A friendly reminder that Rochester High School will honor our Veterans tomorrow from 2:30 p.m.-3:00 p.m. at the Rochester Athletic Complex behind the high school. Only Veterans and a significant other may attend with students and staff for the assembly. Veterans may park in the BACK of the HIGH SCHOOL directly in front of the RAC as those spaces have been reserved for VETERANS ONLY. Doors will open at 2:00 p.m. and there will be tea, fruit punch and cookies available in the lobby of the Rochester Athletic Complex for our special guests. Rochester High School is looking forward to honoring our Veterans in-person for a very special Veterans Day celebration. Students and Staff are encouraged to wear RED, WHITE, and BLUE in honor of Veterans Day.
