SUMMER TIPS

Summer is fast approaching! We have had a great year and have seen tremendous growth in our kids.


  • It is important over the summer that your child continues to read. Anything that interests your child is a great start.
  • Math facts can be practiced in the car or while going for a walk or bike ride; whether it is addition/subtraction or multiplication/division. Math facts are so important and our students do much better when they are fluent in them.
  • Students will have access to Education Galaxy all summer. User Name is your child’s Lunch number followed by redoakisd and the password is the lunch number again. (IE 12345redoakisd 12345)

Anything you do academically with your child over the summer will help them keep up their skills. This will build a strong foundation for the 2022-2023 school year!


Have a wonderful summer and enjoy your time as a family!

Returning Student Registration is Open!

Please make sure your students are enrolled for the 2022-2023 school year by May 26th.

Red Oak ISD Dress Menu

Hawk Nation,

Spring has sprung and we have six weeks of school remaining.

However, we need to address a situation that is causing safety concerns and will be effective immediately - Wednesday, April 20 - at all Red Oak ISD schools.

Students MUST remove any hood or head coverings when entering or in the school buildings. Not doing so, makes it hard to identify unauthorized campus visitors versus our students.

We have been too lenient, allowing students to enter and remove them during the day or once in class. However, student and staff safety is the top priority and this has become an issue with identifying non-students which is a major factor in that safety.

Dress Menu Guideline Reminders - https://www.redoakisd.org/Page/4505:

  • Students ARE NOT ALLOWED to wear caps, hats, hoods, or head coverings inside the building at any time, unless for religious reasons.
  • In addition, all sweatshirts and pullover hoodies worn in school MUST be in approved colors - solid white, gray, maroon, black, or navy. Red Oak logos and Red Oak artwork are allowed on zip-up and pullover hoodies; any other logos must be smaller than 1½ inches by 1½ inches.
  • Outer coats/jackets may be any color but MUST be removed when entering the school building.

We also remind parents, students, and staff that all visitors MUST check in at the front office and receive a visitor badge. Former students, non-student siblings, and students from other campuses should not be on ROISD campuses during the school day.

Please have a conversation with your children as we will begin strict enforcement on Wednesday, April 20.

We appreciate your support in this matter of student safety.

Afternoon Pickup

ROE dismisses at 3:00 each day. We have noticed recently more students being picked up late. Please do your very best to be here between 3:00 and 3:15. Thank you for your support!

Tardies/Absences

Attention Parents/Guardians.

At Red Oak Elementary it is our desire to educate all students daily. Therefore, it is important that students arrive to school on time and meet the state required 90% attendance rule. So that you are aware, excessive tardies accumulate into absences, consequently an abundance of absences could cause your child to be retained. Our campus attendance committee reviews weekly reports to ensure our students are in compliance with the expectations of our state and district attendance requirements. Thank you for your partnership.

PTA Membership

PTA needs your support! Please consider joining the PTA as a member or board member.

Morning Start Time

School starts at 7:25. Please be sure that you are allowing time for drop off in the morning. If a student is not in line by 7:25, then they will need to be dropped off in the front as they are tardy. If your student needs breakfast, then they need to be at school by 7:20 to allow time to eat.
