SOCIAL MEDIA: Students be reminded that it is strongly recommended that you are not to be on social media during school hours. Remember someone is out there watching a waiting.
Chain of Command: For Rock County Public Schools Activities and for the North Central Athletics, the following chain of command is in effect: (1) Activity Sponsor/Coach (2) Activities Director (3) Principal (4) Superintendent. If you have any concerns, please first contact the appropriate coach/sponsor.
7-12 GRADE ACADEMIC POLICY: The Rock County Public Schools Board of Education believes that academic achievement is important at every grade level. In the absence of credit requirements set forth by the Nebraska department of Education for students in grades 7 & 8, and in an effort to address academic achievement for students in grades 9-12, the local board of education will require a one hour mandatory Monday thru Thursday study hall after school beginning at 3:31 and ending at 4:31. This study hall requires any student in grades 7-12 whose name appears on the weekly ineligible list to attend. On days in which early dismissals are scheduled and Fridays, there will be no study hall. The mandatory attendance requirement may be temporarily waived if and only if the parent/guardian contacts the administration prior to the absence with a credible reason. The administration may also waive the mandatory attendance for an unusual or unforeseen circumstance. Any student choosing not to attend will be subject to further disciplinary action as deemed appropriate by the administration. The list will be generated around 2:30 on Fridays and toward the end of the day the last day of the shortened week. The list of students required to attend after school study hall will be posted in the hallway throughout the week so students will not forget to attend. Students choosing not to attend and not be being excused will be required to make up the missed time. Parents/guardians will receive and e-mail and letter in the mail notifying them of their child's mandatory attendance for the following week. Students will also be notified and handed written notification.
DANGEROUS ITEMS: Students are not to bring dangerous items to school. Such items include, but are not limited to: guns, knives, firecrackers, and weapons of any kind. Such items will be confiscated. The student bringing such items to school is subject to long-term suspension/expulsion, and the items may be turned over to law enforcement agencies for further action.
