In October, parent/teacher conferences were held at the middle and high school levels, while our elementary appointments will be held this month. Consistent communication is very important to all of us, whether at conferences, via email, phone calls, or posts in Canvas or other tools.


We have many ways to stay connected with you as parents and caregivers, so take advantage of all the best tools we offer, including our new Royal Oak Schools app and the Remind communication tool, which may not be so new for some of you. Throughout the K-12 experience, we count on various amounts of responsibility by our students when communicating, so it will look different at all levels. The more we share what happens bell to bell, the more engaged we hope our families will be in the classrooms and schools.

As the inclement weather approaches, we may need to get in touch with families in an emergency or provide important updates, so please ensure your contact information is up to date in MiStar. The district uses several ways to communicate with families to ensure that our stakeholders have the news they need promptly.

Wishing you and your families a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday and break.

- Mary Beth Fitzpatrick, Superintendent Royal Oak Schools
