CSE Family Newsletter April 6, 2023
IMPORTANT! LAST DAY TO ORDER A YEARBOOK IS APRIL 17th!
We believe that all students should have as many memories and opportunities as possible here at ROCORI Public Schools. All ROCORI Elementary students will receive a yearbook.
If you would like to help offset the cost of these yearbooks for the district and our PTCs, please consider purchasing a yearbook or donating by April 17.
- Yearbooks can be purchase directly through the Lifetouch information below.
- Cash or Check payments or donations can be sent to your school office.
If you have any questions about Yearbooks, please feel free to contact our school office.
This time of year, we do our best to prepare staffing for next year. One thing that helps us is knowing of any potential school changes for our students.
If you plan to stay at your current school (or move the ROCORI Middle school if a 5th grader), there is no need to contact us. However, if you know of any changes to enrollment next year for your child(ren) please contact our school office at 320-251-8651 ext. 3.
Discounted At-Home Internet
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible households a discount of up to $30 per month off their internet bills (or up to $75 per month for households living on Tribal lands), as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 off an eligible connected device like a laptop, desktop computer or tablet. In many cases, households can get high-speed internet without paying a dime by choosing a fully covered internet plan.
This announcement serves as a reminder that a household is eligible to participate in the ACP if a child in the household receives free or reduced-price school meals. Therefore, under the ACP rules, every household with a child attending a school participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program is eligible for ACP benefits.
Households can learn more and apply for the ACP at GetInternet.gov.
While this reminder is specific to schools that are participating in CEP, additional information about eligibility for CEP discount benefits can be found in the School Outreach Toolkit PDF (English) and School Outreach Toolkit PDF (Spanish). The toolkit provides information about ways households can qualify for the ACP, including through an individual student’s participation in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program providing free or reduced-price meals; through a household member’s participation in a wide range of other federal assistance programs like Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and many others; or based on the household’s income (up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level).
Drop Off Time
Please remember drop off time in the morning is at 7:45. The doors are locked and we so not have staff for supervision until 7:45. If you need to drop off earlier please contact Spartan Spot! They are open at 6:00 a.m until the start of the school day. It is a wonderful and safe option for our students!
