Seniors can find important information regarding senior tasks, college applications, graduation tasks, etc.  using the Senior Information Hub link above.  Additional forms are below. 

  • Senior Information Sheet (used to assist teachers/staff with writing letters of recommendation)
  • Letter of Recommendation Request Form (submit to teachers/staff along with senior information sheet)
  • Direct Admissions Program (RHS participates in the Direct Admissions Program with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.  This allows students to know they have met the admissions criteria for many colleges and universities in Minnesota and will receive direct admissions to those institutions. Students received letters in October with the list of colleges based on their transcript.  Surveys to select schools are in the student portal.)
