Rock Ridge

A 2023-2024 School Year Update from Principal Mark Winter

Greetings Rock Ridge High School Families,

I hope you are having an enjoyable summer.

As we get closer to the start of the 2023-24 school year, I wanted to provide you with some information so you can plan accordingly.

On Thursday, August 31, ALL students and families are invited to the Rock Ridge High School Open House from 9:00am – 4:00pm. During this time, students will tour the building, get school pictures taken, receive an iPad, get class schedules, meet their teachers, buy a parking pass, and more. This day will help students become familiar with the building and take care of miscellaneous items that typically occur during the first few days of school.

The first days of school will look different from previous years. We will be staggering the start days of the school year to help become acclimated with the new building. Please mark your calendars for the following dates.

  • Tuesday, September 5 – Only 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students will be attending.
  • Wednesday, September 6 – Only the 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students will attend.
  • Thursday September 7 – ALL students will attend.

A few other reminders:

Campus will be closed during lunch and study halls. The only students who should be leaving school are those students who are PSEO or have appointments that are excused by a parent or guardian.

Parking space is limited on the Rock Ridge High School campus. All highway approved vehicles will be required to purchase a $20 parking permit to park in the school parking lot. All vehicles must park in an approved parking space. Parking permits will go on sale the week prior to school starting. Due to the limited parking we are encouraging students to carpool. Priority for purchasing parking passes will first be given to Seniors, then Juniors, Sophomores, etc.
