    New Arrival Procedure

     This week we implemented a new procedure for students who arrive after our first bell. This process is meant to help hold students accountable when arriving, as well as creating better communication within our building.  When they arrive, they check in on a chromebook located in our front office.  Students are able to select the reason they are late and what class they are going to, which then emails their corresponding teacher with the information. We are still working out some of kinks, so thank you for being patient! For more information on attendance, please visit HERE

  • ISD 728 PREVENTION & SAFETY: RESOURCES for FAMILIES & PARENTS

     

    Please visit this LINK which contains family and parent resources to support mental health, social and emotional learning (job preparedness skills), safety, alcohol and substance abuse and more.

    Want help talkin to your teen about alcohol or other drugs?

    It’s never too early to have a conversation about alcohol and other drugs. As teens get older, they make more decisions on their own, and also face more temptation and peer pressure. Though it may not seem like it, teens really do hear your concerns. 

    If you are unsure on where to begin or how to start the conversation, review SUP’s Parent Tips and ATOD Checklist and download the "Talk. They Hear You." App designed to help parents and caregivers, educators, and communities:

    • Get Informed. Increase awareness about underage drinking and other drug use.
    • Be Prepared. Introduce skill-building techniques and share available resources and tools.
    • Take Action. Increase actions to help prevent underage drinking and other drug use.

    The app features sample conversation starters, ways to keep the conversation going, an interactive practice simulation section, and the opportunity to earn badges for practicing and having real-life conversations. It also includes a resources section with informative and useful videos, fact sheets, brochures, infographics, guides/toolkits, and more.

    The “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign mobile app is available on the App StoreGoogle Play, and the Microsoft StoreWatch this quick video to learn more about the app and see how it works.

    Advanced Placement Exam Registration 2021-2022

    UPDATE: The office will assign AP exam fees to students enrolled in an AP course once the Board approves the price increase set by CollegeBoard.  Parents may check their student's accounts for the fee(s) to be assigned.

    This year’s AP Exams will be from May 2-12, 2022, at Rogers High School.  The cost for each exam fee is $61.00. Students must register by October 29, 2021, to avoid incurring an additional $40 late fee. (Except for AP Macroeconomics, which meets only in the spring semester and has a final registration date of February 28, 2022.) Students who register can cancel their exams before February 28, 2022. However, all canceled exams incur a $40 Unused Exam Fee.

    There are two steps to complete the AP exam registration:

    1. Create a College Board account online and enroll in the correct course section. Most students have already completed this step with their teacher.
    2. Complete the payment by logging into your Infinite Campus Parent Portal using your personal parent email address username and password.  Choose Fees to view current year assigned fees, payments, or credits for the student.  If you have more than one child in the District, click the Switch Student button to choose a student.  Students who receive free or reduced lunch may be eligible for a fee waiver.  Contact Jessica Zoubek (jessica.zoubek@isd728.org) for more information.

    Both steps must be complete before the deadline.

    In January, their case manager will contact students with an IEP or 504 Plan to request any necessary testing accommodations.   Contact Anne Bartus (anne.bartus@isd728.org), SSD Coordinator, with any questions about accommodations.

    Please email the AP Coordinator, Shane Noecker (shane.noecker@isd728.org), with questions about registering for an AP exam.

  • RHS SHEDS

    Out of Storage?  Let the RHS Construction Students help you!

    Purchase the shed material from the local home improvement store of choice and let the RHS Construction program erect the building.  To meet curriculum requirements, shed dimensions are 8' wide x 12' deep or 10' wide x 12' deep.  Both have 8' high walls that offer over 750 cubic feet of storage space.  Each shed includes a 36" x 36" vinyl-clad window and a 6' x 7' steel roll-up garage door that provides ample light and a door large enough for your riding lawn mower, patio furniture, and other seasonal items.  Textured, pre-primed LP SmartSide, and cedar trim allow the owner to paint or stain using your chosen color. The owner selects the color of architectural roof shingles and other finish/material options available. New shed construction will begin in early February 2022 at the start of the Construction course. 
     
    For more information or to reserve your spot, contact jessica.zoubek@isd728.org or dirk.udee@isd728.org.

    Safety and Internet Filtering at Home
    ISD 728 Chromebooks will continue to have filtering to help protect students against harmful and inappropriate online material. 

    Despite the District’s attempt to filter and provide additional protections outside of school, parents/guardians still play an important role in supervising their child's internet access and usage. Parents are encouraged to discuss rules for appropriate internet usage, and reinforce lessons of digital citizenship and safety. Please review our technology responsible use guidelines and visit www.isd728.org/Digital-Health-Wellness to learn more about available parent resources.

    • Visit here for more information about what is filtered.
