Service restored to 4 schools


Update: The phone lines and computer network are back in operation at Nashold, Riverdahl and Froberg elementary schools and Jefferson High School. ​

There will be sporadic telephone and computer network outages beginning at 4 p.m. today at 22 Rockford Public Schools. Service to those schools will be restored by tomorrow morning.

The outages are necessary to repair a damaged cable serving Nashold, Riverdahl and Froberg Elementary Schools and Jefferson High School. The phones and computer network will remain down at those schools, and a temporary phone line has been set up. You may call the school's regular number. Calls are being rerouted to a temporary phone line. You may need to leave a voice mail.

The affected schools for the sporadic outages are: Auburn and Roosevelt Alternative High Schools; Kennedy, West and RESA Middle Schools; Beyer, Conklin, Ellis, King, Lathrop, Lewis Lemon, McIntosh, Walker, Welsh and West View Elementary Schools; Haskell Year-Round Academy; Barbour Two-Way Language Immersion​; Washington Academy; Maria Montessori; Thurgood Marshall School; and Dennis and Summerdale Early Childhood Centers. Temporary service is not available to these schools. 

We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
