FAQs for the 2019-2020 School Year

How do I access Sycamore for grades and cafeteria account?
Reitz Memorial parents will receive an email from Lisa Popham, Assistant Principal, by June 7, 2019.  The email will contain login and password information for the 2019-2020 school year for new parents along with step-by-step instructions on how to login to Sycamore, access grades, and make lunch payments.  If you have additional questions or are unable to login, please contact us at (812) 476-4973 ext. 2101.

How do I find my student’s schedule?
Schedules for the 2019-2020 school year will be available through Sycamore on July 12, 2019, to all those that have completed a FACTS payment agreement or paid their balance in full.  Also, the return of the signed Consent to Drug and/or Alcohol Screening Test is required only for new students.  After July 12, 2019, schedules will be released individually, as the FACTS payments agreements are completed and required paperwork is returned.

How does block scheduling work?
Reitz Memorial runs on an alternate day block schedule that are referred to as White Days and Blue Days.  Each student has four 85-minute periods each day throughout the year on alternating days.  These White Days and Blue Days have been set in a fixed schedule for the school year (see 2019-2020 school calendar).  An example schedule is provided below.

What supplies does my student need for each class?

How do I apply for free and reduced meals and textbook assistance for my student?

The application request for free and reduced meals and textbook assistance will be available on July 1, 2019.  This State issued application will be accessible on our website at reitzmemorial.org.

How do I order uniforms for my student?

Uniform polos (which are worn during the first and fourth quarters), white and light blue oxford shirts (which are worn during the second and third quarters), 1/4-zip pullovers, sweaters and PE uniforms are available for purchase from the RMHS Spirit Store.  Oxford shirts can be purchased elsewhere, however, they can not have a monogram or trademark emblem.  Links to the online Spirit Store can be found on our website at reitzmemorial.org.

What medical information does the school need?

State law requires that all students provide documentation of immunizations.  Reitz Memorial requires that this information must be on file on or before the first day of school.  If your child is a student athlete, they are required to complete and return a physician certified IHSAA Physical Form to the Reitz Memorial Athletic Office.  Your student does not need a physical if he or she does not plan on participating in athletics.

What is FACTS?

FACTS is a tuition management company that provides flexible payment plan options to families.

What is the deadline to register with FACTS?

Families will receive an email notification from FACTS in late May to register and complete a payment agreement.  This must be done by June 30, 2019, as your student's enrollment is not final until tuition is paid in full or a payment agreement has been completed.

What are my options for paying Tuition?

Reitz Memorial offers five payment options for Tuition
   1. Payment in Full by July 5, 2019
   2. Semester Payments – half tuition and all fees due on July 5, 2019; half tuition due on December 5, 2019
