Spartan Online School

December 8th begins the 2nd Trimester of Spartan Online K-12. We learned a lot in our 1st Trimester and will continue to do so throughout the year. We have found many students have excelled with our online program. This has been a great opportunity for students to discover new strengths in a new learning atmosphere.

A reminder to parents, students need to login daily for attendance. If your child is ill or unable to work on lessons, please contact Steph Ruegemer at 685-4908,

The field has been in use for two football games and soccer during recess times already!

ROCORI Public Schools can accept open enrollment for students in certain grade levels for the 2020-2021 school year

The resolution to close enrollment on August 24th was put in place to keep ROCORI Schools capacity at safe levels in response to COVID-19. The resolution allows for open-enrollment at each grade level until it reaches enrollment capacity.

The first month of school is now over and our enrollment has been consistent. At this time we have limited room for enrollment in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade. Please note that at the elementary level you will be assigned to a building that has room. We have limited room at the middle school in grades 6 and 7 and limited room in the HS grades 9-12. Please contact the Cold Spring Elementary office (grades K-5) or the ROCORI Secondary office (grades 6-12) to see if your child will fit into the open programming.
