Community Health Indicators

​​​​​​​​​​​​Over the past few months, Rockwood has continued our regular collaboration with superin​tendents, medical professionals, and healthcare professionals. These indicators are a starting point, and one of the many factors we may consider in the health of our own school community. As always, the driving force behind any decision-making ​is the safety and well-being of students, staff and scho​ol communities.

Please know that the data reflect information provided by St. Louis County Department of Public Health, as well as information compiled by EducationPlus; it may be subject to change if we get updates from these community organizations​.​

This data was last updated on 2​​/24​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​/21​.​​​​​​​ We update this information on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Data will not be posted on ​ days in which the district is​ closed​.​

Target of moving to 1.00 or less. Above 1.0 means increasing the spread, and under 1.0 means reducing the spread of the virus.​​​​
