Over the past weekend, there were two social gatherings involving Rockland High School students. After one of the gatherings, at least one student tested positive for Coronavirus, and after the other, at least three students tested positive. Through contact tracing, the school has identified approximately 60 close contact students. In accordance with the Rockland Board of Health, the high school has decided to have a remote learning day on April 30, 2021. The synchronous learning day will follow this schedule:

Rockland High School is planning to test any close contact students who have not yet been tested tomorrow.

If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to Dr. John Harrison.
RHS celebrated their senior athletes and performers on Friday, April 9 with flowers and balloons and even better, two big wins!
First to be recognized on Friday afternoon were the senior girls on the volleyball team, Mayavana Reese and Jessica Driscoll. The girls have been part of a highly successful volleyball team which picked up where it left off back in the 2019 season when they went all the way to the state finals. This year the girls proceeded to go undefeated during the regular season and won the South Shore League title. They will begin the league playoffs tomorrow (Wednesday) in the semifinals at home against Abington at 4pm.
On Friday night the football team had their unofficial homecoming as they played their first Fall 2 season game in Rockland Veterans Memorial Stadium.
They, like the volleyball team, had to wait a long time to get back on the field.. They too are undefeated so far in all their games this spring and looked to keep it that way. After the senior members of the band, the senior cheerleaders and the seniors on the football team were recognized, the football team went out and won 49-0 against Randolph. They kept their undefeated season (5-0) going. Due to power ranking placement Rockland will not play in the SSL title game but they will look to remain undefeated in their last two games, the first this Thursday night at 5:30 against Mashpee at home.
Congratulations to all the seniors, the teams and their coaches!
