Welcome to Reeths-Puffer Schools

Located in Rocket City, U.S.A.

You won't find Rocket City on a map, but it does exist. Your GPS won't locate Rocket City either, but it's definitely a destination worth reaching.

 

Rocket City is Reeths-Puffer Schools. Our border stretches over five different townships, but our mission focuses on only one goal: success. Success for our students in the classroom, in college, and in life. Success for our families who roll up their sleeves and care for a school system second to none. Success for an unrivaled faculty fueled by innovation and compassion, and educated by over 250 college degrees. Learn More

Early Release Wednesdays -
New for 2016-17

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, the State of Michigan requires all Michigan schools to have a minimum of 180 student instructional days.  In the past, we had approximately 176 instructional days, leaving us with multiple full days to schedule state-required teacher professional development (PD) hours.  With the change in the law, the District plans to release students early on multiple Wednesdays during the course of the year to provide PD for R-P staff.  The calendar below spells out when those days will occur.  On those early release Wednesdays, students will be dismissed 90 minutes early.  R-P will provide bus transportation as usual - it will simply be 90 minutes earlier than normal.  As a general rule, early release Wednesdays are scheduled for the second and fourth Wednesday of each month except for May, which will not contain any early release dates.
