Principal's News





     Hello Families of RCK,

    Let me start off by saying how happy and excited we are here at RCK to have your child(ren) back at school in person. It has been a pleasure seeing all the students here. I want you to know that the school year has gotten off to a great start. We thank you for your support and partnership and for entrusting us with your children.

    Yesterday, we had our grade level assemblies and I am proud to say that the students exhibited excellent behavior during these events. They were extremely respectful and cooperative. At the assemblies, we covered a variety of important items. Some of the topics we covered were the importance of being on time to all classes, the proper use of social media, and behavior that does not lead to consequences. I ask that you please speak with your child(ren) about the topics that we covered but also to please review our student code of conduct.

    I have sent several emails out over the last few months about student IDs. This topic was covered during each student assembly. Please make sure that your child is wearing their ID badges as this is a requirement inside our school building.

    Lastly, I want to inform you of a TikTok trend taking place that is affecting schools throughout our local area. This trend is called "Devious Lick". The purpose of this trend is to steal items from school without getting caught. Stolen objects range from working towel dispensers to signs and, even more concerning, fire alarms. Theft and damaging of school property will lead to suspension or expulsion. I am proud to say that this has not occurred here at RCK and I ask that you please speak to your child(ren) regarding this matter. Your support is very much appreciated. 

    Have a wonderful night and thank you again for all your support!

    Your principal,

    Dave Seipp

Tip Line

  • Wappingers CSD is now using Anonymous Alerts® 

    The Anonymous Alerts® reporting app was created to help students, parents or community members choose a school official to contact, type of incident to report, school building and/or a specific location, set a priority level of normal or high and upload a photo, screenshot or video related to the incident.  This reporting system is meant to allow for anonymous reporting but still provides for District and Building Administrators to respond (via the app) to the person who submitted a tip to the District. 

    If you plan on submitting an alert anonymously please be sure to check the "message center" in the application itself to see any responses to your tip, or requests from District Officials for additional information.

    The purpose of the app is for members of our school and community to report suspicious activity, bullying or student-related concerns to a school administrator. For all other reports, please contact your child's school directly. If you feel the need to keep this submission anonymous that is OK, we completely respect your right to privacy and appreciate you making us aware.
