Online Registration

Emails were sent out in the beginning of August with instructions on how to access and complete your child’s online registration. DPS has moved to a digital platform for registration and enrollment and this was rolled out in August. The district would like for every family to complete online registration for their students so that we have the most up to date and current information for your child’s PowerSchool record. If you have not already done so, please use the access information found in that email sent at the beginning of August and go online to complete your child’s digital registration for the 2020-2021 school year. If you cannot find the email or if you did not receive one, please contact the school and give us a valid email address so that we can send you your personalized registration codes. Thank you in advance for your assistance in completing this very important registration process for your child!

Absence Notes

Parents, you may send your absence notes to our data manger, Ms. Lisa Richmond at

Parents, even though we are learning remotely, school is still important and keeping your children on a schedule is recommended. We have students not logging in for Discovery as well as some who are arriving to class late and leaving class early. If you are having connection issues, please email your teachers. Please help us communicate to students that their learning is valued and important.


Counselor’s Tip

"As we continue to maneuver throughout the school year, remember to find time to care for yourself and add activities that allow you to rest and rejuvenate. In order to get through each challenge the best we can, we must care for ourselves the best way we can." 


If technical difficulties keep your child from logging on, please call the main office by dialing 919-560-3970, to inform our receptionist, Ms. Simpson or our data manager, Ms. Richmond. Your child will be excused and we will help you problem solve. In addition, you may complete a help ticket located on our website.  Please contact us anytime as we work together to meet the needs of our students.

Thank you for making Rogers-Herr an extraordinary place to learn work and grow! We look forward to seeing all of our students bright and early Monday morning. As always, Rams ROCK!!!
