October will mark two years since Rockford Public Schools has used the 205 VIBE to tell its own story. We appreciate each and every one of our students, staff, community members and parents who took the time to share their experiences on the 205 VIBE podcast, video section and blog. So far we've read, watched and listened to your stories through 367 blog posts, 19 videos and 24 podcasts. Thank you for making a difference through each contribution.
I'd like to shoutout our top bloggers from last school year: Anthony Stone, Aryan Arora, Brian Weavel, Duska Booker, Gracie Caltagerone, Hillary Cook-Harris and Jeff Snedegar. Thank you for being a part of something special.

I want to extend a sincere thank you to our families for making a timely decision to help us plan.
Schools are still missing some registration packets for the 2020-21 school year, so each school will host a limited in-person registration event.
Registration packets for the 2020-21 school year were mailed to all RPS 205 families earlier this summer.
If a family does not submit the survey, students will – by default – be enrolled in in-person instruction, and transportation will not be provided.
You will be asked to complete an electronic survey to make your choice for either full-time remote instruction or in-person instruction for the upcoming school year.
