Part II CBVI Parent Slide Information

Hello Rock River families!

As a district we would like to communicate with all of you regarding what would happen in the event Rock River School would have to move to a Tier III (online learning platform). Attached you will find a link to click on and participate in an online activity that will inform you of what that platform may look like. Some of you may remember when we launched Part I of this information back in October. This is Part II, and has similar information, but a few more examples.

We hope that by providing parents and guardians information about this will be of assistance if we need to go into an online platform. The presentation takes approximately 15 minutes to read through and participate in. Click the link below to begin.

If you have any questions we will be hosting a live Q&A session on Zoom on December 7, 2020 at 6:30-7:00pm. The Zoom link will be shared with all of you during the week of the 7th.

Thank you!


Student Health Information

Instructions for Parents to use the HealthEd Check from a SmartPhone

Click on the PowerSchool icon above to access PowerSchool.  Please contact our school nurse if you receive a "Stay Home" message or make an error.

New Procedures as of November 30, 2020

  • Parents, students, and staff must complete the revised Daily Health Screening, and
  • Students or staff who have COVID-19 like symptoms must have a negative test before they can return to school, or they must remain in isolation or quarantine for 10 days.

 

One way to maybe get in front of the negative result vs the 10 day quarantine could be to order one of the free tests available through the Wyoming Department Of Health. By using this  Free COVID Test Kit you can have a free test mailed to your home and have it on “standby” in case you need it. This way, instead of having to wait for one to be mailed or to get into a medical facility, where the turn around results are several days into the week, you could have results within 48 hours. This would be if you wanted to avoid the 10 day quarantine and return sooner rather than later. I actually went through the website to test the simplicity of the process, and it was very easy! Once you click on the “Order a Free At-Home COVID-19 Testing Kit From Vault”, it walks you through the process. The kit arrived in 24 hours through the mail.

I just wanted to pass along this information in case you were interested in having a test kit at your disposal as needed. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Thank you!

Ms. Anfinson


Breakfast & Lunch Information

 

 

The National School Lunch Program to the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) grant has been extended through June 30th.  This means that everyone has the option of having breakfast and lunch at no charge to them for the remainder of the school year.  The SFSP program and meal pattern requirements are different and will result in the following changes:

  • We will only have 1 entree at breakfast and lunch.
  • Breakfast will consist of a cold entree, white milk, and a juice.
  • Lunch will consist of either a cold or hot entree with a fruit and vegetable and a chocolate milk.
  • Ala carte items or drinks are not available for purchase.
  • This replaces our current meal plans.
  • We hope that this will last as long as through this fall.

Yes, you read that right.  For the remainder of the school year, your child has the option to receive free breakfasts and lunches every day.  This is available to all students.

However, if you qualify or think you qualify for free and/or reduced lunch it is still important you complete that application. The SFSP program will most likely not last the entire year. Once it is finished, students will be charged for meals again. Use this link to access the free and reduced lunch application.

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.
