An Important Message from our IT department:
To get our students back up and running on the guest network, we will be offering amnesty for all students from noon on Wednesday, January 20th, until noon on Friday, January  22nd.
The expectation is that our guest network is for our students and visitors to the district.  The guest network has been beefed up to handle normal (non-HD) streaming and regular network usage.​​  ​The School Guest network password isralstonrams
The​ ​RalstonHighSchool network is for district equipment only.  In order for our testing and general usage to run at its optimal speed we need to keep the network usage in this fashion.
Users venturing back onto the RalstonHighSchool network will stay banned for an extended time.  It is a privilege and not a right to have internet access.  Please abide by the rules set by the district administration.
RHS READERS Club Members, check your email for an important message regarding activities this week.  
Our Little Free Library, located outside next to door 31, continues to supply books to RHS students and the Ralston community, but we need your help.  We are looking for donations of books, especially children's books, to place in the LFL.  Drop off any donations to the RHS Library, and we will get them into the Little Free Library.  Thank you in advance!
