All summer work permits expire the first week of school and students who continue to work after school begins will need to renew their work permit.

Rocklin Unified School District Water Use

The District is working aggressively to reduce the use of water and to comply with the latest drought requirements. The District has been staying ahead of the restrictions by acting responsibly and aggressively. California is now into it’s fourth consecutive year of drought conditions and as a large water user, the District is tasked with managing this limited resource.

The District produced a “FAQ” sheet for the community, providing guidance on how to report problems with run off or damaged sprinklers.  To read the “FAQ” sheet, CLICK HERE.
