ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – The Rockwood School District will start welcoming middle school and high school students back to campus in November.
Middle school students will begin returning on Wednesday, November 4 with just sixth-grade that day. Thursday, November 5 seventh and eighth-grade students will join them. Rockwood said the extra day for sixth-graders allows for a transition day for the youngest middle-schoolers.
