School Supply List

We have updated our school supply lists to reflect what students will need when we return for in-person classes. Feel free to use the supplemental resources we are handing our at our Supply Pick Up event as well as pencils and a notebook for virtual learning. We are excited about launching our year!

School Supply List

Did you check out a Chromebook?


Please bring your Chromebook AND charger, or your own device with your name on it everyday. We will be using our devices to access Schoology on a daily basis.

Masks

Masks will be expected to be worn throughout the day with the exception of eating. Please make sure to send a mask with your child daily.

RRISD has shared mask expectations with our community. Here is the updated information.

Morning Arrival Procedures

Due to safety measures, we won't be able to allow visitors/parents to walk students into their classroom. We have several greeters to walk students to class and make sure they get where they need to be! Practice giving a kiss goodbye in the car or at the designated drop off area.

Car Riders

  • All car riders that will be eating breakfast will enter through the back door
  • All other car riders will be guided to their designated doors to go straight to class. 2-5 students will enter the building on Soar Street, and K-1st graders will enter the building at our door on University Blvd.
  • Our greeters will be encouraging social distancing and reminding students of the proper way to wear their masks. They will also ensure that all students get to their classroom safely.
Bus Riders
  • All of our bus riders that will be eating breakfast will enter through the front doorway.
  • All other bus riders will be guided to their designated doors to go straight to class. Prek-2 students will enter the building on Eagle Street, and 3rd-5th graders will enter the building at our LID entrance.
  • Our greeters will be encouraging social distancing and reminding students of the proper way to wear their masks. They will also ensure that all students get to their classroom safely.

Dismissal

We will be having a staggered dismissal in order to encourage social distancing. Our bus riders will be our first group that is dismissed. 1st and 3rd grade will exit through the front doors. Kinder and 4th grade will exit through the Eagle Street door, and 2nd and 5th grade will leave through the LID door. Our walkers are the next group that will be dismissed. They will leave through the front main doors. We ask that parents do not congregate at our front entrance. You are welcome to wait socially distancing on the sidewalk that is directly in front the LID exit where there is shade. Our car riders will be dismissed next. They will exit through our back main door in small groups. Our daycare students will be loaded into the vans in our front drive

What about Recess?

We are so excited to use our brand new playground! The playscapes are just amazing! We have zoned our playground area into 5 zones. This will ensure that classes are kept 75 feet apart. Students will rotate through the zones during the week.Students will be washing/sanitizing hands prior to coming outside and before entering the building.

Let's check out a Classroom!

Students will be required to wear face coverings. Desks are appropriately spaced. Each child will have their own designated space for their belongings. They will need to bring their own supplies to use. Unfortunately, sharing is not encouraged. However, if a student needs to borrow materials from their teacher they will need to place them in a "to be cleaned" bin at the end of the day.

Grab & Go Library Book Pick Up Updates

Additional Pick Up Time: You can pick up the library books you request during car rider pick up on Tuesdays. Our librarian will be at the end of the car rider line by the portables to deliver your books.


New Book Request Option: Your child can use their library account to place holds on specific titles from our library. This video explains the process. Students will receive an email when the books are available for pick up.
