RRMS Football Implements NFL "Heads Up Tackling" Program
If you think concussions are a hot topic in the NFL, talk to the football coaching staff at Rocky River Middle School. Coaches Jamey Pfahl (8th Grade Head Football Coach) and Frank O’Grady (7th Grade), along with their lineup of assistants, are focusing a significant part of their team development on training players to protect their heads. That training, based on an NFL initiative called “Heads Up Tackling,” is one half of the two-pronged approach the coaches are taking. The other half is in the form of top-of-the-line equipment, provided to the team by a group of RRHS graduates and former Pirate Football players known as The Marooners. 
Information for Parents Concerning Data Release
A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

Online Forms and Fee Pay
The district has developed a Parent Portal, where parents can go online to verify the directory information we have on file for their child(ren), make changes if necessary, and submit all beginning-of-the-year forms electronically (Emergency Medical Authorization, Internet/Email Use, Photo Permission, Junior/Senior Option, RRHS Student Parking, etc). This electronic submission takes the place of paper forms.  Access the Parent Portal here. 
Childcare Transportation Requests
Parents needing transportation service to/from a childcare provider must complete this online form by July 31 in order for transportation service to begin on the first day of school. Forms received after July 31 will not go into effect until September 2.
