Updated Arrival and Dismissal Process

Please view the video above for an overview of the changes that will take place starting December 5th.

  • Arrival and Dismissal traffic will now enter the parking lot off of Orchard Lake Rd.
  • Traffic will form (2) lines in-between the school and the bus garage.
  • At the end of the long drive (2) lines will need to merge into one line and turn left along the back of the school.
  • Families will pick up and drop off students in the same location but now moving in the opposite direction (driving towards Commerce Rd).
  • Students will need to exit the car out of the drivers side onto the sidewalk.
  • Cars will still be asked to make a right turn only onto Commerce Rd. after dropping off or picking up students.
  • Students will be allowed to enter the building at 8:05am from the car line.
  • Student dismissal will start at 3:12pm.
  • Please continue to wait until 8:00am and/or 3:00pm to enter the arrival and dismissal lines.

I will be out with Orchard Lake Police on Monday the 5th to help support the change in traffic flow. Please be patient as we transition to this new process.

Thank you,

Mr. West

Focus on Student Attendance

Attendance is one of the most powerful predictors of academic achievement and having your student in their seat, ready to learn for the entire school day will benefit them, their classmates, and our whole school community. Let’s work together to make sure your child has great attendance and can get the most out of their learning opportunities this school year.

We know that there are a wide variety of reasons that students are absent from school, from health concerns to transportation challenges. There are many people in our building prepared to help you if you or your student face challenges in getting to school regularly or on time. We promise to track attendance daily, to notice when your student is missing from class, communicate with you to understand why they were absent, and to identify barriers and supports available to overcome challenges you may face in helping your student attend school.


• Send your child to school unless they are truly sick, such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or a contagious rash.

• Avoid appointments and travel when school is in session.

• Set a regular bedtime and morning routine (including limiting how late your child may use any electronic devices) and finish homework and pack backpacks the night before.

• Have a back-up plan for getting to school in case something comes up (this could be alternative bus routes, roads, or a plan with family members, neighbors, or other parents).

• Communicate with the school about how we can work together to support your child’s attendance.

Do you have students that like to draw?

Well, do we have an opportunity for you! Our school district’s United We Walk Committee has an event each year celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The students have the opportunity to create a design that will be the inspiration for our 2023 United We Walk Button. I would like to personally invite you to encourage your students to participate in the United We Walk Button Contest. Students can draw a piece of art about what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy means to them focusing on Dr. King's message: "I Have A Dream. . .1963-2023. We know that our students are awesome!! Let's give them a chance to share their amazing skills. The attached information will provide more details. Please submit any contest entries to me at no later than Friday, December 9. Thank you for your help, time, and support. (Copies of the form are also available at Roosevelt's the Main Office)

Bell Schedule 2021-2022



  • The doors will open at 8:10am for the 2022-2023 school year. Due to a lack of adult supervision students will not be allowed in the building until 8:10am.

  • Students will enter the building, go to their locker, and then immediately to class. Staff will be present to greet students at the classroom door starting at 8:10am.

  • Students who are riding the bus will be dismissed at 3:10pm.

  • Car Line pickup will start at 3:10pm and will dismiss from the Commerce Rd. entrance/exit.

Minimum Online Deposit

The minimum Family Portal cafeteria account deposit has increased to $20.00 due to the increased fees the district is paying for each online deposit. Currently, the credit card processing company recognizes each student account as an individual item, thus making it necessary to deposit $20 into each account. You can get around this by making a deposit into one student account and transferring funds between your children at no charge. We are working with the processing company to see if this can be changed to a total family deposit minimum. We felt that raising the minimum deposit was a better option than passing the fees along to families. We will keep you informed of changes as they occur. Please direct all questions to the Nutrition Services Department at 248.865.6732. Thank you for your understanding.

Husky PACK Parent Resources

Roosevelt Visitor Protocol

We're excited to welcome back parent volunteers in the 22-23 school year!

Unscheduled visitors coming to the building will not be permitted to enter past the front office.

Drop-in visitors will not be allowed to enter the building without a pre-scheduled appointment. We will continue this approach in an effort to maximize safety & security while minimizing disruptions to learning.

Families are welcome to schedule in-person meetings with administrators, teachers, counselors, and other staff. These meetings should be scheduled in advance and communicated with the main office. The option to Zoom for meetings will also continue to be available.


  • Must have approval from the principal and teacher before volunteering.
  • Interested volunteers must also complete a volunteer form.
  • ICHAT background checks are still required for all non-student volunteers.


If your child is interested in buying bagels on Fridays, we are selling them at $2 a piece. The proceeds will help our 5th Grade Campers! Thanks in advance for your purchases!

Title I Services at Roosevelt Elementary

Roosevelt Elementary qualifies as a Title I building. With Title I funding we are able to provide multiple resources to students that support academic success. Some of these resources include but are not limited to,

  • Intervention support in the areas of reading, writing and math.

  • Before and after school program

  • Summer academic programs

  • Academic resources

This year food services will be providing the opportunity for all students to receive free breakfast but not free lunch. With that being said, I encourage you to still complete the application if you feel you may qualify for services. The amount of Title I funding Roosevelt will receive is based on these percentages.

Free and Reduced Lunch Application
