Get Connected

Rochester Public Schools is committed to providing convenient and easily accessible communication methods to parents, teachers, students and community members. Simply, we want to stay connected with you! 

Get Social

Follow us on social media, on our blog, or subscribe to our monthly newsletters.

Facebook is utilized by a number of our schools and by the District to share stories about what is happening on a day-to-day basis. 

Twitter lets you follow along with the district, but is also embraced by many of our principals and teachers to help share special moments in our schools.

YouTube allows you to catch up on School Board Meetings, Concerts, Plays, and so much more that you might have missed.
