Frequently Asked Questions

Adventure Club will be offered for elementary families as part of the gradual phase-in process. Adventure Club will be closed in the event of a school or district-wide closure.​
In order to maximize health and safety, all staff members, students and visitors will wear cloth face coverings at Rockwood schools and on school buses.
Field trips and all-school assemblies are not currently allowed.  Virtual field trips may be considered when possible.
We understand the benefits of children being outside during this time, especially at recess. Teachers will be encouraged to bring their students outdoors as an extension of the classroom when weather permits.​

Families with children in Rockwood schools have the option of:

  • Rockwood At Home online education
  • Rockwood At School in-person education five days a week

Each elementary school will have different enrollment numbers depending on the parent preference of the two options. 

Rockwood is offering an in-person, five days a week program for our students in pk-12th grade. The daily schedule will look like a regular, full-day schedule, and the hours are listed on the individual school websites.​

​Gifted services will continue through the home school.

Special education services will continue as outlined in the IEP or distance learning plan.
Rockwood cannot mandate that anyone be tested.

However, the district is following the guidelines put forth by St. Louis County and pediatric infectious disease specialists at Washington University that do require some MD evaluation for individuals with two or more low-risk symptoms OR one high-risk symptom before they return to school. A doctor may recommend testing if the situation calls for it in their opinion. 

If a family refuses an MD evaluation and allows a student with a sore throat and fever to come to school, the district would treat that as a positive case, and the child would be excluded for 10 days past symptom onset, have to be fever-free for 24 hours prior to returning and have an improving sore throat.​
Individual teachers will handle quarantined students just as they would with any other absence. They will collaborate with the student and family to keep the learning going and minimize interruptions to their education.

Districtwide virtual learning days are scheduled on Friday, April 16; Friday, April 23; and Friday, April 30.​

Virtual days are when in-person learners stay home from school and connect with their teacher and online classmates via Zoom with learning activities.

Virtual learning days will offer students and teachers the opportunity to engage in online learning activities in the virtual classroom.

Virtual learning days offer teachers additional office hours to connect with students who may need extra help. These days will also help teachers prepare for even higher quality instruction for students in both educational models. 

Virtual learning days will offer all students additional time and support with social and emotional learning with the curriculum provided by our student services team.

Virtual learning days offer support staff the time to conduct important tasks, such as contact tracing, deep cleaning the school, and training on safety and health procedures.
