Would you like to sub exclusively at Romig?
I am sure you have all heard in the news about the ASD shortage of bus drivers. Because of this, a plan has been developed, which includes three-week blocks where some buses will be running, and others will not. In a nine-week period, all buses will miss 6 of the weeks. This will require families to find alternative transportation for six weeks. You can look on Parent Connect for bus information and most of the bus routes have changed - look on Parent Connect over the weekend to see your bus information.
- Cohort means the group of buses receiving transportation for the assigned three weeks.
- Cohort 1 (Bus #1-38) will receive bussing August 18 – September 9 (no bussing Sept. 12 - Oct. 20)
- Cohort 2 (Bus #39-77) will receive bussing September 12 – September 30 (no bussing Aug 10-Sept 9 and Oct.3 - 20)
- Cohort 3 (Bus #79-116) will receive bussing October 3 – October 20 (no bussing August 18-Sept. 30)

We would love to see you
Looking for a fun way to volunteer at your kiddo’s school?
The Romig School Store is a parent-led fundraiser that contributes to the purchase of much needed academic supplies, sports programs, ChromeBooks, and more. Snacks and drinks are sold at lunchtime, and parent volunteers are needed to run the store.
Each shift is about 45 minutes at lunchtime.
The minimum commitment is a specific day of the week every other week (2 shifts per month).
Or, sign up to work every week if you can.
Parents can invite their student and a friend to help work the store.
Parents will have to complete the ASD volunteer application process. https://www.asdk12.org/site/Default.aspx?PageID=13771
If interested, please send an email to email@example.com.

Romig Dress Code
What is the cell phone/game device and earbud/headphone policy?
We have updated our device/phone policy. Students may have their phones out before school, after school, and during lunch. This allows students to check for messages during the middle of the day. If you have an urgent issue and need to reach your student outside of those three opportunities, call the main office, and we will relay the information. Students may not have their phones visible during class or in the halls. Students will forfeit their phones for the remainder of the day if it is seen or heard. The only exception will be if the teacher clearly displays the device poster on the door. Even then, devices can only be used for specific instructional purpose. The same applies to earbuds/headphones and any game device.
With the influx of additional student drop-offs, we will have some changes to our flow of traffic. Please watch for more updates, which will include a traffic flow map for the beginning of the year.
Walking or ridding your bike
As always, if students are going to walk or ride a bike to school, we would recommend coming up with a group of students within the neighborhood to walk together. There are bike racks in the front of Romig and even though they are monitored on the security camera we highly recommend that bikes be locked to the racks.
Families you may want to look within your communities and develop a carpool option to get your kiddos to and from school. While we cannot facilitate the coordination of carpooling or give out address information there are some carpool apps that might also be useful to you.
City Bus Passes:
Any ASD student can ride the People Mover for free. However, there is a catch. A valid student ID will get students on for free. Last years’ student ID will get students on for free. Additionally, any photo ID will be accepted. Please practice this with your student.
