Message from Rocklin Unified School District

Dear Rocklin Unified Families,

The Rocklin Unified School District understands how important Internet connectivity and access to a device is for students so they can access online educational resources. If you checked out a Chromebook or Hotspot for your student last year or will not have a device at home for your student to use for homework this year, please take a moment to apply for this federal program so we can determine if you qualify.

We have extended the deadline for this program until further notice.

If you already submitted the form, you do not need to do it again. For information on the timeline and next steps or to look at some Frequently Asked Questions, please go to our website for more information.

FUNd Run Progress!


Amazing job Sierra families! You helped reach the first milestone of $2,500 in the first week of FUNd Run fundraising! Students get to celebrate by wearing their Silly Socks on Wednesday, September 8.

Keep the momentum going. Remember, all the FUNd raising supports the in-person Spanish instruction all Sierra students enjoy and the school’s amazing IB program. The next milestone is $5,000.

Hurry, sponsorships are due today (business = $250, family = $25). Your business and/or family will be featured on the back of the t-shirt all students receive, and businesses will also be recognized on the PTC website and Facebook page.

Click here to sponsor or make a donation.
