymous way to report bullying and other safety incidents.
Go to www.sprigeo.com for more information or to report online.
