Welcome back!  I hope your summer break was full of adventure and a little relaxation.  We are excited to see students for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. Please read the following Roosevelt information.


Important Dates

  • First day of school- August 16th- early release 
    • AM Kindergarten - 10:30 am dismissal 
    • K-6 -  1:15 pm dismissal
  • Back to School Night/Open House - August 23 5:30-7:00pm 
    • Details to come

Be sure to check the 2021-2022 Student Calendar for important dates.




Soft Start

Roosevelt will continue our “soft start” philosophy. Students are invited into the building starting at 8:40 each morning. There will be no morning bells or lining up. Soft start time provides students a gentle start to their day, an opportunity to connect with others as they prepare for instruction to begin at 9:00. 



If you have passed by Roosevelt you have noticed that we are a construction zone. We will have a new field with turf completed soon. The estimated completion date for the gymnasium is spring break. We will navigate the chaos of construction as we look forward to our new building! 


Covid Protocols

I was really hoping we wouldn’t be talking about Covid this year. But, here we are. The good news is we all know what to do. Much of our pandemic operations plan will remain the same. We will wait for the school board to finalize protocols and policies and then I will send out our Pandemic Operations Plan for the 21-22 school year. 


Food and Nutrition

Breakfast and lunch will be free again for the 2021-2022 school year.  Breakfast will be served from 8:15-8:45 each morning for students who would like to eat in the cafeteria before school.



In order to make sure we have your most current contact information, please take a few minutes to update your Infinite Campus account. Additionally, a 1 to 1 Device Responsible Use Agreement and Permission Form, non refundable device damage deposit, and health information will need to be collected. Directions are below:
