Dear Rock Creek Parents:  

Attendance for week of 2.10.20:  92%   We are far from meeting our attendance goal of 96%.  Many students have been ill.  Please help avoid the spread of contagious illness by keeping your child home if they have a fever. Continue to encourage hand washing, and catching coughs and sneezes in their elbows.  Thank you to all parents who are calling and reporting diagnoses of influenza, strep throat, etc.   Hopefully, all will feel better after a three day weekend.
