Hello Rocket Families: on Friday the CDC came out with the recommendation that masks on all school buses is optional moving forward. Whitefish Township Community Schools will follow this recommendation and starting Monday 2/28/22, masks on the buses are going to be left to the discretion of parents. Please reach out to the school if you would like your child to remain masked while on the bus or in classes and we will support you.

Due to the storm warning, the Friday morning games have been cancelled. Parents, players, coaches, staff and refs will not have to drive in the weather. The games for tonight are still on! We will be monitoring the weather and will be in contact with Beaver Island and Island Airways. This year, B.I. has played a total of 3 games. The Paradise Rockets are doing what we can to get both schools some games. Please be patient with the situation as every decision is based on TRAVEL SAFETY. Please stay tuned and I will update you throughout the day as I get word of their travel check-ins. Thank you! Mr. Gross

Rocket Basketball Venue Change Due to several factors, the “game plan” has changed. The single most factor is flight safety and the storm headed towards Beaver Island. We will now HOST Beaver Island. The game will be at 5:30 PM with the girls first and the boys game after. They will stay the night, eat breakfast and we will play at 8:30 AM. (Girls first then boys. They will be 6 minute quarters due to travel arrangements) Please feel free to share this message and GO ROCKETS!!! Mr. Gross, Athletic Director

Good morning. We have a few positive covid cases at the school today that were found through testing. Those individuals have gone home to quarantine and the Health Department has been contacted so they can start tracing close contacts. At this time, we are still above our 75% attendance mark and will keep going as planned. We shall see what the next few hours hold.
