Every day, the Rich Hill R-IV Transportation Department delivers students safely to and from school and to school activities. Today, the Missouri Department of Transportation has delivered the news that all buses in the Rich Hill School Fleet have passed inspection and are certified as safe to operate and safe for students.
This could not have happened without the hard work and due diligence of a few of Rich Hill R-IV’s finest employees. Our school route bus drivers–Threasa Coonce, Paula Coonce, Susan Kelly, and Brenda Diehl don’t just drive the buses. They inspect them daily in pre- and post-trip routines which ensure safety and maintenance needs are met. Our trip drivers–Rayanne Swarnes and Wendell Jones–also do those inspections. Our bus mechanic, Kenny Kassner, is excellent at his job and keeps the buses running (among his other maintenance duties). Brian Gillis, our transportation director, has done will in that job in his first year.
The Rich Hill R-IV School District has an opening for a part-time position for the mowing season to begin as soon as possible. The individual must possess a strong work ethic and the ability to operate all mowing and lawn care equipment needed to care for the district’s grounds. Some flexibility in work hours is possible.

Attention Parents and Rich Hill R-IV School District Patrons,
This message is to let you know that at 1:00PM today, all students and staff of the Rich Hill R-IV School District participated in an intruder lockdown drill. This was only a drill, which was made clear to students and staff throughout the process.
These drills are important to practice for a variety of reasons. One of these reasons is to clarify the steps in an emergency for both students and staff. Another reason is for administrators and staff to identify areas of improvement to prevent real emergencies. On both counts, today’s drill was a success.
Thank you for your time,
Rich Hill R-IV
