Rochester Community Schools supports all efforts to keep our community safe and our children in school buildings. We remain committed to following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the Oakland County Health Division (OCHD), and the American Academy of Pediatric.

It is recommended that parents and caregivers assess risk factors within their own families when making personal choices about wearing a mask. The MDHHS states that those with chronic illnesses or who are immunocompromised could benefit from masking indoors.

We continue to reinforce that at no time will students or staff be discriminated against for their vaccination or mask-wearing preferences. RCS abides by a respect code that ensures all members of our community will be safe, valued and respected.

The CDC, MDHHS and the OCHD continue to support layered mitigation strategies to prevent the spread of illness, which can include masks, vaccinations, testing if exposed or symptomatic, frequent hand washing, and staying home when sick.

With the updated guidance, schools are not required to contact trace for COVID-19. For questions regarding the OCHD school quarantine and isolation guidance, families can contact the OCHD Nurse on Call at 800-848-5533.

Learning Options

Families living within the greater Rochester area have two learning options to consider for their students for the 2022-23 school year. They include:

  • IN-PERSON LEARNING
  • RCS VIRTUAL CAMPUS offering full-time online instruction. This is a joint learning partnership that includes the child, the family, and the RCS teaching team. Families can select a semester (6-12), trimester (K-5), or yearlong commitment.

Whether families choose in-person instruction or the RCS Virtual Campus, students will be taught by highly skilled, caring RCS teachers and receive the same world-class instruction and academic credit that our community has come to expect. To enhance learning in any setting, the district has moved to a 1:1 technology model so all students have access to a device.
