Child Safety Reminder: We have had several recent reports of unsafe driving incidents during our morning drop off. The safety of all our children is of paramount importance! Hurrying because your late is not worth a regrettable accident. Please take those extra seconds needed to be sure you are using caution when driving into, through, and out of our school drop off loop. Be sure to pull completely to the curb before having children exit from the curb side of your vehicle.

Rolling Hills is committed to creating a bully-free, safe and caring school environment. This challenge is a great way to show students how small acts of kindness can help combat bullying and create a caring and respectful culture.
