Weekly Announcements

Dear Rock Creek Families: 

Our first early release day is this Wednesday on September 16.   Our students attending in school will dismiss at 1:10 PM.   Our virtual learners will end their school day at 1:30 PM.  We will follow the dismissal instructions for your student that you submitted during the online registration process through Parent Portal.   If your child is not following their typical dismissal routine, please communicate with them and remind them.  To double check what we have in the system or to update the plan, please call school on Monday or Tuesday and our office staff will be happy to assist you.   636-980-1800    If you need to make a change on Wednesday, please call before 11 AM.   

Parent-Teacher Conferences - Wednesday, October 28  5-8 PM & Thursday, October 29  10 AM - 8 PM 

Please mark your calendar for parent-teacher conferences.  All conferences will be virtual using Webex video conferences.   Conferences are scheduled in 20 minute time slots.  There will not be school on October 29 and October 30. We will send out information next week regarding conferences and how to sign up.   A text will be sent when the conference schedule is open and ready for you to pick your time.   Parents of virtual students will be receiving separate communication regarding conferences from your child's teacher. 


Intruder Drill: 
 On Monday, we will hold the first of our quarterly intruder drills.  An all school announcement will occur, students and staff will be notified this is just a drill and walked through the drill process of locking classroom doors.  Due to the need to socially distance, students will remain in their desks.   Teachers will talk to students about where to hide in the classroom in the event of a real emergency situation.   

FZ's COVID-19 Dashboard   Use the dashboard on the FZ district website to view the number of staff and students who have tested positive.  This will be updated weekly and can be accessed through the link or the tab in the middle of the homepage of the district website.  


Tuesday, September 15:  Bus Evacuation Drills upon arrival.   Students will follow driver instructions, leaving all of their belongings on the bus and moving to the back of the bus to exit through the emergency door. They will "sit and scoot" out of the bus and gather in a location away from the bus.
