Inclement Weather
In the event Prince William County Schools cancel afternoon and evening activities, students will be sent home by their usual method. Information on school closings and delays can be found on PWCS.edu as well as on the Rockledge website. Please check the website before calling the school. Information is posted on the website and emails may be sent before the school is notified. The letter to parents from the Superintendent regarding school closings and delays is available on pwcs.edu: "News and Updates", "Closings, Delays and Emergencies", "Inclement Weather school Delays & Closings". You can also click here to be directed to the letter. 

 
SACC and Inclement Weather
The School Age Child Care (SACC) program does not operate during inclement weather closings. When school is closed, SACC is closed. If school closes early due to inclement weather, parents will be notified and can implement their alternative plan for weather related or other emergency closings. Parents who have children registered in the SACC program should have completed an "Inclement Weather and Emergency Dismissal Form," which details the this alternative plan. When the School Division cancels after-school and/or evening activities, all SACC students must be picked up before 5 p.m. See the SACC brochure for more complete details or visit the SACC Web site.
Rockledge Elementary Designated 2014 School of Excellence

Our students have the distinction of attending a newly named PWCS School of Excellence. This is the 13th year Rockledge has earned the coveted title.

School of Excellence is the highest recognition awarded to schools by the PWCS School Board. It signifies high levels of performance on state accreditation, Annual Measurable Objectives, and in moving toward the goals of the Division's Strategic Plan.

Congratulations to everyone who helped to earn this important indicator of student success.

Information On Healthy Snacks
Last month a letter was sent home regarding health and wellness. It outlined the need to arrange with your child's teacher in advance if you are interested in bringing snacks to school. You can click here to see a copy of that letter. We are also including the Healthy Special Day form and the Healthy Refreshment Idea form. These forms will be available year round on the side link under: Parents, Health and Wellness. Thank you for your assistance in making this a healthy school year!

Are you interested in becoming more involved in your child's school? Consider becoming a part of the Rockledge Advisory Council. Council members have an opportunity to learn more about what is happening at Rockledge.

The meetings are held in the library on the first Thursday of each month and will follow this schedule:
  
February 5, 6 - 6:30 (all invited to participate in PTA meeting following this meeting)
