Weekly Announcements

Dear Rock Creek Families: 


We are so excited to share this news with you this week.   To read more about the rankings and the stats of RCE, view this online information from U.S. News & World Report.   By the way, you can also view our district's middle school and high school information by using the filters.   Families, we continue to thank you for all of the support you provide for your children, our teachers and staff, and the partnership you have formed with your child's teacher to make this achievement possible.  We succeed by working together! 


How to Visit Rock Creek Elementary and our New Raptor Visitor Management System - please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with being a visitor in our school and our new background check system.  We were excited to welcome a few parents back to lunch this past week.  You can join us, too.  ADVANCED REGISTRATIONS ARE REQUIRED!

Highlights of Volunteers and Visitors Protocols:

  • Volunteers in classrooms will be at the teacher’s discretion.

  • No more than 2 parents/guardians will be able to volunteer for each class at a time.

  • All volunteers and visitors will need to complete wellness, temperature and background checks.

  • Lunch: 

    • Only 5 students per lunch period may have visitors.

    • Only 2 family members per child will be permitted.
