Pre-School Screenings:
Rockridge School District Preschool Screening is for children ages 3, 4, and 5 (and not enrolled in Kindergarten). Preschool screening is used to help you learn more about your child’s development. The screening provides language, motor, and cognitive skill assessments. Children should be screened once a year until starting Kindergarten. This screening also helps us identify students eligible for our preschool services.
Screenings will be held Wednesday, April 21st & Tuesday, May 4th from 2:30 to 5:30 pm at Taylor Ridge Elementary School. Screenings are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call 309-736-1111 to make an appointment.

Transportation Updates:
Here are a couple friendly reminders in order to keep our students safe and on time to school.... 
* Please be at your designated pick up location before the bus arrives. 
* Please allow a 10-minute window (5 minutes before/after) for the bus to arrive. We are still adjusting with the time and minor changes, so please be patient with your driver. 
* Please make sure masks are out of book bags and on when the bus pulls up. 
* Please make sure self-certification forms are in hand and ready to show the drivers when they arrive. 
*Food and drink are prohibited on every school bus. 
*Students are only allowed to ride their assigned bus. At this time we are not allowing students to ride home with other friends/family on a different school bus. 

We look forward to providing continuous and safe transportation to our precious cargo. Again BRAVO and THANK YOU!
