At left, security at Rocky Branch Elementary is improved by a new entrance built over the summer. When visitors come in, they will be directed into the office before they will be allowed into the school.
At right, changes to River Falls High School include the addition of a new set of doors. These new doors will enhance security by moving visitors through the office before they have access to the school.

New school year means changes
As students around the district enjoy the last few days of summer vacation, teachers and staff are busy making preparations for the 2012-13 school year.
School start times have been moved 15 minutes later. After a comprehensive study and survey given to parents, teachers and staff, the school board made the decision to move start times back 15 minutes. See individual schools for start and end times.
