VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ

Over the last week the students at RLJH have been given a letter regarding their new log-ins to their student portal.  If your student has not given you this information please ask them for it and please make sure that they have made the changes required.  There have been no changes to the parent portal passwords.

These new codes are very important and every student should take the time to reset their passwords and make sure they either write their new password in a safe place or put it on their phones.  Once the password is changed the school can no longer give the password to the student it would have to be reset.

The student portal may not be important to them at this time but will become very important to them at the end of August/early September when they are looking on their portal to see what class they are in for the first day of school (KEEPING IN MIND THAT THIS INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AFTER THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL).  Because of the number of phone requests that we get during that week we will be unable to give out that information or reset passwords at that time.  Also, RLJH will no longer have that information for the grade 9 students moving to CPA it will have been transferred to CPA and they will not be able to give that information out that week either.  It is the students responsibility to make sure that they have this information prior to leaving school at the end of June.
