Good Evening Roosevelt Families,

Last week was quite a week!  I have become spoiled in my almost 20 years as a San Diego resident, and I have to amidst that the heat got to me last week.  I am happy to see a cooler 10-day forecast for us.  On to the updates:

New Attendance Protocol for Students Leaving Early

We have noticed an increase in students getting picked up to leave early, which has made for a busy office in the afternoons.  A solution our team came up with to improve the process is to ask parents/guardians to have your child drop off early dismissal notes in the morning, and then at that moment students will receive a pass to come to the office at the given time.  This will save the time it takes to get students from their class and the interruption that causes.  In your note, please provide:

Your child will then be at the office when you arrive (they of course need to remember!), and after showing your ID and signing them out, you will be on your way.  Thank you for your understanding as we try out this new system!  

Music Fundraiser

The annual online RMS Music Fundraiser kicks off this Wednesday, April 13!!
