Electronic Devices in School
There has been an issue with students using cell phones and smart watches during the school day. Students can possess electronic communication devices on school property; however, such devices should be turned off and kept in their locker during the school day. This includes but is not limited to the following: smartphones, smart watches, Bluetooth earbuds, tablets, etc. If a student is found using an electronic device during the school day, it will be taken away and placed in the Main Office. A parent or guardian will need to come to the Main Office to get the device.
Lost & Found
There are a lot of items in our Lost & Found. Please have your child check to see if one of the items belongs to them. I would recommend labeling all clothing items with your child's name (possibly on the clothing tag) so that if an item is found, we can return it.

Kindergarten Age Requirements
A resident child must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1st in order to be eligible to attend kindergarten.
If a child is not five (5) years of age by the September 1st enrollment eligibility date, but will be five (5) years of age no later than December 1st, the parent/guardian may still enroll the child in kindergarten. The parent must notify the school district, in writing, prior to the beginning of the school year. Notification, by way of a completed Kindergarten Age Waiver, must be received in order for a child born between September 1 and December 1 to be enrolled in kindergarten.
Blessings in a Backpack
"Blessings in a Backpack” is a program designed to provide students on the free and reduced lunch program with enough food for three meals a day during the weekends. This program, administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester, is active in Royal Oak Schools. If you agree to take part in this program during the school year, your child will receive a bag filled with food for the weekend. A bag of food will be put in your child's locker for take home on Fridays. The simple meals may include food like macaroni and cheese, beef ravioli, canned fruit, granola bars, soups, juice and other items. Students will receive a bag every week.
If you would like to have your child participate in this program, fill out the form below and mail it to the board office at 800 Devillen, Royal Oak, MI 48073, or just hit submit on this form. Please be sure to indicate on the form if you child has any food allergies. If your child has a food allergy, you as the parent are responsible for checking all food labels when the food arrives home. Royal Oak Schools, as well as Blessings in a Backpack, will not be held responsible for any accidental food allergen exposure.
