Red Oak Elementary Reopening Plan

We have now reopened our campus for visitors. The current color for the campus can found on the COVID Dashboard daily. Please be sure that you are self screening and there are no COVID positives in your home. Parents are 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. Our Thanksgiving lunch will take place on Thursday, 11/18. Our daily lunch schedule is below.

Dress Menu!

Good morning! As we move into the fall and temperatures begin to cool off, please be sure that outerwear is within dress code. Any coats or jackets that are not in dress code will have to be taken off in class and stored in a locker or cubby. If a student wants to wear the jacket in class, then they must be in dress code. The guidelines from the ROISD Standardized Dress Menu are below:

  • Outer coats/jackets may be any color but must be removed upon entering the building.
  • Sweaters, vests, zip and pullover hoodies, and sweatshirts are permitted only in standardized dress policy colors. They may be worn in the building but may not extend below the bottom of the back pocket.
  • Red Oak logos and Red Oak artwork are allowed on zip-up and pullover hoodies.
  • Labels are permitted on coats, jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts but must be no larger than 1½ inches by 1½ inches.
  • Jackets must have a closing mechanism (full-length zipper, buttons, or snaps).

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.

Birthday Treats

All snacks and treats sent to school for student birthdays or celebrations must be prepackaged and individually wrapped. Thank you for understanding!

Front Walkers

If your child walks to school from the front side of the building, please encourage them to enter the front of the building. As a safety concern, we would rather students enter through the closest entry point, rather than walking to the back of the building. Thank you for your understanding.
