  • Become familiar with our student handbook.

  • Complete the self-screen below every day before entering campus.

Getting to and from school

Heavy Construction Traffic: The construction on Royal Ave is creating increased traffic before and after school. Please plan ahead. Student tardies will not be excused due to traffic.


No Trespassing at St. Rose: There is no parking, drop off, or pick up for Royal Students in the St. Rose parking lot. It is private property and those who use it may be cited by Simi Valley Police Department. Thank you for being respectful to our neighbors.

COVID Protocols

  • All parents/guardians must screen students before leaving the house (see graphic below).
  • Students must wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Students may take off masks indoors to eat or drink.
  • Masks are recommended outdoors, but not mandatory.
  • Visitors will not be allowed on campus. To the extent possible, meetings with counselors and teachers we be done via Zoom.
  • If the school learns that a student is considered a close contact* the health clerk, nurse, administrative assistant, or administrator will be reaching out to the parent/guardian as soon as possible.

Close Contact - Someone who is within 6 feet of an infected person for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. This is true whether or not the individuals are wearing a mask.
