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 (PCR test) before they can return to school, or they must remain in isolation or quarantine for 10 days. After a negative test or the 10 days, if a student is symptom free for 24 hours, then they can return.

 

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!

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. 


Winter Sports Schedule

2020-2021 HSBB Schedule January 12

Rock River Winter Sports Spectators Guidelines

Under current guidelines of 25% of capacity we are allowing 86 fans into our gym. Using a 70/30 split this means 60 home fans and 26 visiting fans will be allowed in the stands. Face coverings WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE BUILDING. Refusing to comply will result in being asked to leave the building. Please understand that failure to comply could lead to sanctions against our teams from the Wyoming High School Athletic Association and possibly keep us from playing. 

*******At this time, it is recommended by WHSAA that exemptions to wear masks will not be accepted.*******

We are using the definition of face coverings from the State Health Orders, which is, “means a covering made of cloth, fabric, or other soft or permeable material, without holes, that covers the nose and mouth and surrounding areas of the lower face. Face shields do not meet this definition and therefore, are not allowed as a replacement to a face covering”.

No concessions will be offered this season. We are also asking that there be no food or drink in the gym during the games. 

Visitors

  • Face coverings WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE BUILDING.
  • Visiting teams the Rock River AD will be asking you for a list of spectators that is due by 12:00PM the day before the contest. Please advise fans that are traveling that if their name is not on that list they will not be allowed in. 
  • Teams will have a section of 3 bleachers roped off for them to sit in. This will be where boys will sit during the girls games and girls will sit during the boys games. 
  • We will not be offering any concessions and food and drink should not be brought in by fans. 
  • Parents attending with young children should be advised that their children will be seated with them at all times. 

Home Fans

  • Face coverings WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES IN THE BUILDING. Refusing to comply will result in being asked to leave the building. Please understand that failure to comply could lead to sanctions against our teams from the Wyoming High School Athletic Association and possibly keep us from playing. 
  • “Tickets” will be given on a basis of 4 per family. We will have a list of people attending and if there are any leftover “tickets” you may request to be entered in a random lottery for them. These will be drawn at random. Names of fans attending will be due to the coaches by 12:00PM two days before the game. 
  • Parents attending with young children should be advised that their children will be seated with them at all times. 
  • Teams will have a section of 3 rows bleachers roped off for them to sit in. This will be where boys will sit during the girls games and girls will sit during the boys games.
