Counselor's Corner

    Thank you for visiting the H.A. Wooden Counseling page!  It is such an honor, privilege, and blessing to be here to help you and provide you with current information.

    As we begin our district wide transition to learning online for our students and parents, I will be updating this webpage with helpful information for you such as social emotional online lessons, communicating community support for area families, and useful links for you and your students during this time.

    Please know that I am here for you.  I am available through email and phone on week days beginning Monday March 23rd from 8:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m.  You can contact me by calling 972-617-2977 extension 2003.  Leave a phone message and it will appear in my email.  I am checking my email frequently and will return your call.

     

    NEW ROISD Grab and Go Meal Pick-up Guidelines

    Following new guidance from the United States Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Agriculture, we are now able to distribute meals to parents/guardians without the child present in the vehicle. If you have children 18 and under in the vehicle, they will continue to receive a meal without any documentation necessary.

    Red Oak ISD Students

    Red Oak ISD is sending a document to each currently enrolled student which will serve as your verification at meal distribution WITHOUT your student(s). Please print out the email which includes the student’s name, ID #, and campus and be prepared to show it at the pick-up site.

    Non-Red Oak ISD Children

    If your child is under 18, but NOT a ROISD student and not in the vehicle, you may bring alternate verification to the meal distribution site. Please bring ONE of the following documents for verification:

    1. Birth certificate for each child – OR
    2. Report card from the school for each child - OR
    3. Attendance record from the school that includes the children’s names

    For all children 18 and under, either in the vehicle or verified, you will receive breakfasts and lunches. You are reminded you may visit ONLY one meal distribution site per day.

    Distribution Changes

    Starting Thursday, April 3, meal distribution days will change to limit exposure of both families and those preparing and distributing the meals. Red Oak ISD will hand out meals on Mondays and Thursdays following USDA guidelines to cover the other days. We will be closed starting this Friday, so please make plans to pick up your meals Thursday and then again on Monday.

    • Mondays – 10:30 a.m. to noon (Lunches M, Tu., W; Breakfasts Tu., W, Th.)
    • Thursday – 10:30 a.m. to noon (Lunches Th., F; Breakfasts F, M)
    • Locations: Eastridge Elementary School, Schupmann Elementary School, and Red Oak Middle School
