Rockwood Connect - is our automatic notification system that delivers voice and/or email messages. Parents will receive important information, such as emergency notifications, school closings due to inclement weather, and other school news through this messaging system - but only if the district has your correct household contact information! If there has been any changes to your address, e-mail or phone number please e-mail Heather Reisig our Registrar, the updated information. email@example.com
Infinite Campus: Parents are able to view their child's progress reports and report cards through the parent portal of Infinite Campus. In order to have access to the parent portal and receive your password, you will need to complete the form and bring it to the Registrar's office with a picture ID. You can do this at any time.
In order to maintain a safe environment for our students, our visitors will be asked to provide a driver's license when they arrive at the school check-in center.
Our MHS security attendant will quickly scan the license, which will automatically populate an enrollment screen, gather any additional information, and check the person into the school.
During this screening process, the system will scan a nationally compiled sex offender database.
When the visitor is cleared, the system will create a customized badge that includes the name, date, time, and destination in the building.
Then, the visitor will wear this badge while in the building, allowing for easy identification of all guests.
Students who ride the bus need to click on the provided web link in order to view the most recent bus routes. Rockwood’s Transportation information:

Your student’s bus and another bus will be consistently parked in the same lane each day at dismissal in front or back of the school. It is important to note that depending on which bus arrives for dismissal first will determine which bus will be parked in the front or back of each lane. Students will be notified of their bus lane assignments during 7th period on the first day of school. It is important that they know their bus number. Students who do not know their bus number can receive assistance in the commons after school.
Parent Drop-Off Before School
Parent drop-off will be directed by our staff and/or our police officer in the morning. Parents will enter the parking lot and turn into the loop in front of the building. There are TWO lanes. One lane is for the buses (outer lane) and one lane is for cars (inner lane). Please stay in the car lane and follow the staff member’s directions in order to keep a safe and efficient process. There are two drop off lanes in which we ask you to pull forward as this allows more cars to drop off at the same time. Drop off can take some time and we suggest that you arrive early in order to allow your child to make it to class on time. School starts at 8:28 am.
Early Pick-Up/ Parking Directions
If you plan to pick up your child early, you may use the large loop in front of the building until 2:30 p.m. You will be asked to check in with our parking attendant, and then you will be permitted into the loop. Your child will sign out in their grade level office as well as the hall monitor station near the Welcome Center, and then meet you at the car. Keep in mind that no cars will be allowed into the loop in front of the building after 2:30 p.m. Additionally, no cars are allowed to be in the Bus Lanes after 2:30 p.m. This is to ensure all vehicles are safe and that the buses can park in the appropriate location. After 2:30 p.m., you will need to wait in the parent pick-up line along the stadium field. If you need to park, you will need to use the overflow spots in the back of the Student/Staff Parking area. Please see a parking attendant for more information.
Parent Pick-Up After School
Parent pick-up will be lined up along the stadium field. The Kehrs Mill gate will be exit only. Parents will enter off of Clarkson Road, and then go into the 1st entrance of the student parking lot. Then they will exit out the second entrance of that lot and form a line along the football field. Both sides of the road will be blocked to through-traffic to allow parents to leave once their child arrives.
Rear Kehrs Mill Lot
Students are allowed to enter via the upper Kehrs Mill parking lot between 8am and 8:28am. The Kehrs Mill Parking Lot is unavailable for Marquette student pick up. All pick up needs to be done in front of the building via the Clarkson Road entrance and should follow the protocols listed above in the "Early Pick-Up/Parking Directions" section.
Kehrs Mill Gate
This entrance is only allowed to be open at certain times of the day according to municipality regulations. The gate will be opened for arriving students, parents, and teachers from 7:05 until 8:30 am. The Kehrs Mill gate will be reopened for exit only from approximately 3:00 until 4:00 pm. After some major events, the gate will be opened for departing vehicles.
Late Start Days
Students are not permitted to be on campus prior to 9:30 a.m. on late start days. Bus schedules will be adjusted on those days to accommodate a late drop off time. Buses will pick up 90 minutes later at the same stop. http://www.rsdmo.org/calendar/1819/High%20School%20ABC%20Calendars/2018-2019%20Marquette%20ABC%20Calendar.pdf
Early Release Days
This year all four high schools will have four early release/professional development days. School will end at 12:38pm. Parent pick up will follow the same format as all other days. The bus parking lot will be closed at 11:30am. http://www.rsdmo.org/calendar/1819/2018-19%20School%20Start%20and%20Dismissal%20Times.pdf
Any questions about picking up or dropping of students can be directed to the Welcome Center or your child’s grade level office. The school’s phone number is (636) 891-6000.
The large enrollment at Marquette High School limits the availability of parking permits to a limited number juniors and seniors. licensed seniors receive priority on the day of orientation and the remaining parking permits were assigned using a lottery system to juniors. Priority is always given to students sharing a spot. Only those students with permanent parking permits will be allowed to drive on the first day of school. We will not be able to accommodate students who drive to school without a permanent parking permit. Students who do so will be ticketed and receive school discipline. There are approximately 50 students currently on the waiting list.
If your student received a permit during orientation, it is imperative that it is hung on the rearview mirror.
Monetary fines and/or discipline will be issued to students who:
Park without a permit
Fail to display a valid permit on their rearview mirror
Fail to park in their spot
Park illegally (Students may also be ticketed by the Clarkson Valley Police)
If you have any concerns or issues regarding the parking lot, please contact our parking lot supervisor Mrs. Caruso, or Mrs. Grimes in the Senior Office in Room 161.
A very limited number of daily permits will be available beginning Tuesday, August 14, 2018. These limited daily parking permits are available for students with extenuating circumstances; i.e., doctor’s appointments, funerals, etc. and are available on a very restricted basis at a cost of $5.00 per day. Sophomores will be limited to no more than three daily permits per semester. There is no limit to the number of daily permits available to juniors and seniors. A daily permit must be purchased in the Welcome Center the day before it is needed. These are on a first-come, first served basis. The parking attendant will receive a list of approved daily permits each morning.
As we look forward to another successful year at Marquette providing our students with an excellent education, we certainly appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
