Morning Drop off Reminder

For the safety of our students, morning drop off is in the back of the campus until 7:45 am. Students arriving by car should be dropped off in the back of the building. Staff will be available to assist students as they exit cars and enter the building. Please do not stop in front of the building to drop off students. You must drop off at the back of the building. Students may not walk in the front doors by themselves. Parents wishing to walk students into the building will need to park in the front and will be allowed to walk the students into the foyer, but students will walk to the cafeteria and their classrooms by themselves. If your child needs extra assistance, we will have several staff members available. The tardy bell will ring at 7:45. Students arriving after 7:45 will need to be escorted into the building and signed in as tardy. Parents will need to park in the front of the building.

Treats for school

Just a reminder that any treats brought to school (birthday cupcakes, etc.) must be store bought with the ingredients on the package. Due to student allergies, we cannot allow homemade goods to be shared with other students. Birthday celebrations are held at the end of the school day. Food cannot be shared in the cafeteria.

ROISD Volunteer Program

We invite all parents to come to the school and volunteer in a variety of ways. Please don’t forget that every adult must fill out a background check each and every year. Without this background check, adults will not be allowed to assist in the classroom/ library, field trips, campus events, etc. Background checks are on-line at the ROISD website under the Parent Tab / Volunteer Program.
