School closings, or early school dismissal, will be announced on the Rockwood website as soon as the decision is made.
Once a decision has been made to close, the superintendent will use Rockwood Connect to send a voicemail message and text message to Rockwood parents informing them of the decision to cancel classes.
The successful delivery of information is dependent upon two things:
Accurate contact information for each student. If your contact information changes, please notify the school registrar immediately.
Technology requirements and answering machine settings. Be sure to say "Hello" when you answer the phone. The technology must hear a voice to begin the delivery of the message.
If the decision is made the night before, the Rockwood Connect messages will go out as informational messages to primary and secondary mobile phone numbers provided for each student.
If the decision to close school is made after 6 a.m. the morning of the cancellation, the Rockwood Connect messages will go out as emergency messages to all phone numbers listed for each student.
In addition, parents who have downloaded the Rockwood app will receive a push noticfation. They can also find accurate information about district school closings on Rockwood's social media websites - Facebook (RockwoodSchools) and Twitter (@RockwoodSchools) as well as on the following radio and television stations:
