Virtual Backpack

Welcome to Rockdale School's Virtual Backpack page!

The backpack will be split into school-related flyers and community-related flyers.

As for the community related flyers, we are distributing educational information through the school district to inform you of other community activities or services available. Approval of material to be shared is at the sole discretion of Rockdale School District 84.

If you like to post a flyer on our virtual backpack, please email us at
