WELCOME BACK & HAPPY NEW YEAR

Welcome back:

We hope that the holiday break brought about some rest, relaxation, and reflection for all our students and families. We want to wish each of our ROCORI families a Happy New Year! It has been fantastic to welcome our students and staff back to the building and we have had a great first week to kick off 2022.

NO AFTER SCHOOL ALA CARTE BEGINNING NEXT WEEK DUE TO STAFFING ISSUES

WINTER CLOTHING

While winter can be a season of fun and adventure for children, it can also be very dangerous. Make yourself aware of the temperature outside before sending your children to school and help to assure they are dressed appropriately for the weather. If they are having to walk home or to an appointment they should wear the appropriate clothing (warm jacket, hat, gloves, scarf and boots). Thank you!

HEALTH OFFICE INFORMATION

Update Vaccinations:

If you have had any new vaccinations since last school year, please send that information to Missy Boucher in the Health Office so we can update your student file.

If your student has received the COVID vaccine, and you are willing to share that information, you can send a picture of your vaccination card to Mrs. Boucher. This would assist us in effectively and efficiently contact tracing within our building. Sharing this information with our school health office would be voluntary.
