Make Up Day For September 8 Power Outage

October 9, 2020 Make Up Day

Due to the power outage that occurred on September 8, 2020, students and staff will need to make up that day of school. We will have the make up day on October 9, 2020. This was scheduled to be a "no school" day on the original calendar, so please make note of the change. This will be a full day of school for students. If you have any questions, feel free to call the office at Rock River School.

Thank you!

How do students from Laramie get to school?

The school district provides a bus to take students to and from school.

What time does the bus leave and return to Laramie?

There is a school bus that leaves the old Laramie High School’s back parking lot at 6:55 am for students and teachers. It usually returns around 4:15 pm. We also run a late activity/tutoring bus for those involved in after-school activities that returns around 7pm (all times are dependent on the weather).

What type of school is Rock River?  

We are not an alternative school. We do, however, provide an educational environment that some find to be a great alternative to the challenges of a larger school simply because of our size, location, and student population. Students generally receive more one-on-one instruction and also have access to resources that are not found in larger schools. 


Absences Add Up

Your child’s daily, on-time attendance is critical to their success in school. And while some challenges to your child’s school attendance are unavoidable, it’s important to understand the impact of each absence.
A student is considered chronically absent if they miss only two days of school per month (18 days in a year), whether the absences are excused or unexcused. This is true for children as early as elementary school, when they are at a higher risk of falling behind in reading. Even one year of chronic absence can cause a child to fall behind academically and decrease a child’s chances of graduating from high school, which can have long-term consequences on their financial independence, physical well-being and mental health.
The good news? Attending school every day increases a child’s chances of success in school and in life.
