Parents

Parents are the cornerstone of any child's education. We need parents to be involved in the day to day operations of the schools. The school has several committees and booster organizations that are focused on making the school a highly productive, wonderful place to be.

Does the school have VPK (Voluntary Pre-K)?

Yes; the class fills up quickly. You may place your child’s name on a waiting list for possible future enrollment.

Does the school have Safety Patrols?

Yes. Fifth grade students will have an opportunity to apply to be a patrol member at the beginning of the school year.

Does the school have an ESE program?

Each school services their own Exceptional Education students (SLD, EMH, etc.), so we will service our own students. For exceptionalities that require more support there are center schools. Rock Lake will not be a center site.

How many students will be attending the school?

Our current enrollment is around 400.

What kind of technology does the school have?

Each classroom is equipped with 3 student computers, a Teacher computer, a video presenter, a document camera, an interactive whiteboard, and audio enhancement (for teachers to wear a microphone). The school also has 2 computer labs.

Do the students wear uniforms?

Yes. The use of uniforms promotes a sense of discipline and brings us together as one team as we focus on academics. Students no longer feel pressured to conform to the fashion of their classmates. They can then focus on other means of expression and activities such as music, art, and sports. The sense of community also helps to promote school spirit.

Is there sand on the playground?

No.

Will the students be able to use iReady?

Yes.

Does the school have security cameras?

Yes.

What do we do when there is a delayed dismissal?

The District’s Delayed Dismissal Weather procedures requires that when lightning is within a certain distance, a delayed dismissal procedure must be activated. Students will not be dismissed until 30 minutes has passed from the last sound of thunder, or until lightning is no longer within the radius.

In the event we enter into a Delayed Dismissal, all parents/families may either wait in the parent-pick up line until the 30 minutes has passed and we resume standard dismissal process, or park their vehicles, and walk to the front office to check their student(s) out. We will put the call out through School Messenger, our social media accounts, as well as our visibile school marquee.
