Annual Updates Must Be Completed online BEFORE students receive laptops
Parents--Please take the opportunity to verify and update your student's information, emergency contacts, phone numbers and more to ensure that Rockdale County Public Schools has a way to contact and communicate with you. In doing so, you will also have the opportunity to sign all of the district-level forms needed for next school year. Signing these forms is required to ensure that your child has continued access to technology services and will be one of the first students to have a laptop issued to them at the start of next school year. Doing this early means that your child will have a smooth start to the school year with the most current and accurate information.
To access annual updates:
- Log into Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
- If you need to create a Parent Portal account refer to directions available at Parent Portal Instructions - Rockdale County High School (rockdaleschools.org)
- Click on 'more'

Clear Bookbag Update
Update: Distribution of clear bookbags for RCPS students will take place after Labor Day due to delay in delivery and global supply chain issues. Students who have their own clear bags that meet guidelines may begin using them. If a student needs to transport items then all bags that do not meet the guidelines will have to be checked in at the start of the day in the Magnet front office. More information and clear bookbag requirements/FAQs at https://www.rockdaleschools.org/cms/One.aspx
RCPS will resume the mask requirement for students, staff, and visitors for the 2022-23 School Year. Of course, recent legislation passed by the General Assembly permits parents to opt their children out of a school district’s mask requirement. As we did last school year, we will continue to comply with that legislation accordingly. More information is available at this link.
