ACSD 1 Procedures as of March 8, 2021

 ACSD 1 COVID Decision Guide March 2021

Notable changes are:

  1. Children and staff who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should be sent home or not allowed to enter. If the child or staff has NOT had a COVID exposure they may return 24 hours after COVID-19 symptoms have subsided - without the use of fever reducing medication.
  2. Children and staff who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should be sent home or not allowed to enter. If the child or staff has had a COVID exposure they will need to quarantine for 14 days.

Please refer to the guide for more detailed information

Update: 

The state will be dropping the state-wide mask mandate while we are over break. In the governor’s release, it states that “the face covering protocol will remain in place in K-12 schools as a safety measure to ensure that classroom learning, and all student activities can continue to occur safely”. Please remind students as they are set to come back that they will have to continue to wear face coverings in school. We will continue to update any new procedures as they happen.


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

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.
