Back To School Information for Parents
I know many of you are wondering when you will be able to find out who your child's teacher will be. This will be made available to you on Parent Portal on August 27.
Curriculum Night will be on Tuesday, September 21, from 6:30-7:15 (DK-2), and 7:30-8:15. This event will be held virtually.
VISITORS TO THE BUILDING
We are still limiting visitors to the building especially before and after school. Please drop your students at their designated exterior door. We want to limit traffic and provide the safest and healthiest environment possible. Thank you for cooperating with us in this matter!
Homework Club is available for students on all Late Start Wednesdays from 8:20-9:20 a.m. Please click on the following link to register for Homework Club:
Masks will be required to be worn by all staff, students, and visitors while inside the school building. This is a recommendation that has been made by the Oakland County Health Division. By having all people wear masks and keeping at least a 3-feet distance from one another, this will help to prevent having whole classes from having to quarantine.
In a K-12 indoor classroom setting where all students are wearing masks and additional prevention strategies are in place, students who are 3-feet or greater from a student who tested positive will be exempt from quarantine.
DISTRICT CHROMEBOOK RETURN
If you borrowed a district Chromebook, you may have your child bring their device to school between these dates: 09/07/21-09/11/21. We ask that you ensure when returning the Chromebook, please also include the Chromebook charger.

Special Education Program Updates
BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK
In light of the tough economic times facing our area, we are attempting to help Royal Oak Schools families by making sure that all of our children have enough food. “Blessings in a Backpack” is a program designed to provide students on the free and reduced lunch program with enough food for three meals a day during the weekends. This program, sponsored by the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester, is active in Royal Oak Schools. If you agree to take part in this program during the school year, your child will receive a bag filled with food for the weekend. While we are remote, the food will be delivered to your home by volunteers. The simple meals may include food like macaroni and cheese, beef ravioli, canned fruit, granola bars, soups, juice, and other items. Virtual and high school children receive bags every other week, PreK-Middle school students will have food delivered weekly to the school.
If you would like to have your child participate in this program, fill out the form below and mail it to the board office at 800 Devillen, Royal Oak, MI 48073, or just hit submit on this form. Please be sure to indicate on the form if your child has any food allergies. If your child has a food allergy, you as the parent are responsible for checking all food labels when the food arrives home. Royal Oak Schools, as well as Blessings in a Backpack, will not be held responsible for any accidental food allergen exposure
