Covid Procedures for 2022-2023
If your student does receive a positive Covid test - they must isolate for at least a full 5 days. Day 0 is the day symptoms started or a positive covid then we count 5 days after that with the student returning on day 6.
If symptoms are improving then your student can return on day 6 - you can check with the office on their return date. You do not need to test to return unless symptoms are still present. If the test is still positive then they will remain out for another 5 days.
On their return we do recommend masking for at least 5 days.
As always these guidelines are set by the Public Health Department and could change throughout the year.

Lost Library Book?
If you are receiving phone calls that your child is missing an RPS Library Book, here's how you can help:
- Weekly calls will continue until the lost book is returned or the replacement cost is paid so we can purchase a new copy.
- Any RPS library book (even an elementary book) can be returned to the middle school library. As soon as the book is checked in, the phone calls stop.
- Books that cannot be returned (lost/damaged) will be cleared from the student's account after cash or a check made out to Rockford Public Schools has been brought to the library.
