Roadrunner Red and College Friday

Today was College day as well as Roadrunner Red Day. Every Friday we encourage our students, staff and families to wear Roadrunner spirit wear and/or red to celebrate being a Roadrunner. Of course we also have some fun with it and add a little competition. Each Friday, we select 3 classes with the most Roadrunner spirit. We select one winning class from grades (k-2), (3-5) and McGrath. Each winning class gets a Roadrunner flag that will hang outside of their classroom for the following week to show off their Roadrunner spirit. Go Roadrunners!

We know our new policy is sensitive. This is not intended to be punitive for our families. The intent of the District Attendance Policy is for our schools to build strong positive relationships with families and provide support for students and families. We understand kids will be out sick. We expect families to keep kids home when they are sick. Our intent is to continue to build great relationships with parents and have parents regularly inform us when kids will be out sick and provide us doctor's notes for our records when kids are out sick multiple days. We also know, unfortunately, that some students are refusing to come to school and some parents are not sending their healthy students to school. We are here to help support you.

We know learning occurs and improves when kids come to school. Our District has had a high student absenteeism rate compared to our State absenteeism averages. We are taking steps to improve our attendance one day at a time so kids can continue to grow academically, socially and emotionally. In addition to us building positive relationships with families and offering support when needed and/or when it may be required, we will be building positive incentives at school for kids to be celebrated for good attendance.

Thank you for being a partner with us.

As we close out our 2nd week of school, we find ourselves fully immersed into the 2023-2024 school year. Teachers and staff have been developing positive relationships with our amazing students, while also teaching students routines to support a safe, respectful and responsible learning environment. Our students are responding wonderfully as they navigate through their learning journey.

Roosevelt-McGrath Arrival and Dismissal - Greetings Roadrunner Families,

Please review this very important information about Arrival and Dismissal.

We are so excited to see everyone back at school tomorrow, August 29th. Tomorrow is a half day. Start time is 8:30 am and dismissal is at 11:40 am.

I want to take a moment and focus on our arrival and dismissal process. Safety is our first priority. If you are dropping off your child at school, please give big hugs and encouragement prior to your student entering the school. In the spirit of safety, parents are not permitted to walk with their child to their classroom. Thank you for your understanding. Safety first. Also, you will see fencing located around our west parking lot construction. Students need to avoid going near that area.

Our fist day of school is a half day, 8:30-11:40am. Our open house is also scheduled for Tuesday, August 29th, 5-6pm. Our Open House is typically scheduled prior to our first day of school. However, Roosevelt-McGrath is undergoing construction which is providing many amazing updates. As a result, we are not permitted to have any activities at school prior to the first day of school.
