Parking

Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Students who park in the school lots must display a valid parking permit.  Vehicles not displaying a valid parking permit may receive an RHS Parking Violation and a possible fine.  Student parking is NOT permitted in the RAC lot or in visitor and staff parking (parking at the RAC or visitor/staff parking spaces will be towed).  

All student drivers must purchase a parking permit and park ONLY in designated parking areas at RHS and RMS:

  • Seniors and juniors can park in the main lot, RHS Performing Arts Center, and the student section of the RMS lot.  
  • Sophomores must park in the RMS lot.
  • Students must possess a valid driver's license to purchase a parking permit.
  • Rogers High School reserves the right to close sales due to parking lots being at full capacity.
  • RHS will issue one permit to each student who completes both the payment and web form.  Whether early/ late arrival, PSEO, or part-time, the parking permit fee is $90.00.  

Please visit our WEBSITE to purchase a parking permit.

Vehicles not displaying a permit or parked in locations other than designated areas are subject to ticketing/towing.

School Resource Officer (SRO)

Detective / SRO Amy Berglund has transitioned back to patrol duties, as her 5-year assignment as School Resource Officer (SRO) has reached its end. Det. Berglund was the RHS SRO for the past 3 years. Detective Adam Dupic, who has been the SRO at Rogers Middle School since 2019, has now transitioned to Rogers High School. Detective Dupic has been a law enforcement officer for 15 years, and has worked as an SRO for the past 3 years. He is married, and has four children (two middle schoolers, an elementary schooler, and a 10 month old). Dupic is most excited about seeing the 8th graders from when he first became an SRO at RMS as current Seniors at RHS.

With the transition of Detective Berglund and Dupic, Rogers Police and ISD 728 welcome Detective Clayton Justen, who is now assigned as the RMS SRO.

Safety and Internet Filtering at Home
ISD 728 Chromebooks will continue to have filtering to help protect students against harmful and inappropriate online material. 

Despite the District’s attempt to filter and provide additional protections outside of school, parents/guardians still play an important role in supervising their child's internet access and usage. Parents are encouraged to discuss rules for appropriate internet usage, and reinforce lessons of digital citizenship and safety. Please review our technology responsible use guidelines and visit www.isd728.org/Digital-Health-Wellness to learn more about available parent resources.

  • Visit here for more information about what is filtered.  
  • Visit GoGuardain Parent App for information on how parents and guardians can monitor their children's Chromebook browsing activity, and choose to block sites such as YouTube.
