Parent Communication & Archived Broadcasts

Communication is very important to the success of Rochester Catholic Schools and to the students and families we serve. Our system of schools embrace and encourage open and positive communication between home and school. Your questions and concerns are among our top priorities, and we will do our best to respond to your email and phone call inquiries within 24-hours.

Weekly Broadcast

Rochester Catholic Schools will enroll all families to receive our electronic newsletters delivered via email every Friday and/or the last day of the school week. If you do not have access to email, please notify your school office and a paper copy will be provided for you. We strongly encourage our parents to read our weekly broadcast as it includes important news, dates, and information regarding school activities and events.

Weekly Take Home Folders

Teachers send home take home folders at the end of each week. The weekly take home folder is the main source of regular communication between school and parents. These folders contain student work, progress updates, and notices from the teacher or school office. Some teachers utilize weekly or monthly newsletters as well.

Conferences

Formal conferences are held twice a year in October and February. We welcome parent requests for student conferences outside these two time-frames as well. Because student learning and formation is our priority, the RCS staff is committed to being available to support you and your student. Please check your school's calendar for specific dates and times.

Weather Alerts

When the weather affects school, Rochester Catholic Schools will send timely electronic communications to our parents, guardians, and other stakeholders regarding late starts, early dismissals, and school closings. Parent communications will be sent via email, voice, and text messaging. As well, public postings will be made on local TV and radio stations, RCS website, and social media sites.

Please know that the actual determination about weather related closures are made by the Transportation Department of the Rochester Public Schools in cooperation with the bus companies.
