SPECIAL NOTE:  Rochester Community Schools will be changing its physical forms for the 2017-2018 school year.  We will be using the MHSAA (Michigan High School Athletic Association) physical form now.  The physical is good from April 16, 2017 through April 15, 2018.  This is the physical form you will be giving to your doctor to fill out and you as parents will also be filling out and signing for the next school year. Please see the Reuther Athletic Website for the new form, instructions and a sample of a completed form.

Special Note from the Rochester Community School District Administration Team:

Thursday/Friday night High School football and other athletic games that occur during the week are wonderful community and family events.  We encourage our families to attend and enjoy the games and all of the festivities.  These events are not designed, however, for under age students, even those at the middle school level, to attend without parents.  For the safety of all of our students and families, if you are attending a high school football or any other sporting contest during the school year with your children, please keep them within your sight at all times.  We also appreciate your support if it becomes necessary for an adult to appropriately re-direct a child's behavior.  Any student who is asked to leave a game due to poor choices may lose the privilege of attending future games, which may affect the games into their high schoolyears.  We appreciate the cooperation of our parent community.
