Royal Oak Schools: A Community of Excellence
Week of 9.27.15
Parking Lot Volunteers
We are looking for volunteers to help in the parking lot and drop-off/pick-up areas. Please let Mrs. Ashburn know if you are interested and we will add your name to the list. Please let me know the days of the week and times you are available. With volunteers we will be able to alleviate some congestion.
Q & A
1. How many fire drills do you have?
We have five fire drills, three lockdown drills and two tornado drills. These are required.
2. Are dogs allowed at school?
Dogs are not allowed on school property unless they are guide dogs (not training).
3. What do teachers do on late starts?
Teachers arrive by 7:50 and attend Professional Development. The professional development is not always at Northwood. Last week teachers in grades K,1,2 and specials met to discuss setting student learning objectives and teacher evaluation. Teachers in grades 3,4,5 met at the Board Office to learn about Writing Pathways.
4. I was at school during the last fire drill and the alarm kept sounding. Why?
The new custodian worked with the alarm company to make sure the alarm will shut off. We should be set for the next one. One of the reasons we have drills is to work out the bugs.
September 30 Late Start (Teachers pick up students @ 9:20)
