Incoming Kindergarteners

If you have an incoming Kindergarten student or know of someone who does, registration is open for next school year. Please complete the registration packet and turn it in to the Board of Education Office located at 800 Devillen, RO, 48073 between the hours of 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you need a packet, you can find it online at http://www.royaloakschools.org/district/enrollment/ or you can pick one up from the Main Office at Upton.

Students who are Sick

Just a reminder that children who are sick should remain at home. Students should be fever and symptom free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This will help to keep any illnesses from spreading to others. Don't forget to call the office and report any absences!

Prepare for Cold Weather

Please make sure your children have winter coats, gloves, hats, and boots at school to prepare them for the cold weather that is expected this week. Snow pants are also recommended as students love to play in the snow during lunch recess.
