News & Communication

We have amazing students, staff and alumni! And at Rock Ridge Public Schools, we love to tell their stories and to help our community shine. On this page you will find communication information and resources, recent news stories, branding and marketing resources, and more. If you have a great story idea that you want to share, send it to us at [email protected] or contact Stacie Lamppa, Administrative Assistant, at (218) 742-3900.





    We use PowerSchool as our school communication system. It allows us to send phone calls and emails to Rock Ridge families. The system uses contact information that you enter into PowerSchool. We use PowerSchool to communicate emergency information quickly as well as important information and alerts. Schools and programs also use this system to send important information and reminders. Therefore, it is important that you keep your contact information up to date so that you receive all of the alerts and notices from your child’s school and from the District. Please contact your child’s school for assistance in setting up your PowerSchool account or other PowerSchool questions.


    Each August before the new school year begins, a district-wide flyer is mailed out to all Rock Ridge families. It contains principal welcome letters, fun write-ups about new staff, staff lists, early childhood information, school calendar, food service information, athletic and activities information, important telephone numbers, and more. This is a great resource to keep on hand and use throughout the school year!

    The Rock Ridge Reporter is RRPS’ monthly newsletter geared towards Rock Ridge families as well as our community members. It highlights each of our five schools throughout Eveleth and Virginia. It includes photos and articles from various classrooms and grade levels regarding educational activities, school-spirited fun, student achievements, and more. The Rock Ridge Reporter is emailed to all families, students, staff, and community members on the first Friday of every month during the school year.

    Please email [email protected] if you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive this newsletter in your inbox!

    Pursuant to the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, members of the community may submit requests for public data by contacting our office. Upon receiving a data request, we will confirm receipt and provide a tentative timeline for fulfillment.

    Prior to fulfilling a request, we may contact you if we need clarification or to arrange other details related to the request.

    In order to complete a request, we will do one of the following:

    • If we do not have the data, we will notify you in writing as soon as reasonably possible.
    • If we have the data but it is not public data, we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible and specify in writing the reason for the decision to withhold the data.
    • If we have the data and it is public data, we will respond to the request appropriately and promptly, within a reasonable amount of time by doing one of the following:
      • Arrange a date, time and place to inspect data if the request is to look at the data.
      • Provide copies of the data as soon as reasonably possible if copies are requested. You can choose to pick up the copies, of have the information mailed or faxed to you. Electronic copies will be provided upon request if the data is currently kept in an electronic format.
