NOVEMBER 8TH PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES - NON-STUDENT DAY

Please be aware that November 8th is a non-student contact day at ROCORI Schools. Our parent / teacher conferences at ROCORI Secondary School this fall will happen again in a flexible format to provide more opportunities to meet with families. Teachers will be making contacts home and offering an invitation to meet virtually, via phone call, or in person. If you would like to meet, we will schedule a meeting that works for your family. Our staff will be working hard to make parent / guardian contacts but please be aware that we will always work to hold a meeting for any concerned parent regarding their student.

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.
