Important Information to Help Your Student!

What Can We Work on at Home?!?

You may have noticed that your student does not have daily homework. The only time a student should have homework is to make-up missed work from an absence or work that was not completed in class. Here are some suggestions if you want your student to have extra practice.

  • Read daily for at least 20 minutes
  • Practice fact fluency (multiplication & division)
  • Log in to ClassLink and work on Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies in Education Galaxy, or check out Sora, our online digital library.

Dress Code

  • Shirt colors - Maroon, white, grey, navy, and black
  • Pants must be hemmed and no holes or tears - Jeans or uniform bottoms in black, navy or khaki.
  • Practice good hygiene daily

ROE Reopening Plan

Parents and Guardians, we are looking forward to having visitors back on campus beginning November 1st provided we are at a level green at that time. The current color for the campus will be found on the COVID Dashboard daily. Please be sure that you are self screening and there are no COVID positives in your home. Parents will be welcome to join their students for lunch. Please be sure that you bring your driver’s license with you when you come to lunch, and you will check into the office upon arrival. We will have a designated area for you and your student in the cafeteria. Due to supply shortages as a result of COVID, we are asking parents to bring their own lunch. You may also bring a lunch for your student or they may purchase from the cafeteria. We will communicate our plans for Thanksgiving lunch as we get closer, but this will also be a time when parents may join their student at lunch but will be asked to bring their own parent lunch. Our daily lunch schedule is below and we look forward to seeing you soon!
