***Important Reminders***

Student Dress Code

As the weather gets warmer over the next few months, we're spotlighting our district's dress code expectations and policies. Please be sure your student is in compliance. The link below will lead you to the Student Parent Handbook. You will find dress code information on pp. 95-97 of the Student Parent Handbook.

Closed Campus During Lunch Periods

Roosevelt High School, along with other NEISD campuses, are closed campuses, including during all lunch periods. Students are not allowed to leave the campus for lunch at area restaurants and return to campus. Doing so may result in disciplinary consequences. All students at Roosevelt High School may receive a free breakfast and a free lunch in our school cafeteria.

Student Sign-Out

When signing students out for appointments or for the day, parents and/or guardians are required to come into our Attendance Office to sign students out. Students are not allowed to just walk outside or meet parents in the car. Our attendance clerks will then call your student(s) out of class. Thank you for working with us to ensure your student(s) are properly signed out and accounted for.

Bus Safety Reminders

Safety at the bus loop is important so no one is injured and our bus drivers can provide transportation for our students! A few reminders for bus safety:

  • Students must stay behind the white lines in our bus loops at all times.
  • Students may not chase a bus.

Please follow these two guidelines to ensure the safety of all bus riders. Failure to do so may result in injury and/or suspension of bus privileges.

Reminder- NO Outside Food Deliveries

Students are not allowed to have food deliveries to Roosevelt campus at any time (from Uber Eats, grub hub, restaurants, etc). Thank you for your understanding.

Student ID Initiative

Our campus initiative of Student IDs for each student is successfully progressing. Student IDs and lanyards were issued during student picture days.

Students are expected to have their school ID on them at all times. Students can wear the lanyard with the ID or have it clipped to their backpack.

School IDs are required for entrance onto our school campus after 9:20am, into our school library, and to leave for CTEC or other campus programs including Co-Op.

Students who still need an ID card can obtain one free of charge in the AP Office before school 8:00am-8:40am or during their lunch period. Replacement IDs are also available should an ID card become lost.

Let's continue to support this initiative to support campus safety!
