  • Rustburg High School Families,

    We have a new security system at Rustburg High School that requires an extra step in keeping our school safe. This new system requires you to scan your driver's license every time you come to the school. Whether you are volunteering,  signing them in tardy, or picking them up early, the system requires you to scan your driver's license. Please start to bring your license in with you each time you visit the school. Thank you for helping keep our students safe.

  • Please check out the School Counseling page for Honor Roll and Principal List.

  • Student Accident Insurance - Parents can enroll online by the use of a dedicated secure enrollment website or by calling 877-444-5014 or visit the website at: http://markel.sevencorners.com
