Parents

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Family,

 

Welcome to Rosemont Middle School or Welcome Back! First and foremost, my top priority is to help your child transition to middle school and prepare them for high school and beyond. Nevertheless, this is also a big transition for you!  I know it can be scary sending your kids off to a big school with several teachers; however, the Rosemont staff is always willing and available to help.  If you have any questions about Rosemont, please visit our school website. Otherwise, please email me with any questions, comments, or concerns. 

IEP Information

Within the fist month of school you should have recevied a letter informing you of your child's case carrier.  If you are unsure of your child's case carrier, please email either of our department chairs at nritthamel@gusd.net or pbrewer@gusd.net.  

 

Your child may have their case carrier as a teacher for one or more classes, depending on their schedule.  It is also possible that your child does not have their case carrier as their teacher if they are enrolled in all general education classes. Regardless, your child's case carrier is your point of contact should you have any questions or concerns regarding services, accommodations, or any other information pertaining to their IEP.

 

Please remember, you always have the right to request an IEP meeting.  Nevertheless, opening up the lines of communication, prior to an IEP, with your child's case carrier and teachers is a great way to work as a team and ensure your child's needs are being met.

My student's teacher doesn't use parent portal.  What do I do?

  • I recommend writing down the emails, websites, and grade access options for each of your child's teachers - keep it all in one place!
     

  • You can make a note in your phone or put it all on one sheet a paper and stick it on the fridge - whatever works best for you!

Tips for Parents
  • Please look in your child's Reminder Binder at least twice a week.

 

  • If your child struggles with turning in assignments on time, please email their teachers on a weekly or bi-monthly basis.

 

  • Login to Parent Portal on a regular basis.

  • Try and spend 10 -15 minutes a day doing fun activities that can reinforce reading, math, and organization skills.

    • Flash Cards​

    • Board Games

    • Reading to your child
       

  • If homework becomes a nightly battle and extends multiple hours, contact your child's case carrier to see if there are some alternative options.
     

  • Positively reinforce your child for the little things:

    • Remembering to fill in agenda​

    • Putting papers in their binder

    • Working hard on an assignment

Parent Portal

Parents! This is where you can access your child's grades online.  Not all teachers use the district's online grading system; however, you can view your child's current grades for the teachers who use it by clicking the button below.  

  • In order to access Parent Portal, you need to visit the counseling office at Rosemont to receive your login information.  You must request this information in person with your ID.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING YOUR KIDS! 

YOU ROCK!
