Book Fair

It's that time of year again: Fall Book Fair! We are so excited that we can provide our students and their families with an opportunity to buy books from our eFair. We appreciate your love and support for the ROE library. When you purchase a book, you are investing in our library collection. Up to 40 percent of the proceeds are given to us to continue to build upon our most treasured resources: ROE's library books. Book fair revenue helps to keep our collection current, relevant, and fresh. See more details at https://www.smore.com/yxwg4

Yearbook Pictures

ROE Yearbook Pictures will be held in November this year. We decided to push back our Fall picture day to allow for our safety plan to be routine before adding an additional event. We will have a schedule for virtual learners to safely come to campus for pictures as well. Watch the newsletter for more information.

Arrival/Dismissal Procedures

Arrival

Bus: Students arriving by bus will have their temperature taken as they enter the building. Students wanting to eat breakfast will get their breakfast and sit by bus numbers in the cafeteria. Students not eating breakfast will sit by grade level in the gym.


Car/DayCare: Students arriving by car or daycare will proceed through the car line. Students temperatures will be taken and then they will be directed into the building. If a student will be eating breakfast he/she may get breakfast and will sit by grade level. If a student is not wanting breakfast he/she will proceed to the gym if it is prior to 7:10 am and sit by grade level. Students arriving between 7:10-7:30 will go straight to their classroom.


The front entrance of the building will open for neighborhood walkers only. We appreciate your understanding with our new procedures.


Dismissal


Dismissal is an extremely important part of our day. We want to ensure the safest and most efficient process to end each day at ROE. In an effort to focus on social distancing we will have a staggered dismissal. We will dismiss in the following order:


  1. Bus Riders
  2. Car Riders/Daycare
  3. Walkers
  4. After the Bell



Please complete the form below to provide your child's plan for dismissal. We know that sometimes plans may change. The best way to make transportation changes is to communicate with your child's teacher in writing. However, if an emergency arises the office can make contact with the ROE front office during the day to inform of last minute changes. In case of an emergency contact the ROE Office at 972-617-3523 before 2:00 pm.


Bus Riders/Daycare

Students who ride a Red Oak ISD bus or daycare transportation will be dismissed at the front of the building.


Neighborhood Walkers

Red Oak Elementary staffers will walk these students to one of three designated neighborhood drop-offs. Students who walk will be accompanied to the drop-off spot nearest to their home. This option is only for students living in the surrounding neighborhoods. All other students should be a bus rider, daycare rider or car rider.


Neighborhood A – Valley Ridge and Autumn Trail

Neighborhood B - Valley Ridge and Shadow Bend

Neighborhood C – Red Oak Road and Foxwood Lane



Car Pick Up

As always, each car will need to a car tag placed on the dashboard. Please be sure to stay in your car while in this line. You may enter the car line from either Red Oak Road or Valley Ridge. If you do not have a car tag, please visit the front office and we will present your tag there.


After the Bell

After the Bell will remain in classrooms/grade level pods during dismissal time. Students must be enrolled in After the Bell prior to staying.
