We need donations!

Our Makerspace is starting to run low on some supplies. We are asking for donations of the following items so that students can continue to explore, collaborate, and invent in our space:

  • 9 volt batteries (they help our tech items run!)

  • Toilet paper and paper towel tubes

  • Masking tape

  • Duct tape

In our front office, there will be a box labeled “Makerspace Donations” as an area that will collect these items. Students can bring them into their homeroom teacher or items can be dropped off in the office. Thank you for your support!


Coding Friday

Every other Friday, our Rose Glen Eagles take place in 15 minutes of coding. They use sites such as code.org to navigate their way through the world of coding! Kids are enjoying this time and are using their creativity in a new way.

Health Room Request

Safe Arrival Attendance System

To enhance the existing absence reporting procedure, the School District of Waukesha introduced a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called "SafeArrival" which started at Rose Glen in October of 2018. This system works in conjunction with our district messenging system (School Messenger). It reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance, makes it easier for you to report your child’s absence and makes it easier for staff to respond to unexplained student absences. We would love to have all of our families using this system by the start of school.


Pre-Excused Absences: If you know your child is going to be absent and you want to report that before the student is marked absent in school, Safe Arrival provides three convenient methods:


1. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at https://go.schoolmessenger.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.


2. Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.com. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.


3. Call the toll-free number 1-866-490-7371 to report an absence using the automated phone system. These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.


Future absences can be reported at any time.


Post-Excused Absences: If you were not able to report your child’s absence in advance you will be notified by the SchoolMessenger system if your child is marked absent.


You are notified of a reported absence within minutes of the reported absence.


The School Messenger app or the website will allow families to customize where they want to receive their notifications and allow them to excuse the absence right from the notification.


If you report your child’s absence in advance using the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications.


Additional assistance can be found on the District's Safe Arrival Support Page:
