"In the Know"
It is important that district employees know as much as possible about Rock Hill Schools. In addition to all the information that comes from your school or the district office, please check out the district's Facebook page and website (note special tabs at bottom of page). It's true, the amount of information is overwhelming, but you need to be "in the know." And, if there's something on a district level that you want to know, and you can't find it, contact Information Services at 981-1005 or email
